Road trip?

Someone please tell me they have been to what looks like an amazing spot.

The Trading Post located in Poughkeepsie, NY looks like a decorators dream.

Check out some of their stock:




I'm so ready to start gassing up the car to pick these beauties:





More images of their stock can be found here.

Hmm wonder if I can convince Jon to go with me on a little road trip?

Wow, those are some great buys. So far I haven't been able to find goodies at those prices.

No way that chair is $30!! I think I need to make a roadtrip...and it would take me a hell of a long time to get there!

Sweet Nothings said...

Camila - Go for the trip! That adorable bamboo chair could use an EFFORTLESS STYLE makeover! I could just see it painted with a fabulous new seat cushion!

I'm in the Albany area, so I'd be heading down the Hudson River to Poughkeepsie to get to this great place. Maybe some day..

Oh, I wish we had something like this in KY, but we do not:( I say go get in the car and just suprise Jon. I am sure he would be thrilled with the bargins and some weekend projects to work on too:)

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. The nearest Anthro is either in Toronto or New Jersey. So I guess I'll need to go on a road trip trip too. (Although there really should be one in Montreal!)

I followed the link and I'm amazed at how much stuff there is and what great prices they have!
You should definitely go! I agree with Loretta. I'd love the see the chair painted and reupholstered. It'd look amazing.

Hi Camila, I just wanted to thank you for this tip b/c this past weekend, I stopped by this store and picked up the chair!! See here: http://greenstreetblog.blogspot.com/2010/10/faux-bamboo-chippendale-chair.html

I am surprised another one of your followers didn't beat me to it!! Like you predicted, this place was a decorator's dream.....great stuff!!!

Hi - it’s Bob + Sue Smith from the Trading Post in Poughkeepsie! We just had two customers in our store about an hour ago and BOTH of them said that they heard about us through your blog! We had never heard of it so we checked it out and we were so pleased to read all those wonderful comments - THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I was wondering why we suddenly had so much interest in that bamboo chair! The gal who grabbed it had a grin on her face from ear to ear as she walked out with it. I guess we should have priced it higher – LOL!
