At a time when the housing market’s distress is boiling over into various retail markets — a fact most easily illustrated by declines in the furniture sector — Bacon’s Furniture is changing the way it does business.
The company’s Sarasota store at 7766 S. Tamiami Trail, which now exclusively carries Drexel furniture, will soon change to a multi-line store, selling major brands of furniture, including a more diverse selection of home office and entertainment products.
“Now, essentially, we have all of our eggs in the Drexel basket,” said Jeff Bacon, the general manager of Bacon’s Furniture. “We will continue to carry Drexel. However, we will also be selling other top sellers.”
The change is in response to the desires of customers, Bacon said. Read more »

First there was furniture, then characters from Darth Vader to sassy French maids took it over.
A building at the corner of Eighth and Walnut streets in Rogers housed a furniture store until it went out of business in the past year, then was temporary quarters for costume seller Halloween Express.
The building is becoming a furniture store again and a Jonesboro company is preparing to move its corporate office to Northwest Arkansas. Read more »

Luxury consumersâ€™ confidence rose at the close of the third quarter, as measured by Unity Marketingâ€™s Luxury Consumption Index which reached 103.3 points, up from 99.2 at the end of second quarter. But luxury consumersâ€™ spending on luxury didnâ€™t match their rise in confidence. This according to the latest result of Unity Marketingâ€™s Luxury Tracking survey of over 1,000 luxury consumers (average income $149.1k) conducted in October 2006.
â€œThe rebound of the luxury index to 103.3 points means that luxury consumers have more confidence about the economy and their financial status. In particular, there is a notable rise in luxury consumersâ€™ perception of the financial health of the country. If the coming elections turn on the economy, this is good news for incumbents,â€ says Pam Danziger, president of Unity Marketing and author of Shopping: Why We Love It and How Retailers Can Create the Ultimate Shopping Experience. â€œHowever, luxury consumers didnâ€™t translate their growing consumer confidence into increased spending on luxury during the last quarter.â€
Luxury consumers spent on average $13,432 buying luxuries in the third quarter, which was 9.6 percent less than they spent in the second quarter. With a few exceptions â€” notably luxury electronics, furniture, clothing, fashion accessories, wine and spirits â€” the amount luxury consumers spent in most categories declined, with the spending levels of the super-affluent consumers (those with incomes of $150,000 and above) dropping the most.

As a nation weâ€™re always suspicious of a generous freebie, as the old phrase goes, â€˜thereâ€™s no such thing as a free lunchâ€™, but in this case Dream Homes WorldWide really is the exception that proves the rule giving away 8,000 pounds worth of furniture if you buy one of a limited selection of two bedroom two bathroom apartments at Turquoise in Bodrum, Turkey.
Dream Homes WorldWide appreciates how frustrating it can be to kit-out any apartment, trailing around lighting, bedding, sofa and kitchenware departments; a chore that magnifies in difficulty when the apartment in question is 2500km away in Turkey. As an early Christmas present, a selected group of 30 apartments will be decked out with everything you need from white goods and air conditioning to bed-linen and cutlery, so when completion comes around in 2008, all you have to do is unlock the front door and enjoy your new home.
To reassure any quizzical minds, the asking price for the apartments concerned has not been inflated from the developerâ€™s price list but remains the same, an excellent value Â£65,900. A Â£2,000 reservation deposit is required, followed by 40% payable after one month and the remaining 60% upon completion expected for November 2008. Some quick maths will show that to get on the property ladder in Turkey, only Â£26,000 needs to be found now and equity release from your UK property could be a good place to look. Read more »

The Price Hill Historical Society is auctioning off antiques and memorabilia from the neighborhood’s past in order to preserve the future.
The historical society is presenting the “Heritage on the Hill” auction, raffle and dinner from 5-9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, in the undercroft at St. William Church.
Historical society coordinator Larry Schmolt said the main purpose of the auction is to raise money so the organization can renovate and preserve its headquarters, at 3640 Warsaw Ave. in the former Provident Bank building, that was built in the late 1920s.
He said they want to renovate the building’s second floor and expand their museum. Two of the rooms will be dedicated entirely to the old baseball players from Price Hill.
Students from Elder High School have been volunteering at the society on the weekends to help scrape away old paint, fix the plaster walls and apply fresh coats of paint, he said.
“It’s really been nice to have them here to help,” Schmolt said.
“We’re getting there slow, but sure. The upstairs hasn’t been used for such a long time a little clean up and paint up does a lot for us.” Read more »

The empty Super Kmart store at Baseline and Greenfield roads in east Mesa is undergoing a transformation and will soon become an American Home furniture store. American Home is based in Albuquerque, N.M., and was founded in 1936.
It has eight stores in New Mexico and Arizona, including three stores in Tucson and one store each in Prescott and Sahuarita.
The Super Kmart store had been under construction when Kmart went into bankruptcy protection in 2001, resulting in a cutback in operations and the closure of almost 400 stores nationwide. Read more »

Nuns at the Benedictine Sanctuary, 800 N. Country Club, are hoping collectors will help get them out of debt.
They’re hosting a silent auction where several pieces of furniture from the Steinfeld mansion are up for sale.
The nuns lived in the mansion for a time, back in the 1930s, before moving to the Monastery on Country Club.
“The furniture was part of the house, so it was our property too,” explains Sister Lupita Barajas, prioress of the monastery.
Barajas says maintenance on the 66-year-old building is quite expensive, as is medical care for the nuns who reside there. Some of the sisters are in their 80s. Read more »
