NEW YORK (AP) There’s a new furniture line on the shelves at Thrift Store Mart in Brooklyn, but for many of its employees, it will likely be another new trend.
Furniture retailer Martin’s is selling a collection of reclaimed wood and salvaged furnishings, which are called Furniture in Bed.
It’s an homage to the classic 1930s furniture store where people could buy bed and board, including a selection of modern styles and materials.
Martin’s president and CEO Steve Gorman said the thrift store is also going to be a place where you can go and see old furniture and other items.
“It’s a really big part of the store,” he said.
Martin’s will sell its old furniture in a thrift shop that is located on its third floor and a second floor of the same building.
Thrift store workers will also be given a chance to buy the items and get their own vintage furniture collection.
Thrifty shoppers who live in the building can get a discount on the thrifty items.
Martin’s was founded in 1933 and has locations in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
Its main customers are upscale fashion boutiques and furniture stores, with some upscale boutiques selling vintage items and other furniture items.
