To say it's been crazy busy would be an understatement. In between the last time I updated the site (three weeks ago :-( sorry) and today I've set up and sold at Brimfield, bought some amazing pieces at the New York City flea market, sold and delivered a bunch of cool finds and basically worked my tail off. I didn't post all of my latest finds here, so… Click the pics above to see them (and more) on my Instagram!
Then, Anna Brockway of Chairish and Ken Fulk of Ken Fulk Interiors came through. Wait, what?
September 18, 2017
First let me tell you about the last Brimfield of 2017. September Brimfield saw me setting up on Sunday and shopping the other fields on their respective opening days. When Wednesday came around and it was time for my field to open (Heart-O-The-Mart) the weather had a serious change of heart. Rain had been forecast, but the sun was winning out. That was of course until the opening bell rang at 9am on Wednesday and the skies opened up. And then the wind came. And then the tents flew. Seriously. Not exactly sure of the gust velocity, but let me tell you there were more than a few tents that went flying across the HOTM field. Thankfully mine stayed put (thank you Tent Connection) and all of my merchandise stayed dry. Which was a good thing because I had not one but two customers in my booth during the strongest parts of the storm. Each of them put together some serious pile of merchandise that they wanted to buy. And buy they did! Then, Anna Brockway of Chairish and Ken Fulk of Ken Fulk Interiors came through. Wait, what? Yes. Ken Fulk. The entourage put together a pile of my most favorite picture frames and purchased them straight away. They definitely brought the sunshine with them as the skies cleared. Thank you!! Now, back in The Greatest City in the World, I was right back to shopping. Whether it was a totally chic mid century modern iron bench, or a faux marble painted wood pedestal gifted to Albert Hadley (yes, THAT Albert Hadley), or a Thomas Molesworth style wrought iron jack rabbit smoking stand - you can be sure I was shopping (and selling) as quickly as I could. Today saw me on a house call (antique dealers DO make house calls) and on an apartment cleanout. Keep up to date with my latest finds on my Instagram feed and feel free to drop me a line sometime.… Keep in touch with new finds through my social media accounts. And it wouldn't hurt to sign up for my mailing list too. Links for all of those things are all over all of my sites. Seriously. Like all over.

I'm all over New York City buying and flipping everyday. You can usually find my new finds on Instagram… be sure to follow to get your favorite find first. Sourcing the freshest antique, modern and vintage pieces is what I do every day. Whether I'm scouring the streets of Manhattan, the neighborhoods of Philadelphia or the flea markets along the East Coast - I'm always looking for the rare, the sublime and the unique. You can expect eye catching art, intricate sculpture, unique furniture, one of a kind lighting and so much more. Get in touch with me today and I'll start sourcing great finds for you! Working with a select group of Interior Designers is another aspect of my business. Loaning pieces for their showhouses, buying specific items and calling upon my curated group of artists and brands that I've created through Modern Look Book are other ways that I'm able to offer custom service to my clients.

It was February of 2002 and I had just moved into a six month sublet in Alphabet City in the East Village. With $600 and no job, I thought I could make it in New York City. So six months went by and after searching the classifieds in the Village Voice I finally found my own apartment in the West Village. And guess what… Click here to find out what Heather Karlie Fine Art is all about.

Modern Look Book started in 2015 as a new approach to vintage - making it modern. I wanted to mix in great modern and contemporary design, art and brands in vintage interiors. I gathered up a core group of friends and colleagues' work to debut it all alongside my vintage and antique finds. It was a huge success. Click here to read more!

Heather Karlie Fine Art started off in a 341 square foot apartment in New York's West Village. Early morning sourcing at the Chelsea flea market yielded armfuls of antique, period and modernist picture frames. A quick email or two, appointments made on the Upper East Side and a subway ride were all part of my routine. I was sourcing for the top galleries in NYC. Click here to read more!
