, the cultivated consignment store at 9750 Gayton Road, is celebrating its first anniversary. To fete this happy milestone, they’ve planned an open-house party this Saturday, Aug. 11, from noon to 5 p.m. They hope to see you there. There’ll be plenty of refreshments and much merchandise to see as the store excitedly kicks off its second year.
In honor of their birthday, Revival’s also having a sale that starts tomorrow. Some items will be 50 percent off, and the sale won’t last long.
So just what does Revival have in store? The shop specializes in stylish consigned finds, plus new décor options including some items sourced from overseas. Works by local painters — including neat semi-abstract tree paintings by Kim Nix — round out the accessories options.
Right now they’ve got a great Tanner Kenzie floor lamp with a gold bamboo post, a strikingly intricate Arts-and-Crafts-style chandelier, and a long 19th-century Chinese console table. Plus a whole lot more — headboards, coffee tables (a great Danish modern one) and richly toned hand-woven rugs. One item, a dresser bought in Hong Kong in the 1960s, really has my attention. It's pictured, and its price was just reduced to $626.50.
Store owner Whitney O’Conner would love to meet you on Saturday, and she’s always on the lookout for new items. Might you have items to consign? Inventory can fly off the floor. Visit the store's website for those details. Whitney says this, too: “If there’s ever anything that you’ve got your heart set on, if we don’t have it in-store at the moment, we’ll keep our eye out and let you know as soon as it comes in.” Just send Revival an email with a list of your sought-after items.
Revival’s store hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The open house birthday party event will run from 12 p.m.to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 11.
