Vera Neumann designs reissued

Great news! F Schumacher, whom I have a trade account with, just released their latest line of fabrics and low and behold, Vera!  As a Big fan, I am totally stoked! I immediately ordered samples and they just started showing up.  I will be placing an order and welcome the opportunity to hook you up.  It is only available to purchase to trade account holders like me.  Here’s the deal.  2 yard min or a cut charge, I do pay additional shipping charges.  If you want me to order something for you, I can have your order shipped direct to you, payment required before I order.  All fees will be passed through to you and will include my markup.  I will provide you with a quote. If you want to split a minimum cut with me, I will consider that as well. I am definitely ordering lemons for my kitchen.  Still deciding on what else.  Last...Schumacher is crazy expensive.  It is not something you want to hoard without a plan. This line is priced $60-100+ a yard.  I am selling the Frank Lloyd Wright linens at $40 per 1/4 yard which is 9” by 52” width.  That is retail.  If you want to make pillows, you may want to only make the front panel with this and use a cheaper solid backer. Just a thought. Anyway, if you are a serious shopper and want me to price out your order and discuss any requirements, email me!  I will probably move quickly once the rest of the samples arrive.  Pics?  Yes please!!!

Samples I received so far. The two on the right are wallpapers.

I can’t sell the husband on a contrasting wallpaper wall, but I am going to use this fabric for a valence.

This is gorgeous.  Cotton chintz with a sheen. The full repeat though makes it perfect as curtain panels or maybe a bedspread. You’ll want that to get the full effect!

Next up!  I added another video to my YouTube library! Come check it out and subscribe to my channel!  I am trying to keep my videos pretty short yet still informative.  Give me a few minutes of your time and let me know what you think!  This week’s episode is about Robert P Karoff of Karoff Originals and features a very cool foldable coffee table he invented that is currently in my inventory.  

 

I suggest if you are keen on something in my inventory but waiting for an income tax refund you reach out now.  I will hold items short term or with a deposit if for a week or more.  I just sold a pair of ladder back chairs and the dining chairs I am working on recovering plus I have given many shipping quotes in the last week.  I expect things will be moving quickly in the coming weeks and that is a good thing as post holidays has been slower.  Reach out if I can assist you and I will do my best.  I still have weekday hours doing taxes until April 15th and have been pretty busy.  Thanks for following along!  XO Malissa

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!  *****UPDATE***** These bags are available for purchase ON MY WEBSITE! Click on the LINK to head to the page! Grey bags are ready to ship, red bags will be here next week. If you order a red bag your order will not ship until complete. THANKS!

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. ✌️

LAYAWAY?  If you are eying a large item in my inventory but are waiting for a tax refund, reach out!  I will gladly pull an item from the market with a deposit.  Message me to discuss!  I am stocked with some awesome restorations! Before you shop for sub par New or reproduction furniture, have a look at vintage items ready for this century.  New fabrics and structure.  You can’t get this stuff off the shelf at any old vintage shop!
