Time Flies + NEWS!

Hard to believe it's been so long since I last posted! The thing is, when you've been doing this as long as I have, there's just not a whole lot of new stuff going on. I receive very few new consult questions (always free!) these days, as folks take my suggestion and search the blog for answers before asking.

Please do not hesitate to ask if your query is not covered here or on the site. This is what I do! If you aren't sure, ask and I will help.

That said, I want to let everyone know that The Preservation Station has moved shop!

We are now at
301 D & E Commerce Street
Occoquan VA 22125

We are in the rear down the walk if you enter from Commerce Street or enter from Poplar Alley and we are directly behind Cock and Bowl.

Winter hours are Wednesday thru Sunday 12 to 5p.m. (longer on workshop nights)
and by appointment.

In addition to carrying everything we do now:

  • acid free tissue paper in 2 sizes
  • the most amazing, long-lasting lavender
  • pH test pens
  • 3D archival sleeves
  • indicating silica gel in packets and bulk
  • Eucalan wool and fibre washes
  • Sweater care kits
  • Garment Preservation Packs for wedding gowns, uniforms, costumes and quilts, linens and baby garments and memorabilia...
We now also have:

  • antiques furniture and home furnishings
  • mid.century furniture and home furnishings
  • vintage furniture and home furnishings 
 of all kinds!
