So what is The Curtain Exchange?
Some 25 years ago two young mums got together and came up with the bright idea of selling other people’s well-made curtains when they moved house or changed styles. The Curtain Exchange was born and has continued to thrive, now boasting six branches nationwide.
It really does make sense. How many of us store gorgeous interlined curtains under beds and in cupboards just because we have moved and they don’t fit any more? They are probably far too good to give to charity and EBay purchasers expect everything for a song. Why not capitalise on the resurgence of “up-cycling” and sell them through us – good money for great curtains and an opportunity to bag a pair of designer curtains at a fraction of their new price.
Under the guidance of interior designer, Lucie-Clare Watson The Curtain Exchange Ashbourne boasts not only a huge selection of pre-owned inter-lined designer curtains, (think Manuel Canovas, Colefax & Fowler etc) but also a fast economical making up and alteration service alongside antiques, object d’art and a selection of pictures – you could call it a one-stop home dressing shop.
With a standard lead time of up to ten weeks for the majority of curtains how refreshing could it be to pop into the Curtain Exchange and have your windows dressed by the end of the day – a real boon for house-movers and ideal for the buy-to-let market too, when an undressed property can cost you money
We have an ever changing selection of curtains not only from Derbyshire, but the surrounding counties and from contacts in London and beyond. If you wish to buy do visit us, join our mailing list or follow us on Face book. If you are selling – dig out those curtains and give us a call.
