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.

We all know the value of home improvement, but many homeowners overlook one of the most important factors in a homes worth. Landscaping can add significant value to a property. Start with a design that uses logic, to create usable outdoor space. Features are really important in landscape. Ponds, outdoor rooms, sculpture, fountains, terraces, distinctive trees, creative planting and tasteful paving are all important. Quality is a must.

It’s not cheap to have a designer landscape but neither is the cost of owning a home. So why not pay for it, enjoy it and see it as a worthy investment.

According to The Boston Globe, just having a landscape can add 12.7% to your property value. A sophisticated and functional garden can tack on 42% more to your home’s value.

Mature plants, spacious patios, and other outdoor features can all add value to your property.
