"Shop-Alongs" - Retail Buying for the Home 

Personal Buyers on a "Shop-A-Long"

Personal Buyers on a "Shop-A-Long"

If you enjoy the thrill of the hunt and love the hands-on experience of shopping, join us in the fun. Buying excursions, or "Shop-Alongs," as we fondly call them, are a day of personal shopping with the Jessica Dauray Interiors design team. You get the fun of a shopping trip, and we make sure you make the right buying decisions the first time around, avoiding impulse buys. 

Jess and her team of designers make it easy to get everything you need. We start the process by assessing your needs and developing a design plan. Based on your budget, we research and pre-plan to make sure your design excursion is a success and value-driven. During the shop-along trip, we visit pre-selected furniture showrooms and/or The High Point International Furniture Market. We make the process easy and fun. If you're traveling from outside the area, we'll recommend local accommodations and pick you up at the airport. Once the shopping process is complete, we're happy to travel to you to oversee delivery, installation, and final design details. 

Personal Buying Rates:

Shop-along rates start at $1,200 per five-hour day. In most cases, we can get nearly everything you need in one trip - and at deep discounts. Please contact Jessica Dauray Interiors for a comprehensive rate quote and to check availability. We offer a limited number of appointments per month.

Jess Dauray had been our designer for our house in New Canaan, Connecticut 10 years ago. When it came time for a redesign of our interior, of course we looked around for Jess, then discovered that she had moved to North Carolina. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find out that she was happy to work with us by phone, email, Skype and in person to redecorate our house. She sourced all of the furniture and draperies in North Carolina, but used local Connecticut contractors for the installation itself. Not only did this cut costs, it also ensured prompt and responsive installers. And we were pleasantly surprised at the reasonable cost yet high quality of the North Carolina-manufactured furniture she found for us.
