I'm moving this week- and had almost no furniture.
So, at a friend's suggestion, I headed to Threads Etc. to take a look around.
What a found was an AMAZING store, with knowledgeable & personal staff (it's family-owned and operated), and some really fantastic deals.
There's something to be said for the eclectic array of furniture and home accessories in this place. They've got something for everyone- from antiques, to pieces direct from the Merchandise Mart, to some really funky art.
I ended up purchasing a sofa/chair set, a bed frame, a kitchen table [that needs a little love], some gorgeous old chairs, and my favorite find: a distressed turquoise/brass-knobbed dresser/mirror & nightstand set. I even found a flat-screen TV in perfect working condition! ....All without breaking the bank and at a fraction of the cost of new furniture.
Make sure to check back often, as they have new pieces coming in each day (pieces go on sale depending how long they're been in)
...I've got my eye on a china cabinet (crosses fingers its still there and on sale next time I visit!).
I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for great, gently used, unique, reasonable furniture.
Visit, explore, and have fun in their giant warehouse (2 floors)
