• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Looking for alternative website or trusted ebay sellers that sell nice items and objects like they do on 1stdibs. I am not sure if they reflect market prices; however, they are awefully expensive.

I am particularly fond of Art Deco items (particularly original bronze statues). I also like Scandinavian modern furniture. Even if I could afford the 1stdibs prices; as you have alluded to, I am not sure I want to pay those prices. Unsure where else to look.

Here in Boston we are fortunate to have this store: http://www.machine-age.com/ Ive purchased a few things from them. They, too, are NOT inexpensive. The two Grete Jalk arm chairs I bought had just been reconditioned, and I was able to have them cover the cushions in my choice of Knoll fabrics. Those actually were not too badly priced.

I would suggest the website http://d-vers.com They are also a bit pricey, and you may not get the kind of deals you will on eBay. Most of the pieces they have, though, are extremely rare, and I have never seen anything like most of them on eBay.
