Harlequin Alegro Dance Floor- SOLD

This dance floor by Harlequin is a top of the line portable or permanent semi-sprung dance floor used by studios and traveling dance companies all over the world. Originally we paid almost 6,000 for this beauty for our first studio space.  It’s been used about 4 years total, is very comfortable to dance on, and has much more life left yet. It can be cut to fit any space it’s current size or smaller, and would be great for your home studio. When not in use it can be stored in rolls. We estimate the value of the floor that we have today to be about $2,000, however we are asking just $500. A STEAL for the right person!! Please read the information in the heading above about when this item will be available for pick up and contact us immediately if you want it.

Josephine Desk from World Market

Originally purchased at studio opening for $200 plus tax. This piece of furniture is very stylish in a high gloss white finish. It would look great in any room of the house as either a functioning desk, or just an accent table. It is in good condition, but does have some wear on the top from pen marks and cleaning, etc. Even so, this would not be noticeable, except under close scrutiny, and the table still looks almost as great as it did when we bought it. Asking $125 payable by credit card, cash or check. This is a great deal and worth every penny. Please read the heading above for information about how to purchase and when this item can be picked up from the studio.

Ikea Expedit Shelves (now called Kallax)- SOLD

Originally purchased at studio opening for $90 at Ikea in West Chester in high gloss white, we are asking $75 for them. Yes, we know that is not a huge discount, but it truly is LIKE NEW, and the nearest Ikea is 2 hours away. So, think of it this way- you don’t have to do four hours of driving to get it, AND it’s already put together AND it’s a gorgeous bookshelf in like-new condition. This is a fantastic deal at $75! Please read the top of this post for information about how to purchase this item and when it will be available for pick up.

Large Ikea Expedit Shelves (now called Kallax)

Originally purchased at studio opening for $170 at Ikea in West Chester in high gloss white, we are asking $125 for them. Yes, we know that is not a huge discount, but it truly is LIKE NEW, and the nearest Ikea is 2 hours away. So, think of it this way- you don’t have to do four hours of driving to get it, AND it’s already put together AND it’s a gorgeous bookshelf in like-new condition. This is a fantastic deal at $125! Please read the top of this post for information about how to purchase this item and when it will be available for pick up.

Vintage Shabby Chic Gold Velvet Settee

Adorable! This piece of furniture will add some character to your home, while still functioning as a great seat. It’s in good condition, but has been previously loved. Among other general wear and tear, which just adds to the shabby chic-ness of the piece, I want to disclose that there’s a small hole in the wicker in the right side arm. For the right person, it could be recovered and come back with a new life! If I end up keeping it, I’ll probably paint the wicker and recover it to match our new place, but I thought I’d see if anyone wants it first. Great, sturdy bones! Asking $100 OBO.

Ikea Table

We used it as a dressing table in the dancer’s changing room, but I think it’s supposed to be a two-person work station. Of course there could be endless uses! It also often held food during parties too :-). This table was originally purchased from Ikea for $120 and is in like-new condition. Asking $85- a really solid deal for this item. Please read the top of this post for more information about how to purchase this item and when it’s available for pick up.

Wall Mounted Media Storage Shelf

Great way to organize your accessories, cable modem, dvds, etc without taking up a lot of valuable space. Originally purchased for about $150 online, we are asking $95, a very good price for this item! Must be picked up by the buyer on Ocotober 31st or Sunday November 1st, morning.  We regret that we are unable to hold this item until payment in full in made.

Ballet Barre

Made out of PVC piping by Mr. Dance du Soleil, this barre has been our pillar of strength for the past year (HA!). It is quite long, and does not come apart so you’ll need some kind of truck or flat bed to get it home. The bottom where the feet are attached is not glued- we left it that way on purpose so you can turn the legs and lean it up against the wall when you need to store it. It fits a max of 6 students comfortably at once, but you might be able to cram up to 8 if necessary. Can be picked up anytime after 9 pm Monday October 26th (when our last ballet class ends), but it must be picked up by October 31st (11 am – 3 pm) or Sunday November 1st morning. It probably cost us about $100 bux to make plus blood, sweat and tears lol. Asking what we think is a fair price at $40.

Paris and London Prints

These are actually coming out of Miss Babi’s room in our home, but we do have an extra “London” print at the studio as well. Perfect for a diva’s room! Asking $30 each or $50 for the set of two. If anyone would want all 3 we’ll do that for $70. These were much more expensive when we bought them and they look exactly the same as they did the day they were delivered! Can be picked up anytime from our home in Westerville, OH. Please contact Leyla for details at (330)734-8280 (call or text) or dancedusoleil@gmail.com.


Arhaus Living Room Furniture

If you’ve ever sat on any furniture from Arhaus, then you know the quality is amazing. It’s not your typical living room set that you buy on sale, keep for a few years and then replace. I guess we have expensive taste in my family because This furniture originally cost over $4,000 new, but it was worth every penny because it is the most comfortable sofa and chair I have ever sat on. EVER. The pillows are all down stuffed and the fabric is a textured velvet. Take the pillows off the back of the sofa and it’s pretty comfortable to sleep on- and about the size of a twin sized bed. In fact, it’s so comfortable that even grandpa slept on it plenty of times and loved it! Also, the chair is so large, you can seat two people in it pretty comfortably too. The fabric is a beautiful gold base with what I might describe as a floral-like or paisley-like pattern with muted burgandy, brown and green in it. In it’s hey day it was gorgeous.


All that being said – it’s been well loved over many years in our family and has seen better days. The fabric is faded in many areas from the sun and just shows lots of general wear and tear. It was perfect for us while Miss Babi was growing up and having slumber parties, but like I said, it has been loved. A lot!


Even with the wear and tear, however, for the right family this furniture is still awesome. Because the structure if still super sturdy, It could easily be recovered and gain a second life for probably another ten years. Or if you have a little one that’s having slumber parties, you could just clean it again and use it as is.


Oh, and the hideous ottoman. It’s not from Arhaus, but was inherited into our household some years ago, and got to stay because it does seemingly kind of fit in (in it’s own fugly way) with the sofa and chair. And, as much as I hate to admit, it has served many a great purpose over the years. It’s been an extra seat, a table, and along with the chair, it’s a great place to kick your feet up. It’s so hideous I could barely stand it, but I always just styled things by throwing a nice big blanket over it and that has worked fine.


Original value of the sofa and chair was somewhere around $4,000. Asking $300 for both OBO. You can have the ottoman if you want it. If you don’t, I’m fine with chucking it in the dumpster. In fact, nothing would ever make me as happy as doing that.
