Dr Jekyll and Mrs Hyde.

Had the opportunity to purchase a bunch of inventory the last few days.  If you have been watching my social media, you know it’s not my typical stuff.  First off, the former owner is still alive at 97 and a retired Doctor and finally moving out of his home.  It was jam packed with fine furnishings and collectibles. I knabbed some great furniture in a Victorian or French Provincial Reproduction style.  Most items were purchased new in the late 60s/early 70s as I can tell.  That said, things are clean and well taken care of.  I already have been processing and listing things so stay tuned to my shops.  I have been adding shipping/delivery into my pricing on Etsy as they are pushing for that. Most furniture sellers do not list shipping but they we get tossed into the Etsy free shipping stuff and it causes some confusion.  I am hedging for shipping in items that need a shipper or greyhound.  Please reach out at any point and I can adjust that number as we research it based on your location.  Want to see what I have?  💕🤗

Amazing authentic Chinese jewelry cabinet.  In perfect condition with lock and key.  

Italian fencing foils. You never know when you will want to challenge someone to a duel. That Chinese rug is in my freezer at the moment. Freezing destroys any moth activity including eggs. I do not want them in my home. A few days in the freezer and no chance of them hitching a ride. No visual sign of moth activity!

The last part of my buy is medical stuff.  Lots of weird stuff.  Yea for that!  I have tool kits, bottles, a scale, vintage sun lamp and so many cool things.  Thinking i will hammer through them and put in my eBay shop. Stay tuned as I will get to that stuff after I get all the furniture listed.  As always, reach out if you need help.  I have adjusted some of my Etsy furniture to include shipping costs as they are pushing everyone to free shipping. If price looks high, read the fine print and this is probably why. I will follow with some preview pics.  I will be working through this stuff in the coming weeks. ✌️ Have a great week!  Malissa

New Video, Eames Dopp Kits online, anyone in Brooklyn want a delivery?

NO SLEEP ‘TILL..........BROOKLYN!

First off, I am headed to the Red Hook area of Brooklyn (via Staten Island)  to deliver some custom recovered dining chairs.  If you are in the nearby neighborhoods and find something you love in my stash, please reach out! *rescheduled until approx March 15. 

DOPP KITS ARE ALL HERE!  I have shipped out (almost all) of my preorders and have set up listings on my web page.   Come and grab them while I got them!  Make great gifts and got an mcm wedding??? Hello groomsmen gifts! 🎩

Next up!  I added another video to my YouTube library! Come check it out and subscribe to my channel!  I am trying to keep my videos pretty short yet still informative.  Give me a few minutes of your time and let me know what you think!  This week’s episode is about Robert P Karoff of Karoff Originals and features a very cool foldable coffee table he invented that is currently in my inventory.  

 

I suggest if you are keen on something in my inventory but waiting for an income tax refund you reach out now.  I will hold items short term or with a deposit if for a week or more.  I just sold a pair of ladder back chairs and the dining chairs I am working on recovering plus I have given many shipping quotes in the last week.  I expect things will be moving quickly in the coming weeks and that is a good thing as post holidays has been slower.  Reach out if I can assist you and I will do my best.  I still have weekday hours doing taxes until April 15th and have been pretty busy.  Thanks for following along!  XO Malissa

Happy Holidays!

I want to take a moment to wish you all a heartfelt Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our family to yours!  I have had one amazing year and surpassed my prior year sales by over $7,000. Thank you to all my clients and friends for your support.  

I pushed to get my latest restorations done knowing I was planning on pursuing some paying work come January and have settled on income tax.  Although I should only be working 15-20 hours a week, this job only goes until April 15th so I am going to try to pad my bank account while I can.  That said, I probably will not be buying much or restoring much for the first quarter.  It may take most of my efforts to keep up with sales and shipments plus the retail space. I will keep listing from my backstock and also will have the husband work through some lighting and small projects laying around.  My delivery availability will be limited as well but I will do my best to work with you.  I will not know my schedule more than 2 weeks out but it’s retail hours plus saturdays in the mix. Wish me luck.  I am not sure this was the most lucrative decision but it is more flexible than what I was finding and I figured ideally, this could get me through the rest of the year.....just not this first season which will be drepressing.

SHIPPING:  I just dropped off a piece with my shipper and they updated me on their plans. After the holidays they will be heading south to Florida then over to Texas (DALLAS) and back. If you are anywhere on 95 corridor to Florida or west towards Dallas from there and are considering a purchase, reach out now! I can get the shipping quoted and firmed up.  I will hold your item with a small deposit with balance plus shipping costs due prior to pick up in January. Scott and Jill are wonderful and have taken many things for me to far away places and because I book them directly and pay cash at pickup, they give me great rates!  I pack and wrap your item myself, just like when I ship on Greyhound, but with them, it never leaves their trailer and they are the only people handling it in transit.   Reach out with zip and what you are considering and we can figure things out! 

The Lane record cabinet is complete and listed.  I noticed I was not finished with it yet in my last update.

If you are in the region and need some quick furniture delivered for your holiday entertaining, reach out! I have time between now and Jan 5th that I can schedule deliveries!  

Thanks again for all your support, referrals and friendship!  I have the best clients! 💕 Now to try to quick catch up with my bookkeeping and make some cookies before Christmas!
