So, Saturday I got out of town and went to an estate garage sale (where I ended up with more than I wanted due to the way that they were selling things) and an antique mall / flea market.
The things that I'm sharing today are from the antique / flea market. This store had some really good inventory. There was even one whole booth dedicated solely to mid-century stuff, and it was a big booth, one of the biggest in the store.
Here's what I found, that didn't come home with me. Sorry for the photo quality - my cell phone doesn't do the best, but you get the idea.
This great pair of lamps was, I believe, $10 (I've slept since then). Very interesting, and I had to fight my lamp buying compulsion, but I succeeded. I just came home with the picture of them.
I loved this swivel rocker. The fabric was perfect, not a flaw anywhere. It was very comfortable too. When I lifted the seat cushion to see if there was a manufacturer's tag I even found that it still had the original matching arm covers and head rest cover, also in excellent shape (I didn't find a manufacturer's tag though). Now, while I loved this chair, I don't need another vintage chair. I need a couch. Especially since I just bought that great mid-century Kroehler chair last week. I hope that this gold rocker finds a good, loving mid-century minded home though. Asking price: $70.
This is where some of my photos didn't turn out too well (they looked good on the little screen on my phone though). This is a black panther television lamp. I believe that it was priced around $30. Great deal.
This one's for Mick. This lovely lady is also a television lamp. She wasn't very photogenic though, as you can see. Too bad, she was really neat. She's at the large booth filled with mid-century finds. I can't remember her price for sure, but it was somewhere in the $45 - $50 range. Sorry, I don't know how much the cool little poodle tray behind her was, I just noticed it while writing this post. Wonder how many other potentially great finds I miss?
There was a pair of these great doors. I'm sure that they hung next to each other for a double wide doorway. No door handles on either one. Maybe they came out of a mid-century church, or something similar. I don't get the feeling that they came out of a house. They were priced at $45 each.
Finally I found a pair of vintage barkcloth pinch pleat drapes. They had great colors in the pattern, purples, grays and greens on the off-white background. Another thing that I can't remember the price on for sure, but I think they were in the $40 - $50 range.
Stay tuned tomorrow and I'll share some of the things that I found for myself (and I'll even include a picture of all the stuff that will have to go in my next garage sale thanks to that estate sale).
Have a fantastic Monday!
