Up-cycle, Recycle

I have found some amazing consignments shops recently, a vintage store, a designer store and a furniture store called Around My House Consignment. You know when a second hand furniture shop is good when you have interior designers coming in and taking all the good items and the Fairmont Hotel send their unwanted hotel furniture. One thing these lovely shops have in common they all have high end items and their costs are low. I love to recycle if I can and purchase lovingly used items because if you know what you are looking for you can get some quality products for considerably less than the mass producing stores.

I now own a dresser and side table and a vanity all painted in FAT paint and the pieces work perfectly in our bedroom. The store restore furniture, paint them, re-upholster and they can custom design too. They also schedule workshops.

Not only do they have a great selection of furniture they also stock, china, soft furnishings and vintage items.

Great place to browse without pressure and there is always a steady flow of customers.
