Press Release – Atlanta

 

 

Atlanta 1High End Consignment Sale, April 25th – May 4th

Bridging the wide gap between auction houses and tag sales

 Leftover Luxuries Sales Event is coming back to Atlanta  From Friday, April 25th through Sunday, May 4th, the nation’s premiere high end, pop-up consignment shop is back in Atlanta. Since starting the company in 2009, the nationwide success of Leftover Luxuries is a testament to the staying power and universal appeal of a brilliant concept. As seen in the New York Times – if you have yet to participate as a consignor or a shopper – this is not an event to miss here in Atlanta.  Daily Candy announced it as the place to shop last year!

LOOKING FOR CONSIGNORS and SHOPPERS

For those looking to shed an expensive piece of furniture that no longer has a place or past-season designer clothing, handbags or shoes that are never or barely worn, there is now a custom-made destination– but only for a limited time! Come experience this high-end consignment sale event, specializing in home furniture & decorative accessories, with a secondary focus on Designer clothing, handbags and shoes.

All local residents, including merchants, artisans, antique dealers, and interior designers are invited to consign their items for the sale. Leftover Luxuries provides the rented venue space, advertising, staffing, merchandising, and all promotional material to help bring in potential buyers. One reason the event is so attractive is that consignees price their own items and walk away with 60 percent of the sale price. By requiring that ALL consigned items are pre-approved by a Leftover Luxuries agent, the level of quality is kept very high, and consignors can feel confident that their items are seen in an upscale atmosphere. The fast pace of the event (here and gone in 11 days!) helps generate real retail momentum and means that goods don’t linger in the marketplace.

Consignors get a “sneak peak” and “first dibs” at the Thursday night reception before the sale goes public. It is an experience that combines a high-end boutique, with the hard to come by rare Paris flea market finds!

This formula has been irresistible in high-end communities across the country. From Atlanta to Westport CT, Richmond VA to NYC and back to Charlottesville where it all began - Leftover Luxuries has generated thousands of satisfied consignors and consumers — it’s the ultimate win/win situation!  Atlanta proved to be the perfect market for this proven formula of quick sales, carefully curated goods, high energy and enthusiasm. That is why we are coming back!W Paces Ferry Plaza

Changing the way we buy, sell and get the things we really want; we prove that someone’s leftovers are another person’s luxuries!

INTERIOR DESIGN:  I love and enjoy being an interior designer.  I feel very blessed and grateful that I have found a business I love being in and doing.  I have had the opportunity to work on some amazing projects over the last 20 plus years.  I am also very lucky that all the design clients I have had – I have developed  fabulous friendships with.

IMG_1324 When helping someone do their home – you are given the privilege to be let into their lives.  You get to know them and their family……….on so many levels. The creativity and collaboration that happens with a client to achieve their ultimate “look”, their “home” – is such a fun process to be a part of.  The  hunting and gathering of all the elements that really pull a space together  - is a fun challenge – finding all the right pieces to finish the puzzle for them.   My job, as an interior designer, is to give my clients what they want – the best way I know how.

I really love getting in early on any brand new build or major renovation.  I have lost count how many projects I have worked on from commercial to residential.  Coming in with the experience I have had – I can contribute so much to a project.  So many purchase a home and it is their “lifer” and  because the client doesn’t want to make any mistakes………assistance is often needed.  If one doesn’t do this for a living – it often becomes overwhelming.   AND, think about it – most people have full-time jobs…..bankers, doctors, teachers – this is what you do for a living.  Interiors are what I do for a living.  I am happy to help with the simplest task as paint colors and experienced enough to help you design your home from start to finish…..from the exterior to the entire interior.  Planning your space from the drawings up and happy to help completely furnish it too.IMG_1963

IMG_4793I also like coming up with custom designs to help give a project an extra something special.  Check out this dining table I designed – Love how this turned out – more importantly – so did my clients!!  I was hunting around for something different and came across a slew of old radiators at Caravatis in Richmond.  Love what this added to the over all design of this space.  This project was a complete renovation that I was on from start to finish.

I don’t care if it is the entire project or just one room at a time – I think one of the most important elements when designing  is how it truly is going to be used. Circulation in the entire home – but, also in each individual room is important to understand.   Circulation and how a room lays out can be affected by the simplest thing as a door….the size, does it swing in or out – should it be split into two, a pocket door or should it even be a sliding type door.    The other key factor that I think is important is the lighting of a space.  Natural light from windows, overheads, chandeliers, sconces, lamps and YES – All lighting  should be put on dimmers!

IMG_6951Here are a couple before  shots from the kitchen on this latest project I worked on.  This kitchen was completely functional IMG_6946- but, definitely not the look we wanted to achieve. Sleeker, more counter space and more importantly they needed more storage.  We didn’t move the location – but, this kitchen definitely got a new look!  I truly loved working with these clients. There was also a fabulous team working on the project  - an abundance of collaboration.  I worked side by side with Jeff Easter the builder and Lori Randall from Cabinet Solutions to pull this off!  The after shots are below.

I love doing interiors – there will be more design blogs and pictures to come!  For a little bit more about my design history – click HERE.

If you are interested or know of anyone needing help with their business or home – I would definitely be interested in meeting with them!   Have a fabulous week.
