It’s been around a yr because we have lived in Florida and ultimately made the decision to head about to the Lakeland Antiques Mall to see what sorts of Disney and DVC goodies we might discover. You may be asking oneself what on earth is the Lakeland Antiques Shopping mall? In a city identified as Lakeland, Florida, about 60-90 minutes southwest of Disney Environment is a giant “mall” stuffed with collectibles, antiques, and junk marketed from about 250 distributors. It truly reminds me of a large property sale. The most notable thing about this spot is there is normally old stuff from Disney parks and resorts. Since we have been curious as to what we might find and we basically are living really shut by, we determined to test it out. Here’s what we found!
For starters, there ended up a ton of textiles from pillows, curtains, and mattress runners. On the shelves have been plenty of pillows from Saratoga Springs’s refurbished rooms and they appeared new so they should have been from overstock. We also saw pillows from BoardWalk Villas that also looked new. Grand Floridan and Bay Lake Tower equally experienced pillows that ended up clearly in used affliction. Up coming up were bed runners from Saratoga Springs (pre-refurb) and Animal Kingdom Lodge as nicely as other non-DVC Disney resorts. There was even an outdated Polynesian resort pillow from before the refurb. Pillows were in the $20 array- high priced for an aged made use of pillow, not lousy for a thing newer, and priceless if you love Disney resorts enough.

We noticed a respectable amount of money of furniture randomly all through the shopping mall. Not DVC relevant, but I located it exciting that you could essentially recreate the total Pirate-themed place from Caribbean Beach front Vacation resort as a lot of pieces from individuals rooms ended up listed here. And let me explain to you, centered on the condition of these parts, the refurbishment was a great deal essential. They even experienced a espresso table from Disney Cruise Line! Notable home furniture goods similar to DVC were primarily from Boulder Ridge these kinds of as chairs and dressers. I imagine that as the refurbishment carries on, we will see a lot more Boulder Ridge products show up. The rates different. But most furnishings was at the very least $100+.

Scenario and point…
And just because, we could not go house without everything. I did enjoy the BoardWalk pillows and whilst I’m leery about “used” material goods, they appeared to be model new and I however washed it as soon as we bought house. I love that I could provide a minor little bit of my favourite vacation resort to my residence business office.
In addition to old Disney resort things, we uncovered Disney Getaway Club goods these types of as previous DVC video games, cups, baggage, and so on. Some of the costs although have been equivalent to what you would find on eBay. Having said that, there were also some specials to be uncovered if you looked adequate.
