Since I do a lot of staging of client's homes for my real estate business I have found that Fred Meyer is a great place to go and get good deals on candles, candle holders, pillows, artwork and more. I've been very pleased with the overall appeal of their products and I like them better sometimes than IKEA because there is a range of styles to choose from and not just modern European. Just before I left on a recent, and much needed, vacation I went to FM to pick up bedding, lamps, lighting, candles and some other items for a new client's staging. It looked great after all was done and the professional photos that we did really did shine because of it. We sold the condo within a couple of hours of going on market. I'll continue to go back to FM for my staging needs and the bonus is that I often get to use these items in my home once certain seasons go by and styles and color trends change so I get added use from my purchases including making my guest bedroom look comfy and cozy for friends and family that stay with us.
Even better is that they have some really good sales and in-store specials. I look for these to keep myself on budget on these projects.
