Thanks for your support!  I will probably not check anymore until after vacation.  We have a lot of packing to do!  Our agenda includes living in our 1989 VW Vanagon for 10 days.  We will be camping in the Moose River Plains of the western Adirondacks and ending up at the moe.down music festival in Turin, NY. Cannot wait and hoping for some moose, loons and other great wildlife spotting!

Have a great holiday! Malissa

oh and hey! Everyone loves the curtains I had in my booth.  I decided to list them as I swapped them out for summer and expect an air conditioner in my window soon. They are gorgeous and colorful! See the etsy shop for details.

Heywood Wakefield HEAVEN.

If you know me or have poked around a little, you will see I am an avid collector of Heywood Wakefield blond furniture.  I have been collecting for a few years and have quite a bit of things.  Some in original condition and others I bring back from the dead.  Last weekend I found a great estate sale locally with a house full of it!  It worked out that the sale started on Friday, which was my day off!  I had a pet emergency first and arrived a few minutes late to the sale, but to my surprise, the rainy day had kept many away and the few other dealers and pickers milling around just were not interested in the furniture.  I quickly realized my meager budget would not allow me to purchase much, so I decided these 2 chairs were priced decent for me to restore and hopefully be able to cover my expenses.  I left with them!

Rare enough to find an upholstered piece of HW...a pair is just HEAVENLY!  The one on the right seems to have been a doggie's friend and has more damage than the other.  Legs need tightening, wood tended to and doggie issues erased, but these are going to clean up fabulous!

I was happy with my purchase but knowing the rest of it was sitting there an not knowing if someone would take it in, was killing me.  I went on with my business and headed to NJ to spend Sat with a friend helping him clean and wax his new set of HW dining furniture.  He did good, got a great deal and we will need to do some restore work over time, but it is usable and looks great in his space!  The last day of the sale was Sunday, so I planned on hitting it on my way home to see what was left.  I got there with 20 min to spare.....and to my surprise....EVERYTHING was still there!  There were some great casework items in excellent condition and I know how hard they are to find reasonable.  I decided before I got there that if the Tambour Utility Case was there I should get it.  VERY RARE and a brand new one that is being made by the new regime goes for $1200.   I was able to save $75 per piece and then negotiated another $50 off my take.  Here is what I got!

My inventory is so happy spreading out on the new bookcases!  The corner case was my holy grail of attainable pieces and you never find them in what I call 'attainable' pricing.  I think I love them so much because they remind me of school libraries.  Totally modular, Hey Wake's casework is by far exceptional, in my opinion.  Shelves are on pins and fully adjustable.

This tambour door case features one adjustable shelf.  It was not on my holy grail list as it just is not something you find easily or cheaply.  I was over the moon to find this and I paid a mere $250 for it!  It is in impeccable condition!  Tambour is not something I want to take on for refinishing....it is a total pain in the ass!  ;)

Aren't they beauties!?  Great thing about being a legit dealer is I get to write this stuff off for my office!  YEA!  I will have a single straight bookcase for sale I no longer need.  Will keep the one that aged with this set and sell off my other one.  If you are interested let me know.  I have offered it up to a friend first so will wait to see what he wants before I list it.  Oh and as for the chairs?  I'm thinking one of these hues....but leaning towards the blue in the back.  Will be consulting with my mom tonight!  Master sewer and patternmaker, I think we can handle these!  So excited!  Will also be using these Joybird fabrics at $30/yd.  So price point for these babies is going to be a bit high, but I want to do them justice!  The one has some wood damage due to a suspected small dog using it.  The arm is a bit damaged, but nothing horrible and I can totally restore it.  Not sure what the insides look like until I take the upholstery off so hoping the foam, springs and guts are decent.  Will see you can follow along as I go!  I am so excited and hope to get rolling on them shortly!

I am thinking the blue in the back!!!!  Let's see what mom thinks tonight!

Just a note that I expect this month will be busy.  I have been shipping stuff every few days and people have been inquiring for quotes.  I always try to get things back to you very quickly but swim season started up so I am dealing with weeknight practices.  You will hear from me with an estimated time frame I can get your info to you!  Thank you for your support!  xo Malissa

Ready for a new home! UPDATE! THESE HAVE BEEN SOLD!

I finished the 2nd Eero Saarinen chair last night.  I just want to polish the chrome legs before I am ready to ship them off.  They are truly stunning and I am happy I could work with them.  I have seen these chairs in tweed and let me tell you, the velvet is a lot less office like and definitely richer than the tweed fabrics!  These will make a lovely addition to your home or even small office.  The upholstery is in amazing condition with only the teeniest signs of wear.  The foam in the seat backs are definitely in less than stellar condition, but under normal wear, they should last a long time before it has to be dealt with.  They are very comfy and a nice sturdy chair.  If you are regionally to me, I welcome you to meet up and have a look at any of my furnishings before you buy!  I totally enjoy saving them and finding them new homes!
