Film Biz Prop Shop - Gowanus: $25 for $60 Worth of Décor at Film Biz Prop Shop in Brooklyn

Bare walls have plenty of advantages: ample surface area for finger painting, an absence of disapproving Churchill posters, and no mirrors reminding you that your hair is on fire. Fill rooms' middles with furnishings so you can keep walls clear with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $60 worth of unique furniture, art, and oddities at Film Biz Prop Shop on President Street in Brooklyn.

A quirky nonprofit that sells former television and film props at discount rates, Film Biz Prop Shop was recently featured in the New York Times, and gives a portion of profits to the charity Blissful Bedrooms. Film Biz’s varied inventory mixes practical items, such as vases (around $25) and office chairs (around $60), with offbeat décor and bizarre antiques. Decorate your shoe closet with a plastic foot or hang up paintings of surreal American landscapes to alarm small children and persnickety historians. Meanwhile, a basket o bones will enliven any collection of bones, and bones can be enlivened with discount lingerie.

Not only was I pleasantly surprised by the multitude of treasures to be found, but I also thoroughly enjoyed the shopping experience provided by the helpful and positive staff. I'd definitely go back!

I got so much great furniture for such a good price with my Groupon. It felt like we were stealing, but the prices here are just so fair it's mind boggling! I even had my husband take and donate back to film Biz the old office chair we were able to replace with a sleek vintage one from their amazing selection, because I wanted to support them and their business. I will most certainly be back, and I took postcards and have handed out to 3 friends so far to send them there as well. a GREAT experience and a new place for me to go back to again & again!
