Honeysuckle Home goes Modern

Join us as we celebrate our featured artist for November, Roya Gharavi. Roya was born in Nottingham, England in 1980 to a Scottish mother and an Iranian father.
By the age of 12 Roya had lived in the UK, New Zealand and the United States. Her passion for art began at a very young age when she would experiment in the glorious world of crayola. The paintbrush was a natural transition.

In 2003 Roya received her BA in Art Studio from the University of Maryland, College Park. In 2005 she received her Post Graduate Diploma in Interior Design from the KLC School of Design in Chelsea, London.
For two years after completing college, Roya lived in Rome where she continued to paint and exhibit work as well as develop what was becoming known as her own distinctive approach to painting. For the next 4 years Roya lived in London where she began using oil as a medium. Roya has art on permanent display at the Weissman Gallery, London and the Bridge and Tunnel Gallery, Newcastle.
Roya currently resides in Maryland.

Go Shopping….Give Back

Honeysuckle Quality Consignment is designating Thursday, November 5, as a day to Give Back. 20% of the day’s proceeds will be donated to Giving Back, a 501(c)3 non-profit that sponsors the Help the Homeless Drive in Baltimore, Anne Arundel County and now Washington, DC. Both shops, Honeysuckle and Honeysuckle Home, will extend their hours until 7PM for this special event.

We encourage shoppers to join us in supporting an important resource in our community.

Giving Back, Inc. -- a non-profit that sponsors the Help the Homeless Drive in Baltimore, Anne Arundel County and now Washington, DC -- is dedicated to aiding the homeless on many fronts. With the support of volunteers across the region, Giving Back, Inc. provides food, clothing, fellowship and programs aimed at encouraging self-respect and fostering self-empowerment. The program was founded more than 20 years ago by Linda Greenberg of Annapolis, who remains very involved.

Each Christmas, Help the Homeless volunteers distribute warm clothing, food, supplies, and toys on the streets of Baltimore. In 2006, Help the Homeless added Washington DC to the areas it supports. Efforts this year will be directed towards the collection and delivery of the 'backpack' program. Each backpack will include thermals, a sweatshirt, socks, hat, and a warm pair of gloves. Ideally, it will also include a pair of warm boots and a sleeping bag or blanket.
You can learn more about how you can Give Back by viewing the following video

Recessionista Style

The change of season always leaves me wanting to change my surroundings too. But the gloomy economy means my decorating budget just isn't what it used to be. You too? Now is the time to take a harder look at some things you already have and make smart decisions about new additions to your interior. Like the song says, "you've got to reduce, re-use, recylce." Here are some tips on how to update your home's interior, Recessionista Style.


Paint is releatively inexpensive and can make a huge impact on a space. A new coat of paint can even liven up a boring piece of furniture. If you're not feeling brave, pick a warm neutral for the walls and try out one of this year's hot color trends in the form of pillows, throws and accessories.

Reupholstery can really update a sofa or chair and can be worth it if you get a great deal on the piece. New window treatments can also enliven your space. There are lots of inexpensive, simple panel-style drapes available now at retail stores.

A pair of new throw pillows is an inexpensive way to add new life to your existing sofa or chairs.

There are several great on-line resources for designer fabrics at deeply discounted prices. Two of my favorites are Discount Fabrics http://www.discountfabricsusacorp.com/index.html, and Schindler's Fabrics http://store.schindlersfabrics.com/ .


We all have a stash of little-used pieces. Take a look at yours and see if you can utilize what you already have in a new way. If you have glass vases or bowls, place a grouping on a table and fill with lemons or limes. A stack of books is a great way to add interest and a little height to your coffee table - just top them off with a cool paperweight or a silver tray or bowl. Trays are great for everyday decorating too - they can organize magazines on your coffee table or just add interest to a side table.

How about those silver candlesticks you got as a weding gift and never use? Put them to work in a grouping on a side , dining or coffee table. Pretty bowls and containers help dress up your Bathroom and can hold everything from soaps to hand towels to cotton balls. Group like objects or colors for bigger impact.

Fall Fashion

The cooler weather makes us think Homecoming too. And we all know the most important part of Homecoming isn't the football - it's the fashion! Honeysuckle is stocked with designer jeans, junior tops and skirts and beautiful gowns and dresses. We even have evening bags and shoes. Juniors can shop for hot brands like Abercrombie, American Eagle and Hollister and still have money left to do something with friends.

The shop is bursting with a new selection of designer handbags too from Coach, B. Makowski, Kate Spade, Prada, Fossil, Beijo and more all at great prices.

And guilt? There isn't any at Honeysuckle. Bring in your gently used items for consignment and update your fall wardrobe with the money you earn.

Enjoy the weather and we'll see you soon.

Fall Home

The weather is changing and so is Honeysuckle where we are looking towards richer hues, sumptuous fabrics. and comfort.

Fall is the season to start cooking soups, join friends for a football game and prepare your wardrobe and your house for colder months ahead.Consignments have been pouring in and Honeysuckle Home looks like a new store this week. If you are already planning the Thanksgiving table then you should come see what's new.

Need extra glassware for family gatherings or cocktail parties? We've got dozens of styles and types including Crate & Barrel wine, martini, brandy and margarita glasses.

And don't forget to stock up on hostess gifts. It's a great idea to keep several small gifts in a drawer or closet so that you're prepared for that last minute invitation. Check out the collection of well-priced and unique gifts at Honeysuckle. Fortune cookie place card holders, vases, note cards and votives all make charming little gifts.
