Visit Hartong International for antiques, fine art and vintage items.  We sell unique handpicked items from both North America & Europe.  Every item we sell has been cleaned, preserved or carefully refurbished to retain originality.  We put an exceptional effort into offering items, which have been handled with a great deal of care.  At Hartong International, we have a passion for antiques, fine art & vintage items, so we only offer the best in service and go to great lengths in making sure you receive exactly what you see offered on our site.  Our attention to handling makes for a stress free shipping experience.  

We originally started our business in Kenilworth, Illinois.  In the spring of 2011, we moved the business to Massachusetts.  Indeed a wise move, as we have greater access to older antique furnishings, lovely original art and very interesting vintage items.  Along with the move, we expanded our business by acquiring a larger studio space, with more room for creating a complete collection.  We now have greater access to receiving shipments from Europe and all of New England to hunt for the items which our clients and customers desire.  

For a wider selection of our inventory, please visit our Etsy shop.  We put most of our smaller items on Etsy.  You will find many more vintage items within this shop.  

Coming soon to Hartong International, we will be partnered with Second Shout Out.  SSO is a New York City based site, dedicated to offering a vintage lifestyle, with anything from classic 1950s European cars to unique antique furnishings and vintage technology.  Please check the site often for updates.  It’s an exciting way to offer the best in taste and aesthetics from the past for modern living.

We sincerely look forward to serving you!

Please feel free to contact us, with any questions you may have.  If you happen to have a specific antique or vintage item you must have, but don’t see it on our site, email us with details. We frequent a lot of estate sales and have priceless contacts to other dealers in the USA and throughout Europe, so it’s likely we can find what you are looking for, if we don’t have it.  Our inventory is also much larger than what we have listed.  It’s taking us time to catalog and list every item.  Check our site often, as new acquisitions are listed every couple of weeks.

The Fountain Square Arts Festival is one of Evanston’s top events of the Summer season. It runs from 6/27/09 to 6/28/09. The hours are from 10am to 6pm. It’s a free festival with an optional $5 donation.

Sunday’s weather is predicted to be pleasant with plenty of sun.  I can’t think of a better way to see a multitude of artists with fine art for sale.  I’d highly recommend having a look. For more details, click here.

Hans Hopfer has created a very cool line of furniture for rochebobois. Reminiscent of a 1960s California conversation pit, this line of home furnishing looks to fit the part of being used to entertain in a sophisticated manner.  Somehow I can’t see sitting back watching a hockey game, eating a pizza on these sofas, but they are made for cheeky smart social gatherings. Better make sure to get the Jackson Pollock’s out of storage. Here’s a link to the rochebobois website.
