We've been working day & night trying to get MODKID HQ all set up, but of course, work keeps getting in the way (not complaining here!). The other day as I was walking around downtown I came across Neighborhood Thrift unloading a truck full of Mid-Century Modern furniture they had acquired that day from an estate sale. I could've fully furnished MODKID HQ (and my home) in these things since I love, love, love Mid-Century style, but I had to be selective. Here are a few things I picked up...
This awesome chair and matching ottoman!!! Oh, I love it so much!
Here's a view from the other side. We also bought that super Mod side table cause it seemed like they all wanted to play together so well. ;)
I picked up this 1950's solid wood frame full-length mirror to use in one of my dressing rooms. Love the simplicity of the frame.
And, yes, this vintage Singer is definitely NOT Mid-Century (more like turn of the century!) but I had to get it because it was $5.00 (yes, FIVE DOLLARS!) I about passed out when I saw the price tag. Anyone know how to find out the year on these things? I've looked everywhere on it. By the way, you will see this beauty pop up in lots of new catalog photography (and in the book!) It makes such an awesome photo prop. :)
The last couple of weeks at MODKID HQ have looked a little like this...
Yes, folks, those are all pattern boxes!
We definitely have our work cut out for us. But, it's oh, so much fun!!!
Stay tuned in the next few days as the BIG REVEALS start to pop up here on the blog. We have 4 new Spring 2011 sewing patterns to reveal, as well as the new Spring fabric collection and some exciting new products that I promise will not disappoint!!! I know, I know... patience, my dear! I'm workin' on it...
