Frugal House


Frugal House designers utilize gently-used furniture and decor to showcase interior design possibilities on a tight budget. Local professional designers, creative decorators, and interior design students design this house as a fundraising event for the North State Symphony. Community members are invited to the open house and can purchase anything on display. Items purchased remain on-site until pickup day.

Frugal House begins with a party! The party is the first opportunity to see and purchase our imaginative decor -- and have a lot of fun.

All proceeds support the North State Symphony and help ensure that high-quality music is part of Chico’s landscape for many years to come.

The June 9 OPENING NIGHT PARTY, from 6 to 9 pm, will include live music, delicious hors d'oeuvres, a no-host bar, and the first opportunity to shop in the Frugal House. Tickets will be $40.

Frugal House will be open for touring, shopping, and frugal decorating inspiration from 10 am to 6 pm on June 10. Tickets will be $15.

Tickets Available Soon!
