Know Your Neighbors at Another Man’s Treasure
Another Man’s Treasure is a Mom and Pop success story of hard work and determination. “What we love about it is that we are in charge of guiding our own destiny,” say owners Dennis and Dottie Gibbs. “We have always been able to make the decisions necessary to navigate through changing economies, styles, and customers.”
For more than three decades, Another Man’s Treasure has embraced the mixing of new and used furniture. It all started back in 1991, when Dennis and Dottie Gibbs worked for a computer software company and Dennis also had rental property. Dennis left the company to start the business and Dottie joined him a few years later. From his work with rental properties, Dennis discovered that there was a need for quality furniture at a reasonable price. He started with used furniture, and gradually started adding new Kentucky Made products. From there it grew into what it is today.
“We have always believed that every home is truly a mix of New, Used and Unique items. If we need to quickly pivot with a customer or the economy, we can, without approval from anyone else. On the flip side, in all of those decisions, and with all of the long hours, we have put in a lot of blood, sweat and tears. Running your own business is by no means for the faint of heart.”
In 1999, Another Man’s Treasure took on a “DBA” and began selling all new furniture. “Little did we know, but our customers missed our old concept and would actually walk into our store and tell us how much they missed the original concept. So in 2006, we decided to bring [it back], but with a new twist. This is when we began to carry overruns and discontinued furniture in addition to the New and Used. Once we returned to the original concept, our customers thanked us and appreciated that we listened to them.”
They now carry 70 percent new furniture as well as closeouts —always searching for unique pieces. Some of the closeouts are from recognizable brands, “like Pottery Barn, West Elm, Haverty’s and Macy’s to name a few. Our mission has always been to offer a quality product for a reasonable price.”
Have the perfect piece you’re ready to let go of? They may “buy it outright. We make it simple. Fridays between 11-3pm people are encouraged to bring in pictures on their phones or Ipads of the items they want to sell.” Once a price is agreed on, pickup is usually scheduled within a week, and they’re currently “working on streamlining the purchasing process on-line for even greater convenience.”
“It is so rewarding to have a customer come in and personally thank you and tell you how easy you made the process of selling their furniture to the individual who tells you that you are always their first stop and how much they appreciate the quality, style and selection that we consistently have available for them.”
