A couch saved and sold, new acquisitions.

What an amazing week and a half!  I have shipped many items and have been working hard!  I am happy to announce that in the last week I was able to complete the restoration on the beautiful sectional and it has been scheduled for pick up with the shipper.  My upholsterer had the cushions ready for me in 24 hours after I left them.  So great to see this couch with perky and soft seat cushions!

No doubt about it, this is one sexy sectional!

She is headed to South Carolina to be the star of am 1800's built home!  I know she will fill the role with grace! 

I have arranged shipping with a great company with limited delivery areas in the south (based in Atlanta) and also has service in the mid Atlantic (based in NJ).  They were able to save my buyer $200 off the chairish quote with plycon!   

My lights have been going out the door as fast as I can go over them!  The gorgeous 4 light pendant fixture is on the bus headed to Nebraska.  I will be working on the tension poles next.  I also picked this beauty up yesterday!  What a fun piece for a retro kitchen nook!

Love those daisy accents!  

I also picked up a great bookcase!  It features sliding glass doors and a fixed shelf.  

I picked up a great little bookcase that features sliding glass doors and a fixed shelf.  It is in great condition.  I will be adding it to the etsy store and although I could bus ship, I'd prefer a local meet because of the glass,  I may work it into my booth as well.

Size is 36" by 12" by 35-1/2" tall

i also scored a pair of chrome Bertoia chair knock offs in a great counter height. Front of seat is 23-1/2", top of back 40" from floor.  Knowing how most folks want the look without dropping up to $1000 a chair and honestly, the bar and counter height chairs are not as common to find in the secondary market, I picked these up.  They look new as there is tag residue on them.  Seem sturdy and will add some class to a kitchen counter or bar.  I will be pricing them at $150 for the pair and taking them to the mall space for cash/carry local peeps.  Only a Knoll aficionado will recognize that they are not the real deal so your secret is safe with me! 😂✌️

Chrome finish.  Super great pair!

These will be great in a modern kitchen! 

Choice of 2 Herman Miller Eames Shells, better than ever!  Reimagined with reproduction rocker base from Modern Conscience. I will be holding on to one of them so when one sells, I will be pulling the other listing!

I have both rockers in my possession and adore them both!  I will say the tan (Greige) shell is more of a collector piece since it is very early.  Dates 1951-1953 and is the first modification on the original Zenith production shells.  It's a harder, and in my opinion, more fragile fiberglass than the Summit Plastics black shell.  From my research, I would date that one as late 50's or early 60's. It has the S circle Summit logo and the double triangle logo plus the Herman Miller logo stamped into the fiberglass.  The upholstery is in good shape with only one puncture tear and some marks/discoloration on the vinyl.  Very minor issues.  Both of these chairs are iconic pieces of MCM design and recognizable by even the most novice of fans.  Such a cool piece to add to your home and definitely will not depreciate in value.  I have taken great care to restore them so they are in ready to use condition.  Perfect for parents to be!  The chairs really do not take up a large footprint either, so you can slide into a tighter space.  Locals can see them both in person to decide!

New Dining Set and Previews of upcoming restorations.

Summer has arrived with a vengeance here in PA!  I went from not wanting to hang out in my garage all day because I was freezing to death, to sweltering in the sun!  Progress is being made slowly and I will work through my projects.  My latest save is a gorgeous 1959 Drexel Counterpoint dining set by John Van Koert.  It is amazing!  Great lines feature a cherry top and mahogany ends and legs.  It has a very Danish look to it.  It is not mint, but cleaned up well.  I only have 3 chairs and not sure how easy it will be to add to them but any walnut or teak chair would look nice and currently trending are fun mismatched looks in the dining room.  I priced this set less than a recent sale for the table alone and am happy to be able to offer such a great set well under value.  I am also willing to recover the seats for you in black vinyl or any fabrics I have in stock.  You are welcome to do it yourself with fabric you have or buy as well.  My etsy listing is for pick up or regional delivery only in eastern pa, nj, ne md and de areas.  If you are in love and require shipping, my chairish listing should be live shortly and they will arrange your shipping.

The table is totally customizable!  40" wide by 60" in length, but add three 12" leaves to max out at 96" long!  Great for entertaining!  Also note there is a great locking feature to lock in the top when using no leaves.  No accidental separation!   

Profile with all 3 leaves inserted.

The locking device is easy to reach at one end of the table.  Turn the handle to lock or unlock when you are not using any leaves.

Gallery Showing at Fleetwood Antique Mall

You are cordially invited to view my latest restorations now on display at my booth in Fleetwood Antique Mall. Stop by and see the Heywood Wakefield chairs in all their fabulousness!  My space has been reworked to accommodate these beauties and I will announce when I rework it again but I plan to keep them out there for at least a month. I have also left fabric swatches so please take one along if you need to check your space.  Please check with Karen at the mall for her hold policy if  you need to decide after you leave.  I think she told me they take deposits.   These beauties are offered at my ROCK BOTTOM price if you purchase at the mall and take home with you.  In order to encourage keeping the blue chairs together, I will offer discounted pair pricing but will also allow purchase of a single AT THIS LOCATION ONLY.  Please note that each chair required about $100 in materials and a week worth of labor to restore.  MIX AND MATCH PAIR PRICING!  Want one of each? Go for it!

Because that fabulous wool kilim area rug I have looks SO GREAT with the blue chairs, it is there as well, also offered at a better price than my online shops. AND further discounted if you buy it WITH A CHAIR!

Come on out and have a look!  Spring has sprung and it is a great time for a road trip!  There are many other shops in our area to visit!  

Visit fleetwoodantiquemall.com for Store info.  Hours are 10am-6pm WED-SUN.  Located on route 222 just south of Kutztown.  Please note there are detours on route 662 coming through Fleetwood so you may want to choose Route 73 if coming from the south.
