Could You Ever Buy Used Furniture?
If you want the highest quality for a reasonable price; you care about the environment; you have creative vision; you reject cookie cutter decorating… discover high-end consignment shopping. If you’ve never considered buying “gently used,” you might want to reconsider.
Buying from a well-run, local consignment shop could change your approach to designing your special space. Consignment shopping is one of the fastest-growing segments of retail because it’s fun—you never know what treasures you’ll find. These shops are not flea markets or thrift shops. They are not typical furniture stores with all the same merchandise for months on end. Many consignment retailers, like Sequels Home Furnishings, only show the finest name brand furniture and accessories in styles from Contemporary to Mission to Country French. They clean, repair, and refresh furniture, so much of the inventory looks brand new.
You might think twice about spending $30,000 for a top-of-the-line Stickley brand dining room set. Find the same set on consignment for a quarter of its original price. You can score heirloom quality with solid wood and beautiful craftsmanship for a fraction of what you’d pay new.
Did you know that more than 4 million sofas are tossed into landfills every year? More than 2000 trees are lost every minute of every day. 80% of things we buy are only used one time. These are alarming facts that should get us thinking about reusing, repurposing, refreshing or reimagining how we decorate our homes. Consignment shopping helps reduce the burden on our landfills.
Bring or send photos to Sequels Home Furnishings and let our design consultants work with you, or let us display your items for sale and they’ll pay you back! Sequels is always looking for quality home goods from the recent past or hand-made artworks from today that are made responsibly and with respect for our planet.
