PRESIDENT’S DAY SALE THIS WEEKEND AT ACME!

First, I’d like to ask you to take two minutes to vote for Acme in Northern Virginia Magazine’s “Best of NOVA” poll for 2019, in the “Best Vintage Home Finds” category.  Click on the link or the logo below to cast your vote! 

In observance of Presidents’ Day, Acme is having a sale, with at least 10% to 25% off everything!  Remember to ask about the discount amount on any item in our store, as discounts are not marked.

We are going to occasionally highlight a different Modernica item, to provide a glimpse into the thousands of customizable options Acme has available as an authorized Modernica dealer.  Modernica, based in California, makes a wide range of furniture, ceramics, and lighting.  We have a limited selection of floor samples, along with fabric swatches, wood samples, and fiberglass chips that allow us to work with customers to custom-design the perfect combination.  


Stunning new limited-run “Crackle” finish on Modernica desktop cylinder planter, with wood stand.  We have a couple in stock!
