Whether you’re a dealer or just someone searching for that special piece to complete your shabby chic apartment, we can help you find what you are looking for. The products we buy and sell capture diversity in styles and tastes, so we have something for everyone at The Picker Knows–furniture, artwork, glassware, vintage signs and jewelry to just name a few.

Locally-owned and operated, we at The Picker Knows will do what we can to help you find hidden treasures from over 400 of our vendors in our 25,000-square foot showroom.
