Incoming! Franciscan Starburst alert, misc collectibles, Barbie and some great furniture on the way.

I have taken on a large amount of consignment items from dear friends who are downsizing into their dream condo.  Of course my goal is to help them get as much as they can for their awesome collections, but there is much work ahead in going through and listing.  That said, you will want to stay tuned to my Instagram or Facebook pages for hot off the press listings.  At any time I welcome you to contact me and if I can sell it to you before I list or even off Etsy, it will save you!  Local and regional peeps who can drive to pick up can save too.  I am bundling things so make me a list let’s negotiate!  I am currently adding Franciscan Starburst China to my Etsy.  Some have issues and I am noting all of that.  Read carefully and reach out if you need more info or pics.  This will take me some time to get through and we will be out of town this weekend.  I am trying to take little steps.  If by chance you know of a hardcore Barbie collector or dealer, please send them my info.  There are some fabulous collectible editions in this lot.  I would love to have someone hand pick so I can get it more manageable.  Most are new in original boxes and if removed were display only.  There are accessories as well.  So much! 

Wednesday I am returning for some furniture items.  Hoping my car can fit it all!  Here’s an idea of what is coming.

There are 3 of these awesome Bertoia barstools.  They were special ordered and shipped from Italy with seat cushions.   Would like to keep the set together.

Stay tuned to my social media as I work my way through these awesome collections. I am always willing to ascertain bulk deals. There are some really cool Barbies in this lot!  Limited runs, collectors editions, designers and so much more.  Generally speaking they were never removed from the boxes, a few may have been displayed.  Wait until I start digging in! Seriously good stuff.  

Joan is here waiting for you!  Is there more from this series?  I have no clue! When I start on the Barbies I will be posting in social media.  I would say that these are probably headed to eBay.

Enough temptation for now.  Can’t wait to show you more!  

Help me re-home this great stuff!  My consignment endeavor will help my friends empty their home of valuable items that just won’t fit their new space. They have deliberated on what stays and what needs to go and now here I am, handling the details.   Collectors helping collectors, keeping this stuff in your own community of enthusiasts.  It’s a win for everyone!  I hope to get involved in helping others do the same as time goes on. I can use my expertise to help you get more money for your stuff than an auction house, yard sale or other quick unload option.  

Stay tuned! XO Malissa 

these are all live on Etsy plus a coffee pot.  Much more to come!

New Video, Eames Dopp Kits online, anyone in Brooklyn want a delivery?

NO SLEEP ‘TILL..........BROOKLYN!

First off, I am headed to the Red Hook area of Brooklyn (via Staten Island)  to deliver some custom recovered dining chairs.  If you are in the nearby neighborhoods and find something you love in my stash, please reach out! *rescheduled until approx March 15. 

DOPP KITS ARE ALL HERE!  I have shipped out (almost all) of my preorders and have set up listings on my web page.   Come and grab them while I got them!  Make great gifts and got an mcm wedding??? Hello groomsmen gifts! 🎩

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

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.
