"The provider took all the materials for sale and either auctioned them or took them to local providers to sell. She then brought me back about 12,000 after all was" said and done. This is after her 30% . She does have a minimum but I don't remember what the minimum payout was at this time. She is very knowledgeable and professional.

"He was wonderful. I stopped into his shop for the chair repair. I had to have it done in a certain time frame and he was able to squeeze me in and have it back before" we thought it would be done. It was absolutely perfect and we had no issues.

Antiques

Antique collecting is one of the most popular leisure activities in the United States. Due to their intrinsic value, antiquated items are either collected for investment and profit-making purposes or as display pieces, prized as heirlooms.

A key to enjoy your art or antique collecting hobby is to find items that excite you as opposed to collecting for strictly financial upside, says Buxton. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Carol V. of Orlando, Fla.)

Hi, benterrific. 

Keep checking around at the auction houses and antique dealers. There are a few in your area that are highly rated. The bigger auction houses should have qualified appraisers. You might also check with your local art museum or fine art gallery. Just like we recommend for big home repair projects, shop around to get the best price.

I found out the hard way in the military that it depends on the product. Some silver polishes will turn brass and copper black with instant tarnish and etch them, so check the label. Some types can be used for any soft metal, some not. I suspect it depends on the pH of the product, or whether it has aommonia in it. And of course if you do decide to try it, do the center bottom (where it sits on the table) first so you can see if it is causing problems.

 

Brasso is probably the top name in the industry - they make both liquid and treated cloth polishing products both for specific metals, and general polishing ones.

I would ask local antique shops and art stores (ones selling art and frames, not galleries) if they repair antiques, AND for references, so the repair does not decrease its value unecessarily. In many cases the old frame is worth more than the painting !
 
 
You could also ask local art museums who they use to repair/rehab frames, if they do not do it themselves.

It was great. They did a good job. We are going to them have restore a phonograph in the future. They knew what they were talking about. They were honest and upfront.

did a wonderful job with helping us with window treatments and transforming our house. We got several quotes for shutters and choose to go with
Smithfield Antique Dealers Provider Name Locked
because she had the best price for locally made wood shutters and we liked her punctuality and follow up she provided at every step. Shutters took about four weeks to get made and they looked great. At the installation she mentioned about her interior design services and offered to schedule a complimentary consultation to improve our living and dining rooms. We have never worked with a designer before and were not ready to work on the rest of the space at that time, but promised to touch base with her closer to the Holidays. We contacted her again in October and scheduled the design consultation for Saturday morning when both of us were home. Since she had already seen our space she had a lot of great ideas: repainting both rooms, adding accessories, new rug and reupholstering the dining room cushions.

took some pictures and asked questions about the look we wanted to create. We really didn't know how to answer that question since all we cared about was updated and inviting space for our friends. She showed us some images of different styles and we settled on more "transitional" style. On our next appointment she presented the paint colors for both rooms and images of lamps, rugs, artwork, fabric for the chairs. I loved the rug she presented, everything looked very nice and was within our budget. Ordering process was easy and fast, we painted our rooms while waiting for accessories to arrive. Chairs were reupholstered by the workroom

uses for her projects. Overall the experience was very pleasant and both projects went without any hiccups. We love our living and dining rooms, our friends were impressed by the transformation too. Both rooms look inviting, comfortable and complete.

Wow, wow, wow! This company is the best! The chairs are beautifully sewn and the patterns perfectly centered and the chairs are meticulously matched. I can't believe the precision and the workmanship. The work was completed two weeks ahead of the estimate. What company does that? Check these people out when you need something reupholstered. They completely reworked the batting, the straps, the lining underneath, and even restained the legs.

We had a

We stopped into

to look at the antiques and to pick up some craft micro sodas. They have over 60,000 bottles on the premises and have the best selection of craft microsodas in the area. Great service and a fun place.

When ordering items, a customer can choose to pay in full or choose installment payments to the credit card provided (American Express, in my case). I received an order number and the list items, with the cost of each item.
I received email notification that the first item shipped. Then another email saying the second item had shipped. Then yesterday, I received two letters from the company, both dated 11
Smithfield Antique Dealers Provider Name Locked
2014, saying that because I had not ordered from them before, and they had no history with me, I would need to pay for the third item upfront before they would ship it. No mention was made of items 4,5, or 6.
I called them today. They informed me that I had a credit limit (even though I was paying with my A.E., and that it is their policy to require payment in full prior to shipping for some items in the order.
My complaint is that they never informed me of this when I placed the order, which was for Christmas presents. There is nothing on my order form that states they will review my order and might possibly not approve installment payments for all. Basically, their order confirmation says one thing; their customer service says another. This is not a good way to do business.
I cancelled the entire order, as I do not like to do business with a company that is not forthcoming with its policies. The supervisor I spoke with,
Smithfield Antique Dealers Provider Name Locked
, informed me that they would refund the amount already charged for the two items that have already shipped once they had proof of the return, since, as he put it, I might "claim they were lost."
Purchase policies should be made clear at the time of the order. They did not do this. I would not purchase from this company again because I do not believe they follow through with what they say during the order process or order confirmation. This is especially irritating during the holiday season.

I've patronized them for some time, and they're very good. They're kind and knowledgeable. Their prices can be shockingly reasonable, sometimes even better than online pricing.
