This week kicks off our NEW spring schedule at Michael Taylor At Home. We’re now open every Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-5pm…extended hours to give our fabulous customers more flexibility when you shop! With 9,000 sq ft of combined gallery and warehouse space, we have so many treasures in store that it’s hard to pick just a few to feature on this blog, but we wanted to highlight several new things we’ve got in store right now.

We just received a large assortment of these charming framed mottos from the 1930s-40’s. ¬†These are just a few examples…they have sweet graphics and quotes about friendship, family or relationships, and look wonderful hung as a group. Very collectible, and would be a great gift item for a vintage-loving friend.

These photos just don’t do the lush colors of these hand-painted china pieces justice. They are SO beautiful! Ranging in price from $115 for the serving plate to $125 for the sugar and creamer set. The pastel colors are just the perfect thing for an Easter table.

We have beautiful chinoiserie pieces in store–Michael has a special fondness for it, and is a collector himself. The large vase with plums on the handles is $800, but the covered dish is $72, and sweet figurines are in the $25 range. Something for everyone!IMG_6043

This spectacular inlaid chinoiserie low table with 6 matching stools is a true one-of-kind piece…we get the most unique things in our gallery, don’t we? Really special and unusual!

Crystal, florals, fine furniture and fabulous artwork…you really have to see for yourself! Our inventory changes each week…and we get new inventory in all the time, so if it’s been awhile since you’ve shopped with us, we promise that it’s not the same old/same old.

This week, we’ve got lots of shopping opportunities…in addition to our new extended spring schedule at Michael Taylor At Home, we have three estate sales going on. Check our estate sale listings tab on the home page for details…

And, we are still looking to expand our estate sale team. We’re hiring salespeople, sale setters and cashiers–$11/hr start, must be available 3 days/week, must lift 25lbs, pass background check. Honest & hardworking team players only! Email your resume to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.…and if you refer a friend and we hire them, you will receive a $25 gift certificate as a referral bonus.

My best,

Michael Taylor & Company
