 Business Continuity - Daily Operations Report

In a protest or riot situation, our protective effort takes on special urgency and requires different methods from those employed during normal operations. Protests and riots are unstable, high-tension events that can have outcomes as serious as loss of life, severe personal injuries, major property damage, and complete stoppage of legitimate business activities. A situation including civil unrest may include the implementation of our advanced security profile in an effort to discourage others from harming our employees and facilities.
 
Our ability to show respect for others, no matter what, is an important part of our value system. 

We treat everyone with kindness and compassion.

Going Green

 

Simple Things We Can Do to Help Protect the Earth... 

  • Use long-lasting light bulbs. Energy efficient light bulbs reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Also flip the light switch off when you leave the room!
  • Conserve water. The less water you use, the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the ocean.
  • Choose sustainable. Learn how to make smart seafood choices online at fishwatch.gov.
  • Plant a tree. Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.
  • Don't send chemicals into our waterways. Choose non-toxic chemicals for your home and garden
  • Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cut down on what you throw away. Follow the three "R's" to conserve natural resources and landfill space.

Educate

When you further your own education

you can help others understand the

importance and value of our natural resources

Going Green? 

Sometimes collecting art and objects is viewed as stuffy and old-fashioned but today, buying art, sculptures or furniture can be an important experience and ecologically responsible. More people of all generations are looking at the way we consume and how it impacts the planet. Growing trends focus on ethical consumption and urging people to thrift clothing instead of fueling the existing clothing market. The very same idea can be applied to the items within your home. Essential art and objects can be an important part of an eco-friendly lifestyle. By recycling and reusing items, we experience something new in our life that also helps slow the demand for modern furniture and product markets that utilize massive amounts of wood, synthetic materials, and plastics.  

Perhaps a few suggestions to think about...

  • Keep in mind, there is a difference between antiquing and building a collection.  Building a collection takes time and often a larger budget and should be done with care, while antiquing is more about hunting for items to use within your home. 
  • If possible, try to get your hands on a piece of art or an object.  We all reflexively use Ebay and Amazon, but there is a lot to be said for holding something in your hands and supporting a local thrift store or art gallery when you buy their products.
  • Figure out what objects you need in your home and then see if you can find an equivalent before looking at a modern company. Traditional furniture can have significant value as well as sustainability. Modern furniture may not stand the test of time unless it is from a premier designer like Herman Miller.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions!  If you’re not sure about a particular item or style don’t be afraid to find a pro and ask for their help.
  • Always check for condition.  If something is in poor condition are you up to the challenge of fixing it on your own or paying for someone else to make any necessary repairs.

Don’t like the color of that new chest of drawers? 

Please, please make sure you’re not painting or staining over an original patina and then have fun with your project. Up-cycling isn’t a crime as long as you do your research and confirm you aren’t damaging an original finish or an important piece. Ask a friend or a professional if you are not certain.

About Us

Bread n Butter Antiques LLC

- Private Collection - 

BnB is for 'bread n butter' plates, our petite passion.

- Mission -

 Strive to be of value

Doing Well By Doing Good

Our goal is an essential experience

that is good for the individual, family and the Earth

*Important COVID-19 message*

Conservation and preservation of material culture.

In the beginning I was a collector of stamps.

My grandfather gave me an antique watch and our family entrusted me with a treasure trove of objects. Part of a family of collectors, I live in a home filled with art and antiques inherited from family. Understandably there are some incredible antiques in a family from the Philadelphia region for over 300 years. Once you enter the Gallery, it is obvious that we love to collect beautiful objects for display in our curated exhibits.

Everyone in our family has a true appreciation for family heirlooms and our focus is on preservation and provenance.

I was the only son to get the collecting bug, and like most collectors, I started out early. Trunks, suitcases, and boxes sealed for generations, filled with objects that had belonged to our ancestors. Rooting around and unearthing precious items under the house one day, I decided I wanted to be involved with the conservation of historical objects in one way or another. I decided to study material culture and after many hours of study...I still have much to learn. I received my certification as a valuation professional and today remain focused on conservation. I find many homes like our own, with art or objects passed down for many generations.

The Art Gallery has been transformed into a Boutique Hotel with unique guest rooms and breakfast served daily.

Guests have an opportunity to experience essential luxury in a historic Philadelphia home and neighborhood.

 

Etsy is our online Boutique

Bread n Butter Antiques

- Fine Gifts and Interiors - 

Etsy is a pleasure to work with and it is amazing to see such beautiful items all in one place. There are many talented artists that it is easy to consider this venture more artistic than entrepreneurial.

I am a collector of material culture with a passion for provenance and photography. The Art Gallery is an alternative space to showcase art and objects. We invite artists to display their artwork along with the art and objects in the collection. The Art Gallery emerges from the perfect historical home to showcase our entire collection. Historically inspired interior design with a modern twist of essential luxury.

The BnB Antiques and Art Gallery in Philadelphia is open daily. The facility operates as a full-service Boutique hotel as well as hosting private events, corporate office functions and art gallery tours in historical Philadelphia.

- Restoration Projects - 

For some restoration projects, we use sodium bicarbonate for soda blasting,

a process in which sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is applied

against the surface of the object using compressed air.

 

Here is an example of an antique chair that was restored to its original condition using the soda blasting method:
