One half of the husband and wife Arcane Objects team was raised in a house that was full of mid-century furniture and art. This aesthetic has strongly rubbed off. We love this stuff and know that you will too. We specialize in mid-century oil and watercolor paintings. We also carry barware, kitchenware, clocks, vintage craft books vintage costume jewelry and decor.
As we're crawling through estate sale basements, flea markets, garage sales and junkyards - we may find a piece and think "someone could really make something cool with this!" In the past we've acquired parts from old gas lamps, broken pocket watches, vacuum tubes, old gears, vintage bingo cards and various other odds & ends that might work for jewelers, crafters and artists.
We also carry vintage comic books and since are semi-fluent in Elvish, "Lord of the Rings" collectibles, Magic the Gathering cards and other examples of much sought-after fine-geekery.
