Often there are postings here about how to decorate on the cheap. I recommend freecycling. You can find a local freecycling group through google. In my area, in the past few weeks people have given away: a 100 year old piano a vintage radio china sterling silverware all kinds of furniture plants doors a fireplace screen and a whole lot more. I just got a beautiful solid brass chandelier. Last week I got a nice director's chair. I've given away a perfectly good storm door, wooden lattice panels, a pool cover and chicken wire. It's easier than garage sale-ing, and it's a great way to get rid of stuff you would throw away otherwise.
