The "Seventies"

What a turbulent time in history. Who can forget the great oil embargo, the Watergate scandal, the end of the Vietnam War, and disco! But the furniture! Bold fabric patterns, the colors brown, purple, orange, and yellow, shag-pile carpets, lacquered furniture, and lava lamps! The use of teak wood and paneling regained popularity. OUCH! So here is our cool couch and a Henredon walnut coffee table of the 1970"s.

New Arrivals

Heywood Wakefield

Celebrate our 1950's rattan bar. Every rumpus room and pool party entertained on a bar like this. I'm sure no shortage of cigarettes and booze. It is amazing to see a Heywood Wakefield set like this in such wonderful condition.

American of Martinsville

Two stunning pieces. The company was founded in 1906. It was vast by the end of the 1950's, and proudly offered furniture representing almost every broad design era. The vitrine is a limited edition. Only 300 were made and this is number 238.

Vernis Martin

This vitrine is nothing short of magnificent. We decided to give the vintage jewelry a grand display. I don't think we can part with it!

I Am Pretty

The vanity is from NYC and was given as a birthday present to a lucky 15 year old in the 1960's. I was told the painting of the floral design was done by a French artist!

Tiger Oak Desk

This turn of the century piece is showing a little Eastlake flavor.

Pennsylvania House Cherry

My fave. This piece would be good for the guest room or a boy to young man.

On Saturday, we had the distinct pleasure of conducting this tag sale brought to you by Diana Getz of The Hitching Post Antiques and yours truly Mary Homza of Home Again. This was a well appointed home. Very traditional. An English feel. Every wall in each room had an equestrian feel. All furniture in every single room was cherry Pennsylvania House. My love! Beautiful sets of china, silver, and crystal. It was just impossible to show everything. I am telling you the buyers were taking the nails out of the walls! Despite the horrible weather, the lines were long. It was over the top! Can't wait for the next sale.

Ode To Spring

This past weekend we were celebrating the Bloomsburg Antique Show and Sale. There was so much energy going on! People had enough of winter and wanted to spend. And spend they did.

Miss Marilyn

New Kid On The Block

This is the first show for Ochman Coins and Jewelry. In Dallas, Pa. the family run business has been doing this for at least fifty years that I know of. They made a major buzz! Look for them at the Christmas show.
A good time was had by all. See you all for the Christmas show in November.

Happy Birthday Nucleus

A year ago Dan McGrogan opened the first raw food, smoothie and juice cafe in the area at 63 Main Street, Luzerne. Within three months he had to expand his operation not to mention the menu. Today you could not get near the place! It was standing room only. This area has a long history of bad health habits and disease. But seeing his business growing so fast, it is apparent that a lot of people get it. It was wonderful talking to complete strangers and sharing their stories of a raw food and vegan lifestyle. So Dan, three cheers to you and your great staff. Many more years.
This guy was very soothing.
A free neck and back massage.
Dan making his grapefruit, blood orange and lemon juice.
Glowing green smoothies were given out free all day!
Dan and staff could barely keep up with the demand.

A Good Time Was Had By All

New Arrivals

The Federal Period. Our new-born nation selects the eagle for its emblem which spreads its wings over furniture, together with classical motifs from abroad that echoed the splendors of Greece and Rome. Woods most used were: mahogany, cherry, maple, and fruit woods in less splendid furniture. Curly maple often replaced satinwood used in European models. After 1800 rosewood was used for more costly pieces. Our very pleasing chest is from the 1840's and made of mahogany.
