When Ryan and I were moving out of our last house, I thought that for our next grown-up house, we should get new furniture. Like brand-new. We’ve always bought our furniture off of Craigslist or from garage sales because we knew that we would be living in a temporary house so the idea of spending a lot of money on furniture seemed silly.
Turns out it still does! Even though we plan on staying in our new house for awhile, it still doesn’t make sense to blow our whole house budget on expensive pieces. That’s where furniture consignment shopping comes in! There are some really nice stores here in Charleston that sell affordable, clean, high quality pieces that are really fun to hunt for!
Here’s our first little honey we picked up this week (at Next to New if you’re in the area). I think she’s going to go by my new office:
Hunting for furniture that we can get for a good deal is something that both of us get into which makes it really fun. Here’s what else we are in the market for for the new place:
-desk table and chair for me
-night stands for the master bedroom
-big coffee table to go with the new living room furniture
I’ll let you know how we do!
