It's Been A Little While Since We Last Took A Little Look At The Booth Space. It's Gotten A Little Crowded And I'm Just About To Re-Arrange. If You See Something Ya Like Act Quick! Status: Due For A Change.
Yeah, the word "chaos" comes to mind. Funny thing though, I managed to shoe horn the pair of gold vinyl Eames / Miller Aluminum Group chairs in here after the Parking Lot Sale and they sold within two days! ::Shrugg:: Go figure!
Here's some of the new artwork I've found lately. That large sunbather is actually a litho or maybe
a screen print and is signed, dated and numbered by the artist. I'm quite surprised it's still available!
It's in amazing condition for it's age (1974?, can't quite remember) and the fact that it went through
the Salvation Army's donation machine! The pair of more vintage style prints of Italian landscapes
are just regular old prints that I thought were just too nice to leave behind and thought I'd give
them a try.
Gawd, I've had that Danish style swag lamp for-ever! I finally got around to putting it up and
plugging it in...but alas, not at home. I just couldn't ever find a good place for it here so I put a
tag on it and have made it available at the booth. The Broyhill Saga desk might be coming out.
I'm keen on placing the enamel table with chrome legs in here and I don't know if I've got room
My one little set of shelves for display. I need something like this only about twice as tall! Maybe
I just need another set of these stacked up on top of this one. I really don't like to stack the smalls
on top of the tables and such that are for sale as I feel like it gives potential buyers pause. Ever
decided to NOT buy an item because it looked too inconvenient to excavate from an antique
And yet...here you can see lots of stuff sitting on tables, desks and plant stands that are all
available! Remember those books I featured a while back? I put all of them except for the
Playboy Cocktail book up for sale. One that I particularly liked, the House And Gardens
Interior Decoration book, I put a price tag on that I though was ridiculous...still it sold. Dang!
I was kinda hoping it wouldn't sell! But it definitely helps keep me in the green. Since opening
this space I haven't failed to make money. The first month was weak but the Green Shag paid
me and not the other way around! Since then I've had Great months and some just decent
months but I'm sure that after all the expenses are paid (including cost of items, rent and the
malls cut) I've never failed to at least double my outlay, and on average I'm sure I've done Much
better than double!
...And what kind of son would Mr. Modtomic be if he didn't pimp his Momma's joint? She to
has a rough time resisting the pressure to put smalls on bigs. She's recently removed a large set
of shelves that were on the left side of her booth and I think the move has really brightened up
She's got such great taste and doesn't just toss any old thing in here. It really is a nicely curated
collection of items. Right now Restoration Hardware is in kind of a Greyge mode but my Mom's
style smacks of what perhaps might end up - in part - in their Spring catalog.
And...AND! She does slip covers! Surprised at how much that sofa will cost to have re-upholstered?
Have it slip covered at a fraction of the price! You can WASH a slip cover! Tired of the look of your
dining chairs? Have 'em slip covered! Did I mention...you can WASH the slip covers.
