One of the perks of my new at-home status is that I can shop around at different stores that I normally don't have the time to peruse. In doing so, I'm finding that it pays to shop around. Literally.
Let me explain. I stopped into a "designer's consignment store" the other day, and it was filled with all sorts of unique (and overpriced) pieces.
While these pieces are both interesting, they're both priced at upwards of $1500 each. Interesting, but not that interesting, if you ask me.
I saw a dresser similar to this second one on Craigslist for $100. (Of course, it's not there now - it must have sold!). Granted, it wasn't an exact match, but definitely similar, and I'll take similar with a price difference like that!
Like I said, this "Designer's Consignment" store was filled with some
Duck sled anyone?
I did like these vintage baseball glove and catcher's mask though.
What's interesting, is that I found virtually the same table, in three different places, with three very different prices. The Designer's Consignment store had it for $200 (but alas, I have no picture, my bad).
Another shop I stopped by had it for 50% off - only $30.
This one has a little more detail, but is priced at $100.
I've seen these types of tables on Craigslist as well, so it definitely pays to shop around.
Speaking of Craigslist, I might have to make this a regular series - "Friday Craigslist Cray Cray". I can't help myself - there is so much good material out there!
Do me a favor - finish coloring your Easter eggs and take the poor baby out of your photos before posting about your moving sale. Although he is a cutie.
And then there is this carved heart chair - be the first in your neighborhood to own this one of a kind piece for the low, low price of $275! Too bad you can't cozy up with your sweetie in this Love Chair...
Have a fantastic weekend!!
