More Fun Stuff From Treasure Aisle Antique Mall. This Place (Almost) Always Delivers! Status: Nice Selection.
I can't remember the price on this set of Butterfly Chairs but it wasn't quite the crazy bargain that I scored a couple months back at the South County Antique Mall, but just FINDING these in usable shape is tough so it was cool see a pair of them here on Big Bend.
All of this great stuff is from one booth space in Treasure Aisle Antique mall. I met the seller a
few weeks ago when he was rearranging his wares and moving some stuff to another booth in
the mall but I can't remember his name. We've run into each other here and there before and
he's a nice fella. He's definitely got my taste in stuff nailed! Lighted Globes, Vintage Modern
Credenza, Butterfly Chairs, Tiki Mugs...I could go on but you can see for yourself! It almost
looks like I filled this booth!
Of course there's no reason to limit your hunting and gathering to just one boothspace! There's
plenty of booths that have a little Vintage Modern sprinkled in among the standard antique mall
fare. This is one of the reasons I love the antique malls around here. Many of the sellers of the
more common antique mall wares have no love for the Vintage Modern items but will still stick
them in their space if they happen to get them. They just want to make a buck off of the items
and aren't concerned with top dollar it seems and just want the space back to sell the stuff they
love. Works out good for everybody! But you DO have to work a little harder for those deals.
Of course that doesn't mean that every cool Vintage Modern piece you suss out of an otherwise
very Victorian looking booth is going to be a steal! Value is value and lots of sellers know it!
Some are so eclectic that pinning down their style is impossible and they seem just know a little
something about everything. I'm far too focused for that! And for real, pricing a lot of this stuff
is a game of guesswork mixed with a little research.
