Pop Up Retro Sale This Weekend! Don't Miss Out! Mr. Modtomic Dropped By Today But Didn't Have Time To Pillage. Status: Friday AND Saturday!
Last year the Girlfriend and I tried to find this Pop Up "Garage / Estate" Sale but had a little trouble finding it...then got side tracked at a hotel liquidation business where I picked up a couple of great tables. But then the sale "Popped Up" again and again! Well my friends...it has popped up again and I finally found my way there.
I didn't give myself enough time to Shoot the goods, Talk (talked WAY too much!) to the
proprietor AND Buy stuff for myself. My loss could be your gain! I'll probably stop by again
Saturday some time so if you happen to make it by you might get a chance to meet Mr.
Modtomic in PERSON! I Know! WOW, right? I'll be signing body parts and kissing babies...
NO No no...just kidding. But I'll probably drop in, for realz.
You should go anyway. There's LOTS of great stuff there! It's INSIDE so the shoppin' is going
down rain or shine. And like the ads says...not just Inside, but air-conditioned! Oh...but the zip
code isn't correct in the ad. Click here to see a google map of the address. Toni (the proprietor)
says she'll be slingin' the goods between 11am and 4pm both Friday and Saturday.
I barely got to scratch the surface of all the cool stuff here. I just set up quick shots to give you,
my beloved readership, a little idea what to expect. The content is very eclectic with plenty of
vintage modern to keep us 'round these parts pretty happy. If you see anything in these photos
that you just HAVE to Have you might wanna call the phone number in the ad to see if it's still
available and if Toni could maybe put it aside for you. She was as nice as could be so I can't
imagine that she wouldn't. Otherwise you might just wanna get there as she opens up the doors
I was hoping to get to this sale this morning as it opened but the lawn was about a foot tall and
the news was calling for rain off and on the next few days, so I had to mow. Then, 'cuz the grass
was pretty moist, I had to clean up the mower before storing it. Then, 'cuz I was in the zone and
rain was coming, I had to get the grass seed out so the dead spots might go away. I hope it was
worth it. I hope I didn't screw myself out of some great deal! I have a weird condition in that
when the camera comes out, the shopping switch clicks off. I hate looking at pics from far away
antique malls and see a photographed item with tag wondering why I hadn't brought it home.
This happens all to often. At least Toni's Pop Up sale isn't far away! Hope to see ya there.
