TFD Consignment

Dawn’s Business Mission

In the furniture industry for over 30 years, my formal studies are in accounting, which is the reason I am a bean counter – a classic description of frugalness. My biggest talent is creative artistry.

Frugality is a lifestyle, creativity is executed ideas. When they collide, it becomes artisan design, at least, my definition of it. Yes, I put my designs on the floor. Plus, I invite other artisans to consign their products as well.

My furniture consignors sell their well-maintained furniture and antiques, my customers enjoy the upscale resale of furniture and things. Only the best is consigned and this micro business is a gem.

Meet other micro businesses at my events called “POP UP’s”.   A Pop Up Paint Night, a Pop Up Fashion Show (with consignment clothing of course), a Pop Up Food Truck, a Pop Up Jewelry Market.  With other micro businesses, we demonstrate who we are, and how we engage in your freedoms…. Yes – You have the freedom of choice, the freedom to shop local, to decide the scale of business you engage in, to enjoy the freedom of personal attention, and meet the micro business owners!  During Pop Up events at The Frugal Design Consignment Shop, we have fun.  Details on facebook.

Consider your furniture shopping choices. Finding new pieces of furniture within the “mass market variety” at big box stores means a smaller budget will deliver compromised quality. Delving into the resale market you have a timing issue. The best furniture at the “not for profit”, or the best “online” by chance, are rare, requiring instant decisions; along with garage and estate sale adventures. There’s customer demand yet fewer and fewer stores to shop where focus is on upscale resale furniture like we proudly offer at The Frugal Design Consignment Shop.

Antiques and Vintage

Vintage design and antiques are a trend that’s never going to get old. Regardless of the generation, we all want to feel some connection to the past. At The Frugal Design, you’ll find antiques from all eras including furniture and décor. We will see fewer and fewer pieces of ornate, hand carved, hard wood furniture as time goes by. Walnut is a hard wood, costly and of highest quality. Cut, open work, inlaid wood designs, all this intricate beauty can be found still as functional furniture. Old rule; Antique is 100 years or more and Vintage is less than 100 years. “What vintage is this?” doesn’t have to be a question regarding fine wine in a bottle! We know furniture based on eras.

Home Décor

Don’t settle on the design of your home until you’ve visited our shop! When redecorating, it can be tempting to stop by the closest chain store for a look at their reproduced and prefabricated home goods. Instead, shop at The Frugal Design for a great selection of home décor items that are unique, vintage and sure to set your home apart from the others.

Our inventory changes on a regular basis. Stop by frequently to browse new items!
