I recently shopped at Made InThe Shade, and it was the worst shopping experience I ever had. I was treated with complete disrespect, especially by the owner, Sheri Arnold. They kept chasing after me trying to sell me stuff that I didn't want. And, the stuff that I  did want ended up costing a fortune.

I was lucky that I found that out before they charged me anything. Do not make the mistake that I did. There are other antique shops in the world. I would shop at every one before I went to Made In The Shade and Sheri Arnold. They are all a bunch of scam artists.

Absurd complaint! from VERY satisfied customer

AUTHOR: Lizzie - (USA)

I have been shopping at this store for years and I have found the store owner, Sherri as well as her staff to be extremely helpful and absolutely NOT pushy at all!  If there is something in particular I am looking for, one may offer to walk me through the store to find what it is I'm looking for - but the store does such excellent business - they seem to be completely satisfied with my visit whehtr it turns out to be a window shopping day - OR a day when I make a large purchase!  

In fact, I have come even with the express purpose of asking for advise on fixing a piece of furniture I bought elsewhere - or on style choices for my log home - and though the owner and her workers could have easily recommended that I buy all I need from them - they have actually made other suggestionsa and given me cost-cutting 'do-it-yourself' tips.  

I have shopped in thrift/antique shops where owners/workers are pushy - but this is NOT that place and to descripe Sherri that way is absurd as for as many times as I've shopped there - if she had it in her to be pushy - I'd have had to have witnessed it at some point.  

While it's important for us to share with other shoppers the negative experiences we've had - it's equally important to share the positive experiences we've had - and for me - shopping at Made in the Shade is a pleasure and the store is a treasure trove of great finds - I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Made in the Shade is a GREAT, FUN place to shop

AUTHOR: brain1stmouth2nd - ()

I've been to Made in the Shade, in a hidden little antiques town in North Jersey. I like to shop there, or sometimes just look around. My mouth is on the floor as I read this guy's claim - 'they chased me around' to buy things that 'cost a fortune.' His whole story didn't make sense. I've been there a dozen or more times over the last ten years and never knew Sheri's last name. 

They are one of the best-priced shops in New Jersey. Shopping there always takes me on an hour-long stroll through the old house - now full of antiques, collectibles, repurposed and hand-crafted decor. No one has ever followed or watched shoppers when I was there. They greet you, tell you to holler if you need anything, and say 'see you soon' when you leave. Go there, see for yourself. The inventory is never the same - I've seen stuff come in and out in the same hour. Low prices mean high volume, and Sheri moves a lot of stuff. This guy clearly has a beef with her. Maybe she chased him out. lol
