What You'll Get
An abundance of home furnishings can protect you when Dracula claws through the drywall because your blood smells like monster candy. Obstacle up with today's deal: for $40, you get $80 worth of antiques and home décor at Verdigris Antiques & Interiors, located in Alexandria. This Groupon is only valid for in-store purchases.
Verdigris Antiques & Interiors sells high-quality antiques and vintage decorations from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. Packed inside a converted row house in Old Town, Verdigris lets antiquers and vintage votaries hunt through aisles of treasures like great apes hunting for tree trunks where they can hang their hats. Look for a bargain among the wide array of items under $80, such as a set of six vintage Florentine barware glasses for $68 or a black glass dresser box from the 1930s for $55. If the thought of so much merchandise to sort through sounds overwhelming, peruse the online inventory, which showcases more expensive collector's items such as a 1960s mod Italian plastic dome table lamp ($275), a pair of late-19th-century Victorian slipper chairs ($450), and a midcentury tete-a-tete garden bench ($985).
In addition to internationally sourced items, this Groupon can be used toward Verdigris's decorative consulting and interior-design services ($75 per hour). Get tips on how to best complement the collection of shrunken heads lining your mantelpiece, or explore décor options for the basement you're storing in your attic.
If purchasing two Groupons, both must be used in the same visit.
Though Verdigris Antiques & Interiors hasn't been reviewed much, the antique shop recently appeared in the Washingtonian:
- Owner Ursula Baukol has traveled the world with her husband thanks to his job at the Treasury Department, and customers can see the fruits of those sojourns in constantly changing displays. She also features a great variety of art and vintage lighting, even some vintage clothes. – Jennifer Sergent, Washingtonian
