In 2011, a man from Tulsa, Oklahoma, came to PBS’ “Antiques Roadshow” with five Chinese carved cups made from rhinoceros horn and found out that they were worth more than $1 million. He didn’t find them at Circa (though we can’t be certain they never passed through the doors, knowing how much shuffles through the McIntire Plaza spot), but the point is that you never know what you’ll come across. With more than 10,000 square feet of pure treasure trove, something just as valuable (or, at the very least, meaningful) could be lurking in a corner. In fact, the same goes for Consignment House. The Downtown Mall shop stocks everything from designer furniture (think Eames and Bertoia) to oriental rugs.
