Unlike new furniture, vintage sofas are already broken in, have had time to establish their pedigree, and are almost always housetrained. Save on domestic obedience training with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of consignment furniture and accessories at Gulf to Bay Resale Mart in Clearwater.
Gulf to Bay Resale Mart's 7,000-square-foot showroom brims with an ever-changing harvest of consignment merchandise cultivated from more than 1,000 homes. Living rooms lobby for one of the store's brand-name rocking chairs ($29.99+) or sofas ($79.99+). Paintings ($7.99+) from the minds and brushes of local and nationally recognized artists exude pathos, and constellations of lamps ($3.99+) beckon customers with their vintage, modern, and art deco styles. Gulf to Bay Resale Mart's wearables include sole-bolstering pairs of shoes ($1.99+) and an array of purses filled with forged Monopoly money ($1.99+). Much like the speed of light, the store's inventory changes constantly, ensuring novelty with each visit.
