Default Bargains & Treasures

Sailor and I are going furniture shopping (lamps and other little items), this week. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions.......Bargains & Treasures is the only resale shop on my list so far......and if time permits, (we are renting a car), we may go to the Markets of Marion... on Friday....

According to my numbers, I am a new user with less than 10 posts........that is the reason I posted here.......

Thanks all, see you at Crispers Friday at 3:00p.m.

Hi, we were able to get things we needed from Habitat for Humanity and from Craigs list.

On Craigs list we checked in both Ocala and Orlando.

Have fun.

I just visited Bargains and Treasures recently for the first time in almost a year. I used to recommend B & T to everyone for consignment furniture. But now I'm finding it a bit disappointing, prices seem to be higher and quality seems to be a bit less. Perhaps it's my imagination.

Neerly New Furniture on 441 has some really nice items. We bought a beautiful wood desk and the price was very reasonable.

I think you're right, Barefoot. There's seems to be less selection and higher prices. Could it be the season?

Barefoot, I just bought a fabulous futon from Bargains and Treasures and put a couch and loveseat on consignment with them. I had originally bought the couch and loveseat from them a year ago for about $300 cheaper than the price they put on both my pieces. The man who delivered my futon and picked up the couch and loveseat priced the two I pieces I put back on consignment.

When I told him it was wayyy more than I'd paid a year ago, he said I could price it cheaper, but he didn't recommend that. Uh, okay. What do you do?

I told my husband their prices have skyrocketed. He said 'tis the season because of the part-timers. I just wanted to ditto what you said about the prices.

I think they have gone up too. I go down there two three times a week. I am looking for just the right tropical looking lamp or fishy looking lamp or shell looking lamp for our lanai. Also a recliner that is not reclinerish...in the right color. Earlier in the season recliners were $185. I don't know about lesser quality, but things are really picked over, I am there enough to see the merchandise shift daily. I wish I was raking in the dough like that. Very lucrative, it looks to me.

Good for them. But just remember what made you successful, please.

Default B and T prices

I am a frequent shopper at B&Treasures, and the manager defintely raises and lowers prices according to the season. While the seasonal folks are here, prices are much higher. Wait until April or May, and prices will drop again.
