Spring cleaning | 3 housewares sales offer reasons to redecorate
The sun is shining. It's 70 degrees. You're wearing...sandals? This can only mean one thing when it comes to your home: time for spring cleaning. In the name of out with the old, in with the new (or in the case of Ravenswood Antique Mart, in with the new old), the next few weeks offer an abundance of reasons to update your space for the new season.
Our favorite Francophile shop in River North hosts the Dish that Ran Away with the Spoon sale, selling everything from plates and napkins to the perfect cocktail glasses for 75% off the retail price. Running now through the end of the month.
Ravenswood Antique Mart
Also through the end of March the Ravenswood antique mecca is selling its vintage modern wares–furniture, home accessories and jewelry from the '30s to the '70s–for 20–50% off.
You don't even have to leave your house for this one if the St. Pat's crowds terrify you. Jayson Home launched a new web site (complete with a custom-order functionality), which means you can design a custom piece of furniture online and take advantage of the 20% off upholstery deal from home. Or, go the old-fashioned route and actually shop in the store; you'll still get the discount.
