There are places here in San Miguel de Allende where you can buy furniture but it is probably better if you go to Queretaro, which is about 45 minutes away from San Miguel, because you have more options there. There is a big shopping center in Queretaro called Antea and they have furniture stores there, too.
In comparison to the US, living there is all about buying and throwing away things so when it comes to shopping for furniture, it’s easier to do it in the US because they have cheap stores where you can go like Marshalls and Ross, Target, etc. where you can find anything you want. We don’t have those kind of stores here in San Miguel. There is Liverpool here in Mexico, which is a big store where you can buy anything that you need but it costs more compared to the malls in the US. We don’t have a Marshalls here in San Miguel so we go to bigger metropolitan cities for shopping.
The furniture that you can buy here in Mexico is similar to what you could buy in the US in places like Target. However, furniture here might be of better quality here because they were made here. You could actually go to a furniture maker and tell him what you want made and he will make it for you. Custom-made furniture here in San Miguel de Allende will cost you about the same amount as store-bought furniture in the US. There is a furniture store here in San Miguel called Namuh where they sell imported items from Indonesia, India, and other countries, so their items are expensive but they are very beautiful.
Personally, I didn’t buy my furniture here in San Miguel. I bought my furniture in Queretaro. You can buy all sorts or decorative items in San Miguel such as nice shelves, tables, flower vases, etc., but for big furniture items like a living room set, I bought that in Queretaro.
