FRESH TO THE MARKET
Remember last week when I mentioned there was a chill in the air? Well this weekend was downright cold! Buying was good over the weekend with three interesting purchases - two on Sunday and one on Saturday. There was a nice mix of dealers this weekend and it was nice to see both familiar and unfamiliar faces. In fact, two of my purchases all came from folks with whom I had not yet done business!
My first purchase on Saturday morning was an interesting gouache / pen and ink / watercolor done in shades of black. It's a city scene showing a very busy sidewalk. The piece is signed Marin. The work is very expressive with both light and dark brushstrokes. Definitely something that I'll have to remove from the frame so I can take a closer look! You know how I love a mystery!!! The rest of Saturday I purchased a couple items for our home, one is an elephant statue and the other is a hand in heart antique brass bottle opener - cheers! Then on Sunday, I bought two things - a painting and a rug. The painting is an oil on canvas and dates to the circa 1970's. It's a beach scene done in a very minimalist way with a neutral color palette. It's in a square format and measures about 3 feet by 3 feet. I bought this while it was still a bit dark - it was leaning against a fence, but underneath a collection of another artist's work. This artist was from Queens. The works were interesting. Next up, well after the sun had made an appearance, I bought a vibrant geometric pattern rug runner. It measures about 8 feet long and 2 feet wide. I absolutely loved the colors and scale as soon as I laid eyes on it. There is a checkerboard type design down either side and a diamond style pattern down the center. It has a great look!

With three great new additions to my inventory, I'll be shopping and selling the week ahead! But all work and no play definitely make for a dull antique dealer, so I made sure to do some other stuff too - visit with friends, pick out the Christmas tree and enjoy time at home. I have stay on my toes for next weekend!

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!
