My fabulous partners in
I met Tom Burke over 20 years ago out on the Garage Sale Trail. He was my biggest competition but I didn't mind because he was so handsome and so nice. Both my Mom and I had crushes on him!
Whenever we'd arrive at a sale he beat us to we knew he'd already scored the best stuff because of his amazing eye.
Here's a sampling of what he has in the shop right now...
The chest, lamp and tapestry.
A wonderful old metal table painted with a clock face.
A couple of great old pigskin trunks
A fabulous Chinese Travel Chest
A Buddha and Carved Wooden Mask
A Large Framed Tapa Cloth
Large Crescent Cracker Tin
Child's Wicker Rocker
Vintage Toy Chest
You can find Tom most Saturdays at the shop.
I think you'll love him as much as I do!
Where is your shop at? I would like to come mosey about because it looks like there are some great finds.
SO exciting!!!! You're right...Tom has a GREAT eye. That vintage toy box is calling my son's name. Wish you were just around the corner. :)
Thanks for your comment!
Would love to have you stop by the shop :)
We are located at the corner of Telegraph and Alcatraz in Oakland on the Berkeley border.
Looking forward to meeting you!!
Tom does have great taste! Love the array of wonderful things he has to offer. I'm sure the items will fly out of the store :)
My skin is not tan anymore it's turning green. Miss you and I see why.
Wow, what wonderful items! He does have such an eye for great pieces!

I don't know why I haven't made it there yet! Well, yes, I do. I haven't been able to get out of the shadow of my twins, and I assure you, you do not want them in your shop. Preschool starts soon, though.
Anyway, thanks for introducing us to your partner and I CANNOT wait to visit.
Looking forward to seeing the new shop this month.... and by the way, the antique Chinese travel chest is fabulous!
Beautiful items...that Tom...you'll just have to get up earlier to beat him :)
Sounds like you have found the best guy for a partner in the biz. He has great taste!

I already own a horse collar mirror, but how much is that print or painting of Yosemite to the right of the mirror? Ann
there's great treasures there - I love the vintage toy drum for a kid's bedroom or playroom. What a great find!
