Half off vintage and modern furniture this weekend!

Posted by on Feb 25, 2017 in Antiques & Vintage, Blog, Flash Sale | 0 comments

THIS SATURDAY & SUNDAY (FEBRUARY 25 – 26, 2017),

TAKE 50% OFF FURNITURE!

This weekend, take half off blue & orange tag furniture.  From a wide selection of lamps and chairs, handsome bed frames, and dressers of all sorts, to a minibar, glass display cases, and a hand-puppet stage, we’ve got a lot of fun stuff right now.

Below are some examples. Our inventory changes by the minute, so we can’t hold items or take calls on specific items pictured. Come on in for a treasure hunt!

Items with missing or damaged price tags will not be sold.  This sale does not include built-in cabinetry, select specialty items, items listed online on eBay or Etsy, or items from our consignment partners. May not be combined with other sales.  

Chairs priced from $5 (or $2.50 with the sale!)

 

Lamps only $19 – $25 (just $9.50 – $12.50 this weekend!)

 

Beautiful oak chest of drawers for $98 (or $49 during the flash sale!)

 

The dresser is $125 (or $62.50 during the sale)… but do you notice that little holes on top?  This dresser has actually been turned into a plumbing fixture!  Put a vessel sink on it, and you’ve got a gorgeous vanity for your bathroom.

 

We don’t usually take upholstered sofas, but these came with an entire house that was being deconstructed and donated to us!   Couch and loveseat set for $275 ($137.50 this weekend), Needlepoint chair on left is $85 ($42.50 with the sale), Coffee table $54  ($27 with discount) and matching round end tables $44 each (or $22 during the flash sale).  Chair on right has sold.

 

This cool little vintage bar is $150 (but just $75 this weekend!)

Sidewalk made of natural stone remnants outside of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida.  We’ve also seen scraps used for garden paths and garden bed edgers.

 

 

If you need some shallow shelving in your kitchen, pick up a few backsplash scraps that match your existing counters!

 

Caterers like to use granite scraps for fruit and cheese boards too, because it keeps the food cool. This picture is from a company that sells them on Etsy – it looks like they’ve softened the broken edges with sandpaper, and attached some kind of legs to the bottom.
