But this furniture store has such a good website that we will go when we can. They don’t indicate their prices online so it’s hard to say if they are competitive.
I just bought a pre-owned home furnished with American Drew. In the next few months I will be selling on TOTV. Sorry I couldn't share before you needed it. Sometimes you can get a great bargain from for sale by owner.

What have you heard about City Furniture and do you know for a fact that it's true?

And if the second post is seconding that comment, is it really fair to say that without some supportive facts???

Neither of these comments is fair to the company without verified facts to support what they are saying.

To be clear I was not endorsing City Furniture. We have bought some pieces from them and have been satisfied. One recliner we purchased was damaged and they promptly replaced it - no problem. What I was saying was that they furnish the TV models and they have packages available for every model of home. You can make up your own mind if the furniture fits your needs at a fair price. I assume that Babettes also has packages for TV homes but you would have to check that out.

Showcase furniture in Mount Dora is excellent. They have a website. Easy to work with, deliver to the villages, and good prices. Just have one question. Where did you find a Victorian house in TV? Seriously the thrift stores are full.of that style. Seriously buy what you want, but you can get some really nice stuff second hand and a lot of it is that style.

If time and distance is on your side, go to Hickory, North Carolina to the Furniture Market and you will see EVERYTHING, and all on sale.

Wow!

Thank you very much, that is exactly what we needed to know! We may have to fly up there and check out the furniture set we are looking for.

MC, go back and read my post slowly. It's not what I HEARD about C/F, it's what I READ about C/F. I'v also spoken to 2 employees who have confirmed my information. BTW, they were both employee's of "Southern Lifestyles" before they closed their doors.
