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.

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.
