Chic on the Cheap: Consignment

by Laura Casey Interiors on February 5, 2009

If you want to update a little without spending a lot consignment stores are a great resource.  I went on a bit of a hunt to see what I could find. Charlotte’s South End Exchange (click for website) is a great place to start. I spent some time with Laura and she was tremendously helpful and friendly. Consignment shopping takes time and patience, but with some of both you might find some great things!

This bell jar lantern is a STEAL at $150 (I like the B&W photo behind it too)

Pair of punched tin lamps with silk shades $175

5′ x 7′ Bakhitiari rug is $327 and would like great on top of a sisal

Pair of bamboo benches $165 (paint with little cushions!)

Sounds like you had a fun trip. Happy to have found your blog from HC’s recent post.

I’m going to enjoy starting at the beginning of your blog and working my way to present day. One of my favorite things to do with a new blog.

Also love the Amy Butler fabric on your header. I have it in my bathroom!

What great finds! Another fun store if you are doing some work is Habitat ReStore – we have two in Northern Viriginia. Builders and homeowners donate gently used cabinets, fixtures, and appliances and the profits go to Habitat for Humanity. I have a friend who found some awesome stained glass there too!
