I think a lot of stuff is last years' stuff they couldn't sell or whatever.

It is any style. The place is very large.

In our house we have mostly Craftsman/Mission style furniture so I was worried we couldn't find it there, but we found a couple of beautiful pieces.

Lining the outside of the building is all of the drastically reduced stuff so don't forget to look out there for fantastic bargains. Inside are great prices too, but not last chance reductions.

The sofa/end table piece we got was made by Berkline. It was retail $400 and they sold it for $100. It is a beautfiful mission style wood piece. Outside in the drastically reduced we got a wall mirror (58" wide with frame) that is wood mission style framed and they went together beautifully. The mirror was $29. Mirrors 1/2 the size in other places I have looked are over $150, I hadn't even priced mirrors that big because I knew I couldn't afford to get them.

So, they had a few pieces in my style, but much of their stuff is classical, modern, and on and on it goes. Many kids' pieces, esp. bedroom stuff.

I am actually thinking of going today to get a bookshelf. It is a gorgeous wood bookshelf in the shape of a canoe. They want $88. Online I found the same piece for over $400.

Anyway, it is worth going to take a look!

Just remember they are ONLY open Thur, Fri and Saturday. I made the mistake of going on a day they weren't open the first time I drove down there.

Does sound like a great place. My son did riding camp down there last summer and I drove by it several times but never stopped.

I didn't realize all Bombay Co stores were going out of business. Sad to hear that, even though it is not really my cup of tea. They do have a store at Carolina Place but I noticed that Eddie Bauer and Gap Kids are also closing their stores there and I asked about it at Eddie Bauer -- the girl said something about the lease not being renewed. I assumed that was the case with Bombay, too.

Off topic but I hate to see the Gap Kids close. I wish they had one in Blakeney or Stonecrest.
