Sept 4, 2016 - An altar restored, a story told.
In the summer we had an amazing lady come out to visit with a unique story. We learned her husband is a pediatric doctor, and they decided to create a chapel inside their practice for solace and prayer. They put their hearts, faith, and life-savings into this project so the children, along with their families and friends could lean on each other and pray beside each other in times of need. Having a kids of my own, I know the parents of children who need critical care can't be thankful enough.
It's a project like this I found truly inspiring and something I'll never forget. We're always glad to help churches, diocese, priests, etc, however this felt far more personal and I'm honored I was able to help.
They recently finished the altar, it was one we had that needed restoring:
And while they were having it restored, discovered it was originally Gold Leaf!
So they kept it as original as possible during restoration, and this is the result:
Absolutely fantastic! Thanks Kristen and Allen, I pray you, the children, and their parents find comfort here.

Since redesigning our website about two weeks ago, we've seen an overwhelming increase of web traffic, phone calls, visits to our warehouse and sales. We focus on antique church items and know our uncommon inventory is difficult to find. However we never *really* tried "getting out there" with search engines, and with our site popping up more on google, bing, etc are SO glad to see parishioners and priests finding our items for their church.
Keep in mind that the photos we've listed on our site represent only a small selection of what we actually have stored in our warehouse. If there's an item you are looking for, please let us know and we'll see if we have something for you that might work.
Thank you again for the amazing positive response!

We are almost entirely word of mouth and rely on you to reach the community we serve. It's extremely difficult to find these old traditional items we've collected, yet when they are needed, we have them.
Our inventory always changes, please keep in mind that what is shown on our website is a fraction of what's on-hand in our warehouse. If you are serious about finding these types of vintage traditional items for a new or existing church, you'll want to visit. Not only will you enjoy yourself, you'll save a time and money!
It helped tremendously. We've kept the site simple to use for both desktop and mobile. It's now easier than ever to show / share items to others who may be interested in seeing our unique inventory. The major parts of our site is finished, and we're focusing on getting items in our warehouse photographed and put on our site. I'll use this news / blog to highlight some, but the majority will simply be added to the associated gallery.
