Broyhill set reupholstered, BIG SCREEN premier, etsy sale and more!

Things are moving fast! Only one Heywood dresser left and that is the low one with mirror. See details in my ebay shop or etsy. You want it? You got it! Message me and we can make arrangements!

The Broyhill set just received it’s makeover so my AS IS price has been adjusted to reflect my efforts. The wood has not been refinished but I have oiled and tended to it. There are areas where color is uneven and some light signs of wear. Generally, the whole set is decent. I removed all the old upholstery, replaced the foam and batting with new and used a beautiful gold linen velvet fabric which is very high end and lovely. I scored a good deal of 5 yards of it but it is probably $100 a yard fabric. I decided to dress it up in gold because it looks so great with the walnut and was thinking it would be a great touch for the holidays! Get your home holiday ready! You can see the set in my retail space at Fleetwood Antique Mall, 14129 Kutztown Rd, Fleetwood, PA 19522 Wed-Sun 10-6. They take cash or credit. Please be prepared to haul. They will help you load. If you really want it and cannot haul, you will need to contact me and buy direct so I can get it to you. Here is a look and do not forget I have a great Saga line credenza which will soon be redone up top. As soon as I start working on it the AS IS price will disappear. Your DIY time is running out! I am determined to work my way through this stuff!

Here’s a look at the revamped space. I hung the mirror shadow box and if one of you people do not take that thing home you are seriously missing out on the most fab mirror ever! It looks great over a couch or even on a wall with the dining table. Mirrors are a great illusion to open up your space. This one is cool because it is loaded with little shelves and you can display all your kitschy little treasures. I’d fill it with my christmas pixie elves!

Fabulous Sonneman style eyeball arc lamp just added! Priced at $200. Cement base wrapped with aluminum cover. Socket just rewired and checked by my husband. Cool CFL bulb. I can’t plug this in because my plug is up high but it works fine. PLEASE NOTE! The pole breaks down for transit AND it will come off the base. DO NOT lift by the pole! Please remove from base and then break down the pole and fold. It is a super lamp! Just love it and it is a smaller size so not crazy room hogging like some of them. Perfect over a seating area for reading.

MAD MOD WORLD VINTAGE ON THE SCREEN

I sold a dark green victorian settee earlier this year that is currently on the the set of TELL ME A STORY on CBS ALL ACCESS. The show premiered on halloween night and I did not spot the couch yet although I suspect it is in Kim Cattrall’s living room. Episode two is up tomorrow so I will try to screen shot if I find it! The show is dark but so far I am liking it!

I recently sold a 50s industrial tool cart to the set of a movie filming in Philadelphia called 17 BRIDGES. Look for that next summer! It will be used in a kitchen and will be transformed into a counter with another Lyons piece next to it. Can’t wait to see how they work this cool industrial kitchen!!!

Lastest restorations complete.

Hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving!  It was pretty quiet for us unless you count the washing machine giving up and shopping for a new one, a water leak not long after causing us hassle to dry out but luckily my inventory was spared.  So I have been busy around the house and thankful things have been pretty slow as I am sure folks are out shopping retail.  I had time to get my little projects completed including the rocking chair, which I just put the final touched on today. She is stunning!  I photographed today and sent my listing to Chairish.  If you are regional or can meet me for delivery, the etsy listing is live.  I can quote shippers for you if you need it.  

The perfect piece for a covered porch or sun room! Eclectic and Boho lovers will style it up with a Kantha or Kilim!

When shopping vintage, I know what you will find. This chair had 2 areas of broken weave....it's now repaired. The upholstery was gross and there was an issue with the seat frame....it's now repaired and better than ever.  This chair is as comfy as it looks!

My side project little wire bench is also complete.  I stripped a bad paint job off her (PAIN IN THE BUTT) and then added a gloss black enamel finish, new rubber feet caps and my custom cushion featuring the Schumacher indoor/outdoor fabric.  It is so adorable!  I can see this fitting a toddler perfect and what a cute bench to use in a photo shoot for the holidays or even Valentine's Day!  I can ship in 24 hours or less. 

Super cute wire bench revamped for another life. At the foot of a bed, under a vanity, prop for photo shoots....many uses! The details have been taken care of for you.

The Hundevad piece is a little wider than the Lane hutch and provides even more storage. Danish Modern is always hot.

I just sold the Lane Rhythm hutch that was in my booth so I am currently featuring the awesome Hundevad Teak 2pc unit at my best price.  I will warn you the top part will only fit in a full size truck or van.  I am available to help deliver but only if our Vanagon is in a happy mood, no snow or salt on the ground, etc.  It is currently in the shop for winter repairs and inspection so out of commission at this moment.   As of last Friday when I made the swap, the Cathrineholm bowl is still unclaimed!  Add this $50+ valued piece to your collection by making a $200 purchase with me at the Fleetwood Antique Mall!  I have awesome gifts and some great restored furnishings waiting for you.  My local market can be kind of depressing and while I love shipping my items all over the country, it would be a super surprise to find some local MCM fans who appreciate great design and quality restored goods right here in my area.  If you are reading and have any friends who are looking for items to furnish their homes, please send them my way!  I work with interior design pros all over the country and would love to work with more local folks!

Current view. My pair of blue Heywood chairs moved to Texas.  This orange chair is sad and would love a new home too! Priced at my lowest price at the mall for self service customers.

Yesterday was the closing of the Richard Redd Scrapbook Exhibition that I was fortunate to be able to attend last month.  I got to claim my 2 original framed prints and take them home.  I took a few minutes to chat with him and meet his sweet Pomeranian who never leaves his lap.  I told him that my college did not have much of an art department but I did take an acrylic class as an elective after I switched majors.  And I said I 'stuck it out there' since I did not want to transfer.  He told me in the 1950's when he was a student at Lehigh University (where he taught and chaired the Art Department years later), they only had a 2 person art department and he 'stuck it out' as well.  Amazing how your heart leads you where you need to be regardless of what you study.  In my case, my accounting and bookkeeping career is very much useful to me as I would really be sunk if I had to hire someone!  haha  My interests in preserving the stories and histories of the small artists and especially the local and regional artists that I come across in my picking travels is always the main goal.  Sometimes it is hard to find out a lot like in the case of the Bethlehem woman who I have the beautiful floral paintings from, but in the funny way life is, I just happened to revisit google for Mr. Redd's story just in the nick of time to experience his final exhibition and was so thrilled to be able to add a few pieces to my personal collection.  I do occasionally keep items I am smitten by and tend to keep those with trees in them.  haha  The pieces I selected are very much nature inspired! <3 Now to figure out where to hang them!  I also made a donation to the scholarship in his honor that will be started for art students at Lehigh University.  Your support of my business allows me to give back to the museums and organizations that aid me in my research and being able to contribute to this cause was important to me. <3 

Have a great week and I am sure many are getting ready for the holidays!  I have many performances coming up in December with the 2 ensembles I play French Horn with and it is a busy and exciting time of the year!
