Mid-Century Modern


  Mid-Century Modern items are flying out the doors!  Flash back to The Brady Bunch, all these pieces are quite collectible right now.  From the clean lines of Danish Modern right down to the avocado greens, oranges and yellow of those days gone by from the 50’s through the 70’s.  Having grown up with these pieces in my parents’ home, I giggle when I see and hear younger folks swooning over them.  They are growing on me again.

There are several pieces of furniture, artwork, lamps, lighting, utilitarian pieces and odds and ends of items that are Mid-Century modern.

When scouting out these findings, it would always be nice to have four heads and eight eyes to be on the lookout!  This modern piece will certainly fit the bill!


Stay cool!  We are keeping the A/C turned way down this weekend.  Stop by for a fresh baked treat and coffee.  Well, maybe not the coffee since it’s warm…but the treats are always popular.

Happy Hunting!

Around The Store Today


Lots of new stuff coming into the store this past week!  In preparation for July 4th, our dealers are bringing in their stash of Americana items.



Just in time for summer are these yellow pottery pieces. 



Our store has a little bit of something for everyone’s taste, style and collections. 



This neon BUD light would be the perfect addition to a man cave, or for someone you know named BUD.  :)




Leslie just brought in this wonderful puppet display for Punch and Judy.  It is a wonderful piece of American Folk Art.





Cheryl has this gorgeous French settee for sale in her space. 




Plenty of vintage Pyrex available and vintage metal kitchen canisters with adorable decals on them.




I love this picture of cherubs that is available for $45.00 (a great price) in Tracy’s section.


New to the store is this cool wood sign from an apple farm here in California.




Be sure to check out our cases as there are tons of treasures for sale there.  Leslie brought in this antique Carnation Malted Milk canister this week. It is in excellent condition and dates back to the 1940’s.


Our next parking lot sale will be on Saturday, July 6th.  Hope to see you there!
