To say that it's been a busy week would be an understatement. In addition to buying and flipping seventy (yes, 70) paintings on Saturday, I bought a solid marble statue of Psyche of Capua and four paintings. The statue is for a super secret project and the four paintings are slated for September Brimfield. Plus, sold a few pieces from Craigslist (yes, CL) and my niece is in town from London. We're doing all the touristy stuff in NYC… Click the pics above to see them on my Instagram!
I'll be there Sunday, September 3rd through Wednesday, September 6th as the NYC school year kicks off Thursday, September 7th. Yes, I know it's Labor Day, but that's the way it is with antique dealers, ya gotta sell when the sellin's good!

SEVENTY. I really couldn't believe it either. You see, there was a HUGE pile of oils on board and so I HAD to buy them all. Plus a wonderful watercolor in a great Arts and Crafts style frame. I bought the whole lot and flipped them with a couple of text messages to another dealer. Keeping the inventory flowing and the sales brisk. I really don't want to sit on merchandise (unless it's a chair, get it?) and the best way to to keep it wholesale and move it along. I've also been tasked with a super secret project, so let's just say that I'm working on that also. Sorry to not give any details, other than Psyche of Capua, but that's the way it has to be right now. And the other four paintings? The pair of 19th Century Hudson River School-ish landscapes plus the Victorian flowers and the Dutch cottage scene will be great at September Brimfield. I have a few surprises already in my storage for the last of the three shows this year. Let me tell you, if you haven't made it to the May or July shows - you MUST come to September Brimfield. Dealers will be pulling out all the stops to end the 2017 Brimfield year on a high note. Be there to get some amazing deals. I'll be there Sunday, September 3rd through Wednesday, September 6th as the NYC school year kicks off Thursday, September 7th. Yes, I know it's Labor Day, but that's the way it is with antique dealers, ya gotta sell when the sellin's good! … Keep in touch with new finds through my social media accounts.

It was February of 2002 and I had just moved into a six month sublet in Alphabet City in the East Village. With $600 and no job, I thought I could make it in New York City. So six months went by and after searching the classifieds in the Village Voice I finally found my own apartment in the West Village. And guess what… Click here to find out what Heather Karlie Fine Art is all about.

Modern Look Book started in 2015 as a new approach to vintage - making it modern. I wanted to mix in great modern and contemporary design, art and brands in vintage interiors. I gathered up a core group of friends and colleagues' work to debut it all alongside my vintage and antique finds. It was a huge success. Click here to read more!

Heather Karlie Fine Art started off in a 341 square foot apartment in New York's West Village. Early morning sourcing at the Chelsea flea market yielded armfuls of antique, period and modernist picture frames. A quick email or two, appointments made on the Upper East Side and a subway ride were all part of my routine. I was sourcing for the top galleries in NYC. Click here to read more!
