Busy week wrapping up some summer camps and swim season for the kids. Will not be long and they will be back to school. I am out of town this weekend so any sales that come in over the weekend will be shipped Monday or Tuesday next week. That said, do not forget July 30th at 11pm is the deadline to take advantage of my shopwide sale on etsy! 10% everything and that includes my newest items. I have been listing throughout this sale so come check it out!
My booth space at Fleetwood Antique Mall (2R09) is also still on 20% off cash sales. Come check it out and grab some kitschy summer accessories for your tiki and retro themed entertaining areas! I would like to shake things up in there for fall and would love some of these items to find new homes! Any of my online items can be left there or I can meet you when you shop so please reach out!
I just put the finishing touches on the little teak nesting table set I picked up last month. In order to correct some of the water damage on the middle table, I sand each table top down and reapplied new danish oil in a many coats sanding in between. They look nice. The middle table had the most damage and there is still some slight bubbling of the veneer and a little sliver missing along the trim edge but the dark water marks were all removed with the sanding and they look so much better. Have a look and see if you can find a little spot for them. So cute and fun to play with! You can find them in my etsy shop.
I have done some custom orders recently where I work with a client to purchase something for them per their wishes, then take it home and do my thing cleaning and touching up before I deliver. This has been a very exciting thing for me and I would love to have the opportunity to help more regional clients in this way. If you are a serious shopper and would like me to source for you, please reach out and we can discuss! My services always include getting your items, clean and waxed, touched up and tended to prior to shipping or delivery. I also have a small selection of inventory that is waiting to be restored. If you would like to claim a piece, I would let you be involved in the restoration, choose your fabrics, etc. I also have helped a new client coordinate rehabilitation on a pair of her dining chairs that were in very sad shape. The seats split down a seam, the legs were all unglued and some spindles were popping out. I had them repaired and reinforced and just delivered them today just in time for a family gathering. They looked amazing and were solid as a rock. I would love more local clients so if you are following me from eastern pa region, please reach out at any time to discuss how I can help you!
I am planning to add some Adrian Pearsall/Craft Associates to my inventory as I am in negotiations to purchase some wonderful items. Most need restoration and this a great chance to build a piece from the ground up. I would love to help someone make a piece their own. Pearsall founded Craft Associates right in Pennsylvania about an hour or so north of where I live. He eventually sold the company to Lane. His designs continue to be a highly sought after and treasured by collectors. I will keep you posted but at this point, I am saving up to purchase the items. I appreciate any and all sales at this time to help me reach my goal of purchasing and then saving these fabulous set. There are a set of jax end tables and an amoeba coffee table, a Havana chair with moon shaped ottoman, a matched pair of club chairs and a long luscious sofa that I would love to redo for myself..... anyway, some coming attractions!
Have a super weekend!
