There's a place that has name-brand, designer furniture for a fraction of the original, retail price. The furniture is gently used, but this store isn't a thrift store, an outlet store, or an estate sale.

It's called Random Pieces in Wayne, Pennsylvania.

"I tell my clients not to be afraid of what I call pre-owned furniture," said interior designer Kate Hart. "I'm not talking about used furniture from a thrift store, I'm talking about really quality high-end pieces that you can find in stores that specialize in buying furniture from people when they're selling their homes."

At Random Pieces, a couch from Ethan Allen that might have cost from $2,500 to $3,000 goes for about $950.

We found a China cabinet that originally cost about $1,500 going for about $500.

Chip Addis buys high-end furniture from people who are redecorating, downsizing, or moving.

Then he puts the pieces up for sale at Random Pieces.

"I tell my clients to expect to pay a third to a half of what you would expect to pay for new furniture in a retail store."

Random Pieces is open only twice a month. The next sale is Saturday, October 25th from 8am until Noon.

If you live within about 8-miles of the store, Chip will deliver your furniture for a 15-dollar flat fee. It'll cost more if you live further away.
