Business Model

Business ModelLippy’s Furniture & Antiques buys and sells higher value antiques and collectibles and will deal in better quality bric-a-brac. Many of the items purchased by Lippy’s are lovingly renovated by specialist craftsmen such as; silversmiths, furniture makers, cabinet makers and upholsterers. Although we restore many items, we do not do this for other businesses unless it is on a commission basis.

As many restorers are tempted to take ‘short-cuts’ now and again, Kevin takes an interest in each item being restored and in conjunction with the craftsman involved, will specify the criteria for restoration so that functionality and historical relevance are retained. When this is undertaken properly an items value is only enhanced and Lippy’s has another wonderful item to sell.
