I Don't Get Out To The Other Shops Around Town Often Enough. I Stopped In At The Future Antiques A Few Days Ago And Was Surprised By All The Beautiful Broyhill. Status: Amazed!
Everybody here knows that Brasilia is Mr. Modtomic's favorite Broyhill Premier line...but TFA only had one piece in house at the time I was there. They certainly didn't lack for other lines to make up for it! Sculptra, Saga and even a couple of pieces of Forward 70 were well represented.
There were several full dining suits in the Saga line. You don't normally find this many pieces of
Saga...anywhere. It kinda made me wonder if maybe they had found some secret stash or something.
Nope, just got a couple of good buy outs. Right now the joint is rife with the Broyhill.
I didn't pay it too much mind until I noticed the Saga living room tables. I've never seen coffee or
end tables from the Saga line before. I'm betting that many of you have never seen them before
either. I felt it was maybe a good idea to document them while I had the chance. They had a pair of
end tables, a corner table and a coffee table with a drawer.
One other piece they had that I'd never come across before was a Saga server. I really wish I had
brochures for all the different lines and pieces available. The only servers I had even seen before
these were the Brasilia servers. Granted, I've never looked for any in the other lines...but I've seen
plenty of the Brasilia line on craigslist.
There were only two pieces of the Forward 70 line, but that's at least one more than I've seen
anywhere else...well, except at an estate sale a few years ago. Still, it's a pretty rare sighting. Have
you ever seen a Forward 70 server? I haven't...until now. See below.
Yup, two more servers! A Sculptra and a Forward 70. Did I tell ya? Tons of Broyhill!!! Just not
much Brasilia. Of course, there's lots of other good stuff at The Future Antiques...there always is.
This is one of the first places I think of to send people who are in from out of town doing a little
shopping. Even if you don't leave with something you'll still be amazed by the enormous and
overwhelming selection of good stuff.
