Certificate of Authenticity
Name: Online marketplace Mercantile.
Launch Date: February 2012.
Owners: Callie Jenschke and Nicki Clendening, who co-founded NYC interior design firm Scout three years ago.
Contents: Twenty-five pieces of one-of-a-kind furniture, antiques, and artwork culled from the duo’s dedicated global flea market shopping. They hone in on eclectic items with world-roved wear and tear (or those that look “loved,” in their words). See: a decorative African headdress crafted from colorful feathers (pictured); an antique geometric-patterned Turkish rug; an elephant-legged carved rosewood side table from India.
Expiration: When one of the items sells, the girls replace it immediately with another treasure.
