What We do

We do appraisal and estate services. I charge an hourly fee for appraisals and can give estimates of the appraisal cost. Occasionally, it is recommended that an appraisal is unnecessary and those who are inquiring should save their money.

We offer estate services, including the complete organization and liquidation of an estate in the form of an “Estate sale”.

We also offer light fixture or lamp rewiring. This includes the complete restoration or repairing of most antique and vintage lamps. Mr. Johnson’s Antiques will provide a free instore consultation and some lamps may be too complex to fix for a variety of reasons. *Bringing back an old lamp that is out of commission and making a well-functioning and safer lamp can be very gratifying. Don’t throw away your old lamps! I buy them too, working or not. Often vintage lamps that have been rewired or repaired are more desirable from an aesthetic standpoint and will significantly increase their value.

My buying focus is on items that are most popular in current global antique and collectible market.(please see list of *Items I most want to buy) Two prime examples would be Chinese antiques and designer “MCM” (Mid-century Moderne) items circa 1940’s through the 1960’s. The intention of my shop is to provide such a variety that every individual can find something they deem interesting and worth buying.

We Do Appraisal

We provide and enjoy doing appraisal. I have been successfully appraising antiques in the Pacific Northwest for over 20 years. We offer all types of appraisal that you may need, including: insurance appraisal, probate or estate appraisal, as well as appraisal for lost, stolen or damaged items.

Picture Frames

We have a large selection of vintage pictures. It is important to find the right frame for the right piece of art. Whether a collector or an artist yourself, our collection is worth checking out. Picture frames are versatile: they can be cut down to size, refinished, painted or made into a mirror. Also, buying a vintage frame will save you a considerable amount of money.


Mid Century modern is all the rage and for good reason. Furniture from the 1940s through the 1960s were executed with great skill and attention to design. Mid Century Modern “MCM” style in interior design and decor remains timeless. For this reason we are constantly adding to our collection of MCM and seeking ways of continually procuring more. Please see our “Featured Items” at the top right of the home page to see what is available. Thank you.
