Great Name For A Cool Shop? Funky + Functional. It Certainly Is. Both! Status: Another Ohio Gem!
We had just enough time in Columbus OH to take a peek inside this great little antique mall type shop. Believe me, I would have dragged the Girlfriend all through that town and it woulda gotten dark before we made tracks toward Lake George. Next time. Until then, won't you join me in a lil' tour of Funky + Functional?
Funky + Functional wasn't (isn't actually) a BIG place but we still ended up in there for a good
amount of time. That's cuz the Girlfriend spent a ton of time and a ton of dough on costume
jewelry! She scored big. There was lots of cool stuff that I would have loved to take home too
but it was mostly Big stuff and I really didn't relish the idea of strapping anything to the top of
Frank on the second day of our two week road trip!
Those of you lucky enough to reside in or near Columbus OH won't have to keep a killer desk
with a fabulous Burke chair strapped to the top of your wagon for 10 days should the set tickle
your fancy the way it did mine. There were lot's of great looking Danish style case goods to be
had and that green plastic and wood room divider was pretty cool too.
Sold?! Get it off the wall! Stop teasing! I have two kinda like that mirror shadow box. They're
great for displaying part of the Girlfriends salt and pepper shakers. Those club chairs were
pretty cool but they weren't fabric. They were more of a thick synthetic or vinyl of some sort.
They look like perfect candidates for reupholstering. Then again, if you love Mid Century
Contemporary AND you got kids...!
Love the lamps. Little did I know how many lamps I'd be bringing home on this trip! I hated to
leave these all behind but I more than made up for it in thrift lamp scores! None quite as colorful
as these though. I almost popped on the Witco style African mask art, but you know...you can't
bring it all home!
