Bookcases, Display & Storage

Korner Street Antiques & Uniquities is now in its ninth year of business and we continue to strive to offer our customers quality pieces for a fair price with the utmost respect for customer service and fulfillment. We hand pick all of our pieces - retrieving most from affluent Victorian estates in Eastern Canada and the East Coast of the U.S.A. - and our rule has always been that the pieces we offer are those we ourselves would proudly display and use in our own home. We do not repair, alter or refinish the pieces we offer for sale. Our pieces are offered 'as is' and in 'as found' condition... most of the pieces we offer are 100 to 200 years old and, appropriately, possess character marks and imperfections but all are as pictured, functional and display nicely 'as is' unless otherwise noted. We are located on the Canadian/U.S.A. border in St. Stephen, New Brunswick, Canada and ship from Calais, Maine for our many customers in the U.S.A., so if you live south of the border, your purchase is easy and as if you were purchasing your item in the U.S.A. Prices listed are in U.S. Dollars. Purchases will be professionally packed and encased in a custom wooden crate (if needed) to ensure safe delivery. We invite you to be a part of our ever-growing worldwide family of customers - many of whom have furnished their homes with treasures purchased from us. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day! GO GREEN - RECYCLE... WITH STYLE!
