Back In Booth 307...It's Looking Pretty Filled Out Now, Don'cha Think? I Had Just Enough Time To Bring In And Tag Up A Car Load Of Goodies Today Before Work. By This Weekend I Should Have The Booth Even More Repleat With Vintage Modern Goodness. Status: Joy!
I found a nice line of craigslist paydirt this morning on the east side of the Mississippi and was able to fill the back (and top!) of Frank the Focus Wagon. I got all that done early enough to then tool straight over to the Creve Coeur Antique Mall and drop some of it off in my booth / shop before work.
I only dropped off four of these West Elm leather and chrome clam shell chairs, but I picked up a
total of eight. Yes, eight of these plus a couple other items all in the back of Frank! Some of the
other four chairs that I didn't drop off need a little cleaning before prime time but they're all in
excellent condition it seems...and how about that Chartreuse color?!
The bench didn't make into the back of the car but the eight West Elm chairs, three Tolix style chairs
and the pair of IKEA nesting tables all were able to be squeezed in. Good thing, 'cuz I wasn't keen on
leaving any of it behind. Like I said, I even resorted to tying that bench to the top of Frank! Luckily
the Tolix style steel chairs stack neatly and I was just barely able to wedge them into the front
passenger seat. You gotta do what you gotta do!
