Best Home Furnishings
With three locations, Treasures has more than 15,000 square feet of gently used furniture. “We pride ourselves on being a fun place to shop,” said Lynne Schleper. “We don’t buy anything new, ever. That sets us apart from other stores.” Instead, their inventory is 100 percent consignment. If things don’t sell immediately, they’re marked down more and more as time goes by. If something has been in the showroom for more than 60 days, its price drops 75 percent. “There are some really good bargains to be found. But if people wait too long, it’s not going to be here.” Treasures is now a drop-off point for Cell Phones for Soldiers, an organization that collects old cell phones, sells them back to phone companies and receives phone cards, which are then sent to soldiers overseas.
The furniture’s not free, but the design services are. Mountain Living, formerly known as Mountain Comfort, has been in operation for a dozen years. “It’s still the same location, the same great products and the same great staff.” The Eagle-Vail company is currently building a larger showroom in Eagle that will accommodate even more furnishings. “We offer a full line of furniture and home furnishings for every home in the room,” Jones said. Nest, located next door to Office Depot in Avon, has a mix of brand new and consignment furniture. From antique paintings to a delightful fabric-filled room, there are all kinds of discoveries to be made. The easily navigated store carries large armoire-sized pieces, and smaller item like handmade leather backgammon sets.
