This genuine Kirby Sentria Home Care System is like a transformer that was built to clean your house. It starts out as a standing vacuum, but it can do so much more! It converts into a handheld vacuum without losing any power. It comes with a carpet shampooing system. The handheld zippbrush attachment is great for cleaning upholstery and car interiors. It doesn’t just clean your floors, it can also buff them! AND it also has an air pump attachment!? Who knew one vacuum could do so much!? Don’t let its versatility intimidate you, we have its complete user’s guide in print AND on CD-ROM. It retailed for over $1,800 but here at Mimi’s you can find it for $800!

Before and After

Once again, we’re wowed by what one of our customers has created out of something purchased here at Mimi’s.  Kathy bought a lamp from us last week and immediately went to work making it her own.

She removed the glass globe, flipped the base upside down, rewired it, painted it antique white, and added hanging crystals.

Wow, what a transformation!

We love seeing before and after pictures, so if you’ve purchased something from Mimi’s and have personalized it for your own space, email us pictures and we’ll give you $5 in store credit!

This amazing Lane chair reclines, swivels, and comes with a matching ottoman. What more can you ask for in a chair? This modern, classy piece has all the comfort of a recliner without the bulk. It retails for $800 plus, but it is only $400 at Mimi’s.

Oh, the Possibilities…

Sometimes all it takes to have “new” furniture is a vision and a little spray paint…

One of our customers took an old patio set and gave it a fresh look with dark metallic paint and new webbing for the chairs.

We currently have the “before” version of this patio set in our store for $200.

What colors would you paint the frame?  What fabric would you use to cover the seats?  Imagine the possibilities!

Many pieces of furniture can be updated or customized simply and inexpensively with paint, new hardware, new cushions, etc.  Come into Mimi’s today and see where your creativity takes you!

We just love this new item! Some customers have told us it was used by printers to store old type set. Others say it was used by pharmacists to store pills. We might not be 100% sure what it was, but there are no limits to what it could become. It could be a great place for avid crafters to store their odds and ends. Kids could use it to store their art supplies and little toys. World travelers could fill it with artifacts, sand, and treasures from their many adventures. Gardeners could turn it into a unique multilevel planter! Artists could turn it into a piece about the compartmentalization of the human mind!! Endless possibilities!!! We just love its industrial style and its vintage appeal. It’s sure to add a distinguished touch of class to whatever home (or garden) it ends up in.
