College Move-In Day is coming right up! Before you know it, the apple of your eye will be heading to, in no particular order, College Station, Austin, Lubbock and elsewhere.
Not to be disheartening, but for the next nine months or so, most of your kids’ homes will be four cinderblock walls, a bunk bed, two desks, two chairs and a roommate.
GRACEful Buys has some nice—and inexpensive—options to make dorm rooms a bit more homey and better organized.
Size and storage is a constant issue in most dorm rooms. We have tons of cabinets and drawer units that will fit perfectly in small corners, desk-side and under beds. Our selection of bookshelves ranges from floor models to sets of shelves that can fit on top of desks or used as headboards/footboards for beds.
Artwork for nearly every taste lines our store and can add a touch of home to bare dorm room walls. And if the subject matter of the artwork isn’t exactly inspiring to your student, at least the nice frames can be repurposed with pictures of mom and dad.
We have rugs, curtains, lamps, throw pillows, kitsch, and an array of bowls, boxes and tchotchke galore that can be catch-alls for keys, coins, calculators and cell phones.
Speaking of electronics, our back room is filled with TVs, radios and stereo components—all checked out and working perfectly.
So before your scholar heads off to college, head over to GRACEful Buys, 418 East Northwest Highway in Grapevine. We’re open Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. – 7 p.m., Saturdays, 9:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
