THE TWO BIRDS
There is nothing like a treasure hunt and finding that
special item that calls your name. A beautifully aged country table, a unique piece of art, a perfect decor accent that defines your personality and style . One doesn't really need much, only to adore the things one does have. Antiquing and collecting bring new life to old things. Unique things. You won't find them at a box store, you can't make them, you can only hope that they will find their way to you. That's the fun of collecting antiques and lost treasures.
That's what we Two Birds strive to do.
We are two sisters, both hunters and gatherers of primitive,
mid-century and fine antiques and collectibles. Both originally from Quebec, we have settled west. Patricia is the country bird, soaring and hunting above the wide prairie skyline . Tina, ever the city bird, has built her treasure nest in Calgary,
Two Birds, purveyors of beautiful old things, would love share our treasures and expertise with you and help you in your own
search for that something special.
TWO BIRDS WORKS WITH WIDE AND VARIED
WE ARE SELLERS - Beautiful and unique items simply have to be shared. That is central to Two Birds. We sell our treasures privately, through retail and online.
WE ARE CONSIGNORS - One person's junk is another's treasure as they say. It couldn't be more true. Whether you are downsizing, simplifying or simply feeling you can offer new life to some of your old things, we can help. We will buy or consign your once loved items needing a new home.
WE ARE HUNTERS - Been looking for that something special for a while? Please let us know. As active auction goers, hunters, gatherers and surfers for great antiques and collectibles, we might be able to help!
The Two Birds collection is quite extensive. Regrettably, individual items are too many to list and are changing all the time. As a quick sampling,
Two Birds collect primarily in four disciplines.
Primitives and Canadiana
Think Shaker and Quebec pine. Old butter churns, ice cream makers and kitchenware, loved and worn ranch and farm tools, early rustic chairs, tables and curios. Sneak a peek .
Think Austin Powers and Mad Men. Vintage teak and walnut furniture, tube shortwave radios and eight-track stereo consoles, whisk-worn pyrex and groovy kitchen, cocktail and entertainment must-haves. Total '50s, 60's and 70's, with just a splash of the 80's. And a sampling .
European and Asian
Think Queen Victoria and the Far East. Rich mahogany, velvet, silver, crystal and bone china, chinoiserie and cloisonne, saris and netsukes. Take a look .
Curiosities and Oddities
Think surprise bag! We never know what uniques finds find us! Art, feather hats and jewellry fall under this category as might vintage license plates, WWII militaria, iron yarn ballers, mink stoles or a vintage yo-yo. And more .
