suzsanna Goodwin’s The Perfect Find, specializes in art and larger pieces. The demand for Zsuzsanna’s inventory isn’t just local, she ships to the west coast, the Carolinas and even sent a container full of Ralph Lauren styled home furnishings to Argentina last year. “Customers love the immediate gratification of consignment shopping as well as the novelty of many of our items. You won’t find our inventory from traditional retailers.” Two of her more unusual sales featured a pair of life-sized bronzed Doberman pinschers that once adorned the entrance to the Louvre and a collection of signed pencil drawings from Gaston Lachaise whose frenzied creative process involved detaching drawings from his sketch pad and dropping them to his studio floor where he’d inevitably leave his own footprints on the originals. Interestingly, the drawings with Lachaise’s footprints fetch the highest prices. Zsuzsanna finds many of her best items from private estates in the ultra-exclusive enclaves surrounding Locust Valley including Laurel Hollow, Centre Island, Oyster Bay Cove, and Mill Neck. “One of the best parts of the business is helping the wonderful objects that had a rich history find a second life with a new owner that will appreciate them and continue to add to their story. I believe there is good karma in all this.” 53 Birch Hill Rd, Locust Valley www.theperfectfindconsignment.com 516-200-5550
