Thrift Haul: Groovy Mid Century Modern Furniture Scores, Yuko-Chan Cat Approved


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.

LIKE IT? BUY IT: Every find in the post is for sale! Send me an e-mail if you want to buy something. Many more new finds will be making their way to Etsy this morning. Also, I have hundreds of items in stock. Contact me if you need anything in particular!

    1. It's going on Craigslist today and perhaps to the antique mall tomorrow if it doesn't sell online. Hope it sells soon, looks like it has a lot of admirers!

  6. That vanity is fantastic! I love mid century furniture. Okay, so we need to talk about your squid chart. I have a thing for cephalopods. Is it for sale?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm obsessed with cephalopods and sea creatures/the sea in general. I bought the cuttlefish anatomy poster (I thought it was a squid at first, too) with gift-money and it's not for sale at the moment. I'd have to sell it for well over $200 because it was expensive so it's probably out of a lot of collector's desired price range. Thanks for your interest though Melissa :)

  10. I love that glass front book shelf!

    This week I actually found an antique store that lets out booths. I also found that there is no way in all of creation to browse an antique store with a 3 year old in tow.

    1. Yep, that's the thing. No bites yet at the higher price range. But they're fun to live with until they sell! These will be the last big, hard-to-sell pieces I buy for a long while.

  17. That mod stereo is aaammmmazing. It makes me just a little sad that I have one of those chain store vintage replica record player/radio/CD player combos. Of course I won't lie. It's hella convenient to be able to burn CDs of my rare record compilations with the replica. Still...that stereo. That's one sexy piece of machinery there.

  31. After we examine how to make http://catandcats.com/ food, to begin with we really need to ask, what's cat food? When looking at how to make cat food we initially think about precisely what materials we want. When you consider commercial cat food, it would be understandable to suspect that making cat food needs to be an elaborate exercise, with unique compounds devised especially for cats.

  38. Matlab Assignment Help helped me to complete my seventh Matlab assignment, which was also the best-performed! It scored 92/100, which I've never scored before on any other assignment/exam in my lifetime. Otherwise, their service was as quick as usual. The delivery was also on time. I'm now requesting to use this same programmer multiple times. He seems the best in Image Processing tasks. Meanwhile, I'll ask for more Matlab Homework Help soon.

  39. I have just come across your post and I believe this is exactly what I am looking for. I want an economics assignment help from a tutor who can guarantee me a top grade. Do you charge per page or does it depend on the
    bulk of the economics homework help being completed? More to that if the work is not good enough do you offer free corrections.

  40. The ardent Programming Homework Help tutor that nailed down my project was very passionate. He answered my Python questions with long, self-explanatory solutions that make it easy for any average student to revise. Moreover, he didn't hesitate to answer other questions, too, even though they weren't part of the exam. If all Python Homework Help experts can be like this then they can trend as the best Programming school ever online.

  41. Hey STATA homework help expert, I need to know if you can conduct the Kappa measurement of agreement. This is what is in my assignment.

  43. Hi, other than economics assignment help are there other subjects that you cover? I am having several assignments one needs an economics homework help expert and the other one needs a financial expert. If you can guarantee quality work on both then I can hire you to complete them. All I am sure of is that I can hire you for the economics one but the finance one I am not sure.

  48. Hey there, I need an Statistics Homework Help expert to help me understand the topic of piecewise regression. In our lectures, the concept seemed very hard, and I could not understand it completely. I need someone who can explain to me in a simpler way that I can understand the topic. he/she should explain to me which is the best model, the best data before the model and how to fit the model using SPSS. If you can deliver quality work then you would be my official Statistics Assignment Help partner.
