Despite some record-breaking levels of discomfort during the past months, we’re sad to see summer going. We’ve shared our home and grounds with many varieties of birds, bunnies, and other wildlife, spent many challenging and rewarding days in our workshop, repairing and restoring furniture recently arrived from England, and enjoyed a few delightful day trips. This newsletter contains pictures taken on one of these trips. Our August sale was very successful, and several pieces of furniture are currently on their way to destinations throughout the eastern half of the country.
We’re leaving soon for a week of buying in our beloved England and a week of vacation in an apartment in a 16th-century stone building in Oltrarno, in the historic center of Florence. We plan to visit some of our favorite places in Florence, and we’ll take lots of pictures to share on our return.
Once we're back, we’ll have a few weeks to put the finishing touches on our booth for the Fall Fox Valley Antiques Show. Although this next iteration of the show will still be online only, it will differ from those of the past two years in that it will take place in the middle of the week, rather than on the weekend. You’ll find details about Fox Valley just below.
Although we’ve just received a major shipment of new stock from England, it isn’t yet ready for viewing. Our next new listings will go online in the Fox Valley show in October.
