Unconventional furniture shopping
I'm not in the market for any new furniture at this time, but like most of you, I can't resist thinking about what I'd do with an interesting piece when I come across it.
This weekend, I stopped into London's Apothecary, which has moved to a new location in Charlottesville and is closing their original store. London's carries almost every sort of lotion and potion you'd ever want from the bath, from the well known L'Occitane to the more obscure. I've never made a "quick" trip to the store because there are so many interest products on the shelves.
As I wanted around the soon-to-close store, I noticed that the fixture were for sale. Some were pretty impressive. It never dawned on me that store fixtures could be pretty enough to use at home.
That's a matching set, sitting back to back.
That piece is probably about 8 feet long!
There was even a beautiful, old looking sink looking for a new home.
That big, antique cash register was for sale, too.
Guess someone changed their mind about removing the faucet.
There were some modern, Ikea looking pieces, too. If I was in the market for Ikea furniture, I think I'd pay extra to have it already assembled!
Now I'm curious. Has anyone ever bought store fixtures before?
