There are a few really great places in my area. Most recently I found one tucked into what used to be a Tex-Mex restaurant, which makes it all the more quirky for me.
Austin Furniture Depot - they have a great website.
I have visited this place at least once a week for the past two months. It feels like a treasure hunt, and since they are constantly getting new inventory, you just never know what you're going to get. This is probably why I'm addicted to it. Every visit feels like the first visit.
And the prices are insane!
Of course, the problem is that a lot of pieces are one-of-a-kind. If you see something you like, hesitating on a decision could mean that you'll lose it. I lost my opportunity on this reclaimed wood table for that very reason. It was there one day, I saw it, I loved it! I went home to measure my space, came back, and it was gone! ARGH! Note to self - always keep measurements on you, and buddy up to the shop keepers so you don't feel afraid to ask them to hold a piece for you. They can usually be super accomodating, if only you ASK! Which is what I should have done.
Oh well... there's always next week. Maybe I'll see another I like even better... the hunt continues!
