What can I do for you?

Many wonderful homes are decorated with mass-produced poorly-made disposable furnishings that are boring, that tell no stories, that don't excite.  Why settle for that?  I will guide you to authentic, soulful, historic pieces that are a joy to come home to and will set your home apart.   And if you already love antiques, I can help lead your collection from good to better to BEST.   The proof:  I have shipped hundreds of unique, historic, attention-grabbing pieces to homes in almost every state.  Check out my example sales page.  If those pieces are exciting to you, we are meant for each other.


Some Feedback:

From a legend:  "We are very much out of it these days but I just wanted to say how I enjoy getting your email because I’m reassured someone (you!) is carrying on with exciting objects and integrity."

"you have great taste.  Most of our very best pieces we got from you".

".....unsurpassed in ethics, professionalism, and integrity".

"we can't wait to add the next piece that you find for us"

"we have the lights out, except for an art light on the painting.  We are sitting here with glasses of wine, just looking at it, and we are so happy that we bought it!"

"the amount of time and effort you put into each piece shows"

"we would like you to help us build a college fund for our grandkids"

I Seek to Acquire the Best of
American Antiques and Folk Art!

If you are considering parting with Americana similar to the quality, condition, and period of those that I offer, please contact me. I am always interested in acquiring new material either by outright purchase or to broker.

Policies

Returns
(I seldom have a piece returned, but just in case.....)

A retail buyer may return a non-layaway piece for full refund if I have been contacted within three days of the purchaser receiving it. After this three day period, all sales are final.

Refunds are given after the piece has been examined by me to be in the same condition in which it was sold. I do not pay the cost of shipping a piece back to me, unless the cause of return was that my description was found to be meaningfully inaccurate.

A purchase from another dealer (who is purchasing a piece for resale) is only returnable if I made a meaningful error in my description.

Layaway

Many of my customers purchase pieces over time.  Almost always that will be fine and welcome... 
....All layaway payments are NON-REFUNDABLE. I do not ship a piece until payment has been made IN FULL.

My Photographs and Descriptions

My photographs are owned by me.  I typically invest 4 to 6 hours in the imaging of each piece posted.  These images are not to be used for any reason unless approval is first given by me.
