Happy Holidays!

I want to take a moment to wish you all a heartfelt Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our family to yours!  I have had one amazing year and surpassed my prior year sales by over $7,000. Thank you to all my clients and friends for your support.  

I pushed to get my latest restorations done knowing I was planning on pursuing some paying work come January and have settled on income tax.  Although I should only be working 15-20 hours a week, this job only goes until April 15th so I am going to try to pad my bank account while I can.  That said, I probably will not be buying much or restoring much for the first quarter.  It may take most of my efforts to keep up with sales and shipments plus the retail space. I will keep listing from my backstock and also will have the husband work through some lighting and small projects laying around.  My delivery availability will be limited as well but I will do my best to work with you.  I will not know my schedule more than 2 weeks out but it’s retail hours plus saturdays in the mix. Wish me luck.  I am not sure this was the most lucrative decision but it is more flexible than what I was finding and I figured ideally, this could get me through the rest of the year.....just not this first season which will be drepressing.

SHIPPING:  I just dropped off a piece with my shipper and they updated me on their plans. After the holidays they will be heading south to Florida then over to Texas (DALLAS) and back. If you are anywhere on 95 corridor to Florida or west towards Dallas from there and are considering a purchase, reach out now! I can get the shipping quoted and firmed up.  I will hold your item with a small deposit with balance plus shipping costs due prior to pick up in January. Scott and Jill are wonderful and have taken many things for me to far away places and because I book them directly and pay cash at pickup, they give me great rates!  I pack and wrap your item myself, just like when I ship on Greyhound, but with them, it never leaves their trailer and they are the only people handling it in transit.   Reach out with zip and what you are considering and we can figure things out! 

The Lane record cabinet is complete and listed.  I noticed I was not finished with it yet in my last update.

If you are in the region and need some quick furniture delivered for your holiday entertaining, reach out! I have time between now and Jan 5th that I can schedule deliveries!  

Thanks again for all your support, referrals and friendship!  I have the best clients! 💕 Now to try to quick catch up with my bookkeeping and make some cookies before Christmas!

New RESTORATIONS:  I just ordered fabric for the following restorations.  I will be proceeding with the work as my budget allows. My AS IS pricing is no longer active ONCE THE WORK STARTS.  I will run the numbers after I talk to the upholsterer, but I did score the fabric for an amazing price!  I work hard to get fabric cheap and keep my expenses low.  

This piece just needs covers for the existing cushions.  I think the work will be pretty reasonable. I picked this awesome palm print perfect for a Florida room or tiki lounge, just as this piece needs to be!  Estimated completed price $600-800.

I just picked this fabulous pair up last weekend. France and Son Danish teak arm chairs with a beautiful profile.  Design by Sigvard Bernadotte and sold by John Stuart Inc. All metal tags are present.  These will be getting a full rebuild. New strapping, foam and upholstery. I am buying both of the above colors and deciding when they get here.  If you love them, you can choose.  💕 These are high end Danish, collectible and sexy as hell.  Off the cuff, finished price will probably be $1500+/- for the pair.  One choice is more cream, the other is oatmeal.  I think they will both compliment the warm teak wood beautifully! 

Another view. Those swoopy arms though!  The wood is excellent and look at the joinery on the arms! Just need to ditch the upholstery and rebuild the structures.

The main event! So you remember I came home with the Ry Mobler Wall unit and Murphy bed in September.  I quickly proved it was indeed a Hans Wegner design. 🤘🏼💕 Then decided we would keep it for my lucky son.  We finally got around to swapping his room out!  Step one: Trent disassembled his IKEA bed. 

step 2 lots of Danish Oil to bring the old dry teak back to life.

Step 3 lots of heavy lifting.  We disassembled the bed from the cabinet which made it a lot better to get up our flight of stairs in the foyer.  It’s a bilevel so tight for turns.

We made Trent help! He did a fine job taking apart his old bed too.
