Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too have exciting new ideas for making your home and workplace warm and inviting as we prepare for our infamous Stars Haggle Sale which started Friday, January 13 and has been extended through Sunday, January 22 due to the blanket of snow we received. We’ve had our share of cold winter storms, snow and ice! Now we get to take a break from the chilly outdoors and get inside all three Stars shops where it’s always warm and inviting!

Wood Storage

It’s easy to see why simple wooden crates for cola and printer’s drawers (both made for easier storage) have been on the forefront of collectibles for many years. Solid wood, great design and function within form have made these compartmentalized cubbies great display pieces. Stars, Stars and Splendid, and Stars Too have a wealth of selection when it comes to this industrial look with multiple uses!

IMG_0139

IMG_0120

IMG_0115

In fact, anything with small drawers has been a sought after item at all three of our shops. Turn of the century spice cupboards in fir, birch and mahogany now show up in artists’ studios holding supplies.

IMG_0138

IMG_0136

IMG_0137

Even larger pieces which feature a combination of drawers have transcended typical interest. From desks and hutches with side panels…

IMG_0133

IMG_0118

… to larger cabinets and secretariats. The function of these pieces is now open to interpretation based on the owners needs!

IMG_0111

IMG_0106

IMG_0142

IMG_0147

Asian influences in bamboo and rattan…

IMG_0113

and desktop organizers with numbered bins.

IMG_0148

Even weathered and distressed beadboard boxes with glass jars for storage get attention for their great design and charming aesthetics.

IMG_0121

Our dealers are bringing in new items everyday so it pays to shop with us on a regular basis to get the best selection. We’re open daily from 11AM to 6PM. Shop Smart. Shop Stars!
