Catoosa native Karen Parham has come back to her roots with her new consignment store, A 2nd Look.

Shopping for a furniture ­bargain is fun and easy on a budget at A 2nd Look in Catoosa. The consignment store on Route 66 offers ­furniture, home décor, gifts and more, with an eclectic mix of antiques, painted ­furniture, traditional and trendy pieces.
    Owner Karen Parham, a Catoosa native who now resides in Tulsa, says she is pleased to come back to her roots with her new business, open since November. There is something about Catoosa’s small-town friendliness and people knowing and caring about each other that made this the ideal place.
    “I want people to know they can come in here and get a good piece of furniture for a good price,” she adds. Big things and little things for every room in the house – A 2nd Look has them all. A recent visit featured a ­complete dining room set, chests, trunks, chairs, tables, lamps, dishes, wall décor, home accessories, fashion jewelry and vintage linens.  
    A lifelong bargain hunter, Karen takes every ­opportunity to shop for ­merchandise to add to her pre-loved consignments, many of which are like new but at a small fraction of their original prices. “If I find something special that I know a customer is looking for, I’m happy to take a ­picture and send it to her,” she says. Going the extra mile to please customers makes shopping at A 2nd Look a welcome experience that sets it apart from any other store.
    Also featured are CeCe Caldwell eco-friendly, natural clay paints. This self-priming paint is popular among both novices and professionals for furniture, walls and just about any surface. No fumes and no BOC’s makes CeCe Caldwell paints a wise choice for household members with respiratory ailments or other health issues. A 2nd Look carries quarts and sample jars of all 36 colors and five ­finishes.  
    Among the gift lines at A 2nd Look are the all-­natural Salt Soothers bath salts and body scrubs that feel as good as they smell. Personalized plates, platters and mugs can be ordered with names or dates to thank a hostess, mark a wedding day or baby arrival, or to say “thank you” to a favorite teacher.
    New consignors are ­welcome with a few pieces of good, clean merchandise or a full gallery. Whether buying or selling, A 2nd Look is worth taking a look. The store is located a mile and a half northeast of Hard Rock Casino Tulsa, in the Village Mart Shopping Center across from Bank of the Lakes.
