Everything was so lovely, even more beautiful in person than I expected! This flatware was the perfect special touch for our wedding place settings. Communication with David was always clear and easy - plus he's so kind. We had no worries, got everything perfectly on time, and can't say thanks enough. Highly recommend!
What's your super power?
I'm of the mind we all have a super power, or two. When you look at your life and how you approach things, your super power starts to reveal itself. Mine, mainly, is problem solving - give me a problem and I'll solve it. Couple this with a tried and true eye for thrifting and you get Avant Modern, my Etsy Store. I tend to pick up things which are forgotten, which have lost it's original luster due to neglect or misuse. Like stray kittens found on the corner, I have to pick them up.
I'm not saying I always knew exactly how to bring them back to life, but I knew I'd figure it out. There had to be a way. So I tried every cleaner, polishes, read the science of it all, and came to develop my own techniques. The Dirilyte process is one of my star achievements, I haven't seen anyone else restore these wonderful sets as original as Avant Modern does. And I apply these same principles to everything in the shop.
And my love of restoration is why my items will come to you looking as new as they possibly can. I don't just find them and list them. I tend to them and bring them back to life. Like any home for strays, it's a total pleasure doing it. There is a reward in their renewed life. Especially knowing it's going to be going to a good home. I care for each item I list. Each item is inspected, restored , and protected for the next 30-50 years.
I hope you'll enjoy them. xo-do
Is this Etsy store a means to justify my thrift-store fueled horading? Perhaps. But I hope you'll see the good quality, fair price and love I have for each of the pieces I list.
