Our Sunday Thrift Outing Revealed A Couple Of Nice Items. One For My Booth - One For Mother Modtomic's Booth. Status: Available June 2 (at the parking lot sale Green Shag Market blah blah blah)
What is it now...9 days and counting? This little beauty - along with much else - will be made available at the big arse Parking Lot Sale at the Green Shag Market on Saturday June 2. I was gonna bring that china cabinet from Wednesday but it go bye bye today. Not to worry, there will still be plenty of other goodies to be had. Like this purdy lil Quartite Lamp!
Oh, I know...I'm such a tease. You wanna just SEE it already don't ya! What fun is that? I
picked this bad boy up at the Goodwill last Sunday just after a quick breakfast at the Waffle
House. It was an unusually good pickin' Sunday at the Goodwill. I don't usually find much on
Sundays as that's a day that everybody gets out and gets there thrift on.
The perfect trio of retro colors! And the finish is in really good shape. It's so nice to find a lamp
like this at the Goodwill that has survived the process. I don't think that a lot of love is lavished
upon the "old junk" that gets donated. But this, somehow, made it through relatively unscathed!
Even the lampshade made it through undamaged. THAT is amazing! I get worried that I'll crush
the shade just getting a lamp Home! But I was careful...it made it. Messing it up after surviving
so long would just be a tragedy. Ok ok...here. Here's some picks of the WHOLE lamp!
Ooohhh...ain't that just spectacular? Don't ya just NEED this for your living room....bedroom.....
BATHroom? Hey, I'm not here to judge. Put some scratch in my hand and put it where ya need
some light! I think it'll even work with a three way bulb. Oh, and it comes fully equipped with an
incandescent OLD SCHOOL bulb! Won't be long before those are collectible!
So what did I pick up for the Mom-tomic? Well folks, it's a beautiful and comfy vintage chaise
lounge! This was such a bargain and it's right up the Mom unit's alley, there was no way it was
getting left behind.
I got word from her recently that she too has put in a request for a booth space at the Green
Shag Market! Oh snap. The whole Modtomic family is gonna be up in the joint! She's gonna take
this pretty nice chaise lounge and work some crazy Mom magic on it and it's gonna look
AMAZING. Maybe a booth space will open up soon and she'll be able to make it available at the
Green Shag when it's done!
