In 1973 I graduated from Seattle University with a degree in Education. I taught school for several years, but the call to fulfill my creative nature and independent desire lead me to open my own business. With a love of history, art, architecture and all things old I entered the antiques business in 1975. The early years were full of learning, adventure, growing and building.
Being mechanically inclined and a hands on person, I became a student of repair, restoration, artistic expression and developed an eye for old beautiful things. The more I traveled, the more proficient I became and my ability to recognize quality increased.
Once my two daughters Theresa and Tanja became old enough, they too became part of bogart, bremmer & bradley Antiques and the three of us would canvas the United States for treasures that suited each of our personalities. Several times a year we returned with a 25 foot truck full of furniture, lighting, rugs and home decor of all types. Once unloaded we proceeded to meticulously repair, refinish, restore and clean each item before placing it in our 3,000 square foot showroom.
Over three decades have passed since I opened bogart, bremmer & bradley Antiques on the corner of 80th and 15th Avenue NW in Seattle. Now I am entering a different phase of my life and business; “semi-retirement” is what I call it. I am pleased to offer the same quality goods and services online and by appointment, Monday through Saturday.
I invite you to view my website for an ever-changing display of inventory.
