Estate Sale This Morning...Showed Up WAY Early...Third In Line...Drexel Projection Bedroom Suite. Status: So Tired...Three Hours Sleep.
Oh Snap. Mr. Modtomic got up at 6:40am after going to bed at 3am? For this? $695? No Thanks. Dag. Thank God there were a few smalls to be had as well as an interesting joint to photo.
That king headboard doesn't match but I really wanted the rest of this set. But $700? $700?
Oh no...no no no. I've already got the Drexel Projection blanket chest. Having the rest of a
beautiful set would have been great. I was thinking they might, Might want $300 for the set and
that's what I brought with me. Like I said, I was third in line and made a bee line for the
bedroom where this was. I almost wish #1 or #2 would have told me They were after the same
bedroom set so I could have gone home and back too bed.
Check out that wall paper. These folks never saw a wall covering they didn't like. Didn't much
care for the sofa in the little side room upstairs but those depression / vasaline wine glasses
I have a weakness for depression glass but I'm not much into the yellow (or pink...really. The
green stuff glows under a blacklight!). The anodized aluminum lazy susan almost made the cut.
Tables...lights...vignettes! The first is the back porch while the second and the polka dot lamp
were both in the basement. I was just about to snatch up that polka dot lamp but the plastic
shade was a little busted up. Shame. It was otherwise really cool.
More neat stuff in the basement. This is usually where I find the stuff I'm looking for. Most of the
estate sale companies (thankfully) still consider retro, kitschy stuff almost worthless. I love the
(cypress?) paneling around the fake fireplace!
Need some TV trays? Eh, I've seen better. I prefer the metal one to the wooden ones. None of
these were really doing it for me. Pass.
I love the colors of this office chair and the mod looking base...but I just couldn't pull the trigger
on it. I don't need MORE chairs around here! I've even made the Ib Kofod Larsen side chair
available on my craigslist ad!
