Surroundings warehouse sale! As we are reaching the final stage of our interior renovations we are anxious to have a well organized warehouse area too. We are selling all kinds of furniture, area rugs, accessories, wood flooring, desks, display pieces, etc. Some of this is new and some used. There are some great pieces for updating your storage, study and hobby areas; even the garage. Come by this Thursday and Friday to our back warehouse door. We will be here from 10 am to 5 pm.


Greetings from all of us at Surroundings! We hope you are doing well during this strange time. We are all surviving and actually are quite busy with clients, all of us "masked and sanitized"! Our renovation is nearly complete. Our new displays and showroom are coming together nicely.
One final step is CLEANUP! So this Thursday and Friday we are having a big Garage/Warehouse sale. There will be the usual furniture pieces, area rugs etc. but we have lots of desks, file cabinets, cabinet displays, countertops, and wood flooring.
Some of these great items you might repurpose in a hobby room, store room, garage or study.


Construction has begun here at the shop! Walls are coming down and new ones are being built. We are still open during this time. Any item that does not already have a sale tag on it is 50% off plus an additional 10%. All Christmas merchandise is 70% off.

Remember me??? I have watched over Christmas at Surroundings since 1996. Many of you wanted to take me home, but the ladies would not give me up. Now it is time! I can be purchased this Friday or Saturday at the final sessions of our Remodeling Sale. Come take me home! I am definitely a collectors item, #6/50.
And there are still some other holiday decorations, all at 70% off.

We hope to see you soon!
