There’s something about wintry days that make a person see their home with new eyes.

Maybe it’s all that indoor time between the holidays and the Super Bowl that spurs that itch for change.

Whether you while away your weekends rearranging the furniture, or reclining on your George Nelson sofa, I’m pretty sure you’ve spent a little time envisioning how swell your living room would look with that orange chair parked in front of the picture window.

Before you know it, you might find yourself brandishing a paintbrush and picking out new throw pillows.

 Being the voice of experience, I know that every re-arrange calls for at least one new-to- the- space object. Maybe it’s something for the wall, or something for a shelf, or something for the floor, or a big comfy chair.

Whatever the case, a new addition is needed.

Sometimes you need to venture forth, in search of that perfect book case or side chair.

Other times, the facelift can be completed by cruising through your house and pillaging paintings and end tables and pottery from other rooms.

Either way, you’ll find that you need to replace and rearrange still more items in the wake of your picking and moving.

It’s pretty easy to imagine the variety of objects and furnishings you can find at an Antique Helper Auction, but, if you discover that a once-loved coffee table or floor lamp is no longer needed, we can help you take care of that, too.

Antique Helper can help you turn revamping into profit.

We’d love to help you sell your fine art and antiques in 2011.
