I'd suspended thrifting, focusing instead on the dozens (ur, hundreds?) of pieces I already have in stock and on redesigning the blog and client's projects. Sales are good and it inspired me to take risks and buy large furniture pieces I don't normally attempt to squeeze into my apartment. They're damn beautiful and fun to stage! Behold the glory of my mid century modern furniture scores:
This shining glass front lawyers bookshelf is resplendent in the setting sun! I've been dying to get my hands on a piece like this and finally found one at a decent price. I'm housing it in the apartment but it's going off to live in Southern Crossing soon. If you're local and would like to buy it, e-mail me!
It is just as damn gorgeous open and airy as it is with the glass doors pulled down (they shut garage door style). I like how the shelves house your books and precious collectibles behind glass like dainty macaroons and treats in a bakery's glass-front fridge.
Another beauty I've been "hiding" from you is this Nutone stereo council, with a stunning mid century modern shape it's a work of art on display as well as a functioning radio, record player, and eight track player! It was photographed in the dark cave-tomb that is my guy's house where it temporarily lives. The photo doesn't show off its full glory.
I love how the record player folds in-and-out for a very streamlined, tidy appearance Again if you're interested, drop me a line! She's a 'beau, I tells you!
And my favorite score from this week, a mid century modern vanity! I've always wanted one of these beauties, and I'll enjoy using it in my room until a customer takes it off my hands. I may be able to squeeze it into my new Southern Crossing booth this April but I bet it'll sell before that.
This vanity came with the beautiful matching side table and the boomerang stool above! So mod, you fly away on it like a hoover car from The Jetsons! The mirror is set behind the piece instead of properly drilled to it with three (scary) precarious pieces of wood. I'm going to assemble it today and follow-up with photos of the vanity fully assembled next week.
A final small house score is this beautiful gold shoe rack. It's got equal mod appeal!
My friend suggested using it to showcase clear glass tumblers in the antique mall booth and I like the idea. Can you think of any other fun uses for it? There's obvious use as a vintage shoe display but I don't sell 'em.
