Rejuvenated Furniture & Finds

About the WHY.

So you all know what we do. But do you know WHY ? Customers ask all the time so I thought I'd share a short version of the story.

It all starts in 2003 when my children were very young. New bedroom furniture was needed. I went shopping and was very disappointed. New furniture was getting worse and worse in terms of quality. Especially in the price range I was considering. There were some really well-made pieces but the prices were way beyond my budget. All wood pieces were in the $1200 - $1500 range and we didn't want to spend $5000 for a set.

The Value of Old

I feel there is a lot of value in vintage furniture that isn't always obvious or appreciated. Sure, we notice the color, shape, and style of a rejuvenated piece. And of course, the price. But look deeper. The real value is hidden in the craftsmanship, the dovetailed joints, the hard wood case, the actual structure of the piece. Remember, these pieces were built mostly in the USA at a time when people took pride in their work. Companies cared about value, not a quick buck. 

Buying a vintage piece of furniture is an investment not an expense.

Big changes in 2015

Welcome to 2015. It's hard to believe how far things have come in the last few years. We are becoming a legitimate furniture destination for customers beyond the city. Four of the thirteen vendor businesses in the cellar are from New Jersey while 2014 saw customers coming from as far as Brooklyn, Maryland, Delaware, Lancaster, Harrisburg, and Central New Jersey. Through our ETSY page, we got requests to send merchandise to dozens of far away states, Canada, and even France. Because of the ridiculous cost, we will not be shipping our merchandise anytime soon.

November update

Ok, so when I started this blog, I thought I would update it once or twice a week.  HA ! That's so funny. A busy summer led to a busy fall and now it's almost Christmas. So here's what's new:

Rented some space in a warehouse so that's where I spend my Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and where most of the work is now getting done. (And you thought I took days off)

The website got updated and we started promoting our pieces on Etsy.com. You can buy directly on-line and pick-up at the shop.

And so, the blog is born!

Rejuvenated Furniture has always maintained great communications with customers and community via Facebook, our website, and in-store conversations.  Still, the feeling was that there was more to share.  We want to talk about what we do in greater detail, to talk about how and why the rejuvenating takes place, to communicate just how much time, effort and love is given to each project.  After all, every piece of furniture has a story to tell.

And so, the blog is born!  We hope you will enjoy reading about our projects as much as we enjoy doing them.  Like us, love us, share us, pin us, help us get the word out to those who don't know about us and promise to keep filling your home with amazing pieces of rejuvenated furniture.
