If a tourist came to Cincinnati, Ohio and asked me what does my city have to offer my answer would be shopping and eating. If you are in the know, Cincinnati is an excellent place to secondhand shop (and eat). With so many local thrift stores and consignment shops, the odds are ever in your favor. One shop that I stop in regularly is Legacies in Hyde Park.
Legacies is a consignment shop that sells furniture, home goods, clothing, and accessories. I love the variety that I find in Legacies the furniture is always in good shape, and the jewelry selection is so unique. It’s the perfect place to shop when you’re looking for pieces that you won’t see anywhere else to give your home those extra personal touches. You can donate and shop at Legacies, and the proceeds benefit the Cancer Support Community.
Here a few of my thrifting rules:
See Past the Moment:
Look at the shape of the furniture before you judge the color or fabric. If you’re buying furniture on a budget and you see a couch with a great shape in a color you don’t like, consider getting a sofa cover or large throw blanket to bring the piece back into context for your space. If you have money to spend, and you have found a piece that looks similar to a high-end piece that you have had your eye on but you dislike the upholstery buying the piece and having it reupholstered is the perfect option for a custom design.
Art on A Budget
Can’t afford to invest in art, it’s all good, the best place to find interesting pieces on a budget is at the consignment shop. I always manage to find a gem every time I’m in Legacies. When searching for art secondhand look for pieces that have quality framing and interesting details. I loved this framed fan it would look great in a bedroom or a bathroom.
Jewels on Display
I adore costume jewelry, and the best place to find interesting pieces is Legacies. With an extensive selection of jewelry, you will not be disappointed. Looking for a cool broach? Legacies also have an impressive assortment of interesting clip on earrings the endless selection will make it hard to leave a piece behind.
Traditional Pieces Within Reach
When you finally have a great dining room set adding, the finishing touches can make a big difference. A set of china can set you back a pretty penny. I have found beautiful China and traditional tea sets, and coffee services at Legacies for reasonable prices. I find that the entire set is sold at one price. Having the right serving ware makes entertaining a breeze.
Last But Not Least
If you love something don’t make the mistake of not purchasing an item, it will be gone when you come back. Trust me I know from experience.
