Discover one-of-a-kind treasures—including 1900s antique rice boxes finished with silver, gold, and copper leaf; chandeliers; fireplace screens; and 19th-century French sconces—at this lovely little shop showcasing refinished and refurbished small antique furnishings uncovered by owner Mary Mayland at estate sales. Because “leafing finishes are very popular and offer a formal look with a little edge,” says Mayland, many have been enhanced with gold leaf or paint. And, as most pieces fit into the back of a car, there’s no need to delay design gratification—enjoy them in your own abode ASAP.
