Girl, you are going to feel like Martha Stewart on weekend furlough at the Cadeau Home and Gift sale this month.
Here’s your chance to stock up on stylish holiday wreaths, silk flowers in hundreds of varieties, and home accessories straight from the manufacturer at wholesale prices. The Oakland-based company opens its doors to the public just twice a year.
For an example of the bargains, consider 12-stem bunches of silk calla lilies, which sell in stores for $29. At the warehouse sale, shoppers can purchase the flowers for $10 a bunch, or three bunches for $20.
Cadeau’s staff will be on hand to offer suggestions, to give lessons on combining silk flowers and ribbons, and to demonstrate wreath design. “We’ll take a wreath base, add a rose or ribbon, and show people that they can do that, too,” says Alan Macomber, company cofounder and owner.
The Cadeau warehouse sale is October 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 2401 Poplar St., Oakland. For information, visit www.cadeaugift.com.
