Did someone say new purple fabric? The women’s cut shirts for this weekend’s Bluemont Fair are purple!

Can you tell which is the “before” and which is the “after?” New fabric makes such a difference.

We can’t help but stop at antique stores when we travel. You just never know what you’re going to find! Looks like Bob won’t be back at the store until Monday afternoon, so if you plan to come out, you may want to call first.

We love the way these chairs turned out! They’re part of a set of six. Please note that we’ll be closed Friday-Monday this weekend for Bob to attend his high school reunion.

This chair lost its stripes in favor of a fabric that will work in more places. 🙂 Please note that we’ll be closed July 3-5 for the holiday weekend. Happy Independence Day! 🇺🇸

This chair went from a dated floral fabric to something more modern!

During our recent trip we stopped at Antique Archeology, which is from the show American Pickers. We found it to be more of a tourist destination than a real antique store, like ours! #antiquearcheology

Sorry about the delay in the June newsletter. Look for it Saturday. In the meantime it’s not too early to start thinking about the Bluemont Fair.

See you at the Bluemont Fair in September!

What do you think about this floral fabric? I like it more than the striped fabric that had been there. The pop of color in the design really appeals to me . . .

Happy Mother’s Day! All you moms, I hope you’re thinking of projects for Bob & Cecil such as the chair below that got new caning and upholstery. They thrive on staying busy!

Isn’t this fabric amazing? What a difference it’s made to these chairs!

Happy Easter! This photo is of an old family card—though it’s actually a Christmas card. Without the text, it looks like Easter to me!

This Berkey & Gay chair from the late 1800s looks much better now than when it came in!

This clock bonnet dates from 1760. A work-in-progress photo is included for comparison. The whole clock will undoubtedly be gorgeous if this is any indication!

This chair looks great after restoration! When the original cane seat was damaged, it was covered with a fiber one, but now has a new cane seat!

Last week we shared photos of the beautiful refinished drop-front desk, but posting again along with the “before” photos. What a difference!

Today’s “before” & “after” shows a chair going from worn and dated to fresh and vibrant!

Bob & Cecil have been busy this week! The 1st two photos are of a slant front desk that’s mahogany veneer and poplar. The 3rd photo shows a chair with a new rush seat. The last photo is a cherry chest of drawers.

Henry & I helped rearrange the store this this afternoon. We thought this chair needed a little work. :-)
