A home dressing room makes it fun to get ready in the morning. If you have the space, you might want to consider creating a vanity room where you can try on clothes, test out some accessories, and find the perfect pair of shoes for your day. Use the following tips to create a fashionable and functional home dressing room:
Find or Make a Vanity
Whether you find an actual vanity or choose to go the creative route and pair a stylish desk with a mirror, this is the foundational piece for your dressing room. Buy furniture that gives you a comfortable place to sit in front of the mirror and get ready for your day.
Buy an Armoire for Clothes
Transform the entire room into a closet with an armoire that easily houses your wardrobe. This helps you clearly see your outfit options so you can easily create a look that mirrors the way you are feeling. Buying furniture like an armoire is also another way to incorporate an aesthetically-appealing décor into the room.
Use a Bookcase for Shoes
If you love shoes, a bookcase could be the ideal storage option for you. Since the shelves are open, you can actually see every pair and easily grab them when you are ready to get dressed. With a bookcase, your shoes can become a part of the interior design.
Get Creative with Accessories
An empty picture frame or bulletin board gives you a simple and decorative way to store accessories like jewelry. While you are shopping for furniture, keep your eyes open for decorative accents that can house your accessories.
At the Home Consignment Center, we have everything you need to create a fabulous home dressing room. With five Bay Area-locations full of great consignment furniture, we offer you a selection that helps you find what you want. We also buy and sell jewelry.

Whether you want to create a backyard patio for you and your family to enjoy or you want to play host to many Bay Area social gatherings, it is important to take a moment to come up with a patio plan. Your desired purpose for your patio will help determine its size and location, which in turn will help you decide what type of furniture you want on your patio. For a classic garden style, consider choosing patio furniture made of cedar, teak, or all-weather wicker. This style of furniture looks great and will hold up to the elements quite well. If you prefer a more contemporary look, find metal furniture with colorful accents to make your outdoor living space pop! When it’s time to go shopping, stop by your local consignment store to find the best deals on high-quality patio furniture. Check out this infographic from your Bay Area consignment store to learn more about planning your perfect patio. Please share with your friends and family!

Whether you wear jewelry every day or only on special occasions, taking good care of it will ensure that it will last for a long time to come. Different precious metals react to your skin and the environment in different ways, but they should all be cleaned each time you wear them. If your jewelry has gemstones in it, be sure to use cleansers that are specifically designed for the type of stone you have. Otherwise, you could damage your favorite piece of jewelry. When you are not wearing your jewelry, it’s best to store it in a soft flannel or microfiber bag. Try to keep pieces separate from each other to ensure the longest life possible. Keep those bags in a closed jewelry box to minimize their exposure to dust and changing moisture levels in the air.
You’ll be amazed at the selection of jewelry we have at the Home Consignment Center. Our Bay Area stores are open seven days a week, so come in any time you want to add to your jewelry collection. Call us at (925) 838-0113 to learn more.

No one is perfect, and sometimes we all forget important occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, and even holidays! If you suddenly find yourself in need of a last minute gift for that special someone, think about buying jewelry as a thoughtful and considerate present. It’s easy to find unique jewelry at your local consignment store, and your gift recipient will appreciate that you took the time give something so personal and meaningful. Here’s what you need to know about buying a last minute gift of jewelry.
Consider Personal Style
It’s easy to take the mystery out of jewelry shopping when you take a moment to consider the person you’re buying jewelry for. Does this person tend to wear gold, silver, or platinum pieces? Do they tend to be fancy, or are they more understated and subtle designs? If you can’t remember off the top of your head, look through recent photographs to see what they are wearing for different occasions. Chances are, you’ll be able to get a good idea of what their style is so a salesperson at the consignment store can guide you in the right direction.
A last minute gift is still a gift, and the person you’re shopping for doesn’t have to know that you waited to make a purchase. She also doesn’t have to know how much you spent on the gift! Shopping at a consignment store is a great way to find beautiful, unique pieces of jewelry at prices that won’t break the bank. With new inventory every day, you may even be able to find brand-name designer jewelry at a fraction of what it would cost at a retail store.
Trust Your Instincts
Perhaps the most important tip of all for buying jewelry at the last minute is to trust your instincts. If you are immediately drawn to a certain piece, it’s possible that there’s something about it that reminds you of the gift recipient. Go with your gut and make the decision to buy the jewelry that you think is best.
