Fabulous Finds!

I just wanted to share a consignment store that I pop into a few times a month to check out their treasures. I think this place has great stuff and good prices. They price their items at a starting amount, and then the longer it's there, the price goes down. I have been known to go back in a few days later when the price goes down to get the bargain. Each piece has a tag that tells you the dates that the prices will change. It's a gamble though because if the item is really great, you run the risk of someone else buying before the price goes down. "Ok great, so what's the store?" you're asking. Well I'll tell you. It's Next to New and it's on Burnet. Doesn't look like much does it?

I love it though and I've found lots of great things here! So here are some rad chairs from Design Within Reach- they were there yesterday so if you like them... Get your butt over there! They were $175 for 4 chairs which= $43.75 a chair!! You can't beat that with a stick for good style!
I would consider buying these if I already didn't have a bigillion chairs in my garage waiting for work!

Here are some other things I have found in the past that I thought were cool:
The mirror- not the scarecrow! I think this would be such a cool accent for a Powder Room- esp. if it had some funky wallpaper! 
There was also this mirror I considered buying and painting black for over our bedroom dresser, but I didn't think Merrick would like it.
And this buffet I thought could be a great accent piece painted in another color- the inserts in the top were stone, and I loved the Asian inspired hadware on the doors! 

So what do you think? Stopping by next time you are the area?
