Excited to announce our outpost in Long Beach, California’s coolest new venue … Urban Americana! An awesome 16,000 square foot mid-century warehouse, filled with antique dealers, artisans & vintage inspired goods.
UPDATE: Our shop at this location is now closed. But Urban Americana remains a great shopping destination.
Stay tuned … new items to be added to the website all week!
Ooooh, couldn’t wait to share my newest find! Arriving in the shop this week is this fabulous antique cobbler’s bench. Beautifully crafted with dovetail joints, it’s rare to find these early benches so sturdy and complete with all fourteen drawers perfectly intact. Many of these older pieces can tend to have a cutesy country look to them, but the clean lines and apothecary-type drawers make this one feel more rustic industrial. And in my opinion, it has just the right amount of wear & tear.
Probably dating from the mid 1700’s to late 1800’s, I’m struggling to pin down its age, as I haven’t come across another example quite like it. I always learn a lot from my customers, so if you’re knowledgeable about this primitive piece, please share!
