My booth space at Fleetwood Antique Mall (2R09) is also still on 20% off cash sales.  Come check it out and grab some kitschy summer accessories for your tiki and retro themed entertaining areas! I would like to shake things up in there for fall and would love some of these items to find new homes!  Any of my online items can be left there or I can meet you when you shop so please reach out!

NEW ITEM

I just put the finishing touches on the little teak nesting table set I picked up last month.  In order to correct some of the water damage on the middle table, I sand each table top down and reapplied new danish oil in a many coats sanding in between.  They look nice.  The middle table had the most damage and there is still some slight bubbling of the veneer and a little sliver missing along the trim edge but the dark water marks were all removed with the sanding and they look so much better.  Have a look and see if you can find a little spot for them.  So cute and fun to play with!  You can find them in my etsy shop.

I have done some custom orders recently where I work with a client to purchase something for them per their wishes, then take it home and do my thing cleaning and touching up before I deliver.  This has been a very exciting thing for me and I would love to have the opportunity to help more regional clients in this way.  If you are a serious shopper and would like me to source for you, please reach out and we can discuss!  My services always include getting your items, clean and waxed, touched up and tended to prior to shipping or delivery.   I also have a small selection of inventory that is waiting to be restored.  If you would like to claim a piece, I would let you be involved in the restoration, choose your fabrics, etc.  I also have helped a new client coordinate rehabilitation on a pair of her dining chairs that were in very sad shape.  The seats split down a seam, the legs were all unglued and some spindles were popping out.  I had them repaired and reinforced and just delivered them today just in time for a family gathering. They looked amazing and were solid as a rock.  I would love more local clients so if you are following me from eastern pa region, please reach out at any time to discuss how I can help you! 

I am planning to add some Adrian Pearsall/Craft Associates to my inventory as I am in negotiations to purchase some wonderful items.  Most need restoration and this a great chance to build a piece from the ground up. I would love to help someone make a piece their own. Pearsall founded Craft Associates right in Pennsylvania about an hour or so north of where I live.  He eventually sold the company to Lane.  His designs continue  to be a highly sought after and treasured by collectors.  I will keep you posted but at this point, I am saving up to purchase the items.  I appreciate any and all sales at this time to help me reach my goal of purchasing and then saving these fabulous set.  There are a set of jax end tables and an amoeba coffee table, a Havana chair with moon shaped ottoman, a matched pair of club chairs and a long luscious sofa that I would love to redo for myself..... anyway, some coming attractions!   

Have a super weekend!

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!

MOVING DAY!

Tomorrow I will be moving in to Fleetwood Antique Mall!  It may take me some time to fully stock, but we are starting with the large furniture display pieces and some chairs and see what we can fit!  I will note on the etsy listings which items are available to view at the shop, and also note for you out of town folk, I will need to go there to gather specific questions, take more pics, etc.  Hours are 10am-6pm Wed-Sun and you will find the shop just south of Moselem Springs on route 222.  If you are coming from Reading and the south, it will be on your left.  From Kutztown and the north, on the right.  Look for the life size cows at the street sign.  It really is an ecclectic place and there is a lot of MCM to be had as well as primitive as our area is hot for that.  

What can you expect to see?  Besides a selection of my online furnishings inventory, you will also find a great selection of goodies!  I am taking some of my finest pyrex as I feel no one in the mall is really hitting that market, and as a collector myself, it is one area I just love!  Expect to find a full set of Friendship circa 1971 cinderella nesting bowls and a complete Pueblo casserole dish with lid and plastic hugger.  The Pueblo is a promo piece and it is really cool if you like tribal.  The dish is black, the lid is white with orange/brown native american design.  I also have other cool pieces and a nice 3 pc casserole set of Town and Country.  I am going to put some individual pieces there as well, but I will concentrate on sourcing complete sets if these do well.  If you have not gotten bit by the pyrex bug yet, well, people are not only decorating with these old lovely patterns, they are setting up elaborate displays and changing them out by the season/color/whatever!  There is nothing like a nice display!  I personally collect 50s era snowflakes but you will not find any in my booth!  ;)

Exclusive Furnishings!

I need a nice safe place to show my wares!  I have sourced a matching pair of walnut veneer bookcase topped 3 drawer case (Broyhill).  They are very cool and I hope to keep them stocked with goodies!  They will also be for sale as will most items you see.  If someone buys them, I just have to go find something else!  ;)  I also have a very cute small teak veneer bookshelf with sliding glass doors (above).  It is FABULOUS!  I just oiled her and she is ready to go.    

RETRO THEMED ITEMS

Ok, so I have all of this cool MCM stuff to sell, but I am on to the fact that I do not live in a HOT FOR MCM area.  Hello, we are horse and buggy central!  SO….yes, I am storing stuff here, but I would also like to PAY MY RENT!  So, in order to do that, I have found an awesome wholesale company to select items I feel fit the theme of my shop.  With that said, I have some kick ass stuff coming it! The Honey Do Me tea towels (also for sale direct from me on this web site!) will be there and I just grabbed some more!  I will continue to monitor new items the company puts out and will gobble up anything that fits here!  All are NEW with manufacturer tags.

Indian Sari Quilts and Pillow

Indian Sari blankets and pillows.  Completely gorgeous!  

Indian Sari blankets and pillows.  Completely gorgeous!  

I also picked up a pair of beautiful Indian Sari quilts and a throw pillow to see how they go over.  Since I niche in vintage camping items, I decided these would make a great addition to that section of the shop!  They are handmade from old Sari dresses that Indian women wear.  They will take pieces and quilt them together in a loose stitch (unlike our heritage here).  You will find a miss match of beautiful brightly colored and even gold threaded accent pieces.  We will also find patches and holes because remember, these were worn!  They are a nice lightweight blanket, both sides are different and no 2 are alike!  I can see these used in home decor, VINTAGE CAMPING, picnicking and hanging out at music festivals!  Very BOHO.  Lets face it…no one I know is an MCM purist and right at the tail end of the era the hippies were taking over!   I hope you guys love these as much as I do!  Stock is plentiful at the moment so I can get more, but there is only a limited supply and I will have to pick up at the showroom myself.  The blankets will be tagged at $50 each, the pillow $30.  I did check etsy and similar blankets are going for much more so I think these are a great deal.  I hesitate to list on line at this point because they are all so different…I just think it would get lost in my inventory!  I might pick up some extras next time I go so that I have some when car show season starts up.  I really do think my VW camping peeps will LOVE them. 

Well, I am beat for the evening with lots to do tomorrow!  If you stop by, I may put your to work! :)  Keep watching my instagram feed as I will shoot pics out tomorrow as we progress!!!!! @madmodworldvintage
