KAUKAUNA – A Fox Crossing vintage and antique furniture restoration company is expanding and moving to a new location in Kaukauna.
Harp Gallery Antiques & Vintage Furniture in Fox Crossing plans to move to a new showroom and warehouse in Kaukauna later this year, the company has confirmed.
“We are proud to announce a move in Summer 2022 to our dream facility,” read a post on the company’s Facebook page.
We will be opening late summer 2022 at 2101 Progress Way in Kaukauna, said Marketing Manager John Melchert.
The property is part of Kaukauna’s Industrial Park North development on the other side of I-41 just east of Highway 55.
There will be a grand opening event when the timeline becomes more firm, however construction timelines are very loose thanks to shortages etc., Melchert said.
The company chose the new site because they outgrew their current building in Fox Crossing. They found their dream facility in Kaukauna and it places us in a high traffic area on I-41.
The Harp Gallery opened in 1985 in Appleton and has developed its expert restoration process that combines the experience of craftsmen from many different backgrounds, including cabinetry, aircraft customization, art, auto restoration and woodworking, according to a company history on its website.
Their mission statement, “Restoring the Past, Preserving the Future,” embodies their process of restoring furniture, art, and more for modern homes, according to the company.
Recycling vintage furniture saves trees, and preserves existing beautiful old wood.
Much of the finest old growth hardwood has already been cut down, and made into furniture years ago.
Refurbishing these irreplaceable pieces substitutes for the cutting down of more mature hardwood trees in endangered forests, according to the company.
“We are looking forward to joining the community and getting to know everyone!” Melchert said.
