Annex Marketplace opens second location
NEWPORT, Del. - March 9, 2012 (WPVI) -- A Thomasville dresser for $495. An 85-piece set of Noritake china for $185. And a La-Z-Boy sofa and loveseat for $395 each.
Those are just a few of the deals available at the Annex Marketplace's new location in Newport, Delaware.
Several years ago, Saving with 6abc took viewers inside the original Annex Marketplace in Wilmington. Click here to see that story.
It's basically a warehouse that Owner John Aleman and his wife Tracey opened to the public every other weekend to sell items they purchased from estates during the week.
This second location -- in Newport -- looks a lot more like a traditional store.Aleman explains, "it's a more user-friendly environment. It's more like a store than a warehouse. There's carpeting, we have heat, we have air-conditioning. It's a little bit more homey and comfortable."
And though the ambiance at this new location is a bit fancier, the prices on gently used furniture and housewares are just as reasonable as at the original location.
Aleman says older furniture is often better made that contemporary pieces and by buying resale, you can get finer quality for your money.
"You can get really nice things -- solid wood, at a comfortable price. Like you can walk right over there to a dining room table and six chairs for $395."
The inventory changes after each sale. And even if your home is fully furnished, you can always find small items and antiques to add to your décor at affordable prices.
