Bargain furniture shopping recommendations

Readers have several suggestions on good places to find furniture bargains in the Charlotte area.

In response to Sunday’s column on the subject, here are some highlights:

--Two people called to say downtown Pineville is great for antiquing and has more stores than the other spot I mentioned, downtown Waxhaw.

--A reader from Mint Hill called to give a shout-out to Consignment 1st, which has several locations around the region. The inventory shifts almost daily, with new furniture and housewares rotating in. “That is my favorite store. If I was just starting out, I’d go there first,” she said.

I can also attest from personal experience that it’s a convenient place to sell your own furniture on consignment.

-- Chris Caesar of southeast Charlotte wrote to share other consignment store recommendations: “I have a wonderful interior decorator who... guided me to several consignment stores including The Classic Attic and the Pompous Peasant (behind Park Road Shopping Center) when I was looking for good quality, less expensive furniture. He also recommended Antique Kingdom on Central Ave., near Kings Drive. These stores are wonderful for anyone looking for quality at a bargain or anyone who likes to shop.”

There is also an awesome place for brand new furniture in Belmont (right off exit 26) called THe Furniture Place. Great deals and very friendly staff. I bought my dinette set there in July for half the price Rooms 2 go was asking (the very same set!). I passed their sign this morning and their August sale is buy a sofa and loveseat and get the chair FREE! You can't beat that! I'm going to try to convince my husband we need a new living room suite.

FOB Charlotte is a new warehouse store in Pineville that has better quality furniture. They have big pieces and small pieces. It is hot in there (no a/c), but they have some unbelievable deals on really cool stuff.
