Are you sad to say good buy to Christmas? Or are you happy to put away the Xmas decorations this year? We are so happy to have a fresh clean slate to start the year off right! With all the Christmas trees and decor away we’ve made room for your new arrivals to come in! Been waiting to consign? No better time than now! Click Sell Your Furniture to submit pictures and a consignment request. Instead of setting new years resolutions we think it’s important to look back and reflect on the year just past, remembering everything we’ve accomplished and the challenges we overcame. And set out to make this year (and every year) better than the last. So here’s at some of our highlights from 2017, we think we have a lot to be proud of and hope you feel the same way too.

We had an exciting start to the year in 2017 when we launched our new and improved mobile friendly website! This was a long time in the making and often with technology things do not go as planned. But we were so pleased to launch a website we were proud of and your response was amazing! In February we decided to spread the love and have our first ever FLASH SALE on our new website! In March we were desperately needing some Spring in our lives so we started accepting patio and outdoor furniture and we sold some incredible pieces! At the end of March, we attended the 22nd Annual Oakville Awards for Business Excellence Gala, where we were nominated for RBC Small Business of the Year 2016. And WE WON! What an absolute honour that was, the most sincere thank you goes our to the judges, Oakville Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary Club of Oakville West and all of you!

After such an exciting accomplishment we jumped right back into things and accepted and sold some incredible furniture and decor pieces last Spring. Close to Easter time Maureen and Jacky appeared together Rogers Daytime TV in Kitchener, where we promoted our newest locations on Victoria Street North!

2017 was our first year in Kitchener, a big one! The Kitchener team lead by manager Kari faced each new challenge as an opportunity to grow. We are so proud of all they have accomplished in just one year! Talk about how time flies, on Earth Day in April celebrated the 8th anniversary of our Hamilton store! And at the end of the month Jacky was back in Kitchener styling a photo-shoot for our upcoming billboards and TV commercials. More on that comes later…

We also started shooting the 360 virtual tours of our stores in the Spring. You can check out the four interactive tours by clicking here! Surprise, we had another flash sale on our website at the beginning of May 2017. We called it a rainy day surprise, 8.5 hours only, you saved 13% and loved it! Our first billboard went up the first week of June and it was located directly across from our Kitchener store on Victoria street north.

And with that Summer was here, we sold some incredibly eclectic pieces, celebrated Canada 150, and had a 2-page feature in Our Homes magazine! It “looks like a million bucks”!

During the summer our TV commercials aired on CityTV during Cityline and so many of you mentioned that you saw it, which is incredible! Our Oakville store celebrated their 5th anniversary in July offering customer 13% off the entire store! And later that summer our Aurora store celebrated their 4th anniversary! The days were getting shorter and Fall was upon us, we hosted some fabulous DIY workshops in the Fall and put together a full page in the Toronto Star Thanksgiving weekend! At the end of October our Hamilton store was named #1 consignment store, #1 antique store, #1 used furniture store in the Readers Choice awards. Congratulations to our Hamilton store and wonderful hardworking staff!

It was that time of year again, Christmas! In retail we deck the halls quite early but that just means we get to enjoy and sell your festive holiday decor for longer! Check out our Christmas reveal video if you are still needing a dose of festive! How quickly a year has gone by on November 18th 2017 we had the 1 year anniversary SALE at our Kitchener store. December must be the busiest month of the year for everyone, right? We wrapped up a few exciting projects and received some incredible pieces on consignment including this awesome Telephone booth.

Ann Marie hosted a Christmas workshop and Maureen appeared on Morning Live in a pre-filmed 4 segment look at our Hamilton store with Tim from CHCH! Merry Christmas, and then just like that it’s New Year’s Eve!
