Tucker DAVISON — Triple A Consignment & Resale has many things to choose, from clothing to electronic equipment, and some unthinkable items as well.

“We have a little bit of everything,” said Kristina Wood, one of the owners of the shop at 319 N. Main St. in downtown Davison.

Wood owns the store with her husband, Marzine, and their three children: daughters, Autumn and Ashlie; and, son, Alexander. They live in Davison.

The family opened the business April 1.

“It’s been pretty good so far,” Kristina Wood said.

The store stocks more than 500 items, Marzine Wood said, including sporting and hunting equipment, baby items, china, toys, Dutch shoes, scare crows and collectibles.

“Everybody likes a deal,” he said.

One of the items the store owns is a Barbie and Ken quartz talking clock made in 1983.

Kristina Wood, a former General Motors Co. employee, said she researched the clock online and it’s selling for $85. Her price is $40.

“We will give people an affordable deal,” she said. “We will give them a variety without breaking the bank.”

An unusual item on consignment is a steer’s head that a customer brought in a few days ago.

“It’s a little different,” said Marzine Wood, a network engineer.

Kristina Wood said she’s going to research and determine it’s worth.

“I can’t begin to think about what it would go for,” she said. “I was pretty surprised to see something like that.”

Depending on what people bring in, the shop will keep 40 percent to 60 percent of the retail price, she said.

The shop also has a dressing room for people to try on clothing.

Customers will find good prices, Kristina Wood said. A Black and Decker drill press costs $100, a Coach knockoff purse costs $25, golf clubs starting at $150, hockey equipment at $2, formal clothing wear at $40, doll clothes at $2 and match box cars at 25 cents.

Someone even brought in a pair of men’s leather pants that were made in Italy, Kristina Wood said.

She said the idea to open the store came after the GM plant she worked at closed in October.

She said she didn’t want to sit at home. She and her family discussed opening a business.

“We just said we were going to do it,” Kristina Wood said. “We took our chances and now we’re doing it.”

The couple named the shop in recognition of their children. They took the first letter of their names.

The shop is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday- Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and by appointment on Sunday.
