Spring Cleaning: Declutter

Now that you’ve completed your annual spring cleaning, it’s time to simplify and declutter. Sometimes it can be hard to know where to start, or even what you might need to get rid of.

spring cleaning declutter

We’ve compiled a list to help you get started on some items you can automatically throw out, as well as some items you might consider consigning at our shop:

Some items to toss:

  • Old magazines: Chances are you aren’t going to read them again.
  • Receipts, bills and documents: Throw away receipts for items you aren’t planning to return or that you won’t need at tax time.
  • Clothing: Use the two-year rule for clothes – get rid of items you haven’t worn in two years.
  • Books: Go through your bookshelves and get rid of books you haven’t touched in months or those you aren’t going to read or re-read.
  • Medicine and vitamins: Check out your medicine cabinet and clear out items that have expired or that you no longer have use for. (Before tossing in the trash – which isn’t safe – check and see if your local police department or pharmacy is holding a medicine drop event where you can safely dispose of expired or unused medicines, or check out fda.gov for proper disposal methods.)
  • Makeup and perfume: Clean out your beauty stash and toss anything too old or that you don’t use.
  • Jewelry: Get rid of broken costume jewelry or sell anything you don’t wear (to us!)
  • Food: Rummage through the pantry, fridge, and shelves and clear out items that are old, unused or downright questionable.
  • Memorabilia: If you have cards or other memorabilia scattered around without any purpose, check and see if there’s some you’re willing to part with. Save the super sentimental items and part with the rest
  • Old product boxes
  • Hangers from the dry cleaner’s/Plastic hangers from a retail store

Items to consider selling:

  • Extra dishware: Have an entire set of dishware or matching glassware that is sitting on a shelf in a China cabinet collecting dust? We’ll take a look at it.
  • Jewelry: If you don’t wear it there’s no use in keeping it. But we can probably find it a new owner if you bring it into the shop.
  • Rugs and home decor stashed in the garage or attic: If you haven’t used it because you’ve redecorated then it’s time for it to find a new home.
  • Knick knacks and other home decor that doesn’t make you smile when you look at it.
  • Holiday decor you never remember to put out.
  • Unused vases: You probably only need two or three (I mean, how often do you actually have fresh flowers in the house?) Send the rest our way and see if we can get you some extra cash!
  • Fancy serving bowls you haven’t used in the last year. Someone out there is going all-out for a dinner party next week and your dusty serving bowl is exactly what they’re looking for.
  • Artwork: You redecorated or your taste has changed and you’ve likely got some artwork stacked up in a closet. Dust it off and drop it by the shop where we’re always on the lookout for unique and popular artwork to add to our ever changing stock.

Once you’ve decluttered and decided what you no longer use or need. Come pay us a visit at Second Sale Consignments. We buy furniture, jewelry, art, housewares, decor, lighting and more. We also purchase silver, gold, single items or entire estates! So while you’re making your house a more inviting environment by getting rid of unused items, put some extra cash in  your pocket by consigning them to us!

Stay tuned for our next blog where we’ll give you some ideas for organizing and storing items in your home, to help you complete the whole spring cleaning process!

Spring Cleaning: Deep Cleaning Tips

Your windows are open, the temps are warming up and there’s a delightful coating of bright yellow pollen on everything in sight. It must be spring! And that means it’s time to air out the house, freshen things up and do some spring cleaning.

spring cleaning deep cleaning

From decluttering to dusting, now is the time to get things in your house in order so you can spend the warmer spring and summer months outdoors, enjoying the weather knowing that your home is clean and orderly.

A traditional spring cleaning is usually considered a more rigorous cleaning, or as some would say, a deep cleaning. It’s more than just your typical dusting and mopping and includes things like washing curtains and cleaning your blinds (have you looked at those lately? Whew!)  We’ve compiled an abbreviated spring cleaning checklist to get you going:

Living room:

  • Remove all decor from shelves and dust.
  • Dust and clean glass on hanging pictures and frames.
  • Remove couch cushions and vacuum, fluff and replace pillows.
  • If cushions or pillows have removable covers, throw them in the washer and dryer.
  • Remove area rugs and shake out, vacuum all carpets and move furniture to reach underneath.
  • Wipe down baseboards and wash walls.
  • Dust all plants.
  • Dust ceiling fan blades, remove and wash light covers as needed.
  • Dust all light fixtures, replace bulbs as needed, wipe down light switches.
  • Clean windows and blinds and toss curtains and draperies in the washer and dryer.

Kitchen:

  • Empty cabinets and wipe down the interior. Before putting things back, check for anything you no longer use or want.
  • Wipe down outside of cabinets.
  • Dust light fixtures. Remove and wash covers as needed.
  • Pull large appliances away from the wall and sweet and mop the floor, if possible.
  • Remove everything from the fridge. Wipe down entire inside. Repeat on outside.
  • Run self-cleaning option on oven, if available. Don’t forget the outside!
  • Clean microwave inside and out.
  • Wash all baseboards and wall areas.
  • Remove silverware and other items from drawers. Wipe out and return items.
  • Mop/clean floor with appropriate cleaner for surface.

Bathrooms:

  • Deep clean shower with appropriate cleaners for surface.
  • Remove shower head and soak in lime away product. Clean other shower fixtures with appropriate cleaning product until shiny.
  • Remove shower curtain and clean. Replace curtain or liner if needed.
  • Toss out old or empty bath product containers. Wipe down any bath storage fixtures.
  • Remove toilet lid so the entire bowl is accessible. Clean down to the base of the bowl including the handle and back of the bowl.
  • Remove all toiletries from drawers and cabinets. Wipe clean and replace. Toss any empty or unused items.
  • Clean all mirrors and light fixtures. Replace bulbs as needed.
  • Launder bath mats and toilet coverings.
  • Mop floors and wipe baseboards.

While in the process of getting your home spic and span you might have noticed an abundance of stuff. Part of the whole spring cleaning process is also decluttering and organizing. So now’s the time to make use of your now-spotless floors and go through closets, check under beds, and perhaps even visit the garage or the attic in search of items you no longer need or want.

Check out our next blog for a quick list of items you should toss out, and some items you might want to send our way for consignment.

Entryway and Mudroom Upcycle Ideas

 

Around here, one day the weather is a wintry mix of freezing rain with a potential for snow, and two days later the sun is shining and it’s a mild 60-degrees.

On Monday you’re wearing a down parka and snow boots and by Wednesday you’ve got on some flats and a windbreaker. The frequent changes in weather make having various weather-appropriate outerwear and shoes available and at the ready one less thing to worry about during your morning hustle and bustle.

Sprucing up your entryway by adding some additional storage or creating a mini-mudroom in your garage are two ways to quickly update and refresh an area of your home and allows form to meet function.

A gently-used 8-drawer dresser can be upcycled into a fun and functional entryway bench with the removal of some drawers, a few pieces of wainscoting, some fresh paint, and a cushion. With the right piece of furniture and a little handy work this project could be tackled in a weekend. And come Monday you’ve got a great place to store some shoes, backpacks, or purses.

An old armoire is easily transformed into an open entryway closet or a portable mudroom for a garage or covered patio. Simply remove the doors, update the paint,  and add a cushion for the bench seating and you’re set!

mudroom pic2

If your family and decor taste call for a more rustic look, a collection of vintage crates can be put together for a fun and functional boot rack. You can arrange the crates and stack them to meet your footwear needs.A vintage soda crate on the top serves as great storage for small items such as scarves, hats, gloves or even umbrellas. For a more mobile piece, add some wheels to the bottom and you’ve got a great storage unit for a garage, laundry room, or mudroom.

mudroom pic3

A vintage door makes for a unique and unobtrusive addition to an entryway that can double as a coatrack with the use of doorknobs or other hardware.. With the addition of a small side or end table you’ve got somewhere to stash small items and a spot underneath to store a pair of shoes or two.

mudroom pic4

A vintage television armoire can be easily updated into an entryway piece or serve as a mini-mudroom. A fun and fresh coat of paint and the removal of the cabinet drawers can take an outdated piece of furniture and make it into something your family uses every day. This particular piece has a rustic wood board background with coat hooks and some brown baskets to capture small accessories and items.

Another dresser is upcycled into a more functional piece with a fun coat of paint, some fresh drawer hardware, and the removal of a few drawers so the family can store a variety of shoes in one place, near the entrance and exit of the home.

mudroom pic6

Having a central place for your family to store shoes, accessories and other outerwear can really streamline the process of coming and going. It also helps keep dirt off your carpet and flooring when people remove muddy or dirty shoes in a mudroom, garage, or entryway. It’s a win-win for everyone.

If you’re interested in revamping your entryway or creating a mini mudroom for yourself, come check out Second Sale Consignments. We have a variety of vintage and gently-used furniture that is waiting for your creative eye to bring it home and give it new life.

Contemporary Furniture at Great Prices

contemporary furniture graphic

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines contemporary as, ‘happening or beginning now or in recent times.’ This vague definition misses the mark as it applies to the Contemporary furniture aesthetic. Contemporary furniture, often referred to as modern contemporary furniture, or even modern furniture, is furniture designed after the 19th century and heavily influenced by the modernist art movement. As a result, a furniture style evolved out of simplistic and visual design elements using the furniture itself and the area in which it resides as a part of an overall design theme for a room, office, or home.

Contemporary furniture can be considered any type of furniture that uses modern materials with a simplistic design. The function is considered first and foremost. Creating a visually compelling item is secondary. Contemporary furniture strives to be affordable and attainable.

Post-World War II ideals that called for practicality and minimalism directly influenced the aesthetic of the Contemporary furniture style. Where previous furniture design was more decorative and ornate with styles such as Victorian and Neoclassical, the new furniture style was pared down and simplistic. Modernist furniture design removed decorative elements and placed the focus on the design and functionality of the object as a way to save time, money, material, and labor. Materials such as steel, glass, plastics, and molded plywood led the way in Contemporary furniture design in stark contrast to the dark, carved woods and richly patterned fabrics of previously crafted furniture. Visually heavy furniture became visually light.

Notable furniture design pieces that define and illustrate the Contemporary furniture style are:

The Wassily Chair, created in 1926 in a cabinet making shop in Germany by Marcel Breuer. It embodies minimalist design and uses tubular steel and leather straps to create a design of thin geometric shapes and function.

The Wassily Chair

The Eileen Gray Side Table, created in 1927 by French architect Jean Badovici as a simple bedside table while embracing Badovici’s famous refusal to conform to popular ideals. The table showcases unique utility, allowing an adjustment for serving breakfast in bed and is composed of metal and glass in a conical design that is visually pleasing and functional.

Eileen Gray Side Table

The Barcelona Chair, created in 1929 by Miles Van Der Rohe and Lily Reich as an entry in an international design fair in Barcelona, Spain. The chair features simplistic leather patterns and curved tubular steel that creates an aesthetically pleasing chair.

Contemporary furniture designers and manufacturers today continue to evolve design with the use of new materials while employing the trademark simplicity of the furniture style. Lightness of form remains preferential to heavy ornamentation with an end goal of continuing to create a new visual experience for consumers. Today, Contemporary furniture remains an icon of elegance and sophistication.

If this particular style of furniture speaks to you, consider stopping by our shop, Second Sale Consignment, in Great Bridge. We have a continuously revolving stock of furniture in all styles and design aesthetics and we’ve almost always got a great piece of Contemporary Furniture in stock. Our inventory changes daily, so if you see something you like, make sure to snap it up quickly. Contemporary furniture pieces are typically in high-demand.

Give Your Lighting New Life

Are you sick of all the people spouting off the latest mantra, “New year, new you?” How about “New year, new stuff for my house to make it more fun and exciting?”

Yeah?! Ok, we’re here to help. Specifically, as it pertains to updating the lighting in your home.

give your lighting new life graphic

Lighting can play an important role in any interior space. However, people often overlook it when decorating and put the focus on larger items such as furniture, wall color,flooring etc, with lighting often coming in as an afterthought. But having good lighting is a crucial aspect of the overall design of a room or of a home.

Dark hallways, dim lights, and small windows can lend a dreary tone to any room and can impact a person’s mood. And while using natural lighting is important, not everyone has the option. Placing mirrors (we have some!) on walls opposite to windows can help reflect daylight in a room to create brightness. But otherwise, your go-to solution is selecting some great added lighting for your home.

And you’re in luck because our stock is currently chock-full-o-lamps and other lighting options!

For a more streamlined look, match your lighting with your furniture’s style. Classic and traditional decor calls for vintage chandeliers or simple lamp designs. Recessed lighting works great for apartments and other small spaces providing minimalist decor and and a vintage and cozy vibe. Modern furniture styles pair well with ornate, decorative lamps and light fixtures and wall sconces.

If your home is already well-lit, here are a few pinspirations for upcycling some of the great lighting options you have at home. Or come into the store to find an affordable, but high quality lamp that just needs a little lighting facelift. Make us an offer on any lamp or lighting in our store and you’re sure to get a great deal on a piece that you can then make all your own!

These worn brass lamp bases make the perfect base to update your solar light game and give your backyard oasis a more sophisticated look.

If this brass base doesn’t match your decor, and you’re looking for something a little more fun and funky, a coat of paint and a new lampshade give this table lamp a new lease on life!

If you have some more ornate vintage-style lamp bases or you find some in our stock, they make a unique display for necklaces that will add some elegance and quirk to your bedroom or dressing area.

If shabby-chic is your style, consider revamping an outdated lampshade into a fun and funky chandelier for a bedroom or home office space.

And don’t limit your lamps to indoors! Here’s a great idea for upcycling a floor lamp into a kitschy outdoor flower planter:

Room Refresh

Now that we’re settled into 2016 (well, we aren’t just yet, are you?) it’s time to get down to business. If your New Year’s resolution didn’t include de-cluttering your home, maybe you’re looking to update a room, or two, in your abode.

Refreshing a room can be done on a tight budget and doesn’t require a ton of work, if you know where you start.

A fresh coat of paint works wonders in changing the feel and style of a room. Even a small change such as one or two shades darker or lighter than the room’s current wall color can make an impact.

just painting a room can make a huge difference

When updating a bedroom, switching out a wooden bed-frame for a metal headboard and footboard can turn a room from rustic and cozy to sleek and modern. Or just painting a wooden or metal headboard a fresh, new color can dramatically change the look of existing furniture. Swapping out window coverings and bedding for a new color scheme will bring the new look together along with a new piece of art or a select few decor items.

At Second Sale Consignments we always have a variety of headboards and footboards in stock to meet your decorating needs. We’ve also got all styles of artwork and home decor and our items turnover quickly so there’s something new to see every day.

We always have TONS of beds in stock, ready to be repurposed.

If you’re up for a larger task such as revamping a living room, there are several routes to take. Again, a change in wall-color will give an immediate change to the room’s feel. If your budget allows, switching out larger furniture pieces such as the sofa, arm chair, or the coffee table will also give you the most bang for your buck regarding visual impact. Toss in a few new throw pillows and a rug, and you’ve got a whole new room.

just changing out one piece in your living room can change the whole feel

From mid-century modern to Victorian, we have a large assortment of living room furniture to choose from at great prices that will make refreshing your entire living room an affordable venture.

And don’t forget lighting! Adding accent lighting to a room with floor and table lamps can enhance the ambiance in a room and provide a different atmosphere depending on what you’re going for. New lamps and lighting can be expensive when bought brand new, but we have TONS of lighting options, including chandeliers, table and floor lamps at great prices.

Whatever your home decor needs are, we’re sure to have something in stock at Second Sale Consignments. From furniture to home decor, we have a little bit of everything.

Shop Small This Saturday

Fb_Timeline_love (3)

The official start of the holiday shopping season is a few days away, but with all the negativity surrounding Black Friday, why not skip it this year? Rather than clawing someone’s eyes out over the Playstation 4 to save $50, consider supporting a small, local business in your community the Saturday after Thanksgiving (this Saturday, November 28.)

Small businesses donate 250% more than larger businesses to nonprofits and community causes. And think about where your money goes: if you spend $100 at a local business, roughly $68 stays in your local economy. If you spend the same at national chain or big box store, only $43 stays in your community.

why buy local

The first ever Small Business Saturday took place on November 27, 2010, a campaign by American Express, to encourage people across the country to support small, local businesses, in response to small business owners’ most pressing need: more customers.  In 2011, the U.S. Senate officially recognized the day. In  2012, 73.9 million people took part in Small Business Saturday and shopped at local businesses. In 2014 an estimated $14.3 billion was spent at local businesses on Small Business Saturday, drawing more than 100 million customers who decided to “shop small.”

Shopping small supports local businesses that create jobs, boost the economy, and preserve neighborhoods in the local community. Small Business Saturday also serves as a sort of kickoff to the holiday shopping season for many small businesses in the United States.

So come check out Second Sale Consignments and all of our friendly neighbors in the Intercoastal Plaza this Saturday. We are a part of the official American Express campaign and you can find us along with other participating businesses on their website! If you’re out shopping on Saturday – take some pictures, and when you share them on social media, make sure to tag them #SmallBizSat to connect with other people who support local businesses. 

Bypass the chaos of Black Friday and save your shopping for Small Business Saturday. You’ll have a calm, enjoyable shopping experience, all while supporting your local economy. We hope to see you on Saturday!
