On 7th Street north of Glendale Ave there is a sign hanging on a freshly painted building for Kitchen Switchin', a consignment boutique. This consignment boutique has a dedicated niche, gently used high end kitchen goods. A red Kitchen Aid professional series mixer sits on the floor waiting to be tagged, surrounded by a cook's dream of kitchen tools (some still in their original packaging), an imported Italian espresso maker, ceramic dishes, cookware, and glass ware. Dare we mention the stacks of cookbooks?
The idea was cooked up by Christa and Jim Kent, both of ArtGecko Productions, when Christa was cleaning out cupboards for a garage sale. The store is set up like the small house it once was, with an entertainment area, kitchenette, and even a playroom to keep kids busy while the adults shop. Items for consignment are currently being accepted with the opening planned for after Thanksgiving. We always joke about swapping out our kitchen cupboards for something different and new. Now we can.
