Fly First Class with some mid mod themed American Airlines swag

FullSizeRender.jpg

So who knew that if you fly first class and especially first class international that airlines actually procure fabulous little swag bags for you?  I mean, I have not flown in years but still have never held a first class seat!  I discovered a fabulous cache of beautiful little premerger American Airlines swag but what makes this special and of interest to us MCM fans?  These bags were designed and badged by Eames Office and feature the awesome DOTS pattern.  They came in a few variations and are quite small.  They were made to distribute tiny sample sizes of toiletries and comfort items for flyers.  I became obsessed and started to grab low priced pieces.  As they started showing up at my home, I found a massive case of NIP SEALED packs that had all the goodies inside.  So I procured this box for my fans!  I currently have a list for the empty bags I have already so I am certain they will be sold out before I can offer to the public and I am adding to that stash as I go, but my box should arrive maybe end of next week.  I do not want your money until they are here and I can ship right out but I will make a list and fulfill those preorders first.  What I need you to do is email me at malissa@madmodworldvintage.com with the quantity of bags you want, your PayPal email address and I will send you an invoice as soon as they are here, ship out within 24 hours of payment.  This should help me stay organized.  There should be plenty to go around but they make great gifts!!!! I am pricing at $18 shipped, each additional $15.  These are all in grey so no color choices to make.  

I have 60 of these on the way!  New in cellophane with tags and all the goodies inside!  Reserve yours now! *these were probably from 2013ish.  They were the last swag prior to the AA MERGER.

NEW PROJECT: Greek Godess kitschy rain lamp. 

i picked this up a few months back. My husband started working on cleaning it today so we can test it.  

These swanky lights are filled with mineral oil which is pumped up top and follows the fishing line strings down into the bottom.  They are tedious to clean but we are hoping this one will fire up.

In order to get the goddesses and foliage out, you need to be very careful and work it out between the fishing line strands.  They are pretty tight and actually strum like a guitar!  

Dawn detergent is the best for cleaning as it helps break down the oil residue.  This is a dirty job.  The original oil was dried up so at least that was not a mess.

Even the plastic foliage needed to soak in hot soapy water for a while.

Will update more as we move along!  She is going to be awesome after this cleaning and a little love.  Really hoping the motor works.  They can be replaced if needed. ✌️

Hey Heywood!  Love this cute 4 drawer Encore dresser.  It has been refinished to walnut but the finish is excellent.  Sure it can be stripped and saved, but it really is in good shape to use.  If you like your Hey Wake dark, this one is for you!  I will be listing this weekend I hope....still in my vanagon with all this crap weather!

A new research mission, post holiday clearance at booth.

First off, local peeps come on out and save 20% off two or more items in my retail space.  Great holiday finds are still out there waiting so stock up! I will leave them out for a few weeks yet.  Things are heating up at my tax season job so I expect to be quite busy for the next few months.  I will give 20% off the Broyhill set but you have to buy something else to get it.  It is currently my most viewed listing on Etsy so I suspect it will be out of here shortly.  Seriously, buying it local will save you hundreds off my insane low price already.  Most dealers are selling the chairs alone for what I got the whole set priced at and my local price is even lower.  Don’t snooze on this one.

Speaking of income tax....if you have any child tax credits. EIC, pretty much any refundable credit, you will not see a refund until after mar 21st.  Supposedly the Fed will not release any of those refunds until then.   I will hold any item for you with a deposit.  All I ask is to provide me with an expected payment date.
