Best Home Decor: Ballard Consignment

The people have spoken.

You might find yourself looking at new furniture, wondering how people manage to afford it and pay rent; well, Ballard Consignment strikes a happy balance between stylish and affordable. For bedroom, living room, dining room, and office, Ballard Consignment carries many different styles of furnishings to help make your living space feel less like a shelter and more like a home—all at a price that should leave some room for groceries. 5459 Leary Ave. N.W., 859-9956
