About UsI have managed, been part of a co-op, been a partner in, or owned a brick and mortar store for the past 23 years. Until recently I regularly attended antique shows such as Baltimore, Houston, Miami, NYC plus many others. I have a passion for quality antique decorative items and I tend to gravitate towards good glass, porcelains, and anything that is a great example of a style or period in time. When you look at something and state...."Now that is Art Nouveau!"....that is what I am aspiring to find.
I majored in European porcelains and glasses, with a minor in Japanese and American decorative arts. I have helped local auction houses identify unknown pieces of glass and am particularly good with decorative arts in general, but realize more and more how much there is to know.
I often buy an item just because I like it, and learn about it later. I was taught to buy what I like, and not to rely on books....although I definitely say books now help in identifying and I have a rather impressive library of reference materials with books mostly dealing with higher end porcelain and glasses. I tend to gravitate towards finer decorative items although I like "fun" stuff too. I like everything from Japanese to Jugendstil/Secessionist to Victorian to Empire era items....they are almost always hand made.
I still love the traveling to find our inventory....
Any recommendations are greatly appreciated! I get my best suggestions from you! Hopefully I have something that catches your fancy or imagination....thank you for looking and reading and I look forward to serving you.
I prefer plain old checks, then for speed VENMO and ZELLE, or money orders and wire transfers(I also accept WISE), and lastly Paypal. Layaways are great and I am flexible, but these are by cash/check/venmo/zelle 99% of the time.
Also, since it seems everyone loves a deal, prices if negotiated are on a cash(check)/venmo/zelle price basis. We have no sales taxes that effect direct transactions in New Hampshire. Let me also just say that I guarantee everything I sell. Any item may be returned without reason for 3 days after receiving your purchase(except layaways). Anything else? Just ask or call!
