Fresh from a pick!

I had a lot of time off this week for spring break, and I was thrilled to go on a pick with Frank and get some great stuff!  It was fun to have the extra time and be able to take my camera with me this time instead of just my phone.  It always amazes me how much beautiful furniture is out there waiting to be rescued and given new life.  There is always something beautiful hiding at the back of a garage, or basement.  We love to hear from you too, tell us what you are looking for and we can put it on our list when we go out on the hunt! 

Frank does a great job of really looking over the furniture and picking out the best pieces!  Sometimes something looks great, but when you get up close there are a lot of flaws that are difficult to fix.  We want to offer you the BEST we can find. 
Look at all that furniture! :)

The worst words you can hear when you are out hunting furniture, is "that's not for sale."  Even though we got a lot of fabulous pieces, there were several items on this hunt that I really wanted!  This door is the perfect example of what I am talking about... it was gorgeous...old and full of character!  I think I asked at least 6 times how I could get my hands on them...I also left my number with them just in case :)

This gorgeous buffet was just hanging out in the garage for a long time, just waiting for someone to come and rescue it!  This was probably the centerpiece of someones dining room.

When we are out and about we come across all kind of things, and not all of them are vintage.  We like to bring anything to the shop we think our customers would love.  These kitchen benches are perfect for the eat in kitchen, they have storage under the seat.  They are unfinished right now, we know a lot of our customers are creative and like to put their own touches on pieces.  We could also paint them for you to match your space.  There are four of these lovely seats!
Unfinished - $120
Finished - $150 

On this trip we picked up three new desks!  They are all solid wood, two shabby chic white ones and an oak desk with leather on top.  Here is one of the white ones, photos of the other desks will be coming soon!

 Just in time for spring, there are two of these lovely metal garden tables! 

We really loved this chair!  The grey metal is could look fabulous up against a teal or apple green! Perfect height for the kitchen counter!

  If you are looking for that one of a kind piece to add to your home, please stop by our store and take a look! If we don't have exactly what you need, we would be glad to take down your name, number and search for you!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
