We don’t price our crafts. We simply pass along what the market price is. In general, we try to set an average price of what an item costs based on what is considered a ‘fair market’ retail price. We do our best to ensure that products are sold only at the ‘full’ retail price or as reasonably possible within our retail pricing guidelines. Unfortunately, every now and again an item is left unsold despite our best efforts to contact the buyer and attempt to resolve the sale. In such cases, unfortunately the customer would also have to pay the market price for the item.

How does you work on antique furniture?
We hand cut all wood pieces, glue and finish. All of these tools must be used carefully and properly by someone with extensive experience in the area of antique restoration. They must be used carefully, because some antique pieces are delicate and may be fragile. Carefully handling a piece is necessary to get the best results and avoid damaging the piece.
What type of materials are used in your repair shop?
