Everything Home Upscale Resale & Consignment
29862 Woodward Ave. | Royal Oak, MI 48073 | (248) 629-7010
Jennifer Awdish didn’t seek out the resale business; it found her. Always an avid fan of estate sales, Awdish’s own estate sale in 2011 prompted customers to seek her help organizing and running their own sales.
After experiencing swift success in the metro Detroit area estate industry handling hundreds of sales, Awdish opened Everything Home as a luxury consignment shop. In 2015, the business moved to its current location on Woodward in Royal Oak, where it has become a local favorite and Best of Hour Detroit multiyear winner.
Awdish has certainly had challenges with the Royal Oak store. A small electrical fi re prompted extensive repairs this past summer, but now she’s back in business.
“I can choose to cry or laugh about it, so I choose to laugh and stay positive,” Awdish says. “I look at it this way: I got an opportunity for a new beginning.”
A grand reopening is planned for this later month, and valued returning patrons and new alike will love it even more. A treasure for those who value high-end designer furniture, Everything Home offers exquisite home décor at more affordable prices than design centers.
Often, Awdish is called on to help a family liquidate a home and decades of memories. “I feel a sense of gratitude that families know I’ll take care of them,” she says. “It’s a reward in itself.”
Awdish also works with two local nonprofits, the Chaldean American Ladies of Charity and Humble Design.
