Luck Has (um…HAD) It!
Ah, success! At least, a modicum of it…!
The first pieces of the “As Luck Would Have It” inventory offered at the Home Store in Manassas Virginia have been purchased! Yes, Dear Readers, after all the collecting, all the hunting (and all the loading and storing), this Furniture Addict has sacrificed a few of his treasures in the name of commerce (actually, I prefer to consider it as “spreading the joy – for fun and profit”).
Behold, the first babies to leave the nest (and by ‘nest’ I mean ‘storage unit’) during Home Store’s inaugural week….The most fab iron-and-glass chandelier (complete with ruched black velvet cord cover) pictured with the restyled white tiger chair was the first-of-the-first. Later in the week, the ornate gold frame also seen here was claimed by some fortunate shopper.
Then, this pair of Victorian cameo-back chairs with flawless gold-and-black striped velvet covering found their way to a new home. (And, can you believe it, ALL of these pieces were discovered by moi on Washington DC’s Capitol Hill?!)
Like any collector, I can only hope that my former treasures have found their way into the hearts of other like-minded furniture fanciers, who will behold them with the same affinity as I. Adieu, my darlings, and bonne chance!
