There is something wonderful happening in Ocean Beach. No, I’m not talking about the mouth-watering food or the bikini-fueled summer that is coming to a close.

You will now notice that when you make that turn down Newport Avenue, you are not surrounded by the usual smoke shops and thrift stores. The corner of Newport and Sunset Cliffs Boulevard — specifically 4845 Newport Ave. — is becoming a mecca for antique and consignment stores.

San Diego residents from Carlsbad to El Cajon are coming to Ocean Beach to spend their day “antiquing” by the sea. The newest edition to the corner is Designer’s Consignment, which opened its doors in early 2014.

Designer’s Consignment is an upscale home furnishings consignment store. It only sells quality, new, gently used and vintage items for the home. Walking into this store, you are welcomed by the smell of mahogany and the warmth of the many pieces of art on the walls.

Store owner and interior designer Renee Alison is an American Society of Interior Designers and a certified antiques dealer with an obvious eye for design and sophistication.

Whether you’re looking for that perfectly handcrafted bedside table or an in-home consultation to revive those 18th-century dining room chairs the cat seems to be all too fond of, you will find it on the corner of Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach.
