With roots in Connecticut and a home now in central Illinois, we exhibit
at nearly twenty shows each year throughout New England and the
Midwest.  This gives us the opportunity to stay in personal contact with
as many of our clients as possible.

Our web site allows us to feature recently acquired pieces and be
responsive 24/7 to collectors and clients across the country who 
have questions, special requests, or items they'd like to sell.  We're
always interested in purchasing distinctive, high quality pieces.

Since 1990 we've pursued the rare, the unusual and the whimsical.
We specialize in functional folk art and in 17th, 18th, and early 19th
century antiques of authentic and unaltered character, each
thoughtfully chosen and thoroughly researched.  The standards we use
in selecting pieces for our clients are those we use in selecting pieces
for ourselves.

We guarantee that every piece will be as represented as to age,  authenticity and condition. And we make every effort to illustrate in 
our photos and reflect in in our descriptions any details of condition  
beyond appropriate wear from age and use.  In the unlikely event a piece has significant problems we've missed, let us know within two days of receipt and we'll do our best to resolve the issue.  Payment checks should include both purchase price and estimated shipping cost.

Where possible, we pack and ship purchased pieces ourselves to keep
costs minimal.  Where circumstances make that impractical, we use
professional shippers and the customer pays only the actual cost.  If more than one payment for a piece is better for your budget, we'll try to work out a payment plan. However, if pieces are purchased with staged payments, essentially removing them from the market, no returns will be possible.
