Recently, two long-time North Central residents, Terri Mainwaring and Linda Klein, cooked up an idea to mix an up-scale kitchen consignment store with a venue to offer BYOB kitchen-related demonstrations and top it with a partnership with The Assistance League of Phoenix. The sweet result is The Classy Kitchen, located at 7118 N. 7th St. (previous site of Kitchen Switchin’.)

“This part of town has become a real niche in quality consignment shopping,” explained Mainwaring. “And we wanted to help round it out by specializing in kitchen and dining wares and table and wall decorations.”

“Since our store is in a converted home, we have a cozy little kitchen where friends can gather and watch a myriad of demonstrations—from international cuisine to updating your tired-looking kitchen,” Klein adds. “We can customize any class for a group of 10 to 12 people.”

Inventory changes daily as the store continuously take in new consignment items to help fill their pantry. They’re looking for top-quality small appliances, dishes and china, crystal, glassware, cooking and bake ware, serving dishes, bar items, unique kitchen gadgets, tabletop décor, etc.

Classy Kitchen is open every day except Monday. Visit for more information.
