This Post Is Not About The Crazy Red Hoop Chair That Probably Caught Your Attention Right Away, But About The Pair Of Hairpin Tray Tables To Each Side Of It. Status: Flea Find For The Booth.
I featured the Hoop chairs way long ago here on Mr. Modtomic. I had three of them but dropped one off at The Shag a while back and it got snatched up quick. One of these day's I'll get around to cleaning the other pair up and plop them in the booth too, for now...it's the pair of hairpin stacking snack tables that are headed down.
We didn't get out to the Wentzville flea this weekend, even though it would have been a perfect
morning for such. Instead, we slept off a wonderful evening of friends, food and drink. We spent a
lovely evening Saturday in the South Grand area having dinner and a tiki drinks at The King & I Thai
restaurant with good friends Nick (of Mid Century Midwest) and his Girlfriend. After the good food
and Strong drink we made our way down the street to Rocket Century to celebrate their One Year
Anniversary. If you haven't been there, let me tell you...it's a lovely and well curated shop and you're
not gonna find a nicer shop keep than Kristina to talk all things vintage modern. And I'm not just
saying nice things 'cuz of all the free Chardonnay I was plied with!
So yeah, I'm apparently not a kid anymore and can't hardly drink anything without waking up with a
raging headache. So Wentzville was out of the question. Sleep was much more important. And
anyway, I still hadn't shown you these great stacking snack / tray tables from last weekends
Wentzville flea adventure yet! These are in such great condition for it's age. No rust at all and the
paint isn't chipping off or anything. They may have been repainted at some point, they look so good.
They are headed to the booth (#5) at The Green Shag Market soon along with some other choice
items that I've got to get tagged up.
I've got some plans in the works to get some sort of apparatus in place to start hanging items up off
the floor. I've been inspired by a few other vendors who are obviously much more clever than I and
are taking advantage of their "air space". Slacker no more...I am jumping on the band wagon and will
soon have even MORE amazing and fantastical items to temp you in my booth space! Maybe as soon
as next weekend even. Stop by and see how it's coming along!
