I have been busy working through my items to get them ready for listing in between working with customers. I apologize for those who are waiting for specific items! I will get to them, I promise! I also had a bit of a cold last week which kept me less than productive.
I had a very interested party in the sectional and although there has been no formal commitment, I decided to forge ahead on the restoration. I spent a lot of time cleaning the pieces and working on some light stains on the cushions. I managed to lighten them. They are not obvious, but if the cushions are flipped and swapped, they are mint on the reverse sides so that is fabulous! I took to my upholsterer to get a quote on the foam replacement. It was in line with what I hedged for so that is also great! After that, I came home and ditched the old foam and cleaned some more. I also added an internal patch to reinforce a very small puncture that will also be on the underside with the cushions flipped. I will have it ready to deliver in about a week and a half after someone commits. It is a big investment for little old me to do without a buyer. I have gotten loads of feedback in the last week and I am certain she will not be here long! I cannot wait to see her with her properly stuffed seats!!!
***I would totally take a deposit to hold any furnishing in my inventory and ship when paid in full. Please keep that in mind! This works out well for me so I have time to get it packed and then when paid, I can take it right to the bus, I never know how fast my stuff is going to sell and I have worked with folks for a week or 2 until the transaction is complete so definitely reach out if that helps you! I know it is income tax time and if you see something you like and are still waiting for your refund, know I will work with you.
Shipping......so of course I have taken on this very large item that I could not possibly ship on the bus, which is my preferred way of keeping my clients happy with reasonable shipping. I must tell you that I have done extensive quoting on this couch and chairish is THE BEST priced white glove shipping out there. I cannot touch the rates they are getting on my own direct through Plycon. Should you need to use white glove shipping, by all means go to my page and add the item to your cart for check your rate. If you are not a current chairish client and sign up for an account you will get a coupon sent for $20 I think. Also, I can forward one to you with your email so definitely take advantage of it. Chairish is my highest fee market and it kills me to pay 20% commission on my items when I do most of the work but being able to offer the best shipping rates for those who need white glove shipping services makes it worth it to me to keep listing.

I am still working my way through my lighting and want to check it over before I sell. I did list the entry light fixture the other day. It is such a unique piece! It was in use until we look it down. I will not be rewiring it unless anything looks sketchy. Kenny will check it for shorts with his meter. Find this piece at https://www.etsy.com/listing/494074972/mid-century-modern-4-teardrop-pendant
Such a stunning piece! Used on a pitched cathedral ceiling, but would work on a flat ceiling as well.
Used over a built in planter, I would guess this is one of the better fixtures you'd find for this purpose.
Def American made as there is a union label. Maker unknown. Super shape!
As you can see, it is a large fixture. The wires are encased in a brass rod so lengths are only slightly adjustable. The light on the left can come up higher to meet the bottom of the rod.
I will be working on catching up with those of you who expressed interest in the pole lamp and the plastic plant, so I can get them sent out or delivered. The plant has cement/plaster of Paris in the pot and it had been a super pain to break up! I want to finish that up this weekend and get it shipped. I also have 2 peeps interested in the pole light with the planter bullets that I'd like to go over next. We are up to our ears in basketball season and have games or practice most weeknights and over the weekend. Getting very weary of it and this should be over by the end of February, thank goodness!
I am also picking up the black Herman Miller rocker this Tuesday and will be getting it listed right away. Both rockers are available but I will be keeping the one that does not sell first so if you are considering adding one, now is the time to commit. Unless I stumble across another shell, I will not be getting any more.
The tension screen is at my booth space. I left it as is, the bottom panel is damaged. It can be removed or shortened, but figured I would let that up to the new owner. Added some other goodies this week too. Stop by WED-SUN 10-6 at Fleetwood Antique Mall 14129 Kutztown Rd, Fleetwood, PA. GRQ Used Furnishings is with us now so I can tell you there is lots to see! Great prices and a huge selection of every era you could want.
Please stop by all my shops for your Valentine's Day gifts! I am stocked with some great items! Thanks for your support! XO Malissa
