The 2016 Flea Market Season Starts Of With A Bang! A Cool Morning Turned Into A Warm Afternoon At The Cornbread "Worlds Largest Garage Sale" And Mr. M Came Home With Some Great Finds. Status: Spring Is Here!
Yessss! What a great way to start the flea season! Well, technically we have already been to one other flea, the swap meet at Six Flags...but that was so early in the season that I consider it a sorta preseason flea. And we didn't find nearly as good of stuff at Six Flags as we did at Cornbread!

After Another Minor Dry Spell, Mr. Modtomic Spent The Weekend On The Road Picking Up Items Off Out Of Town Craigslist Postings. This Jens Risom Desk Was Found In Bloomington Il. But It Was Worth The Long Drive. Status: Available!
Hey Looky! This is the second Jens Risom desk I've come across lately. This one is a little bit bigger than the previous piece. It's more of an executive desk, but it isn't so huge that it becomes ungainly, like the double pedestal executive desk. Not too small, not too big...just about right!

Bar Keepers Friend! Miracle Cure...Or Something Like That. This Stuff Is So Good. Magical Even. Remember These Dorothy Thorpe Silver Rim Bowls I Featured A Few Days Ago? All Cleaned Up And Ready For A Party! Status: Available!
This stuff is so useful. I love my Goofoff...but this stuff is at Least as useful. The silver rim on this chip and dip set was kind of a mess but Bar Keepers Friend polished it right up.

So We Cleaned Up The House For A Party Last Weekend And I "Found" About A Half Dozen Smalls That I'd Forgotten All About! It Was Like A Little Reward For All The Hard Work Of Cleaning Up This Joint. Here's Some Pics Of The Dansk, Frankoma, And Thorpe Bits That Were Hiding Amoung The Detritus. Status: (Soon To Be) Available.
We aren't very good at keeping the house picked up and sometimes we bring things in after a hunting / gathering trip and just drop the bags of goodies on the nearest open flat area. Not very grown up, but at least it provides for a nice surprise later on!

Well, After Another Particularly Dry Spell (I Guess I Should Figure Out If It's Some Sort of A Pattern, Right?) Things Are Once Again Flowing. I Picked Up This Fabuous Chrome And Glass Pace Coffee Table After Work Monday Evening. It's Quite Heavy. Status: Available.
Nice gams, eh? When I found this table my first thought was "Karl Springer" but that turned up nothing with a quick search. Then I remembered Pace! Not a fancy desinger but still a well respected name in the design world.

"Say Kids, What Time Is It?!" If You Recognize THAT Quote Then You Might Have Bought A Wood And Brass Plated Wire Clock Like This Back In The Day! Status: Already Gone!
So, when I picked up the Danish daybed / sofa I featured a couple days ago, the seller asked if I'd be interested in this clock they had on the dining room wall. You Betchya! I can't say no to a beautiful sunburst wall clock.

OK, So I've Been Absent. Two Things, Well Three...Maybe Four. Winter, Vacation, Craigslist, Car. But Looky, I Popped On A Danish Style Sofa / Daybed And It's Already At The Shag! Status: Already Gone.
Man, I hate me some winter. The cold just sucks the life outa' me. Last winter wasn't bad and it hasn't been too bad this year, until January. This is why Mom-tomic moved to New Orleans.
