When I was a little girl, my mom and my older sisters would spend every other Saturday touring model homes.
They used to oooh and ahhh at the furniture and decor, jotting down ideas and drawing their favorite designs. Then we’d head home to rearrange furniture and try to copy the decor.
Now, it’s easy to buy the furniture and accessories in model homes. Nancy Rhodes, owner of Furniture Affair in Phoenix, specializes in model home closeouts.
You’ll find top-quality pieces for half the price. Because Nancy is always out buying, the products change almost daily. Visit often and bring a truck.
Through Saturday, the shop will donate 5 percent of all sales to the St. Vincent de Paul’s Fire Relief Fund, to help those whose lives have been devastated by the California wildfires. Join them 5:30 to 9 p.m. Saturday for champagne and a silent auction at 15602 N. Seventh St. (602) 547-7051.
This week on "On the Go With Terri O," we’ll take you horseback riding in the White Mountains. "On the Go" airs 3:30 p.m. Saturdays on KTVK-TV (Channel 3).
