Brrrr...we here in the St. Louis area are scheduled to receive yet ANOTHER winter storm over the next three days. Yep, 3 DAYS! Up to another foot of the fluffy stuff.

The Rest of the Booty From Yesterday's Estate Sale. It Looks Like a Pearsall Chair, But I'm Not Convinced. Status: Avaiable.
With the help of Illuminate I was able to snatch up this chair at the Midas Touch estate sale yesterday.

The evening went pretty much as planned. Arrived early enough to be there before any sane individual. Sat in the car until bored. Jumped out and pissed off the second person to arrive. Froze until morning.

If this posts, then I didn't come home and I'm waiting outside an estate sale starting at 10am Friday morning. What would make Mr. Modtomic sit outside in the dark all night?

Drag Out The Vinyl. Dig Up Your 45s. Everybody Knows That LPs Sound The Best, Right? Status: My Bad, It Needs A Needle...But It's Available!
Sorry for the tease. I don't have a needle so we can't have a record playin' party. Unless of course you don't mind playing 'em on my modern Numark DJ turntable!

I was poking around RetroRenovation.com today and was inspired by Pam's posting about a light fixture she spotted at an Estate Sale. I decided to drag out some pics from some of the estate sales that I've been to in the past.

Soooo....Tired of Tables Yet? How 'Bout a Cool Black Vinyl Lounge Chair? Status: Hmmm....Available, I guess.
Wednesday, January 19, 2011
Seems like I've seen a bazillion of tables like these in the past and I never paid much attention to the attribution...and of course now I can't find a comparable to save my life. Ain't that just the way it goes?

A Few Weeks Ago a Tornado Ripped Through South St. Louis County, Saturday a Cyclone Made It's Way to North St. Louis County! Status: Available.
I briefly considered adding some food to this vignette, then I was like: yeah right...on my Starburst? Not.

Wow, the cool stuff that ends up on C-list! And really, Thank God (or whatever) for C-list! I can barely remember a world without it.

The great thing about these tables: they not only look great but they can be easily stored in a closet! Pull it out and "bam" instant table!

I've always wondered who Suma was. I'm just glad I found some of their art at the thrift store. I almost sold this once. The Girlfriend put the Kibosh on that!

Apparently I Gots a Thing For Clocks! Here Are a Few Of My Analog Beauties. Status: Tick Tick Tick Tick...
Maybe it's because I have a very "live for now" attitude (which gets me into lots of problems BTW) but I do seem to have some weird thing for clocks.

From "Deep In The Heart Of Texas"! Texasware! Pretty as a Spring Morning. Status: It Is (of course) The Girlfriend's.
Check out those colors. Aren't they just amazing? And the Texasware has a light "confetti-ness" to it.

Remain Calm and Try Not To "Pan"ic...There's More Vintage Kitchenware. Status: Clean Lines and Super Stylish.
That's right, look close and you'll see a $10 price tag on the big skillet. Estate sale snag. The smaller one came from a thrift store.

Sorry for the downer post. We had to put our little bundle of love down yesterday. I've put together a little "tribute" video of some cute pics I had of him.

Got it at the Goodwill quite a while back. Just another pan set to ad to my vintage kitchenware collection. It was covered in dried Bar-B-Que Sauce. At least I think it was Bar-B-Que sauce! I hope it was.

Picked up this amazing vintage modern sewing machine a few years ago. It was lookin' all sad and lonely at the Goodwill down the street just beggin' to be taken home.

Update! 01/07/11 High Resolution Video replaced Lo Res Video! Check it out!
Another diamond in the rough! This is pretty typical of the Antique Malls here in the "fly over's". Unlike BAM in Chicago, you gotta dig a little to find those gems.
