So What Did Mr. Modtomic Scrounge Up At The Belleville Flea Market? Just Couple Of Smalls. Status: Need Some Tiki In Your Life?
It don't seem like much, but the stuff ads up! 'Cuz of course I found some more stuff the next day at the thrift store. But this is the lot from the Belleville Flea market, well...this and the Teak / Glass end tables I featured a few days ago.
That's right! I picked up another iron Jax! This one is considerably smaller that the other I have,
but it's pretty cool none the less! I like how it's got chippy red paint that doesn't look chippy on
purpose. This one, like it's larger cousin, is a keeper. These are gonna look so good together...
when I finally get all the extra stuff out of the living room!
I picked this up for the Girlfriend. She loves the plastic / melmac stuff! All of these items were
bought from the same vendor and they had this little guy marked at $7. I thought the 7 was a 2.
After the guy added everything up I balked and offered what I thought it was worth. He balked.
I decided to just get the Jax. The seller relented. I hate haggling.
These are destined for the Parking Lot Sale at the Green Shag on June 2 where I'll be selling lots
of stuff. Aren't they great? They really speak of their time. Dig Retro? I'll have lots of stuff like this
available. I think the wood is Teak and I love that they have relief to them, they're not just flat.
They are little bumped up on the frames but I'm gonna see if I can clean that up before the sale.
