Usually It's The Weekend When All The Good Scores Go Down But Thursday And Friday Were Pretty Darn Great This Week Too. Thursday Provided Mr. M With This Beautiful Drexel Projection Dresser. Status: In The Booth @ Creve Coeur Antique Mall!
What was with the names of all the contemporary furniture lines in the '50s and '60s? Perception, Perspecta, Planner, Perimeter, Predictor... Well, this one is Projection by Drexel. You'd think the marketing geniuses would want their name to Stand Out From as apposed to Being Confused With.
Anybody else have a hard time keeping all the names and brands straight? It's a tough job! Thank
god we got smart phones now, otherwise I'd have to carry a big notepad with me everywhere.
Anyway, Mr. Modtomic took off work early Thursday and met the Girlfriend in Clayton for a nice

another c-list find that I had procured while At work Thursday. I had made arrangements with the
seller to meet at 9am but she had let me know that any time in the AM was good for her. Still, I like
