One man's trash is another man's treasure, and at Trove Decor in Newtown, the old and shabby are transformed into interior gems.
This weekend, Trove, winner of a Best of Philly award this year from Philadelphia Magazine, will host one of its semiannual carriage house sales. Shoppers, collectors, and decorators will find one-of-a-kind furniture without the one-of-a-kind cost.
Founders Christine Edmonds, Meg Newell, and Rebecca Bancroft's treasure Trove overflows with alabaster lamps, dining-room pieces with nickel nail-head trim and black vinyl, a pair of midcentury couches, and furniture reupholstered in handmade jewel-toned silk-screen bird-print fabrics.
Amid the antiques and works of local artists, there are rarely two pieces that look quite alike. "We encourage people to mix and match things," Edmonds said.
