Oct 7, 2016 - Statues done, Chalices next!
Been a bit too busy to even write up some tidings! We finally have most of our larger statues photographed, sized, and listed here. We're currently working on doing the same for the chalices. We've had many seminarians contact us recently (thanks btw!), and it's been a struggle to manage so many requests. Please hang tight over the next couple months while we organize them and put a hold on individual requests of photos. As always Deacons are encouraged to visit in person since their chalice is so personal, and we're always glad to have you out, even at a moments notice. Once we have all our chalices organized, we'll be in a perfect position to get relevant information and photos out virtually immediately upon request.
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!
