Whew...Feast Or Famine! Not Much New Has Been Passing Through The Gate Of Modtomic Central...But Then, I've Been Slackin' Hard. It's Been Cold! But I Got Lucky Sunday Night And Snagged This Great Adrian Pearsall End Table. Status: (Not) Available.
Other than not having much to talk about here on the blog, I'm not too bummed with the recent dry spell I've been having. I've GOT to start moving some of the accumulation that has been building up around here, and when I don't have MORE coming in...well, it just makes it easier to concentrate on the stock on hand. That said, I certainly ain't ignoring the "traps"!
Late Sunday night this little gem of a walnut and glass end table showed up on craigslist and yours
truly was the lucky dog what got to bring it home. It was tough convincing the seller (who listed it at
8:30pm mind you) to venture out and meet me in the cold dark of night. I let them know that I could
only meet them on the weekend since I work so late week days and thankfully they relented. They
hadn't even cleaned it up yet and when I got a hold of it, and I was convinced that there was a chip in the
glass. When I got home though and cleaned it up, what I thought was a chip disappeared! The glass
top is fine, less a few scratches that are the norm for pieces of this vintage.
You might remember, if you you've been a long time reader, that I've got the matching (and
exceedingly hard to find) coffee table. I love the coffee table and it's one of the longest standing
pieces here at The Modtomic Ranch. But now I have a problem. I've got the matching end table, but
nowhere to use it! I've already got a bangin' end table with a built in lamp and magazine rack at the
end of the sofa, so that ain't going nowhere. I'd hate to offer up this lone end table and would much
rather keep them together, but what would I do for a coffee table myself then? I HAVE to have a
glass top coffee table because, well...water rings and stuff. We'll see.
