Frugal House

Frugal House Thanks!

Frugal House 2017 was a wonderful event! Thanks to everyone below - and MANY more - who helped raise around $20,000 for the North State Symphony, and have fun in the process!
































Local professional designers, creative decorators, and interior design students design Frugal House as a fundraising event for the North State Symphony, utilizing gently-used furniture and decor to showcase interior design possibilities on a tight budget. All items in the house are available for sale at frugal prices!

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.

Opening Night Party

The Friday, June 9 kickoff 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 are $40.

Open House

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