This past week we got called to some interesting homes and got lots of interesting items. We were informed of a building that was being torn down and we had 2 hours to remove the items that we were interested in. The pressure was crazy, but we were able to pull out some really great items. A 1940’s motorized schwinn bike, light up advertising clock from Armstrong flooring, lots of unique metal signs and so much more. We also purchased a bunch of mid century modern furniture from 2 estates in long island and we purchased over 20 mirrors from a mirror hoarder in the Bronx. This person had a huge home with 7 horse stalls which were converted to garages and they were packed with stuff. As we dug deeper we found 4 saarinen chairs and a matching table. The other items were not interesting enough for us but the mirrors and the table set were great finds.
Then we were off to a hoarder home in Brooklyn where there were hundreds of banana boxes full of stuff nicely organized and labeled. We filled the truck up with lots of vintage dolls, old toys, lots of vintage radios,
advertising, some vintage clothing, tools, and the coolest wrigley gum store displays and some tic tac displays.
We also purchased over 40 cool bar stools and vintage wood folding theater seats from a bar that closed down in williamsburg.
We are off to a home in Greenpoint this morning, so who knows what we will be finding there.
We go searching for great stuff every day. You never know what we will find. One thing is for sure, we are always bringing in new items each and every day. To keep on top of the latest discoveries, please check our instagram @reuseamericany.
