About ContessasHome (revised)

Contessa’s is now ConntessasHome on Etsy.com  our e-commerce adventure.   You can also find us on eBay at ContessasHome2016.

In today’s new buying and selling world the e-commerce experience is helping everyone save time and shop from anywhere.  And it can be fun and challenging. You can now be half way around the world and purchase just about anything.  We are fortunate to have stayed up to date with current technology and social media.  This definitely gives us an edge. It’s a blessing.  

We continue to use our God inspired talents and resources to find more eclectic items,  just like we did at our Del Ray store.  We continue  to secure wonderful volumes for our dedicated book audience, and we will post new items as quickly as we acquire them. Going forward we will specialize in affordable vintage fine and decorative art, as well as, small occasional furniture pieces,  mirrors, lamps, chandeliers, “classic” hard cover books, and Vintage “Smalls.”  Our merchandise will be purchased at auction galleries, and private estate sales. We are always  “about town” seeking out wonderful yard sales, flea markets, unique thrift stores and private homes for unusual vintage items. And we have an extensive network of “pickers” in the metro area to help us track down customers special requests  Prestigious neighborhoods like Georgetown have been some of our favorite haunts. (for example we acquired a five-arm Chandelier with twelve missing crystals and needing to be (copper) re-wired. We completed the restoration of this beautiful  “Schonbek” crystal chandelier which is for sale on  etsy.com at $650. It’s true market value in 1940 was over $1k. Check it out!

All items that we sell will be restored to period and sold in “best” condition.  

It’s all “good ” at ContessasHome……

We can teach you and work along with you in your garden. Using a “hands on” approach. Or if you prefer,we can complete the job for you. Gardening is perfect for your soul, especially now during COVID. Being outdoors and working in the soil with your hands, will more than renew your inner spirit.
