August & Everything

August 15, 2013

So many great reasons to celebrate this month!  A milestone birthday in the house, Ciara’s 1st full year with us, August 23rd officially marks the 20th year anniversary of Robuck, and we are in the final construction phases of our new website!  With help from the shipping Gods, we may even receive some items from our last buying trip by month’s end.  The shop will be more than ready for the new inventory!  Summer did not slow people down…in fact, I have noticed a whole new crop of young designers excited to shop antiques.  

The latest postings and special peeks of new shipment below, along with a few vintage Robuck photos taken abroad.  We have been organizing our archives (easily distracting) as they will have a special place on the new site.  Just couldn’t resist sharing the nostalgic high.  

My only complaint is time is going by way too fast…

Kindest Regards,
