During my day off yesterday, I went consignment furniture shopping for the first time!
I'm in the market for a few new-to-me pieces, and since I'm on a budget, I thought this would be a good way to start. Since I've never consignment furniture shopped seriously before, I thought I'd better do some research!
First, I jumped online and searched shops in the area, as well as asked friends if they knew of any good places! I got a ton of suggestions, and narrowed my list down to four different stops all within a 15 minute radius.
If you're from the triad area, you've probably heard of most of these!
1. The Red Collection (original location)
2. The Red Collection (warehouse)
3. Adelaide's Vintage Home and Garden
4. Shoppes on Patterson
What I'm looking for:
Going in a place with TONS of furniture can be a little overwhelming, especially if you don't know what you're looking for. Yesterday morning, I made a list of items I was keeping my eyes out for.
1. A set of matching lamps
2. A set of matching bedside tables
3. A small sofa/couch or bench for the end of my bed
Basically, I want my room to look exactly like this!
Throughout my trip, I saw a ton of furniture, but only a few pieces close to what I wanted. Here's my personal favorite!
Why yes, that is a hot pink, velvet couch!
Something about this piece stood out to me, and I'm still thinking about buying it! I might wait until November 19th. when it's $30 cheaper, then go back and see if they still have it!
After three long hours of shopping, I only came home with this cutie! I couldn't resist that pretty of a bow!
As always, Have a Sweet Day!
