Fleeing the Winter, Leaving the Furniture

"Take it away!" he said with glee. "I've got a flight to catch."

Twenty-five years ago, he'd built the waterfront mansion as a family home. Now, with the children grown and his career shifting into low gear, he and his wife were wintering in Florida. After one month as snowbirds, they impulsively decided to sell the big house.

Who says downsizing has to be time-consuming and exhausting? One week was all it took this guy. He flew to Boston, met with a realtor, hired a mover, brought in the painters and called in FCG. Of course, he was highly motivated: three days of winter snow and slush convinced him this was the right move.

"Have your guys at the house to take the furniture by 3 p.m.," he said. "I don't want to miss my flight. I've got a golf game in the morning."

Well, FCG knows how to hustle, especially when our consignors have something urgent on their calendars. And, after last week's storms, I'd like to think that an early morning tee time on a golf course ringed by palm trees is urgent.

These snowbirds are leaving behind some pretty pieces including some gorgeous oriental rugs, a Baker Serpentine sideaboard and a Hekman executive desk all of which will be arriving today.

You'll also save a lot throughout President's Weekend. Take 10% off just about everything in the stores now through Monday. The only thing better than a golf tan is an FCG Sale Event. Stop by one of our three stores today! Look for New Arrivals all weekend long as Natick has a shipment of top end contemporary furnishings scheduled to arrive this afternoon.
