Just go to thrift stores – I would give this a good review, but as a preppy person I walked into this store and the owner was cocky about knowing vintage clothing. You never know who you're going to run into. If you want to find what they have at better prices, just shop the Value Villages in Charlotte, or typically Atlanta which I've seen them shopping as well. There's actually 11 Value Villages there and their stores are bigger and better. More Salvation Army's and Goodwills as well along with multiple other locally owned thrift stores. These guys don't have the cream of the crop vintage, mainly because Charlotte thrift stores are getting tapped out by unemployed wannabe ebay sellers.
Everyone must check out the new loctaion – The new location is so all that.I LOVE it!
I hope you guys run that junk shop Century out of business
I love the lighting and bold colors
Thanks guys for all your help
cool girly stuff mostly, but I liked it too,,, – Very nice staff, a bunch of cool stuff to look at. The store is very organized. Don't know if they were employee or owner, but the person working was very nice.
Cool new store in a very cool neighborhood – Very cool merchandise and merchandising. The whole neighborhood was awesome, although some places I wanted to visit were closed on Wednesdays. I will come back on the weekend to spend the day when I get paid. The pretty blond girl working there was very sweet also. Even though I did not buy anything today, I will go back soon.
They always have something waiting just for me – I can buy at least 3 things for the price of 1 at the junk shop called Century up the street.People dont be rude about the name here,i' rather fond of it.I wish this place was bigger and had more furniture i buy clothing here thats clean and if they had sofas i bet they would be clean also.That means alot because if i want a furry dog hair couch from the mid century shop i'll find one in the alley and i think i saw one in that alley by that shop.Anyway i find Hong Kong to be the best shop for vintage around anymore in Charlotte.Sorry you guys have to deal with bs people
You're an idiot, hobielover – To be disappointed that a store called HONG KONG isn't filled to the brim with Chinese relics is like being upset that an APPLE computer isn't made from fruit.
Perhaps a cellphone call would have saved you a trip. Or are you still baffled as to why a cellphone isn't made of cells?
Definitely a joke, right? – OK, the only reason why I went to this place was because someone told my mom that there was a "Chinese consignment shop" on Central. So, I stopped there after school to check it out, and it wasn't open. The parking lot was lousy, and it made my car bump trying to get into the parking lot. I went to the McDonald's nearby (which had lousy service, by the way. It took 15 minutes to bake apple pies!) to wait for the place to open. Then I went back. It was 12:00 and still not open. I peeked through the window and was very disappointed with what was there. I saw some shiny clothing in the back though and, still believing I may find the used qipao (traditional Chinese dress, which I think could be described as "vintage") I was looking for, I waited. When the owner finally opened, I was shocked that I'd been tricked into going into a Goodwill, basically, and that I'd wasted gas to get there.
I don't get the name. Why name something "Hong Kong" if it's got nothing to do with anything Chinese? I'm very into Chinese culture, so I think it's a horrible misuse of something Chinese to advertise some old clothes no one wants. "Hong Kong" means "fragrant harbor" in Cantonese, and that's not what I thought of when I entered this store. I want truth in advertising, and the sign implied something entirely different from what was actually in the store!
Unbelievable selection! – This store was just what I was looking for in terms of vintage shopping here in Charlotte- fun, friendly, and affordable! Although the store was small, the clutter was kept to a minimum. It was well organized by style, and the only con was that I couldn't buy it all! Service was great as well - the salesclerk was friendly but not overly pushy or conversational like some other stores. I definitely think this store warrants a visit!!
Best place to find that unique shirt or coat that nobody else in town will have. – I love this store. People are complaining about the parking but apparently they haven't seen the Huge lot right there next to the building that has ample room for parking and plenty of space to back up and get turned around in. This is The place to go for a unique shirt, dress, pair of pants or shoes, even a funky belt or jewelry. I love being able to tell people about it when I go out with friends and everyone asks "Where did you get that shirt". It's like shopping at Goodwill or Salvation Army without having to sort through all the junk stuff that they usually have. The owner is extremely helpful and friendly. Some of the other people that work there are a little less helpful but if you go by when the owner is working, she'll help you find that perfect something. The best part about this place is that if you have something in your closet that you're not wearing anymore and you take it in there she'll usually give you a couple bucks of store credit. Try doing that at Salvation Army or Goodwill. Go check it out. You won't be dissappointed.
Not worth the hassle of parking there – I wouldnt and havent gone back.The parking sucks,staff was not so nice and the items were the same as driving down the road to the Salvation Army.I wanted to like this place and i was let down.
