Hello, my name is Kurt Costello and I am a Certified Professional Appraiser. I am also a collector of antiques and decorative art with a passion for provenance and photography.
Bread n Butter Antiques, LLC has several lines of business:
- Valuations – Antiques and Decorative Art
- Antiques & Art Gallery – Philadelphia, PA
- Bed & Breakfast – Philadelphia, PA and Millsboro, DE
Bread n Butter Antiques, LLC was recently assigned a D-U-N-S Number. Dun and Bradstreet collects data from thousands of sources and puts it through a rigorous quality process before it creates a company file and assigns a DUNS number.
BnB Antiques & Art Gallery in Philadelphia features amazing examples of why it is important to take our time and always consider the possibilities to avoid pollution. For example many clean out services simply throw everything away. With Antiques and Art, the opportunities for recycling are endless. We help Antiques and Art find their way into new shops and happy homes around the world. BnB Antiques is excited about an item from our collection that was recently procured for a museum in Hong Kong.
Family Heirlooms are an important part of history. As a Director Member at Winterthur Museum, I am working diligently to utilize the museums educational information and resources to ensure precious historical items are saved for future generations.
BnB Antiques Latest News Update:
- In 2019, BnB Antiques added a new bed and breakfast location with luxury camping accommodations in Millsboro, Delaware. Our new location is within walking distance of the Indian River.
- In 2019, The BnB Antiques Pop up Shop in Milton, Delaware falls under our Valuations Department. The Talley Family has been from Delaware for over 330 years. Any family that has recorded their history for more than 300 years is significant for the purposes of conservation and preservation. Perhaps items that have historical significance can be saved from being discarded or sold at a yard sale. Without a professional valuation, there is a risk that some important items could be lost to history. Estate Sales are another way to accomplish this objective; however they often focus on liquidation of assets for monetary purposes. Our focus is always on conservation and preservation of family history for educational purposes.

My friend in Milton wanted to downsize and so I went over to help out. His family has been from Delaware for more than 330 years so visiting is always an educational experience. We enjoy spending time together as farmers have great stories and they know how to fix everything.
Downsizing can be difficult at any age. What to keep and what to toss is probably on everyone's agenda at some point. I wanted to come up with a clever way to help out. Instead of the traditional estate sale we got a party tent and opened a little pop up shop where he could sell anything from his collection.
His home is near a local Wildlife Refuge and certainly a beautiful place to visit. We set up our canvas tent in the yard facing the vineyard and decided it was time to go glamping. We have found a lot of fun stuff at the pop up shop to fill up our glamping tent, and sometimes we enjoy a campfire under the stars roasting marshmallows.
My friend is having a good time and downsizing in the process. It can be hard to let go of things but perhaps a little easier when something is going to a good home. Giving away a toy to a little boy or selling a fishing pole for a dollar to a neighbor going fishing is fun.
The best part is meeting people who live in the community as well as visitors. There are not really any price tags in the pop up shop because my friend is 82 and the rule is that he is allowed to sell items for any price he desires or give stuff away if he likes. We wanted to say thank you to our customers who came by even when the temperature was 100 degrees. We hope you enjoy pictures of our pop up shop and glamping adventure.
- In 2019, BnB Antiques added a new line of business – Delaware Notary Public - Commissioned independent Delaware Notary Public, approved and authorized to perform notarial acts in the State of Delaware.
- In 2020, we are adding a third bed and breakfast location with luxury camping accommodations... more information coming soon!
