Let's Do A Little Shopping

A warehouse full with no Air conditioning and a hot day! Whew lets see what we can find!

Once a year or so Ethan Allen has a clearance. The clearance is held at their distribution center. Basically the items are the floor models from their stores, customer returns and damaged items. There is everything there from furniture, to accessories, lighting, artwork, bedding, window coverings, pillows and even rugs. Anything you would find in an Ethan Allen store. All items are on sale from 40-80% off the retail price. My friend Jill and I received the invite in the mail and agreed that we thought it would be worth going. You enter into a sea of sofas and chairs and then realize just how large the warehouse is. Yes we would definitely be there awhile! Here are some overviews and some highlights of items.

Oh how I wish I had a place for this. I said that about a lot of the things I looked at. I loved the sliding library doors on this cabinet.

Look at this stunning Mahogany piece. The sale price in this piece was $800 and change. It was well worth it.

This was another lovely. A gorgeous chinoiserie cabinet. I know Ethan Allen also makes a gorgeous secretary that matches this. It had a sold tag on it by the time I spotted it. Not that I had any place to put it but I may have tried!

Anyone looking for a dining room table? They had plenty. Average price on these were $500. Most every one was in perfect shape.

How about a chair to go with those tables? Many to be had. If you didn't like the cushion that was on them you could rifle through the huge boxes of chair tops they had. There was a plethora to choose from in any fabric imaginable.

Recognize these twin four poster beds? They were in the boys room on the last HGTV dream home. $400 each!

Another lovely four poster. This one was a queen and check out the price!

Need an ottoman? I wanted one there but there was a lady sitting on it the entire time. It was a great hounds tooth tweed in tans and browns rectangular, with wooden legs and tufted top. It would have lent itself well to my bonus room dream. But dang it that lady would not get off it!

This sofa settee would have looked great pulled up to a large farm table. I have a chair in my family room in this same red check/plaid. Plus I am getting ready to do some other items in my home in this fabric as well. But it was too large for my areas.

Sofas? Yes they had em and there were some lovely lovely ones there. Down stuffed and otherwise.

I remember seeing this one on the floor in the store in 06 when I ordered my family room sofa. Now it was selling for $500!

Art work? Oh yea and some of it was a steal. She was only $75!

Cute matting!

This chandelier was truly hard for me to walk away from. I was visualizing it over a large farm table. I would paint it a nice red! Look at that price! Incredible! Originally $449!

I adored these Navy pillows. Probably because the embroidery on them reminded me of a monogram! I eyed them for awhile and even carried them around but the color kept me from buying them. *sigh*

Bedding? Window coverings? Pillows? They had them. All 80% off!

These red striped window panels were marked anywhere from $7 -17. "Will the real price please stand up?" A great deal at any of those prices!

Thanks for joining me on my little shopping spree. There was so much more to see but I had to limit it! I did buy something. It "may" even be in one of these pictures :-) Come back on Met Monday to see what I bought and see what I did with it! Have a great weekend!
