I'm Not Much Of A Morning Person But Sometimes Waking Early Can Really Pay Off. Being On Craigslist When This Pair Of Richard Schults / Knoll Outdoor Tables Popped Up Was Just Preparation Meeting Opportunity. Status: Available / Project.


These look a hot mess, but when you've done enough research into vintage modern design they are instantly recognizable as being a Knoll product designed by Richard Schultz.  They are in fact the 1966 line of outdoor tables in aluminum with porcelain steel tops.  Tables worth taking a second look at!

Totally Had Something Else In The Que For Today's Post, Then I Went To The Flea Market This Morning. I Found Cool Looking Steel Chest Of Drawers And Spent The Afternoon Cleaning It Up And Taking It To The Time Machine Antique Mall. Status: Already Gone!


I almost passed on this chest this morning. It's big and heavy and I didn't have Frank (the Focus wagon), instead opting to take the Girlfriend's GTI Rabbit named "Jack". I wasn't keen on man handling this into the back of Jack all by my lonesome...but in the end, I got it done.

Another Domino Mobler Teak Desk? Why Yes...Yes Indeed! I Can't Pass Up An Opportunity To Drop One Of These Fantastic Teak Beauties In My Booth At The Antique Mall Of Creve Coeur. Status: Available


A sizable hole opened up in my booth a couple of weeks ago and up until this weekend I've been unable to fill it.  But, as we all know...when it rains - it pours!  And rain & pour it did today while unloading Frank!

Well, In Case You Haven't Heard Yet, I've Expanded Once Again. Now You Can Find Mr. Modtomic's Available Wares In St. Peters Near The Mid Rivers Mall! We Stopped By The Brand New Time Machine Antique Mall Sunday And Walked Out With 100 Sq. Ft. More Booth Space! Status: Open!!!


Technically, The Time Machine Antique Mall in St. Peters won't have it's grand opening until September 1st, but they are open to the public already and there are a number of vendors up and vending already...including yours truly!  I rented a spot Sunday morning and managed to get some select pieces in there Sunday afternoon.

Another Mod "Live Edge" Coffee Table Mash-Up...Though This Time In Walnut Instead Of Cypress. This Was A Project Many Months In The Making. Status: Already Gone...From The New Place!


We spent our morning Saturday over at the Belleville Flea Market...but other than the powdered sugar from the funnel cake, I came home empty handed.  Where I DID find some cool stuff was the Litchfield Il. antique and flea market the previous weekend!

No, It's Not (As I Had Hoped So Hard For) A George Nelson Bubble Tension Pole Lamp, But Had Howard Miller Ever Produced A Tension Pole Lamp With A Nelson Bubble Shade...This Is Perhaps What It Would Have Looked Like. Status: Keeper.


We picked up this fantastic piece of lighting over the weekend at an estate sale that the Girlfriend had been made aware of through a friend.  She actually spotted it first, but that's only because she went through the front door first.

Lord, Sometimes It Takes Me Forever To Get A Project Done. This Pair Of Teak Nesting Tables Have Been Super Patient Waiting For Me To Refinish Them For Over A Year! Status: Done And Available @ Time Machine Antique Mall.


We went to an all "Mid-Century" auction quite a while back wherein I purchased a few select items, all wanting for a bit of love.  This pair of teak danish modern nesting tables was one of just a few lots that went cheap enough for me to bring home, but they were a mess.

I'm Such A Sucker For The Bicycles Of My Youth. I Only Actively Look For Mid Eighties BMX / Freestyle Bikes...But These 20" Schwinn Stingrays Were THE Bikes Of My First Years Of Personal Freedom. Status: Available.


It's pretty amazing that a Vintage 1978 kids bike is even still around much less still functional, but (except for a blown rear tire and tube) this one is probably ready for another 37 long years of service!
