Sshhhh. Do you hear that? Listen. Hear the Decor angels singing loudly from the heavens?Well, they are. They are singing the praises of UbberHaus in Dublin, Ohio.
My pal Mandy and I met there last Sunday for a little shopping fun. I arrived ahead of Mandy and did a quick once over. By the time she got there I was breathless with delight and had already started a mini-pile behind the counter!
Frames for $3.00 you say? Yes, yes indeed.
A bench that is ugly and oak-y, but could be painted in a myriad of delicious colors for $45? Yes, once again.
A Country-French type chair that gets me a little closer to this:
for a little less of this:
($75?). YES, she cried! (Sorry).
That doesn't count all the little trays, urns, and other tschotzes....
Mandy was equally impressed. She scored 3 identical frames, another large frame, a giant gold mirror with lots of cool detail, an urn, and 2 chunky candlestick pillars -- all for under $50! Plus, the best part of shopping with Mandy is that she is a Mathematical Savant. When something was 80% off, I could tell her the list price and in a mere sixtieth of a second, she could compute the final price like freaking Rain Man. I loved it.
Needless to say, Mandy and I are now planning a monthly trip.
So, if you are in the greater Columbus area and looking for some new loot, check it out -- you won't be disappointed. There is a ton of great, clean stuff (that doesn't smell like moth balls or cat piss like some of the Goodwill stuff).
OHHHHH, and...one more thing. Check back please because I am going to post my Master Bedroom Mood board soon and I need some input on what COLOR to paint the ugly oak-y bench!
