About

Greentiques -- an exciting new concept in antique, vintage and pre-owned home furnishings.

WHAT ARE GREENTIQUES?
Greentiques are home décor items that are pre-owned … whether they are antique, vintage or just a few years old. Buying pre-owned goods is among the greenest way to protect the environment. It’s also one of the easiest ways to save money while reducing your eco-footprint.

WHO IS GREENTIQUES?
Greentiques is owned by Harry & Maggie Lennon who owned Lennon Hall Antiques for many years, selling antiques and collectibles in a retail store and on eBay as 'lennonhallantiques' for over a decade (with over 4000 feedbacks).

WHO IS GREENTIQUES?
Greentiques is owned by Harry & Maggie Lennon who owned Lennon Hall Antiques for many years, selling antiques and collectibles in a retail store and on eBay as 'lennonhallantiques' for over a decade (with over 4000 feedbacks). We recently left eBay and started GREENTIQUES -- to make our lifelong love of antiques and vintage items more relevant to the concerns of today’s environment and today’s challenging economy. Are antiques really relevant today? Not so much anymore. But, vintage finds and pre-owned furniture are becoming a more and more important way to not only decorate your own environment but to protect the planet's environment. From this concept was born Greentiques. We are so committed to this concept that we have trademarked the words 'Greentiques' and 'Greentique'.

WHERE IS GREENTIQUES?
Greentiques is based on Northport, Long Island, New York. Long Island is home to some of America’s poshest communities. Most Greentiques come from these communities and include estate finds ... auction purchases ... and even curbside recoveries. Please note: we no longer maintain on open-to-the-public warehouse or retail shop. If you are in the NY tri-state area and want to see us you'll need an appointment. Thanks!

WHY BUY GREENTIQUES?
Most manufactured furniture contains wood from several trees that may be from old growth forests or even rainforests (e.g., mahogany, one of the most common furniture woods, is a rainforest tree that’s nearing extinction). Something as simple as a drinking glass contains sand that’s mined from the earth’s beaches. A dinner plate contains clay that’s strip mined from clay pits. Every piece of brass … or silver … or copper has been mined from the earth and refined using polluting techniques. While most people are not aware of the environmental cost of their home décor, they are aware of its financial cost. Buying Greentiques reduces both of these costs – by not only saving you money, but helping to save the planet, too by reducing the use of earth’s limited resources in the manufacture of home décor!
