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.

Vintage Variety is what we have… Something for everyone

When we go hunting for fresh vintage finds, we are always on the lookout for unique items. While we are always looking for mid century modern furniture, we are also looking for unique items that appeal to a broad spectrum of clients. This week was no exception, we went upstate New York scouring for different items. We managed to find lots of cool items and they are in the shop right now.

We got in a pair of vintage wood canoe paddles, a nice old bird cage, a postage stamp vending machine, A Shure studio microphone, some farm devices, even a 1920’s embossed one way street sign in mint condition. The homeowner had that sign tucked away in the attic and told me how he and his friends got it years ago and hid it from his parents. He even sold me his stash of 25 crystal glass doorknobs he had in the basement.

On our way back to Brooklyn, we stopped into a nice home in New Jersey and we scored some great mid century pieces. We got a nice 2 piece danish modern walnut couch set in great condition and a super 2 piece walnut danish lounge chair set. The lounge set sold minutes after we posted the pictures on instagram, sorry folks. If you want to get first crack at the latest and greatest, then you should follow us on instagram @reuseamericany.

More Mid Century Modern Gems?

We spend 5 days a week buying items for our vintage warehouse in Bushwick. We travel all over the place and we never know what we will find from one house to the next. A nice elderly woman in Staten Island called us to tell us she was moving and needed to sell most of her items as she was moving into an apartment from a large home. When we went in, we were disappointed as most of the furniture was not what we sell. As we were about to leave I asked if there was anything in the basement of the house. All I can say was WOW when we went down the stairs.

There was a stunning Mid century modern bright red electric fireplace from the 1960’s,  also a real nice mid century floor lamp, a stunning mid century modern Basset desk/dresser combo, a mid century cane rocking chair, some art and a bunch of smalls.

Then we traveled to a loft in Chelsea in Manhattan, where a lovely model was leaving New York to California and couldn’t take it all with her so we purchased a really nice heavy duty Mid century modern long dresser and 2 side tables made in Denmark. We also purchased a Danish modern stunning desk in great condition, 2 great wrought iron garment racks and also  10 really nice leather chairs made in Italy which are really different as they can be put together to make a bench or love seat.

We also got some awesome multi panel window panes from a home being renovated in Brooklyn. We actually spent the entire day removing the windows ourselves to make sure they didnt get ruined. We also purchased a heavy vintage french door with heavy leaded beveled glass.

We also got a call from a restaurant which was closing down. We purchased a bunch of cool convertible butcher block tables which go from square to round with ease. You have to see them in person to appreciate them, they have nice cast iron

too. Looking for affordable butcher block table tops, we just got in a bunch for your next table project. We have a bunch of different industrial bases to place your wood on top of so come check out our large industrial section with lots of options. we also purchased 3 large industrial cast iron antique vent grates which would make great coffee table tops.

We like being busy running around looking for great vintage furniture. If you know someone moving or selling their furniture, please give them our contact information. We purchase estates, partial estates and individual pieces of furniture, so please keep us in mind.
