About Stevan’s Consignment
I can’t believe it has already been 6 years since I opened Stevan’s Consignment. I remember working in corporate America, thinking to myself, if I am going to work this hard I might as well be working for myself. I sublet half of the front part of Stevan’s North Scottsdale location and agreed to merchandise the entire showroom for the owner at the time and work weekends in exchange for lower rent. My plan was to offer design services and sale all of the great inventory I had accumulated over two years.
I remember sitting outside the North Scottsdale showroom with a coworker and she told me I would be the owner of this store, that it was in God’s plan for me. I spent the next two weeks calling and sitting in the landlord’s office, waiting to speak to them in hopes of convincing them that I wasn’t just a kid and I could do this!
I took a leap of faith and signed a one year lease agreement. Six years later, Stevan's is now 10,000 sq ft and offers high-end furniture consignment, interior design services and estate sale services. I am married to a wonderful man, Mekell Baldwin, and I have two beautiful little girls, Soul and Sarai. I don’t believe in coincidences. I believe in destiny and I was destined to have a love for people, furniture, fine art and interior design.
I could not have done it without all the hard work and support that I have received from family, friends and employees over the years.
Three Generations of Stevan’s Consignment (3G)
I am excited to say….Stevan’s 3G has a very strong team with a ton of experience and knowledge in high-end furniture, handmade rugs, original art, bronzes and antiques. Combined, the team has over 75 years of experience in high-end furniture and interior design. Brett Seaton, Stevan’s store manager, has been in the furniture, interior design and staging business since 1998. He spent 5 plus years in the model home industry and was a merchandiser for some of the largest stores in the valley.
Most recently, Brett has spent 10 years in the furniture consignment world. Mark Bianucci recently joined our team and brings with him an extensive knowledge of fine art, antiques and antiquities. Mark has many years of interior design experience with “engaging eclecticism” as his trademark. Julio Gomez has 6 years experience in the upholstery and fabric industry. He brings with him custom drapery and upholstery design, along with an in-depth knowledge of fabrics that allows him to assist clients in selecting items that meet their lifestyle needs. Barbara Myers (Mom) brings with her 40 years of administrative experience.
Mom is the one that keeps all of these creative minds on track and focused. McKenna Zastrow has been with Stevan’s Consignment since the beginning. She started out answering phones and greeting customers. Now McKenna handles our web development and marketing. Last but not least, Mrs. Bernadean Fuller extraordinaire, owner of the original Stevan’s Furniture and Interior Design, has been my teacher, my mentor, my friend and a wonderful grandmother. Grandma still comes in to help stage the floor, give design tips to customers and help me any way she can.
