Add This to the Permanent Collection: Dealer's Choice


How was your Christmas/Hanukkah haul this year? So that question is probably in bad taste, but I'd just like to share with you how over the moon I am with one gift I received in particular. My ever-prescient sister really hit the nail on the head when she gave me Michael Bruno and Craig Kellogg's new-ish coffee table book, Dealer's Choice: At Home With Purveyors of Antique and Vintage Furnishings. This book is - very un-ironically - the dream I've been waiting to come true. It profiles in 384 big, bold, beautifully executed pages the homes and apartments of 32 of the world's top dealers and shop owners specializing in antique and vintage furnishings. Even as I write this I'm thinking they can definitely do a second volume since there are SO MANY great shops out there, but these 32 interiors are truly the best of the best. If you like Apartment Therapy house tours, take note - this book is undoubtedly the heroin of house tours.

Thank You For Being a Friend

STUDY Booth at Broadway Antique Market Chicago

Well there she is... the STUDY booth at Broadway Antique Market is officially live as of last Thursday and thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who came out to help me celebrate this milestone. Not to get all sappy on you, but I've got a lot of personal reasons (don't we all) for being excited about this particular space, and it really meant a lot to see so many friends and longtime fans of STUDY show up; we even got a visit from the cutest lesbian couple ever who've been followers and customers of STUDY's since way back when we exhibited at the DANK Haus during the first Vintage Bazaar

So let it be known... if STUDY can win over the elusive design-minded lesbian crowd, we can do anything. Today Portia and Ellen, tomorrow the WORLD!

A Season of Sales: Vintage Bounty 12/8 - 12/11

In case I haven't blasted you via twitter, instagram or facebook, may I take this opportunity to remind you that STUDY has officially moved into Broadway Antique Market as of today! We "soft opened" on Sunday (I know, so insidery) but we're getting ready to put our big boy pants on tonight when BAM has their annual Holiday Party and Sale from 6-9pm. STUDY is offering 20% off all merchandise, the vast majority of which is brand new since we haven't done as show since Dose Market in August! It's been too long people... seriously, STUDY misses you, and hopefully you miss STUDY.
