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!!!

Marimekko Yardage Available!

Announcing some great yardage choices now listed in the etsy shop!  This out of print stash of fabrics were floating around back rooms at Crate and Barrel stores and was being blown out at their outlet store by the yard.  They found a very small stash yesterday as we were told it was all gone.  So I snagged a few bolts!  I definately have more yards than what I have listed in the etsy shop so if you need a large quantity, message me and I will measure and cut off the bolt for you.  This is an awesome opportunity!  I checked out what is on etsy and mostly remnants at prices higher than my $20/yard price.  I will cover your shipping to make it easier for multiple quantities at checkout.  If you need more questions answered or pics, just shoot via etsy messenger.  I will be keeping a stash for myself so if you think you want some, please commit soon!  The linen is amazing!  It is a nice and heavier weight.  Would make a gorgeous drapey dress!  They all would make great table cloths or runners.  High quality fabric.  Add some great colorful prints to your life and style! <3

I have a super busy week!  Something is shipping out on Thursday, working the election day poles tomorrow as I have been appointed JUDGE OF ELECTION at my poling place which should be a fun and crazy day, plus my kids are in the throws of end of the year school activities so I have a band concert Thursday night and am chaperoning on a band trip at the end of the week. I will be available but bear with me if I am slow to respond as I am trying to keep up with everything going on!  Have a great week!  xo Malissa

Flokati- it's a rug, it's a throw, Vietnamese silk lanterns.

Last week, I headed out with my friend Laurie for yet another urban picking adventure. We make a day of it with the goal of heading to our favorite estate company and then thrifting and shopping the whole way home.  This trip did not disappoint and although I would say I am not really in spending mode right now, I got some great items at a relatively low cost which always is good!  The highlight of the trip is always a great view of Manhattan from NJ.  I find that shopping in this area gets me a different selection of goods that are not readily available in the more country area I typically shop.

My favorite picks are the two Flokati rugs I bought home.  I already have one of my own, so both of these are listed for sale.  The Flokati is of Greek origin and is made of wool.  The pile is left long and it has a great shag.  They are used as a throw over a couch, bed or bench and as a rug.  They have some weight to them too.  These are both in excellent condition and have no stains or issues.  One is a larger rectangle size and the other is smaller and almost square.  Take a look and see if you can accommodate one.  They are great for MCM purists, boho and eclectic decors and more.  They add a real nice texture to a space and are a great neutral cream (natural wool) color. Both are listed in my etsy and chairish shops. Great holiday gift!

WIKI: A flokati rug is a handmade shag wool rug. Making flokatis is a long-time tradition of the Vlachs in the Pindus mountains. The natural color of a flokati rug is off-white, but they may be dyed different colors. The entire rug is wool, including the backing from which the tapered shag emerges. After the rug is woven, it is placed in the cold water of a river to fluff the shag. They continue to be handmade in the mountains of Greece and are regarded as desirable in American modern decor and children's rooms.

Next up, to go along with my recent Asian kick, which, by the way, is TRENDING right now!  I buy what I love, but so many times I come home with stuff and start poking around or get an email and whammo, there is my new found style, already being marketed and discussed in one of my markets!  I just got a mailing from F Schumacher, fine purveyor of fabrics, wallpaper and accessories that I have a trade account with and they are launching a fabulous fabric panel line all with beautiful Asian designs.  I do pay attention to current trends in the design world as that is how I stay relevant.   So I found some beautiful Vietnamese Silk Lanterns.  In Hoi An, they celebrate every full moon with a beautiful lantern festival in which thousands of silk lanterns are hung about town all aglow.  I picked up 3 of these lanterns, all with an inner bamboo frame system that collapse for easier storage and shipping.  They are VERY large and I find them very attractive in a grouping but am pricing individually.  The smallest one needs some glue and I have not repaired it yet so have not listed it.  You can find them on etsy.  

I get lost in this beautiful painting. The black background is actually green foliage and pink accents. It was amazingly done!

I have worked through the art and ming tables I picked up the other week and most everything is live on etsy and chairish.  I hung the paintings in my living room for safe keeping while they wait for a home and I am in love with them.  The details are lovely and it really classes up my space.  I know whomever takes them in will love them just as much.  I added everything I know about the artist, which sadly, is not much.  Most of it from observation of being in her home and not necessarily facts about her art career.  

I just accepted an offer on the Adrian Pearsall Jacks end tables.  The kidney shaped cocktail table is still available.  I will hopefully be looking to bring some of the upholstered items from this lot home shortly.  I keep going round in my head about them.  For as much as I'd love to restore them and then list them for sale or even coordinate the restoration for the buyer, I really do not have the kind of budget to invest into them without having someone lined up to fund it.  I may just offer them as is for the buyer to do their own coordination.  I have a house full of items I have a lot of money invested into and they just do not seem to find homes fast.  It makes me sad but it is what it is.  I cannot tie more money up into things that sit for a year or more.  That said, if you really love them and want me to help you get them done, I will gladly and enthusiastically take on the project.  

As the push to the holiday season approaches, I will be trying to get through some back stock to list and may even thin some of my personal collections.  I did just list an amazing tension pole lamp that I was planning on keeping but decided since I have another to restore that can replace it, I will let it go.  Keep checking my Facebook and instagram for latest additions to the inventory as I usually post it there first.  

Heading out for the weekend so any sales that come in will be shipped Monday.  Have a great weekend!  xo Malissa
