A Word about Vintage/Antique Items
Heatherbrae Antiques deals predominantly in antique and vintage pieces of furniture and décor. These items have been previously used and loved and, as a result, are not in “as new” condition.
There are signs of use with most of these items, commensurate with the age of said piece. Heatherbrae makes an effort to disclose any “major” defects or condition issues that are above and beyond “normal wear and tear”. However, the odd time things do escape our diligence.
If you are dissatisfied with your item(s) for any condition related reason, we welcome your phone call or email and we will work with you to resolve the matter amicably.
We have been in business locally since 1967.
