For the past several Fridays I have been taking “Friday Fieldtrips” with agents from my office. Mostly we have been staging their listings. Just a little spruce up. Adding a bit of color. I thought I’d share some of our great finds.
The home we were staging is in Woodinville, so we shopped in Woodinville at TJ MAXX, Target and World Market. The photo below are just the things we bought today. I have a huge growing collection in this particular color family of reds, golds and greens which work well for homes built in the 1980s.
The curtains are only $15 at World Market. They come in that orange twisted coil in a little bag of the same fabric, to create the wrinkle effect. We used the patterned ones behind the dining room table. They are only about 24″ wide and tie on. Best buy were the small wavy square plates at only $2.00 each at TJ Maxx on the clearance table. I try to keep pillows at $10 each, these came in sets of 2 for $20 at Target.
The big green goblets were $5.00 each at World Market. I get plates of all shapes and colors at Target for $3.00 to $4.00 each all the time. They have every color imaginable and I usually buy them in sets of 4 from $12.00 to $16.00.
The tall red oval vase on the right I just had to have and was about $12.00 and we spotted the red and white photo box below it for only $3.00 and it was a perfect color match. Most of my big pictures are out at my two pending listings in Sammamish and Edmonds. Often I can take them from one house to another, but this was Hilde Webber’s listing so we started her collection and I added a bit to my collection and lent the items to her.
We staged most of the first floor, but didn’t pre-set the kitchen area too much as a family of five still lives here. It’s tough on a family getting the house ready and keeping it that way. A little help goes a long way, and if you shop well you won’t spend too much money and you can use the items over and over again from one listing to the next.
This one is all ready for the Open House this Sunday and Hilde and I had a great Friday Fieldtrip. I find it’s also a great way to get to know my agents really well. Gives new meaning to TGIF!
