products

18th century to 1920s, gustavian to early americana, folk art, taxidermy, pieces you have never seen before, astier de villatte, belgian design books, and check out the stainless steel lobsters.

clientele

decorators and dealers looking for the unusual. some big celebs but they won't tell. locals who will take a risk. people trying to steal ideas. everyone inbetween.

service

looks like a 'don't touch' place but just the opposite. only the owners work there. they take on a few decorating projects every year but are very selective.

interior

cement floors, high ceilings. expanding in november to take over the shop next door.

ambience

>> sublime, forward, romantic, ecclectic, eccentric <<

sublimely edited antique shop. owners have a fierce talent for juxtaposing objects from vastly different time periods and styles. no attitude. nothing ostentatious.
