Consider consignments stores if your tastes and budget elevate you above thrift stores but you still like shopping for good deals. Many antique stores are also set up for consignment but I’ll save them for a separate post. For now, let’s emphasize function and fashion over historic value.
Where does the furniture go when hotels like the Marriott, Westin and Opryland Hotel decide to freshen their furnishings? These folks take upscale items and make them affordable for discriminating buyers. This ain’t Goodwill but prices are way below typical furniture stores.
A very wide variety of items including mattresses. Whether you want a bedroom suite or a table lamp, you’re likely to find something in your zone. Formerly in multiple locations but now consolidated at 8105 Moores Lane in Cool Springs.
Lots of glassware, silverware, bowls and lamps along with furniture including antiques. It’s in Belle Meade and I get a sense that this is where the old-money folks part with their belongings.
If you’d like something funky or retro, I think you’ll like it at this little store on Eighth Avenue South about a mile south of Remix. Crushed velvet chair, anyone?
A few doors down from the previous show. They have a mix of consignment items along with direct sales. Best prices if an item has been sitting around a while. Curious small knickknacks along with furniture.
In Donelson, across the street from Johnson’s Furniture Discount. A small shop packed with a selection of furniture (including antiques), furnishings and lots of things you stick on shelves to make your home look homey.
E&C also touts itself as upscale with its collection of window treatments, rugs, furniture, lighting, glassware and more. It’s in the 100 Oaks area but a bit hidden. When you see Home Depot and Staples, you’re very close.
Iin Cool Springs skews very upscale but compared to new prices, you’re getting a bargain. The well-curated website makes it easy to shop before you drive.
