Vintage Boutiques and Staging Your Home

Some of the best places to shop for décor items and furniture to stage your home for sale in Springfield, MO, are vintage boutiques and antique shops. If you hope to buy a home, vintage boutiques also give you creative ideas for how to furnish your new home. According to a recent piece by 417 Magazine, the Little Bluebird Vintage Boutique in the Ozarks specializes in vintage furniture. If you want refinished antiques, trendy and chic home décor, it’s worth a visit in between house hunting or home showings. The Little Bluebird Vintage Boutique, 2004 W. Evangel Street, Ozark, carries handcrafted items, artwork, vintage furniture and other items from 60 local artists and crafters.

Creating the eclectic home

One of the most popular design styles is the transition style that includes some traditional features and contemporary styles. By shopping for eclectic décor items, it adds to the “vintage-meets-modern” motif. Vintage pieces add to a staging effort since potential buyers often love the creativity and thought as well as the fact that you recycled a piece.

Picking out conversation pieces

When staging your home, it’s always fun to have a few decor items that start a conversation. When buying antique pieces, ask the seller about the history or story behind any interesting items you can use to stage your home. Other places to find interesting décor pieces to stage a home or furnish your new place include Relics Antique Mall, 2015 W. Battlefield Rd.; Finders Keepers, 2321 S. Campbell Ave. and Mikes Unique, 3335 W. Sunshine Street. The Spyglass Antique Emporium, 1950 S. Glenstone Ave. in Springfield features mid-century modern furniture and retro accessories.
