If you haven’t been to the SWAP shop (in the slightly rickety building a wee down the street towards old town from its sister store, Quality Furniture) it’s a must. Under new management as of a few months ago, the new manager is x-naying the kitchy/tacky in favour of some rather nice items! And the prices are wicked!
For instance, for $399.00, this was available.
$1249.50 for this genuine antique wardrobe
And this little table / wine unit was only $59.00
I imagine these items are long since sold but you can bet there are equally great treasures available there at a fraction of the usual price. I’ve bought three items to date and all of them have been in great condition and are integral parts of my home! Yay, reusing! Yay, great deals!
