At Patina, we don’t believe in “NFS” since finding something great and learning it’s “not for sale” is “NMF” – “not much fun!” We work to keep our prices reasonable and that’s what you’ll find when you flip a tag over at Patina!
Patina Antiques, etc.’s mix of antiques, vintage and new merchandise – a true hodge podge – runs the gamut from fine antiques to the fun and functional. We like to say you’ll find “some things 19th century…some things $19.”
“In terms of antiques, patina is everything that happens to an object over the course of time. The nick in the leg of a table, a scratch on a table top, the loss of moisture in the paint, the crackling of a finish or a glaze in ceramics, the gentle wear patterns on the edge of a plate. All these things add up to create a softer look, subtle color changes, a character. Patina is built from all the effects, natural and man-made, that create a true antique.” – Israel Sack
