So What Kinda Stuff You Think Mr. Modtomic Will Have At The Big Green Shag Parking Lot Sale This Saturday? Status: Gonna Be An Interesting Weekend!
Last weekend I took Friday off giving me a four day weekend....to Scour The Thrifts! My efforts yielded plenty of smalls for the sale this weekend as well as the mall space (Mr. Modtomic's Area 44? I-"44" roadside treasures?) that I will be trying to start the same weekend! Yikes!
Yeah, I went crazy pickin' little stuff that I can box up and spread out for all the Modtomitrists to
snatch up at the Parking Lot Sale (5733 Manchester Avenue St. Louis, MO 63110) Tomorrow!
Check out these little retro plastic candle sconces. Not a lick of candle wax on 'em. Don't think
they've ever been used! These could be yours! They look pretty rad as is OR they could be
painted a hot color like....red....or....white.
Doing a bathroom / kitchen retro-remodel? You Need This! Not only is it all retro frosted /
patterned glass and chrome...but it even has a three prong outlet! Oh I know...it's not GFCI.
"Retro"-fit it! Or just leave it un-powered, whatever...it's just too cute and in Excellent
Cuppa' Joe? You need a hearty set of McCoy mugs to wrap your mitts around! That '70s drip
edge look is so the thing right now. I heard it makes your coffee taste Soooo good! Well...maybe
that's stretching the truth a little, but You'll LOOK Soooo good drinking from them! Word.
No Bull...this Bovine is sporting Elvis hair! Oh, it's got chipped horns and feet but not only is it
hardly noticeable, the chipped horns add a certain authenticity and rugged toughness to what
is otherwise, well...a glass cow. With Elvis hair!
Not sure if I'll be bringing any of my dishware or bakeware but if somebody actually requests that I
do so, I guess that I have enough of these Salem Biscayne patterned pieces that I could stand to
give up a couple pieces. As a matter of fact, if you are coming to the sale, don't hesitate to make
some requests! I'll see what I can do to help ya out!
Yeah, Saturday we gonna party like it's Nineteen - Sixty - Five! Even though I've already got a
Blue Heaven 1965 commemorative calendar plate, I could never leave another one behind at a
thrift store! This one's available buuuuttttt not so the bakeware. The Blue Heaven bakeware is
tough to find! But if ya need a commemorative plate...I got ya covered! Just be sure to get to
the sale early! Remember, the sale OPENS at 9am! The Green Shag Market opens at 10am.
Oh, and if you need to pay with a check-card or credit-card, I can take them via the Green
Shag Market...but you'll have to pay sales tax.
Hope to see ya'll there! It's gonna be lot's of fun. The weather is looking like it's gonna be
PERFECT with a forecast of 78 and Partly Cloudy! The Mom-tomic is setting up a booth too,
as is Illuminate who I think is bringing a big Danish Lounge style sectional, and the Girlfriend is
promising to bring a couple trays of vintage costume jewelry! There's sure to be an eclectic mix
of stuff there. It's gonna be Epic!!!
