Located in the heart of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, Silla Fine Antiques is located at 5704 Roxbury Rd. Suite B., Shippensburg, Pennsylvania and is owned and operated by my wife and I by appointment. We opened shop in 2006 in Maryland and eventually moved from Southern Maryland to our current 3200 square foot shop in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania in July of 2013.
If there are specific items you are seriously interested in and would like to look at in person, just email us and we will set up an appointment to have you drop by to look at a what we carry in person.
By not supporting a retail storefront, we can operate without the personnel costs and storefront overhead incurred by most galleries, which allows us to accept offers our pieces significantly lower than our competitors - unlike many galleries and retail stores, we actually encourage you to Make an Offer. Every transaction is different, costs varying depending on where an item is going, what form of payment, terms (i.e layaway, etc.) and whether we've worked with you in the past so by making an offer we can tailor the price discussion to your specific situation. Don't hesitate to place an offer on a piece you are in love with - it is worth the question!
What makes Silla Fine Antiques different than other antiques stores and dealers?
Operating entirely online, we must present our items in a very different way than galleries and stores. The traditional antique store or fine art gallery loosely describes pieces online with a few pictures, using their website or online offerings as a way to draw business to their physical location. They will generally provide a disclaimer suggesting that all items be viewed in the gallery prior to purchase. We are quite the opposite.
Striving to provide you every possible detail to assist in your purchase from the comfort of your home, we provide all verbal and photographic documentation upfront with accompanying Condition Reports. These condition reports are our best assessment of each piece, but are arrived at with careful study and attention to detail. And they are backed up with our 14-day return policy, guaranteeing you will be pleased with your purchase and that it will arrive exactly as photographed and described.
Due to image limitations of Ruby Lane (only nine images are able to be uploaded), we offer a slideshow of every single item upon request by email. We strive to have the most comprehensive photography of our pieces of any dealer on the internet. With anywhere from 20-150 pictures of every piece in our collection, we work hard to ensure you can see every detail, flaw and blemish. Almost 99% of our sales occur over the internet. If you are not familiar with purchasing complex and valuable works of furniture and art, it can be somewhat intimidating to purchase without physically seeing it and touching it. However, in our experience we've found that great photography is a more accurate and less distracting way to evaluate a piece than to visit it in person. Our clients have affirmed this regularly to us, that the dozens of pictures actually show more than they would ever think to look for. Because lighting is clear and awkward angles are made comfortable, differences in oxidization become noteworthy and close ups bring out the handcrafted nature of objects. It is difficult to turn a tall chest upside down in a cramped antique store to examine the blocking and even quality of the oxidization - but it is imperative to do so prior to purchasing! We've worked hard to ensure each page allows you to completely inspect what you are interested in to ultimately be comfortable buying it over the internet.
Finally, buying with us is guaranteed to be easier than shopping at your local antique stores. Not only because you can quickly review our inventory to find the perfect piece, reading through the dialogue on each piece without feeling like you are bothering a busy shop owner, but also because we offer seamless door to door delivery service with nearly zero effort required on your end. Simply purchase the piece, answer any questions we may have regarding delivery information, and be ready to answer the phone when the driver contacts you to arrange delivery.
We hope you will give us the opportunity to show you a first class online shopping experience in bringing one of our fine antique selections to your home.
