Annie's Home Consignments - Steamboat Springs, CO 

A favorite among the locals in Steamboat Springs, the name "Annie" is commonly used as a verb, as in "getting Annie'd." Storeowner Annie Tisch says it means when someone "plays the wait-and-see game too long and misses out on a coveted piece." Even Tisch has been "Annie'd" a time or two. So at Annie's, the longer a piece stays unsold on the showroom floor, the lower the price. The store also carries original artwork and jewelry. Hours: Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. 1755 Central Park Ave., Steamboat Springs; 970-870-1300; steamboatannies.com
