Shopping Consignmemt: The Red Collection

I love exploring new (to me) consignment and thrift stores in my new area. I'm a HUGE fan of salvaging the past into something new for today. Savvy shopping for secondhand style finds is also a great way to curate quality pieces for a home, but without spending an arm and a leg for the craftsmanship, and sometimes history. One of the consignment stores I've visited here in the Triad area of North Carolina is called The Red Collection. I've found a lot of great bones and lovely pieces at both of their shops, located in Greensboro. Sometimes, it's good to leave the finish as is, and just clean it up a bit, and sometimes, a fresh coat of paint + new upholstery can breath new life into a very traditional piece to update it for today. Here's a peek at some of the finds I've spotted at The Red Collection...


Love the design of the doors on this china hutch...


Loved these doors too...

Petite ├ętager ... 

Great hardware - a pair of Century end tables...


Great storage piece for a kids room or guest room...



 Good bones and beautiful hardware - vintage Broyhill chest of drawers...

 Both high ($565) and low ($18.95) busts...

Even HPMKT showroom finds like Gabby are being consigned... I've been in quite a few consignment shops, and I have to say, their pricing system makes it easy to know when the next markdown will be, but you may not want to chance letting that find get away.

Baker coffee table in brass & glass...

Great Federal style mirror...

Side table heaven!


 Hello Greek Key!

 Perfect for a transitional style dining room: Sheraton Style sideboard...

 Lovely bench for an entryway - I'd leave the black & gold and re-upholster (probably with dalmatian dots!)

GORGEOUS NAVY velvet sofa...

Chair heaven!!

Great shield-back chair - perfect for a writing desk or dressing room - just needs to be re-upholstered...


COTY 2015 - Marsala - Flamestitch Chevron Wingbacks...

 And for the coastal collector - a fantastic over-sized and shell filled glass top coffee table (I'd probably paint heirloom white or grey).

I've enjoyed 'hunting' here, and have even scored a few new pieces for #HarmonHouse. Can't wait to head back and discover new treasures!

  2. I love The Red Collection on Holden. I keep forgetting about the one on Mill St., even though it's closer to where I live. Looks like it's well worth checking out! I'll have to run by there next week.
