con­sign­ment shop­ping

High-end lux­ury con­sign­ment gal­leries make great sources—many items there have been pur­chased by de­sign­ers for their clients from show­rooms that are not open to the pub­lic, only to trade pro­fes­sion­als.

keep a list

Write down what you’re look­ing for. If you’re search­ing for a din­ing ta­ble, know the di­men­sions of the space and mea­sure­ments for the en­try­way ac­cess.

ed­u­cate your­self

Learn the dif­fer­ence be­tween “de­signed by,” “af­ter,” “at­trib­uted to,” “in the man­ner of,” “in the style of,” etc. You’ll of­ten see th­ese terms as­so­ci­ated with items, both in stores and on­line.
