— After closing her furniture store next to Off the Beaten Path, Holly Day wasn’t ready to stop selling pieces to locals.

She runs Triple 555 Ranch Design and Staging Ski Towns, and she and her husband, Kenny, run Snow and Sand Travel. They now do most of their business online but have furniture sales once a month at No. 6 in the live/work units next to the James Brown Soul Center of the Universe Bridge on Shield Drive.

About 200 people came to the last sale, she said.



“We sold so much stuff,” Day said. “I can sell it barely above cost, and that’s what Steamboat is, that’s what they’re wanting. They’re not wanting to drive down to Denver and spend a whole weekend and rent a U-Haul and drive it up.”

The couple had taken the store space on Ninth Street temporarily, she said.



“We only had a six-month lease to finish up Marabou’s contract there,” Day said. “At the end of that, they wanted us to sign a two-year lease, and it would have been twice as expensive.”

The Days opted to focus on their online presence. Holly Day said she was doing a bustling home-staging business.

Home sellers “have to have the edge on the competition,” she said. “They have to stage. : If they can’t sell, they’re going to rental units for the holidays, and we’re putting in tons of furniture for the rental units.”

Day said she and Kenny plan to hold the furniture sales once or twice a month, and Triple 555 delivers the items. She said she had two trucks of goods coming in this week, and the next sale will be 1 to 3 p.m. Dec. 20. Last weekend’s was busy, she said.

“We put everything out,” Day said. “I sold a leather couch (for) 300 bucks brand new this weekend.”
