Back In The Day

There were a lot of homes in the area, especially our grandparents, that had very narrow stairways and tight corners to the second floor. This made it impossible to maneuver a large bedroom set up to those areas. And that is when it was hoisted to the second or even third floor through the window. Now you know why movers get big bucks.

OSHA Would Not Approve

Just look how the wires are being held up. What? Good old fashion Yankee ingenuity!

New Arrivals

Today three pieces came to us and they are yummy.! The corner cabinet and desk are the Habersham Plantation Furniture Company. These two pieces are a very warm and welcoming honey pine. Just in time for the holidays.

The beautiful Eastlake walnut Victorian settee is circa 1890-1900. We love this style for the more geometric and modest curves. It breaks away from the excessive high relief carvings of the Victorian era. This is a go anywhere piece in the home. Just charming!
