Antique Restoration or Contemporary Antiques

Quirks By Annie's Antique Restoration or Contemporary Antiques
My Current Favorite "Contemporary Antique"
from Quirks By Annie

This is a new venture that Quirks By Annie is undertaking. There are always some fantastic deals on some really awesome antique and vintage furniture at the Auctions and Estate Sales that Ethan attends, however, more often than not, they just are PERFECT. So, he has been passing up on them until recently. Now, even though a piece has some imperfections it still has a place in this world. Sometimes he has been able to restore to original condition, which is always exciting. But my personal favorites are those pieces that are just beyond reasonable restoration. These have become fun, funky, absolutely wonderful "Contemporary Antiques". The link above and this link show a very small glimpse into this new endeavor, but there will be more to come. Most are for sale, so if you see something that makes your heart go pitter-patter then hurry and send me a message. This is the very first day that we have shared these with the outside world, and they are already being stalked. We have lots of other pieces in the works, and some more that are nearing the finish line. So don't get caught later saying "Dang, that was PERFECT for my vanity! Why did I hesitate?", rather be a "WINNER", like Charlie Sheen...Winning!!! hahaha jk on that last part. Love to you all. Post again soon. ♥
