About Us

   Welcome friends to a brief synopsis of what we are all about .......this is "Our Dream" to own an antique store.

   We became interested in antique furniture about 25 years ago, when I made my first purchase which was an antique clawfooted oak table which I still own today. That purchase started us on this journey to learn as much as we could about antique furniture. We fell in love with the grain of hundred year old oak furniture, and the craftsmanship found in the construction, and mostly that it was still in useable condition 100 years after it was made. What a warranty!!

   We have gone in and out of antique malls and shops for years, and decided what we liked about some, and disliked about others. We have been selling antiques for 16 years, but have had our own business for the last 14 years. My husband discovered that he got great pleasure in restoring a great old piece of furniture that had been mistreated. We believe that our customers want to see quality antique furniture, and unique antiques that you just dont see everywhere.

   Our store is displayed and decorated in a manner which is friendly and pleasant. You will find lots of greenery throughout the store, china on the dining room tables, beds set up with quilts and pillows like they would be in your own home. Our store cat "Bear" will be here to greet you and your children. "Bear" is quite the show off and loves to dress in a Santa hat for Christmas, or as a spider at Halloween .

   Our business focus is on antique American furniture, vintage fireplace mantels, and pier mirrors, but you will also find glassware, vintage collectibles, old prints, and costume jewelry. Our inventory includes Turn of the Century Golden Oak, Victorian walnut and cherry, Depression furniture, country primitives, and mahogany when available. We accept quality consignments from private people when space is available. Let us know what you are searching for and we will try to find it for you.

   We are now offering customers our quality stripping and refinishing services. We can provide furniture repairs, replace carving that is cracked off, veneering, chair caning, glass and mirror replacement. We make fair offers on estate purchases...call us if you have furniture, or other items for sale.

   We are located about 70 miles SW from Chicago on Interstate 55 at the Reed Road exit #233 in Braidwood, Illinois. We offer a 30 day layaway, credit cards, financing is also available, reasonable delivery rate to the entire Chicagoland area. There are other shops nearby in Wilmington and Morris, so you can spend a day in the country.
