by Bruce Johnson As I mentioned earlier, Leigh Ann and I have been remodeling the lower level of our split-level, 1972 ranch house. Naturally, there was nothing Arts and Crafts about this house when it was constructed, but twenty years ago a previous owner did an extensive upstairs remodeling, adding a rough-hewn granite exterior with cedar trim, hardwood floors, a green tiled fireplace, and oak woodwork. Not so with the downstairs. But we lived with it for fifteen years, first waiting for Blake and Eric to leave for college, then trying to decide just how far to …
Original Date of publication January 19th, 2016 Ask any serious Arts and Crafts furniture collector, dealer or expert what is the rarest of the Arts and Crafts antiques, and the most savvy will have the same answer: any piece in its original, unrestored finish, with its original, unpolished hardware, without any repairs or replaced parts, and, if applicable, with its original upholstery — all in great condition.

We are currently in the process of collecting, organizing, identifying and displaying on this website as many Arts & Crafts shopmarks as possible. And like our Reference Library, we need your help. While we have documented the shopmarks of the major Arts & Crafts firms, we need for you to email us a photograph of any shopmarks you have from lesser known firms, along with a brief description of the piece.
As both a collector and a researcher, I have often wished there was one site where every book ever written on the Arts & Crafts movement was listed. Now that place exists. Together we can compile on this website a list of every book of interest to Arts & Crafts collectors. All you have to do is pull some of the books off your bookshelf (go for the less obvious ones – and check below for duplicate entries) and email me the title, author, publisher and most recent copyright date. I will sort them by category and list them here so that anytime you or anyone else wants to research anything relating to the Arts & Crafts movement, you will start your search here.
