Al and Cal Homes and Community: New Consignment Shop Franklin MA, Fortunes Found

New Consignment Shop Franklin MA, Fortunes Found

NEW CONSIGNMENT SHOP FRANKLIN MA, Fortunes Found

You might like to know about a new place that just opened in Franklin, MA

Susan Domenikos opened her new consignment shop yesterday.  Fortunes Found

It's called Fortunes Found and it is featuring fine furniture and accessories from antiques to contemporary. 

Conveniently located at 4 Crossing Plaza, Franklin there is plenty of parking and off the main road.

I stopped into the shop yesterday to check it out and was pleasantly surprised to find it to be more like a gift shop!  

Susan Domenikos, the proud owner was a delight!    Smiling widely she personally greeted all that ventured in with a very warm welcome!

 

Browsing around the shop, I find beautiful items, pottery, dishes, a Hitchcock rocker, coffee tables, end tables, paintings, lamps, vintage linens, wall hangings,  as well as items by local artisans.     Dried flower arrangements and hand made bags!    fortunes foundfortunes found

Lots of costume bling and some vintage jewelry..necklaces, braclets, earrings, pins!

Susan says she's always looking for new folks to consign their things with her.   508.346.3775   info@fortunesfound.net

 

Selling a Home?

What a great idea for folks looking to de clutter before putting their home on the market.   You know, you always have those things that you aren't going to use in your new place, but are too good to just toss!    Why not take a trip down to Fortunes Found and offer them up for sale!    Kind of like "Cash in the Attic" without having to go to auction!  

Buying a Home? 

A great place to pick up a new item for less.    Let's face it we all love a bargain.   (See that comfy gray chair in the photo, $35!)

Looking to Buy or Sell a Home?

I'm not just on top of new store openings, but real estate market conditions in the region.  I've been selling real estate locally for the past 24 years.

I love the idea of getting rid of clutter by taking things over to the consignment shop.  It is a win win all the way around.  Congrats on the featured post and a nice presentation.

Good Morning Richie!   You are so right in that presentation is everything these days, certainly true for home sales as well.      Thank you for your kind words!

Thank you for the post. I live just up the road and can't wait to tell my wife. She loves these type of stores!

Carol ANn, I love consignment shops! Our local ones distributes a brochure with info (address, phone etc) on other shops in MetroWest area. I'm not THAT addicted - I have couple of favorite spots to visit and go there when I have a minute, but it's a good for someone who loves a thrill of the deal and wouldn't mind to travel.

Posted by Anna Tolstoy (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 7 years ago

Hi Eric.   I think both your wife and Susan will be thrilled.    Thank you!

Posted by Carol-Ann Palmieri, "Cal" the Real Estate Gal (RE/MAX Executive Realty, Al and Cal Realty Group) over 7 years ago

Anna.   Sounds like they have their own sort of Multiple Listing Service!      The thrill of the deal yes, and I think sometimes strolling through those shops are somewhat of a stress release, don't you?     Thanks for making me smile!

Posted by Carol-Ann Palmieri, "Cal" the Real Estate Gal (RE/MAX Executive Realty, Al and Cal Realty Group) over 7 years ago

Wow, I don't recall ever seeing a localism post like this featured, I'm pleasantly surprised. These types of posts are such an important part of what AR is all about. You have done a very nice job, they picked a great one to feature....congrats!

Carol Ann....I love consignment shops.  It's a tad bit far for me but if I am ever in Franklin I know where to look.  Congrats on the feature.

LOVE consignment shops.  Once, I mentioned them to a former client who had a job transfer and wasn't about to move cross-country with their furniture.  I mentioned "consignment" and she loved the concept.  Great localism too!!

Hi Carla.   Me too!   I have been reminding my clients who are selling about them, and it seems like a perfect option for them.    Thanks for reading!

Posted by Carol-Ann Palmieri, "Cal" the Real Estate Gal (RE/MAX Executive Realty, Al and Cal Realty Group) over 7 years ago

It's probably a good thing that this shop is so far away from me. It could be dangerous. It's just the kind of place I'd love to get lost in for an afternoon. Thanks for sharing.

Hi,  Does anyone have a wardrobe armoire?  I'm looking for my brother, and haven't been able to find one. Thank you!  Anne

Posted by anne over 6 years ago

Hi Anne.    Why don't you give Susan a call.    508.346.3775    If she doesn't have it she might know where to find it.

 

Posted by Carol-Ann Palmieri, "Cal" the Real Estate Gal (RE/MAX Executive Realty, Al and Cal Realty Group) over 6 years ago

Please have the owner update thier information. This business is clearly gone, since I have had the phone number for 2 years now. I get calls all day everyday and would like for it to stop now, once in a while when I first got the number would have been fine, but after 2 years and I am still getting calls all day everyday, it is a bit much now.
