For any local readers, you may want to stop by the Changing Places consignment store on 100th Street in Urbandale. They are having their third year anniversary tent sale. I ran in today and they have a nice assortment of furniture (sectionals, contemporary and traditional pieces, several dining sets), as well as lots of art (some prints, some original) and accessories.
Here are a few things that caught my eye:
An old nightstand for $30 - this could easily be sanded down and repainted
With the right lampshades, these white ceramic lamps could be really nice ($25 each)
A pretty wall mirror
A vintage Barcelona chair (not sure if this is "authentic" or not), for about $500. I love the butterscotch-colored leather on this chair!
This fun printed chair was reasonably priced - around $80
A very cool Henredon table with inlaid top, curved sides, and tulip-shaped handles (and a cool price to match; this guy is over $1,000)
A pair of short barstools in great shape (about $50-60 for the pair)
Everything is an extra 10% off today through Sunday. Hope you can find something fun!
