Elliot was busy this week picking in Brooklyn. Yes Brooklyn has some cool places to get some great old stuff. Many of our followers would love to go on a pick with us so we will give some lucky folks a chance in the future. Simply go to our facebook page @ReuseAmericaVintage and like us. You will also see daily updates of what we bring into our warehouse.
We were in the basement of an old tailor shop and we pulled out a nice commercial ironing table with a cast iron base from a factory, we think its from the 1940’s. Anyways it will make a great one of a kind bar to the lucky person who picks this up. We also got over 500 vintage ties brand new in the wrapper. Some are from designers like chistian dior and other famous ones. Many many more cool items came from this pick.
we were also fortunate to get a call from someone who was downsizing and we picked up some really cool mid century modern furniture. A table high corner table which is really sturdy. A pair of Knoll style wire stools. A pair of Valeigh Mid century modern side tables / coffee table which will make any room look fabulous.
We also picked up some great industrial pieces including a bunch of industrial tables and metal bases as well as 6 industrial lamps in great condition.
We got a call from a butcher company in the Bronx to go thru his warehouse before he closes his business. We didn’t get much from him though, but it was a learning experience. We got a stainless steel meat rack, meat hooks with sliders on them and an industrial coat rack which held the uniforms of the workers of the plant
Right before closed for the day today an old car collector came to visit the store and he said he had some cool things to sell us. I was sceptical at first and then he pulled out some random parts from his pickup truck. These 1930’s car parts are going to make someone really the talk of the town. We got this great flare fender which would make a unique coffee table as is, but we will be improving on it this coming week. We also got the dashboard with the old dials and the front windshield which our talented woodworker buck will be making into yet another great coffee table.
All in all we brought 4 overflowing cargo vans full of stuff into our warehouse. Lots of great items to get. Some pictures are posted below.
This week we will be picking up 4 tulip chairs and a tulip table plus much much more
