VINTAGE TREASURES BY THE TRUCK LOAD

This week we brought in 5 truckloads of vintage treasures. From a Brooklyn home we got some great love seats, lounge chairs, dressers, a antique vanity, Antique tube radio console, lamps, and more. The 85 year old gentleman told me an interesting story about his military history during world war 2. He told me that he was a radio operator on a small island in the English channel where he was stationed underground. It was a cave which had restricted access due to the tide. One day he and his crew almost died from the lack of oxygen due to the tide not retreating. I just thought I’d share this little story, because every home that I visit has a story and that is what I love about this business. I get to hear the history of the people and the items that they used during their lives.

Then we went to Greenpoint Brooklyn where we met a designer who was downsizing and we purchased a bunch of cool items.

Off I went to central park west where we got a bunch of distressed/shabby chic furniture, including 2 dressers, a vanity, art, room dividers, book shelves, chairs, stools, small tables,  lamps galore, and lots of small items.

Then it was back to Brooklyn again in Ditmas Park where we got a mid century modern dining table, mid century art deco dresser, antique stacking tables, mid century modern side tables, chairs, lamps, amazing antique wood trunks and a large leather trunk, a whole bunch of vintage clothing, pottery, lots of art including watercolors, hand colored etchings, oil paintings, tons of small vintage items and much more.

Today we will be bringing in a nice mid century bar cart and lots of other surprises.

Stay tuned for next weeks goodies, as we will be buying items from a hoarders house. This one looks promising as there appears to be lots of vintage items hidden under years of accumulations.

Our warehouse is fully loaded and we are making deals so we can bring in more stuff, so come on down and shop for great vintage at low prices.

WE ARE FULLY LOADED WITH GREAT MID CENTURY MODERN FURNITURE

Since we have been closed for our “vacation” – road trip, we have been filling our warehouse with great vintage finds. We started locally with an apartment in Brighton Beach Brooklyn. We were called to a one bedroom apartment not expecting much so we came with just the van. When I was greeted at the door my jaw dropped to the floor. It was mid-century heaven. Every piece of furniture was modern from the 1960’s. The grand-daughter explained to me how the furniture was acquired and it was very interesting. Her grandmother left Poland in 1963 and she wanted to move to the USA. When she was ready to leave they told her that she could not take cash with her only material items. So she took all her money and purchased the best furniture available at the time. She made sure to buy top of the line furniture including an identical desk that the president of Poland had in his office. Although these pieces of furniture do not have the makers mark on them, they are very high quality pieces I am sure they are designer.

I then told the woman to wait for me as I needed to get my box truck. We ended up filling the entire box truck with amazing pieces including that large mid century desk, gorgeous mid century burl wood couch sleeper combo, amazing burl wood bar cart, china cabinet, dressers, vanity, chairs, tables and more.

Then we were off to upstate New York on the hunt for more mid century pieces. that part of town is a desert for modern furniture. After many visits, we found only a few pieces. That didn’t deter us as we went on to New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and further. All along the way, we picked up cool pieces of furniture, lighting, mirrors and more. All the items are in the shop waiting for the grand reveal on Sunday October 15th when we reopen at 10am.

We also managed to purchase the contents of a surgical supply company which was in business since 1922 and we filled up the entire box truck with many unique items including many interesting medical bottles, glass syringes, industrial cabinets galore, butcher block work tables and much much more. These items with be unloaded next week. Keep posted on our instagram @reuseamericany for the latest on those items.

Meanwhile we are still on the road today wednesday picking up some great mid century modern dressers, a really nice wall divider and if we can fit a stunning retro Kroehler sectional couch.

PLEASE REMEMBER: WE WILL BE CLOSED TILL WE REOPEN SUNDAY OCTOBER 15th at 10am so all the goodies will be available then.

Looking forward to seeing you Sunday October 15th at our

vintage warehouse at 387 Bushwick Avenue Brooklyn.

This week we purchased the contents of the basement of a former locksmith. In addition to tons of locksmith items like key blanks, security devices, metal signs, locks, hardware, key cutting machine and more. He was also into working with polishing semi precious stones so we got a bunch of cool stone and polishing and tumbling machinery which was used to make his creations.

We also got a great wood Basset dining table and six chairs as well as other great mid century bedroom furniture.

Off we went to a brownstone in cobble Hill where we purchased some furniture that we usually dont buy, but we know we have customers out there that that like the solid wood furniture and dont love Mid century like we do. So we got regular vintage furniture for those folks.
