High End Consignment?

Braved the storm today- wasn't that much {not yet anyway} to visit a local favorite store, Boston consignment.  There are some great finds to be had here.  This isn't your typical "consignment store".  If you are looking for high end furniture or unique treasures to add to your decor than this is the place for you.  Some pieces were once loved in a Park Avenue apartment, a Wellesley tudor, or a Greenwich mega-home.  Baker, Kittinger, Eldred Wheeler, Tiffany China and some 18th century European antiques are in place to view and purchase.  There are over 500 consignors from Beacon Hill, Park Avenue,  to Newport...people who are downsizing.  I snapped some pictures of treasures that caught my eye.  Unfortunately, today wasn't my day to buy!

I just loved this portrait.  I am drawn to antique images like this one.  I love that time period!  I may have to go back for this one!

I thought this was a cute table.  Really bright gold, but unique.
Cute chairs purchased in France.

This is a great shell chandelier.  If I had a place on the Cape or Martha's Vineyard I would definitely put this in my house.  {Still dreaming of that second home}

Every wall is covered with unique art.

Bust are back or did they ever leave?

Another cute antique cane chair.  Set of six for your dinning room.

Looking for a lamp?

This consignment shop is a pleasure to shop in.  I really should keep it all to my self!  It is chuck full of treasures!

Glad to be back home...storm is starting to kick in here.
