Greetings from Colorado Staging + Design!  We hope you’re having an awesome week.

It’s no secret that we love to dig into Northern Colorado thrift stores to see what kinds of treasures we can uncover.  It’s part of our signature staging design, and it gives the homes we stage (especially our new construction staging projects) a cozy, lived in feel.

Know what else we love?  A good challenge!  It’s not all work and no play around here, folks. We thought we’d mix it up this week by inviting our readers to play a little game with us.  Interested?  Read on for the rules of the challenge.

Want to Play the Colorado Staging + Design Challenge With Us?

Here’s how the game works.

1.)  Take $25 in cash.  That’s it!  No fair taking your debit card as a backup.

2.) Choose your thrift store.  We love Habitat ReStore (there are locations in Loveland, Fort Collins, and Greeley as well as nationwide).  Goodwill and arc are also good choices, as well as a number of independent shops.  For an equally fun experience (and a chance to support local businesses) downtown Loveland has options near 4th street or there are a number of Flea Markets off 287 between Loveland and Fort Collins! This would also work at a garage sale or estate sale

3.) Print this Thrift Store Bingo card (or take a screenshot).

4.) Make it even more fun by inviting a friend!  A little friendly competition never hurt anyone.  See who can find the most items for $25 or who can get a bingo within a set amount of time.

5.) Let the hunt begin!  You know the rules; search the store to find items that will give you 5 in a row on the game card (across, down, or diagonal).

6.) Everyone’s a winner.  The best part of the game is that whether you get BINGO or not… you’ll definitely walk away with a fun new accent for your home (and it won’t cost an arm and a leg!).

Let us know if you play the game… and as always, give us a call with any staging or design questions that you might have.  We love working with budgets and projects of all sizes (seriously, no task is too small).

Thank you for visiting the blog today.  Have a great week!
