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

Vera Neumann designs reissued

Great news! F Schumacher, whom I have a trade account with, just released their latest line of fabrics and low and behold, Vera!  As a Big fan, I am totally stoked! I immediately ordered samples and they just started showing up.  I will be placing an order and welcome the opportunity to hook you up.  It is only available to purchase to trade account holders like me.  Here’s the deal.  2 yard min or a cut charge, I do pay additional shipping charges.  If you want me to order something for you, I can have your order shipped direct to you, payment required before I order.  All fees will be passed through to you and will include my markup.  I will provide you with a quote. If you want to split a minimum cut with me, I will consider that as well. I am definitely ordering lemons for my kitchen.  Still deciding on what else.  Last...Schumacher is crazy expensive.  It is not something you want to hoard without a plan. This line is priced $60-100+ a yard.  I am selling the Frank Lloyd Wright linens at $40 per 1/4 yard which is 9” by 52” width.  That is retail.  If you want to make pillows, you may want to only make the front panel with this and use a cheaper solid backer. Just a thought. Anyway, if you are a serious shopper and want me to price out your order and discuss any requirements, email me!  I will probably move quickly once the rest of the samples arrive.  Pics?  Yes please!!!

Samples I received so far. The two on the right are wallpapers.

This is gorgeous.  Cotton chintz with a sheen. The full repeat though makes it perfect as curtain panels or maybe a bedspread. You’ll want that to get the full effect!

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
