From new to old, for us the rule is ‘there are no rules’!

Our goal is to find a home for your favorite piece(s), determine the value
of your estate items or help you find your unique decorating style.  


We are more than a furniture marketplace. We are your décor partner.

The fundamentals of decorating is to buy what you love,
love what you buy and then it will work.

Antiques are the ultimate in going green


Finishes are less toxic, they completed their off-gassing many moons ago and are made with old growth wood and will not add to landfills. Blending several centuries together adds not only movement and energy but excitement and intellect that defines any space.



Something for Everyone


From traditional to modern, antiques to shabby chic, you'll find that we have and can source exceptional choices of furniture, accessories, art, lighting fixtures, rugs and more.

The Skillful Shopper is my first stop when I am shopping for my home. Why pay retail for poorly made boring when there are so many item for resale. Christine’s shop is a treasure trove of unique things. From furniture to art it is always fun to stop in the store and check out the the always changing inventory, especially if you love looking at beautiful things with a history.

Christine knows how to read her clients. She knows just by walking through your home, what works and what doesn’t. She helped me find a dining table that is perfect for our home and lifestyle.

The Skillful Shopper & Christine Utter
We just had a wonderful experience with the Skillful Shopper. We have recently relocated. We contacted the Skillful Shopper to help us with downsizing and clearing out our home in New York. The experience was made easy and less stressful with the great job by Christine Utter Founder of the Skillful Shopper. Moving and relocating can be stressful and it was good to know that we were able to get our home and belongs sold with a profit and what did not sell was donated or cleared out and disposed of in an easy manner, with great care and concern for us.
Would highly recommend Christine Utter at the Skillful Shopper.
