Treasures Anew open Monday, Oct 8: noon -4 pm

Given the trauma that our City recently suffered due to the tornadoes that affected so many of us, it makes the Thanksgiving holiday even more poignant this year. To add to that, October has always been a month of transition. We have such conflicting feelings: we’re sad that yet another summer has passed and anxious about the coming winter. But it’s still a glorious month. I’m always in awe at the beauty of the changing leaves. And, of course, the leaves are at their prime during the Thanksgiving weekend.

Speaking of the long weekend, we know that many of you will be enjoying the holiday with family and friends. Food will abound and we’ll all be a bit heavier on Tuesday morning (but it is so worth it!). You just might feel a bit sleepy and torpid from eating all that turkey and yet you really don’t want to sleep the afternoon away. Why not shake off that sluggish feeling by coming down to Treasures Anew? Spend a leisurely couple of hours just poking around. We’ll be open from noon to 4 pm. And yes, we will be open Sunday, October 7 from 11 am to 5 pm.

In the past, we’ve given you a list of what are clients are looking for. We thought we’d shake things up a bit and tell you what are clients are not looking for. This might help you decide what to bring in the next time you consign with us.

Some of the items that are not ‘moving’ are: collector plates, prints (as opposed to original art), liquor, sherry and parfait glasses, vases, small and medium size baskets, dish sets, silver plate items (excluding flatware), creams and sugars, candle sticks and tea light holders, brass pieces, table and floor lamps. If our clients’ interest in these items change, we’ll be sure to let you know. If you’re in doubt, either call us or email photos of the items that you would like to consign before bringing them in.

To prepare for our seasonal intake, we will begin to take seasonally-related items on Thursday, October 18. The last day for intake of these items will be December 5. Given our limited space, we will give preference to unusual or higher quality items.

Wishing you a warm, blessed Thanksgiving.
