NJ Nan's Antiques - at the Rhode Island Antiques Mall
 NJ Nan's Antiques
NJ Nan's is an antiques business located on the main floor of the Rhode Island Antiques Mall, in Pawtucket, RI.  Nancy had been selling quality antiques to the wholesale and retail market in New Jersey for more than 25 years before relocating to Massachusetts in 2010.  She's adjusting to the market and buyers in New England and still makes buying trips to NJ.
A turn of the century mirrored silverplated plateau, displaying a hand tatted, packaged, vintage hankie, a spring circle pin, vintage 1960s bead earrings, a small oval jewelry casket, a leaf shaped perfume pin, a goldtone bird pin, a chunky goldtone bracelet, and several vintage compacts.
Nancy started in the business selling at the well-known, semi-annual Ocean Grove Flea Market in Ocean Grove, NJ.  The next step was exhibiting and selling at local antiques shows.  Her involvement grew when Nancy joined the Summit Antiques Center in Summit, NJ as a full time dealer in 1999.  Over the years she became a part owner and part time manager of the center, and soon started an estate sale business that has been very successful.
Nancy developed a loyal and enthusiastic customer base in New Jersey for her retail antiques business and her estate sale management business -- and she is doing the same in Rhode Island.  NJ Nan's is known for a large selection of high quality, fun and unusual antiques and collectibles at value prices, and honest, professionally run, and profitable estate sales with positive results for her clients and the buying public.

Please take a look at some recent photos from NJ Nan's space at Rhode Island Antiques Mall. 
Several gilded metal photo frames and a Waterford crystal dish displayed on a 1940s pressed glass perfume or dresser tray.
This sweet antique English mohair bear just sold.  When I received him he needed a little extra stuffing and some stitching, but I couldn't resist the bright blue eyes!  I always have a nice selection of bears and dolls in my space and apparently quite a few of my buyers share the same passion!
These are a few of the Steiff animals I have in my space:  A large mohair colorful drake (duck), SOLD, Slo the turtle,SOLD, a pink fluffy chick, an unusual large Steiff rhino, a vintage (not Steiff) chenille puppy with shoebutton eyes, SOLD, Wittie the owl, SOLD, a small yellow duckling, SOLD, Coco the monkey, SOLD, a large Chimp in red overalls, 1 large and 1 small Bazi beagle, a small boxer and (not shown), a large and small Nagy beaver, a Zotti open mouth teddy bear  and a sleeping Zotti bear, as well as a new Steiff original bear with tags, and a new Steiff blonde bear with tags.
This is a sweet, little Victorian oil on board.  Unsigned, in period frame, very well done. SOLD
This is an outstanding display of hard to find antique German bisque dogs: spaniels, pugs, bulldogs, greyhounds, etc. nestled in with some antique German snowbabies, a pair of English Staffordshire spaniels (sold), a glass and pottery antique English Red Riding Hood figure (sold), an antique German glass Christmas ornament with a house on one side and a star on the other, and sterling silver serving pieces.
I LOVE little dolls!  Here's a selection of various types of miniature, collectible dollies. Most of the dolls are German bisque dolls from the late 19th/early 20th c., but there are also frozen Charlotte type penny dolls in the foreground wearing simple crocheted dresses, Black Americana dolls, dollhouse dolls and small composition dolls.


Above are a few photos of my vintage and antique holiday collectibles: Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Thanksgiving,  and 4th of July.
Below are two photos of my constantly changing jewelry selection which includes both fine and costume jewelry and styles ranging from Victorian and Edwardian to recent sterling silver and mod 60s/70s looks!
