When you go to a hotel, do you look at the furniture and wish it was in your bedroom? Personally, I love the armoires that you can close and cover up the TV.
Well, hotels remodel a lot. What happens to their "stuff"? Does it go to the hotel junkyard? No, it goes to Hotel Surplus Outlet in Los Angeles (Van Nuys, to be exact.) Per their website, Hotel Surplus Outlet "acquires and liquidates fine furnishing from top rated hotel and lodging properties. They also seek deals on new overstock items, canceled items, canceled orders and new furniture." This means some great deals for you!
OK, I've looked at their prices and they are much higher than the prices you would find at a yard sale. Those of you who have been with me from the beginning know that I think that 10% of the original price is a true bargain.... but, this stuff is pretty nice and the price is way less than new, so it's worth checking out.
I've found the Hotel Surplus Outlet in Los Angeles, but their must be outlet in other areas. Perhaps some of my readers would like to post the addresses of outlets in their areas
