Winner: Carol K. from Geneva, Illinois

“I have redecorated my dining room with items from The Courtyard. These items include crystal goblets, a brass chandelier and a French pastry table.  The Courtyard benefits Wellness House as well as its’ consignors and patrons.  Happy Anniversary to The Courtyard and its’ volunteers.”

When notifying Carol of her winning entry, she informed us that the goblets were her very first purchase from The Courtyard, 25 years ago.  She noted that each piece has a special story which she was unable to convey in the 50 word limit.  She also said the $250 gift certificate will come in handy in finding that special piece for the empty wall over the French pastry table.  “I would love a gorgeous French mirror.”


Runner-Up: Amy M. from Hinsdale, IL

“My kids like to draw, so they needed an art table in the main living area.  I bought one from a big chain children’s store, but it never hid the mess.  I found this lovely oak piece at the Courtyard with DRAWERS!”

Runner-Up: Rosemarie P. of Chicago, IL

“I bought this velvet side Chair as a slipper chair for a bedroom. It happened to match the turquoise accent color of the room- $75 was a deal.”

Runner-Up: Elise W. of Western Springs, IL

“My patio furniture could not fit more perfectly on my cozy patio.  I often find myself sitting outside on the furniture with a glass of wine on a warm summer’s evening.  The Courtyard helped me find the exact element of charm that I had been searching for while giving back.”
