Location: Chicago, IL
A few weeks ago, we discovered Direct Auction Galleries, and walked away with a lateral file cabinet and an office chair. If we hadn't been so lucky, the folks at this auction house advised another spot to try, specifically for office goods: Direct Office Furniture Warehouse, which is also on Western Ave. and run by the same folks.This place does it all when it comes to your home office: they buy your furniture, and sell both new and used pieces (they deliver, too). Since the stock rotates regularly, you'll find a lot of basic "office" styles, but it's worth digging to discover something a little more special that suits you and your home. The used stuff isn't featured online, so this is a must-see-in-person experience. Since we had luck at Direct Auction Galleries, we never made it down to the warehouse. Let us know if you have!
