Summer is picking up!

IMG_6518.jpeg

Things are moving out! It is a great feeling to connect folks with awesome pieces for their home! That said, as we are rolling into the busier months I am trying to get some inventory moved and especially so the items I have on consignment. I’d like to find them homes and get my clients paid. I have the hoop chair and a small green Thonet side chair out at my booth space…..$150 for the hoop chair and $50 for the Thonet. They are my lowest prices because I don’t pay many fees to sell there. Please stop by and check them out and the black pole lamp! I also have a cool pair of early Saarinen side chairs with fiberglass backs. They need some love but are worth giving up. A gorgeous set of 3 chrome Bertoia barstools with custom chartreuse boucle seat pads. My client is motivated to move these and I will present offers to them. If you are looking for 3 matching commercial grade barstools, please consider them! Purchased new from Knoll and retail over a grand a piece. They make a statement for sure!

The Barbies are all sold and I will be selling the final lot of cases and accessories today to a local toy dealer. That’s progress! I have a few other things to list, mostly glass items. Please keep your eyes on my shops!

I just picked up some Paul McCobb pieces I am in love with and am looking to sell my Heywood Wakefield Triple Bubble Glass cabinet in Champagne. It is beautiful. I will take $1000 for a cash deal, you transport. There is a recent eBay sale of $1500 for this piece. I feel my price is very fair. It is beautiful and many collectors holy grails. If you are looking for one, please message me so we can discuss!

Just in! LANE ‘First Edition’ bedroom. Wow this line is stunning! Generally in decent condition and clean but there are some chips and issues here and there. The finish is very good overall. So sexy! Bedroom furniture never lasts too long in my shop so have a look and grab these well under what my competitors want for theirs! If you are local and paying cash, reach out as I can do better on the price or offer bundle pricing for more than one piece. I have the high boy, low dresser with a gorgeous mirror and a night stand.

If you are shopping from afar, feel free to call me! I talk to many of my clients on the phone! I get that it’s hard to shop for things like furniture from far away and I do my best to describe things in a collectors eye. I am critical on condition and in most cases, my clients comment that the item was in better condition than they expected. I would rather be hypercritical on condition and have you be pleasantly surprised than the other way around!

We are for sale! $100 cash, pick up or meet. Davis RoWland 40/4 stacking chairs, all steel. Perfect for dining or commercial use. All oem floor glides. I used these at my own table.

Want to see my new dining room set up? It’s dreamy! I love Paul McCobb and that is his china in there. These are worth a lot of money but I decided to hang on to them and am so happy!

Not one, but 2 beautiful planner group pieces with hutch tops. Planner group was made to be modular!

The chairs are amazing! Surprisingly sturdy and everything was mint condition. The table went with a relative but I love them with my Herman Miller table! 💗💗💗💗

Please reach out if I can help you with anything! I have about 3 weeks until my census gig gets rolling and I will be working full time hours for about 9 weeks and would like to work hard now so I can slack then. XO MALISSA

Antiques Roadshow? Oh yes!

A friend of ours won lottery tickets to the Roadshow taping this week at Winterthur in Wilmington! I was thrilled when she invited me and we are planning our trip.

I think I am taking some works by Bette Fast. She has a great story and beautiful art. It may be a good way to make her relevant again. I know about her and have done research, but really have no comps on any of her works—-sculpture or painting. So let’s see what we can find out at the Roadshow! It will be a fun day. We are leaving Monday afternoon and probably will not be back until late Tuesday. My production will not be functional but I will ship all packages Monday morning. I have plenty to go out right now. Shop this weekend and it will get shipped Monday.

Can’t wait to report back on the roadshow experience!

INCOMING-

I just committed to some new case pieces and I may be keeping one and selling my Heywood Wakefield triple bubble glass china cabinet! If you are looking for this holy grail piece, in champagne, please let me know. My new pieces will be here beginning of July and I can have this one ready to go prior to or just after. Cash/local clients will get this under value! Most recent eBay comp is $1400 plus shipping. I can do this one for $1000, less if cash. Totally worth it for a stunning piece and it is is fabulous condition with tons of storage.

Barbie world is hopping. Dolls are moving out at a rapid pace and many are heading overseas. One thing about this collection, the dolls realizing the most money are collectors editions purchased through the club. They are silkstone dolls designed by Robert Best and are much higher quality than Mattel toy store dolls. The average low end doll never removed from package is worth between $10-20 depending on demand. I am thrilled to be able to see this collection as the garments and detailing on the high end barbies are amazing. If you are a mid Century fan, you should check out the many retro reproduction dolls from the 50-70s. Most of these are better collectibles and will display fabulously. You will not want to remove them from the box if you want to preserve their value. Everything must be intact and perfect for a collector to pay top dollar, but you only live once and you can’t take it with you so do what you want with your own collection! They are leaving quickly! Check them out while you can!

Ready for homes! Buy direct for my best price!

Just finished this set! It needed a bunch of help including structural work, glitter bomb eradication and we even fabricated a new rung on one of the chairs which I stained to match. They are really handsome. Medium pecan color, nice and warm. Beautiful cane accent for texture. 2 arm chairs, 2 side chairs. I would like $200 cash for them, if you want to purchase and have me ship, I can Greyhound them. You pay shipping and fees plus a nominal packing charge. Local meets/delivery. Regional delivery for a nominal fee.

That’s all for now. 🥰 Malissa
