New Auction Window: Africa Modern

Whether you nab one or a few, these African masks are sure to start a conversation.  Representing countries from central Africa and the Congo to the Cote d'Ivoire, each one has a story to tell.

Just check out this Dogon granary door and the Baule medicine dog (below, center):

Pair the earthy textures with the clean lines of a slatted bench, a polished wooden bowl, or hand loomed rug (all up for auction).
Now ask yourself, what can a fetish do for you?

Bidding ends Tuesday, February 1 at 8pm.  Bids may be placed in person or by phone (212 871-0777) on the auction clipboard near the register.

Happy Bidding!

New Auction Window: Fur Luxe

An homage to the New Year, this auction window is chock full of slick and contemporary textures.  From the Danish mod nesting tables to the mink throw pillows, here's a style that screams bachelor...or glam bachelorette.  

Chrome fixtures like the woven metal basket, Italian tic-tac-toe game,  and vintage ladder back chair add to the swanky feel.

Look cultured with an art book collection (each sold separately) or handmade art pottery pieces.

Complete the look with a Dansk ice bucket or two and a very dapper penguin martini shaker.
 Let the fun and games begin!
Bidding ends at 8pm, Tuesday January 11.  Bids may be placed in person or by phone (212-871-0777) on the auction clipboard near the register.

Happy Bidding!

The First Post of the New Year

And decade!  What are we calling this one? The twenty teens?

Anywho, like most of you, we have a few resolutions up our sleeve.  The first and foremost being to get organized.  With the constant ebb and flow of  donations (thanks!), getting organized is a never ending process.  Last year we made huge strides in prepping the furniture side of our warehouse, and we'd like to continue that trend with our off-season clothing storage.  The best part is that by bringing ourselves into tip-top shape, we'll be able to offer you the best selection of on point and seasonable fashions throughout the coming year.

So if you notice the difference, let us know! We won't stop until we look like this.
