Thrift Store Decorating for Your Apartment in Gainesville

Decorating your apartment doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg if you know where to look. Thrift stores may have all the discount furnishings you need to create a comfortable décor for your apartment on any budget, if you’re willing to spend time looking. Best of all, many thrift shops are run by charitable organizations, so you can feel good knowing the money you spend is helping those in need.

There are a few tricks you can keep in mind to make yourself an expert thrift store shopper, including:

  • Check the stores frequently – Thrift stores are constantly receiving donations and new merchandise, so even if nothing catches your eye one day, there could be something new the next.
  • Don’t be afraid to dig – Thrift stores aren’t always well organized, so don’t be afraid to check throughout the store, and look behind other objects.
  • Bring backup – When you’re thrift store shopping, it’s a good idea to bring help if you’re planning to purchase large objects like couches or beds.
  • If you like it, buy it – Unlike stores that carry new merchandise, thrift stores only have one of each item available, so waiting too long might mean you’ll miss out.

“The scenery and space is amazing. The apartment leasing staff and maintenance staff are wonderful. I love that its a gated community and all though it's family and student oriented it's still extremely quiet.”
“This is a quiet gated community with nice apartments located in a great area.”
“We just moved in about a month ago. We had maintenance in so many times trying to get things set up for my disabled son - but they never complained. The grounds are beautiful. The people in the office are always polite and helpful. Very happy here.”
