Inventory Update

Moving into the New Year I see the vintage business morphing into something...not sure what, but who wants to label anything, or set limitations?
American of Martinsville Triple Dresser set available here through 1.4.13
The warehouse is messy now, but about once a month we clean it up and make it a relatively enjoyable place to shop and peruse.

Here are a few shots of the warehouse that include items that are still available for purchase. You're always invited to visit the 'for sale' album for more of our available furniture options, and Gremlina.com for an eclectic variety of vintage home, fashion and furnishings.
 Record Player Console--working with original instructions and audio input for iPod playing
 broyhill style credenza or dresser, matching midcentury pottery lamps, ship art...
 clothing, farmhouse style table, hoosier, boots, gowns...
Metal Based Tulip table with oval top--desk or dining table. 
silver detailed metal top aviator steampunk style credenza.

How that became this: The tale of a vintage sofa who wanted to be loved once more.

So, for some of us it's difficult to have the vision of re-finishing. For some of us it's not. Let's sit back and let one piece of furniture inspire us all. (thanks to my sweet customer who had the notion to face lift this guy, and a few others as well).
note the lines. and the tufting. the bones are really good.
and after! changes:
-new upholstery (obviously)
-no legs
-one cushion along bottom
-beautiful new welting that reinforces the great shape. 
amazing. This piece is a great example of how you can get a fantastic custom piece from a well built piece of furniture that has years of life left. the price? well, a fraction of what you'd get for a similar quality new custom sofa.

Hoosier Refinishing

I've got my crack-team all set and moving on the refinishing of this new piece. Will be $1500 when completed--catch us quickly and have it custom refinished to fit your style.
ah if only this guy would fit in my space. alas--i must simply play a part in its finding of a great home. can you imagine the years of joy that comes with this? the pies that have cooled on those wire racks? the flour sifted? emmmm. old furniture is WAY better than new--imho. ;-)
