I am in the process of opening a law office, and as a lawyer I am finding that there is a certain image I am expected to project, but as a brand-new lawyer my income is not really in keeping up with that image. So I have been heavily shopping thrift stores, yard sales, Craigslist, etc. So far I have scored:
(1) Quoizel Tiffany style floor lamp, like new, $70 ($200+ new)
(2) Ashley Home Furnishings 5.5' x 7' throw rug, perfect condition, $50 ($200+ new)
(3) LARGE mission style solid wood desk, good condition [like new once I'm done refinishing it], $45 ($200+ for particle board furniture at Walmart, so probably 2-3x that for real wood new)
(4) 2 leather captains chairs, $60 ($200+ EACH new)
If I can find a good desk chair and multi-function machine on clearance I'll be *really* psyched. For right now I'm borrowing those from my home office until I can upgrade.
