Just A Little More Loot From The Weekend Before Last! I Know...So Much Booty From ONE Weekend! Status: Smalls.
I was gone most of last week so I took a bunch of pictures and uploaded them to Flickr before I left. This let me keep posting daily from "the road"...even though it wasn't really "the road" since we flew. I'm so not a fan of flying. I can't bring anything with me to sell or anything with me back home! It's like being bound and gagged!
Thank goodness I had a really good weekend before we left. It was like loading up on carbs
before a marathon! And while I wasn't able to bring much home physically...I did take a bunch
of pics to share with ya later. One particular item almost made me cry to leave behind...and
made me consider renting a truck to drive home! I show you it later though. This post is about
some items acquired BEFORE we left!
Yup. I found another magazine / log rack. I've got to clean it up and maybe shoot it with some
paint to pretty it up but I'll be offering it on craigslist as soon as I do. It's not real flashy but it's
more vintage modern appropriate than most anything you'll find new at the big stores. Maybe
I'll bundle it with some mod fireplace tools that I have available too.
This Aztec Melmac snack / salad set was also a basement score from the estate sale we attended
with Nick. It looks unused. I'm loving it! I know I'm treading on the Girlfriends turf here but
she's glad I snatched it too! It's a little darker / richer color than the ice bucket I posted a few
weeks back but it's close enough.
I picked up this (signed) sailboad sculpture at the Wentzville Flea Market the day I drove to
Columbia Mo. to pick up the Drexel dining room set. You can just see the signature on the lower
rear of the stern sail. I thought it might be a DeMott but the signature doesn't match. I've no
idea who created this. I certainly can't make heads or tails of the siggy! The sculpture is pretty
big too...a little over a foot tall total.
