From the Consignment Shop to the House

A while back I presented one of my favorite consignments shops

that has wonderful things for all things home.

If you missed that post, you can see what I am referring to

as my favorite consignment shop.

I presented one of my finds there in this post of my sunroom

of a Chelsea House Chinoiserie table.

However, I found another piece there that I want to share with you today

and the items that my friend Sherri took home with her too!

Do you spy something new in the stairwell?

Yes, it is the Renoir (reproduction of course) painting by Ethan Allen Galleries.

It was love at first sight.

Here it is hanging in the consignment shop.

I can tell you that the cost of this painting was like buying

an inexpensive canvas artwork piece from places like HomeGoods.

The painting was hung in the stairwell

replacing the mirror that was relocated to the sunroom.

I love how it changed the look in this area

with such great color and interest.

Now on to what my friend Sherri did with her finds.

She bought something on this table at the consignment shop.

It’s the silver Champagne bucket….it’s a beauty and was a great price. (around $40.00)

Its new home is almost like the one in the consignment shop, only prettier.

Typically, there is a beautiful tea set on this silver tray,

but for today, she is showcasing this silver Champagne bucket

along with flowers from her garden.

There is one more thing that she bought,

but somehow I failed to get a photo of it when it was in the shop.

It is a print by the artist Don Richard Eckelberry.  “Ringed Necked Pheasant”. Circa 1977.

When we brought it home, her hubby had already researched the print

and found another numbered print on eBay.  The last bid was about  5 times higher

than what she had paid  at the consignment shop….so it was truly a great deal!

When I am in the area, I will scoot into the consignment shop to see

what goodies they have and there is always many beautiful new things to look at!

Do you have a favorite shop that you love to frequent?

Lately, I have been looking for things for my granddaughter’s room,

not so much for me, unless it is something I cannot live without!

I will still try and shop the house to refresh my home!

I have completed my 3rd day of 97 things that I am letting  go!  To be shown soon!

Now on to 96 things to toss or donate.

Have a most beautiful day!!!

  1. What a beautiful picure you found. I love how it looks there- it’s really perfect! Your friend Sherri’s ice bucket is a beauty. Love how she decorated both the buffet and hall table. Her new picture was a great find. You two did well! I wonder how many things I’ve gotten rid of since January- I’ve made multiple donations. Feels good to do it!

  2. Beautiful picture hanging over the stairs and I like your friend’s purchase, too. I use my champagne bucket in the kitchen to corral my kitchen utensils by the stove. Glad y’all got great deals on the paintings.

  11. It all looks so incredibly nice. I really love your style and how everything is put together so well.

  12. What color are your walls? The art and accent pieces just seems to work so well with it.

  13. You find the nicest things at your favorite consignment shop. Taking down the mirror and hanging the picture on the stairs was not an easy job. I hope your husband is tall!
    I am still being inspired by your efforts to purge. I’m working on that too.

  17. Shirley…love the painting….love Ethan Allen. When we purchased our home 30 years ago I decorated with their French Country case goods that I still love today.

    I noticed that fun small bench in the same picture. I’m looking to put a small bench in my foyer.
    Any suggestions where to shop? I do want it sturdy enough for people to sit on for taking shoes and boots on and off.

  18. What a find, Shirley. The painting is so pretty in the stairwell. Oh, to live near that consignment shop!

  19. Love the Renoir! And the way your friend styled the champagne bucket it so pretty! I have a very similar one we got for a wedding gift, and I need to use it more often, great inspiration-

    Shirley, I love your newest find, and it fits perfectly in your stairwell! I love to decorate with pheasants in the fall. Your friend’s artwork would work beautifully with my new pheasant pillows (chuckle). BTW, anyone looking for pheasant pillows, or any pillows for that matter, should check out this fabulous company called Throw Me A Pillow. David and his wife are the sweetest people you could ever work with; just a great family-owned business that really cares about it’s customers, which can be a rarity these days.

  21. The Renoir looks gorgeous especially with your plates. Very pretty. It does make that space so pretty. Great find.
    Happy Weekend.

  23. Oh Shirley, I love the picture. What a great treasure. It looks perfect in the stairwell.

    The silver ice bucket is also a great find.

    Happy treasure hunting.


  24. This must have been a fabulous consignment shop. Your painting looks gorgeous hanging in your foyer stairwell!
    Always fun to find treasures that speak to us and that don’t cost a gazillion dollars. 🙂

  25. Great finds, Shirley! I especially love the painting.

  26. I always love to shop in thrifts and consignment shops. You never know what you can find… The Renoir does look lovely. One small change goes a long way…

  27. I wish we had a good consignment shop nearby. There is one I used to frequent but it’s an hour out of my way now. I agree with Pinky, it looks like you and Sherri have similar taste. 🙂
