That’s especially true of our furniture pieces. Instead of IKEA, you can get American dressers, desks, chairs, dining tables, occasional and side tables and bookcases from every era – Victorian to Craftsman to Art Deco to mid-century modern.
We just brought in a gorgeous handmade dresser that came to us from a family in Tennessee, who had owned it since the 1930s. We’ve got Eastlake-style oak pieces, drop-down desks, and even an elegant half-circle coffee table that has been lovingly restored with Dixie Belle chalk paint in a beautiful neutral shade.
Now the only question is: Of all the wonderful vintage pieces we have at the Warehouse, which ones will be included in our July 4 flash sale?
That’s right: Tune in to our regular Wednesday live event at 10 AM on July 4 on our Facebook page here and find out what’s on sale for Independence Day only! The sale will slash the price of who knows how many pieces, sometimes below the price we paid for it. We’ll open the doors at 10:30 and close at 2 PM, so don’t wait – the beaches are closed anyway because of red tide, so why not shop instead?
And speaking of Dixie Belle paint, remember that we offer classes in all the techniques. Have you ever thought about organizing a class for kids, such as Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, or just your neighborhood’s young ‘uns who are bored this summer?
Painting is always a fun activity, and kids especially love making signs and using transfers to decorate small items for themselves or for gifts! Just call us at the phone number below and we’ll get started!
And remember: If you haven’t been to the Warehouse lately – you haven’t been here!
