There are a few items that have just made it into the recently sold page.
Earlier this year we were fortunate to pick up a pair of barber shop chairs that were taken out of an old Chicago Barber Shop downtown. We sent these Bel-Aire chairs off to our trusty upholsterer where he did a great job. Red-orange material with silver studs around the back, these chairs look great! They were only on the floor for a few minutes when someone spotted ‘em and was able to take them home.
While we were freestylin’ early this summer, we came across a garage sale with a really cool table and chairs. The owner said her mother bought it because it had no corners and was child-safe. But, our truck was overflowing and we had leave this set behind.
We found this drawing at the flea market one sunday. I would’ve loved to take it home but my pockets were empty and the car was loaded with some other neat finds. It’s assumed this was a plan drawing for a building that didn’t end up being completed in downtown Chicago.
Also shown is some of our recent finds! We acquired some artist’s materials and equipment. Check out the rest in the recent acquisitions page.
