When longtime antique dealer and reseller Lynn Bonner was approached with the opportunity to do a good deed for New Rochelle Humane Society she said yes right away.
“I’ve been working with the Pet Shelter Alliance for years now,” said Bonner. “A lot of people wanted to donate items [to the New Rochelle Humane Society], but they had no way to sell them. I have a love for pets and I said ‘Sure, why not?’”
Until Thursday, February 28, ten percent of sale items will be donated to benefit the New Rochelle Humane Society. Lynn has also selected two dog themed artworks to discount fifty percent for the effort.
Bonner says lots of people have come by the store to browse, but hopes more will come in and buy before Thursday to help New Rochelle Humane Society.
Bonner actually has two locations: Lynn’s Antiques at 26 Warburton Ave. in Yonkers has been open for more than 20 years and Charley’s Antiques and Used Furniture on 5 S. West St. in Mount Vernon has been open for five.
At both locations, shoppers can found a delightful and rich array of furniture, jewelry and collectibles from a range of decorative eras. Bonner said mid-century pieces are most popular, but the store has a lot to offer for those interested in true antiques or gently used unique items. From bedroom to dining room and living room, shoppers can find well-crafted pieces just waiting to bring charm and character to their homes.
The Bonner family has been in business for generations. Lynn’s father Charley operated a store at the now closed Kimball Theater on Yonkers Ave. and was in business for more than forty years at several locations before he passed away.
Charley’s Antiques and Used Furniture is located at 5 S. West St., Mount Vernon, NY right across the street from the Mount Vernon West train station. It’s hours are Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 914-530-2186 for more details.
