Finish Your Townhome with the Best in the Neighborhood
Townhomes in The Overlook’s community are already styled with the latest finishes and color palettes in home design, and you can even be a part of the process if you opt for one of our upgrades once you sign on with us!
But everyone knows that a house isn’t really a home until you’ve had the chance to decorate it with personal items, pictures, knick-knacks: the works. That’s why we love all of the locally owned and operated home goods stores that offer more than just a mass-produced rug or side table for your space. Check out a few of our staff’s favorite stops for hunting down the pieces that will be unique to you, and perfect finishing touches for your brand new townhome.
If shopping is an involved, intensive activity for you, then you’ll want to check out Material Culture during one of its fantastic auctions! Open to everyone from individuals to museums, the shop’s auctions are well known in the area for bringing in some of the finest pieces on the market. The staff is knowledgeable and always on hand to assist if you want to examine an item or need some questions answered at your first auction experience.
But don’t let a competitive market steer you away from this eclectic collector of art, furniture, and other décor pieces! You can also peruse the store itself when there isn’t an auction happening. And, the shop displays its latest wares online, so you can always scope things out ahead of time – especially if you’ve got your eye on one of the heavier furniture items.
Family owned and operated, Ali’s Wagon has been in the Fairmount area for more than a decade. Since opening its doors, the store has continued expanding its stock, so you can find anything from home décor to stationary and games for the kids! Items switch out based on seasonal needs and styles, so keep an eye on the website for the latest additions to the shelves. And since the staff prides itself on personalized service, there is always someone there to answer a phone call during regular business hours if you have a question.
HOME Spun Resale Boutique
If you want your purchase to do some real good, we suggest heading over to HOME Spun Resale Boutique. Project HOME uses the store as a way to help out the homeless population of the area, affording them employment and a way to create their own careers in retail operations and customer service. In addition to clothing and fashions for both men and women, you’ll find a wide variety of handmade gifts like candles and soap, which are made by the HOME residents. Plus, resident artists produce quality, one-of-a-kind pieces that you can take home to brighten up the walls in your home.
