Speaking Of Nick (Armadillo), We Spent Saturday Morning Waiting In Line (#s 4-7) For An Estate Sale. Status: Pillaged.
I almost decided to forgo the photography of this estate sale...and still only shot the basement and a little of the garage. The wallpaper above is what sealed the deal. I HAD to at least share THAT with ya! There were some other interesting things to behold as well. Let's look inside.
This vintage 1960s Westinghouse fridge was one of the big draws for Mr. Modtomic and
The Girlfriend to this beautiful Saturday morning estate sale. We certainly didn't need to get
up before dawn and wait for hours to have first crack at it but since Nick was going to get
there super early to snatch some specific goodies for himself, getting there early wasn't too
tall an order.
We were really hoping that the fridge was in better condition since it would have looked too
cool in our kitchen. But alas, it had a note on it saying that it didn't get cold. Too bad. Well,
actually...whew! I wasn't actually looking forward to moving it to our home. Lot's of work,
that. But it wasn't a bust. Oh no! We all scored lots of loot. But we'll see that stuff later. Here's
some of the retro stuff that was lurking in the basement.
Hey, Dave...does that black chair look familiar? I didn't see a tag on this one either. There
was lots of Retro to be had down here in the basement. I was the first person down here as
everybody else was fighting over all the danish modern American of Martinsville upstairs.
This wasn't the sale of the century or anything. There was some great danish modern dining
stuff that got snatched before any of us made it through the front door but I wasn't looking to
bring that home anyway. I'm all stocked up (with better stuff) at the moment. There was some
artwork that of danish cats that I would have loved to get but I saw those get snatched before
I even took a step toward the door!
But no big deal. Nick did good, despite having to move his vehicle literally seconds before the
doors opened. I also got some great stuff from the basement as well as one of the coolest items
from the danish dining room that somehow got missed by the first people in line. The Girlfriend
got some jewelry and we all had fun hanging out together. It was a good day! Hope yours
