European antiques with a focus on pine furniture at amazingly reasonable prices. – The Scene
Father and daughter Roy and Kelly Donovan opened their store in 1975 in an old dairy warehouse, now adorned with green window awnings, antique iron fencing and a driveway laid with cobblestone and old Chicago-street brick pavers. In addition to the merchandise, Kelly's personal collection of children's rocking toys--from the turn of the century through the 1920s--creates an appealing atmosphere.
Two floors are packed--but not cluttered--with mostly pine armoires, dressers, bedside tables, trunks and a few dining tables. Pieces are hand-selected from Belgium, France, Germany, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia, and prices are surprisingly reasonable. Finds may include a two-door armoire from Belgium circa 1860 and a painted dresser from Hungary. Filling the dusty gaps are accessories like bed boards from Switzerland and a hat tree from the former Czechoslovakia. Restoration and finishing are done in-house.
