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.

Over 150,000 vintage items in our massive 6,000 sq foot warehouse

So be sure and check us out wednesday after 11am at 387 Bushwick Avenue and thursday 11am at our 1158 Flatbush avenue location.

So many interesting items keep coming in, You never know what you will find!

Each day, we go picking all over the city and upstate New York and we bring the items to our warehouses in Brooklyn. We purchased an estate in Boro Park on Monday and we worked 2 days bringing the items to our Bushwick location. A nice elderly couple is moving to Florida after living in the home for over 65 years. One can only imagine what a family gathers over the years and this house was packed with great finds.

Each room had treasures everywhere. Many items have been unseen for over 30 years, so it was like a new discovery for the homeowner as well. First we went into the basement, my personal favorite spot and we pulled out lots of small wood boxes from the tool room along with many other interesting small items. Every nook and cranny was filled with vintage treasures. From a box of old skeleton keys, to purple crystal door knobs, to old license plates, there were cool items everywhere.

We also found a first for us, a manual skeleton key making device in a nice wood cabinet… a real unique find. The homeowner told us that his grand father used to make skeleton keys as a side job in the 1800’s. Vintage garbage cans, handmade wood tool carrier, old work light, industrial lighting, old candle sconces, old paintings,  were also nice finds. The closets were filled with interesting finds as well. A nice set of pink Lucent plastic dish set, old canning equipment, milk glass and more were pulled out.

As we moved around the house we found a nice set of 3 teak and brass duck wall hangings. A bunch of vintage kodak cameras, old marbles, a portable bar kit in a box, old metal table top hair dryer, some cool enamelware, some interesting tins including one personal favorite (windsor glide powder for dance floors, a powder that you put on dance floors so you can do the 2 step with ease)

The best was yet to come, as we went up thru a winding staircase to a huge attic apartment. In it we found the groovy stuff. Mid century modern dressers, 4 mid century modern chairs by miller murphy, which my assistant thought was a partner of herman miller, which is not the case…but it was a cool find. We also got a well made george nelson slat bench in great condition and other nice small pieces.

Then we headed to the garage and found 3 great wood long benches, a antique cast iron coffee grinder, nice vintage wood ladder and a great bike shaped planter and much more.

There is still so much more stuff in that home, and the homeowner will be having us back in a few weeks to get more goodies.

Wednesday is going to be a busy day as we are going to be getting items from an apartment in the city and bar in Williamsburg. Keep posted to see all the great items that we will be bringing in.

Hope to see you

Some nice items just came in…. More to come today and friday.

Some people say that women like to go shopping…. Well I am a man and I love to shop everyday…for vintage that is.

I have been busy this week working my butt off the past 2 days in the rain. I have to tell you it is hard loading up the van in the rain. I usually like to overload the van with stuff attached to the top of the van, but I cant do that in the rain. Thank goodness the rain is gone, so I can load up today with lots of great stuff. Our bushwick location is packed with great items and today we will be loading up our thrift store located at 1158 flatbush avenue in ditmas park with lots of nice stuff. For those of you who havnt visited our thrift store recently, we have been reorganizing it and it is a much better shopping experience than it has been in the past. The hours for our flatbush avenue location is Sunday 12-7pm, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 11-7:30pm, Friday 11-4pm.
