Some Markdowns

The shoppe’s reducing the price on some of the resident furniture that’s been with us awhile.  Ali posted photos, prices and dimensions earlier this week and several sold already yesterday and today.  Several left, though, and Cottage Home would like to move them as several items wait in the wings to come over.

A late 1920s china cabinet finished in ASCP French linen.  Beautiful condition with a full glass door.  These old cabinets are being used in larger halls and bathrooms for linen storage, as well as their traditional role.  We have another that will be finished soon in a lighter color and slightly different style, but from the same timeperiod.

This vintage French chest of drawers came in on Thursday and left today.  Priced at $325, it featured nice storage, short saber legs and a bowed serpentine front.

This is an old cottage style dresser with its original mirror and frame.  This style dates to the Civil War era and this one may well be that old.  Gloria finished it in a moderately distressed ASCP Duck Egg which is a mix of blues and grays.  Lighting and shadows work the color well and this style would look nice in that seashore bedroom.  Its priced at $320 and nicely sized at 37+” wide and 20″ deep.

These are the last of the reproduction Olde English jelly cabinets at the shoppe.  Dimensions are the same at close to 6′ high, 30″ or so wide and 17″ deep.  One is finished in Paris Gray, the other in Olde White.  Both have been reduced in price.

An 1890s Victorian style oval hall table with beautiful detailing.  You can see the small center finial in the second photo.  Queen Ann edging and Jacobean style.

The shoppe has a wide variety of nice vintage occasional tables of varying style and era.  The small round Sheraton drum table is a 1920s piece; a reproduction window cabinet in white; a 1950s lamp table in Duck Egg blue/gray; and a great French styled tea table.  The store prices all of these at very good levels and they fit in the back of the car.  We try and pick these smaller tables up whenever possible as we can’t keep them in the store.

One of our oldest residents and  a mystery to me, this vintage dresser is a high quality build, but can’t seem to find a home.  Marked down to $320, it has lots of storage in its three oversize drawers, a serpentine double bow front, light Jacobean style legs and fluted mirror mounts.  This won’t fit in the back seat of your car, though.

A nice metal waiter’s tray with stand.

We had a pair of these converted nightstands, but they have sold.  They were originally part of an vintage drop front vanity, but serve their new role well, particularly in rooms where space is a consideration.  These were finished in ASCP Coco and sold for $120 each.

Some nice garden and outdoor pieces.  Gloria spent some time putting these together.  The metal garden bench is a nice item and aboiut 4′ long.  Well, that’s all this evening.  Working on a nice Jacobean style raised buffet/sideboard for next week.  Rain’s here, time to close those windows.  Remember the car!
