Some people are working this Good Friday, while others won’t be (and are probably going to have a Great Friday).
For those of us who WILL be working, it’s good to have a list of shops open. Some people will be open for half days (leaving after lunch) so we have split up the list into two with partials closing around lunchtime.
For a longer list of prop houses on Debbies Book, you can check it out here:
I hope everyone has a good weekend, whenever that may start!
We don’t like having to work on holidays, especially national ones, but it is completely unavoidable sometimes. That’s why it’s helpful to have a list of stops you can call when everyone seems closed.
Here is a list of many of the prop houses open this coming President’s Day, February 20:
Stay dry out there, and have a good weekend!
This last Sunday the Biltmore Hotel was spilling over with set decorators. Not for any production, not for their regularly scheduled feeding, but for the Set Decorator’s Society of America’s annual awards luncheon.
Around 11 o’clock set decorators, prop house employees, friends and family began to mill around the silent auctions filled with great pieces of artwork while chatting with each other. A beautiful balloon archway greeted every person as they arrived.
The Lifetime Achievement Award of 2016 went to Ann D. McCulley, an incredibly accomplished veteran of set decoration. Her speech was a perfect mix of inspiration and wisdom, showing this award was justly earned.
As per usual there were raffle prizes handed and swag bags full of pens and what appear to be rubber duckies from NEST. Here’s to another fruitful year for the prop industry!
It’s always great to see new inventory coming through the door.
So if you haven’t zipped over to Advanced Liquidators Office Furniture’s new warehouse location on Vanowen Street, you will definitely be surprised of the new items they have brought in over the past few months.
A perfect example; Vintage Tanker Desks and Mid Century Modern Executive Desks are part of their latest additions. Even cooler, set of New Bank Teller Windows and Bank Deposit Stations.
Oh and for that school lunch room set they have multiples of 12 foot Cafeteria Lunch Tables. Excellent when you need to shoot a scene where dozens of kids are munching on their lunches.
Seriously, swing by their newer location. You will not regret it!
Whether you are looking for your own furniture, or need an office full of items to fill a set, Advanced Liquidators Office Furniture has what you need.
They have new, used, modern and vintage items to choose from. You can browse through their inventory at their huge showroom or prop warehouse, which are both located in North Hollywood. So if you are looking for the “best bargains in town”, give them a call.Website: www.advancedliquidators.com
