You have entered into... The accessory zone, here you will find a wealth of information. We at Arden's have spent the last 25 years and $6,000,000.00 putting this info together so that you don't have to (just kidding, but if you add up the time...)! Accessories are interesting, and or unique, objects used to accent areas of your home. At Arden's we have different accessories than you will find nearly anywhere. In fact, downtown Libertyville is a wonderful place to find accessories, as there are many other stores right here that have a rich selection accents and accessories. Come on down and explore Arden's, or make a day of it in downtown Libertyville!
THE BASICS Accessories is such a huge category you can only describe it as; everything not in one of the other categories. We have everything from vases, mirrors, silk flowers and trees to clocks, artwork, even a collectors' train which no one else has.
COLLECTIONS There are not typically collections in this category, however there are collectables...
WHAT TO CONSIDER When buying accessories the sky is the limit, the only thing that matters is that you like it, everything in this category tells your guests a little about who you are. Accessories range in price from the fairly inexpensive to the absurd. Most of the accessories we carry are in the middle of that area. We are very proud of the variety we have, and try to have items you won't find anywhere else. This is a great place to help "express your character" and add a personal touch to your home.
MAINTAINING YOUR ACCESSORIES This is a very general section especially for accessories because there is no way to give specific care tips for a category with such range. You cannot go too wrong using a duster once every couple days no matter what you are cleaning; some times this will not be enough. If you are dealing with a glossy wood finish you want to be careful not to scratch the surface. A good way to do this is to first gently dust the piece, then use a clean damp cloth to finish the job. You almost never want to take a dry cloth to a glossy finish as this will almost certainly put little thin scratches in the finish. When in doubt, call a professional.
ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS … Choose your accessories around your tastes and personality!
REPAIR Given the scope of this category we recommend using common sense, if the value (dollars or sentimental) is high, we (or other) may be able to repair your items.
