Stephanie sends a tip she shared on her own blog, Fabulously Green. Hotel Surplus buys furniture/accessories from hotels that are redecorating or liquidating. Excess inventories, discontinued items and close outsfrom manufacturers, wholesalers and warehouses are all fair game. One of Stephanie's readers even sent a link to a similar outfit in Denver. While a lot of it is a little too hotel, Stephanie gives some great advice on re-imagining many pieces. It looks like the armoires and the mirrors are the best deals. Thanks Stephanie! Does anyone know of a similar surplus company near NYC? —aaron
