HGTV's "The High Low Project" Films at Vintage Thrift

Keep your eyes peeled this month for a Vintage Thrift cameo appearance on HGTV's newest show,  "The High Low Project." The crew filmed inside the store for an (unnamed) September episode earlier this summer.

In the show, designer Sabrina Soto works with a pair of homeowners to create their dream roombut there's a catch. After revealing the fantasy room, Soto then replicates the look on the couple's budget. Some high-end pieces will get to stay, but many will have to be replaced. Will the homeowners love their high/low look as much as the first?

If luxury on  a budget is the goal, then certainly they came to the right place!

New Auction Window: Stick with Tradition

Why mess with tradition when it looks this good? That's the attitude our display artist, Paulo, took when designing this classic style sitting room. Anchoring the display are a rich mahogany corner cabinet, 11 yards of beautiful printed fabric, and a wooden-frame looking glass

Enjoy a spot of tea and a hefty piece of literature (Dickens, perhaps?) in this damask covered arm chair.

 The porcelain Gibson Girl busts by Colln Meissen (as is), gilded candle holders, and brass and cut crystal lamp finish off this formal affair.

Auction ends Tuesday, September 13 at 8pm. Bids may be placed in person or by phone (212-871-0777) on the auction clipboard near the register.

Happy Bidding!
