It’s a little difficult to describe what you’ll find inside Second Chance Antiques & Furniture in downtown Everett, Washington. They’re on Hewitt, west of Rucker right between The Loft Coffee Bar and Hot Rod Heidi’s Vintage Closet.
“It’s the best shop in Everett,” owner Bryan McClimans told me with a smile. “We’re really eclectic, with six vendors plus all of my stuff.”

The store is much bigger than it looks from the outside with multiple rooms filled with antiques, collectibles and used furniture.

“This all started as a garage sale,” Bryan said. “I was living at a house and the owner was going to pay me to clean out the garage but once I saw all of the stuff he had in there I told him I’d rather sell it and split the money with him than he pay me to haul it to the dump.”

After that Bryan began holding garage sales most every weekend, eventually finding a spot at 34th and Broadway. Then on January 1st, 2013 he opened Second Chance at its current location at 1307 Hewitt Avenue.

In addition to having a large selection of used furniture Bryan makes tables and lamps from his workshop in the back of the building.

Better yet, stop by in person as merchandise comes and goes on a daily basis and with a total of seven vendors including Bryan, there’s a lot to check out.

They’re open Wednesday – Sunday from 10 AM – 5 PM. If you’d like to call, Bryan’s number is (425) 622-4681.
