With over 80 photos to share with you this morning – I need to be short with my intro but I did want to clarify some confusion around our markdown policy.
When shopping in the store and if you check out our online Furniture Gallery – you’ll often see items that are marked down 25% (or more!). What exactly is our markdown policy? Great question with a bit of a frustrating answer.
The short, simple and honest answer is: we don’t have a systematic markdown policy. Instead a special pricing team reviews our inventory at least once a month (during non-store hours) looking for pieces to mark down that have been around for a while and which, apparently, we priced too high (trust me – our aim is always to price it right the first time). That said, we often have furniture which we know is priced correctly (from doing online research, or the donor provided value, or from one of our volunteer experts) – but is either a bit more expensive then what you and I can afford and/or is so unique that the item doesn’t have broad appeal. These pieces will probably never get marked down (or marked down after a much longer time on the floor) and are quietly waiting for that special buyer who’ll appreciate both the item and the value.
Ultimately, we desire to maximize everything donated to us while offering excellent furniture at good prices to our customers - with the final objective to raise funds for the programs and services at Outreach Community Ministries – which we ALL can agree is an excellent and worthwhile goal!
Now onto those photos…
very nice Thomasville coffee table priced $45; matching end table (there’s only one) for $20. Both solid wood and have a few scratches – but overall very nice pieces of furniture (I especially love the chucky legs on ‘em)
gorgeous leather and fabric sofa by Sam Moore – cushions are down filled – leather is naturally distressed (so minor dings add to the character!) – in excellent condition – priced $395
this is a legit older metal birdcage that probably shouldn’t be used for birds but could be used as a cool decorative piece – priced $48
unusual and neat wicker and wood chair – which is very comfortable – priced $25 (looks to be in perfect condition too!)
here’s another unusual piece – faux suitcase end table! Priced $55
this upholstered chair and ottoman are by Ashley Furniture and both are in excellent condition – priced $145 for the set
AMAZING retro Thomasville side chairs (there are two of them) – show wear but overall in good condition. Here’s the weird thing – they sit very low to the ground. Did they originally have wheels on the bottom of the legs to raise them up? Priced $65 each
I might have shown you this camel back sofa before – but it’s so pretty and only priced $55!
I’m totally in love with this muted green leather tufted ottoman – priced $35 (there are some small stains that just add to the distressed look)
and then look at these absolutely gorgeous Pennsylvania House leather pieces! Truly beautiful and both in fabulous condition! The loveseat is priced $295 and the sofa is $395 (note the nail-head trim which you know I love!)
here’s another amazing item! Green stained wood buffet by Lexington. Missing one of its chucky knobs and has a small piece of the green finish off on the side (but the piece is there so just needs to be glued) – priced ONLY $85!
two totally amazing blue swivel chairs – both in great condition – priced $55 each
super sweet pedestal table with one leaf and four chairs – solid wood (chairs are very heavy) – some minor scratches on table top. I love the design of the chair backs! Priced $175 for the whole thing
wonderful neutral SLEEPER loveseat (we don’t often get in these smaller sleepers) – shows some wear – but overall in good condition – priced $65
though the fabric and cushion on this loveseat could use a refresh – the wood structure is different and very cool! Priced only $25!
clean lines and modern design on this four piece wall unit – mirrored back and lacquer doors – two of the pieces are missing their interior lights (see hole in second to last photo where a light should go?) – otherwise in very good condition. Priced $75 for all four pieces
very well built, solid oak swivel stools with lovely country style – priced $75 for all five (that’s only $15 a stool which is AMAZING!)
oh man – if you ever wanted a one trillion* piece sectional with gobs of options for configuring them – then this is your lucky day! Each piece is a separate part. The whole thing needs to be cleaned – but at $95 for ALL you are getting such a deal!
*one trillion is actually not correct though it is NINE pieces (two of the nine pieces are the ottomans) which is pretty close to one trillion when you’re talking sectionals. Sorta like dog years.
prettiest, freshest plaid loveseat I’ve ever seen! By Brandywine Design – priced $150 and in very good condition
three white bamboo and glass nesting tables – all for $45
wonderful Child Craft dresser (side with door has a rod that pulls out and where you can hang things) – priced $35
neat, old waterfall dresser with triple mirrors – largest mirror is cracked – priced $95
fabulous retro chrome adjustable, swivel stools in very good condition – priced $35 for a set of two (and we have four total – so if you bought all four it would be $70 plus tax)
four very well built (see how the legs screw into seat base? That’s one way to tell how sturdy and well made something is) solid wood children’s chairs – by KidKraft. Priced $40 for all four (do need some touch up)
upholstered side chair by Lane – in very good condition – priced $55
wonderful roll top desk priced $55
six parson’s chairs (two with arms) in excellent condition EXCEPT they need to be cleaned. Priced $120 for all six. GORGEOUS oval glass top table with wood base – reduced 40% from original price of $350 NOW $210!
have you ever seen a beautiful, professionally designed space that includes an old ripped leather chair? I’m serious – they exist! Anyway – if you like that look than this chair is for you! You can tell it originally was an expensive piece of furniture – green leather chair with tufted back and seat (one button on the seat is missing) – but then rather stained with a rip on the arm. Price? That’s the best part – we’re selling it for only $2 – yep, two bucks! It’s back by the used mattresses – so go grab it! The green leather ottoman shown earlier in this post matches this chair if you want to buy both pieces
Gotta get going, dear reader! Hope you have an excellent day!
