the big stuff




we got lots of big stuff this week....
another nice big OAK CHICAGO CABINET ,, we have about 4 of these right now, all a bit different...they were the butlers pantry, built into the wall in the little room between the kitchen and the dining room.... we get them in the rough, usually with no sides or crown molding and the amish make them into these beautiful pieces....they are all under 8 ft ....and around 5 or 6 ft wide.... i hate to think how many must get bulldozed when they tear down the old neighborhoods....1890 to 1910
,
BIG OAK BUFFET FROM ENGLAND , big wide and not real tall...i never know the ages of english furniture
and this HUGE OAK MIRROR..probably 1890 to 1910.. we get them from our chicago guy.....its all refinished by the amish and ready to go... its always fun to imagine its next home...a fabulous dress shop or in someones huge foyer...this thing is really the peak of the oak period.... full columns and fancy carving on top....under 8 ft tall...
we also got 4 other hall mirrors, in the rough..... i never know what jon will bring home.... but its usually big.... also new this week...more buffets, and 3 more big counters or islands....


BELLA CHIC MOVED.... my daughter in carmel moved their store....its just east of bubs breakfast and at the end of the monon trail ... http://www.bellachicinteriors.com/ if you get down to carmel , northern indianapolis, take a look....
the garden iron came thursday.... trikes, pot chairs, armillaries, towers, cute bird stuff, nice big trellises, a gothic arbor, hanging planters, shepherds hooks, gazing ball stands, gazing balls, cheaper this year.... and more ...and more on the way...

Anne - thanks for the mention. I see that you are engaging in your need for BIG furniture too. I love the pantries. Wish we could get more architectural salvage here on the Tundra. Good luck and Happy Spring!
