MCM Treasures Collected at Goodwill's 50% Off Day.
Patience Appreciated. Promise kept. Few weeks ago was Goodwill's half-off day. Hit five stores. Returned with bountiful bounty.
Vintage hi-fi credenza stereo complete with turntable. Works. Needs light refinishing and a needle.
Already rigged Airport Express to remotely play iTunes through hi-fi. Able to DJ music from iPhone. Our Mid Century Modern House in Indianapolis has been jamming.
Sourced several lamps.
Danish modern lamp. Now on hunt for perfect shade.
Double-cone accent up-lamp.
Already had white ball lamp. Didn't have stand. Found fondue pot stand. Perfect fit. Illuminates fireplace wall with style. Ingenuity repurposed.
Speaking of fondue pots. Orange one is perfect match to kitchen island.
Scored 50%-off Goodwill-style deal on perfect condition Steelcase desk and credenza.
Unfortunately, desk is too large for our space. Will soon be reselling. Hit us up if you have interest.
Goodwill is not the only source for non-dealer-priced Mid Century Modern furniture in the midwest.
Craigslist also exists as occasional hunting ground. Arc lamp now resides over our plastic folding Tulip Table stand-in.
Target had two 4' x 6' shag rugs, which were promptly combined to create one 6' x 8' rug. Adds a bit of comfort to our construction zone. Holes in wall serve to remind we still have work to do.
This post serves to remind us that vintage modern can be affordable. Tenacity required. Garage sale season starts now. Let us know what treasures you find. If you'd rather stay at home, try the Goodwill online auction site.
Weekend post forthcoming to catch you up on recent home activities. Leaky rubber roof resolved, and we learned something very interesting about our septic system. Stand down wind, and stand by.
P.S. Thanks to all Facebook and Twitter friends. Enjoying you.
