The Wave couch is in the final stages and is scheduled to be complete at the end of the week. I cannot wait to see it! I just finished the legs. They were sanded down, restained and new poly top coat. I just have to install the floor glides that get hammered in. So excited to see this beauty and the fabric is to die for! I will get some pics when she is home waiting delivery. I got prices to have my X benches put back together (I still have to tear apart the 2nd bench....this will take me a while!) so I am ready to get them done as soon as I finish the tedious tear down. I was thinking of using the same joybird fabric as the wave couch but in blush or a moss green. They are both beauties! I will need 6 yards. If anyone wants to jump in and claim them I will work a little faster and it's not too late to choose the fabric! I estimate finish price for the pair to be $650-800 depending on if you buy direct from me or if they get listed in my online markets and are subject to fees, etc. They are extremely tedious and labor intensive. They look awesome at the foot of a bed and they are VERY hot in today's decorating trends!
The gold velvet couch and chair has been a very hot item for me and sadly, they are not going to be cheap to ship. I have been working with a west coaster and quite frankly, the quotes are coming back $1000-2000. This set needs a closer home. Preferably one I can deliver to. If you are in the region or would be willing to meet and can transport, this set will be stunning in the right décor. I might be able to get more reasonable shipping east coast or even Dallas TX as I have a ushipper that goes there a few times a year. I spend a lot of time pricing shipping and it makes me sad when I can't find something that works for my buyer, but it is what it is. I have this set priced to MOVE so if you love it, message me right away and we can see if we can make it work. It is in multiple carts on etsy right now. Don't forgot, PLYCON quotes instantly in my chairish.com/shop/madmodworldvintage shop.....add the item to your cart like you are buying it, make sure your zip code shows up and you will see the shipping and fees. FIRST TIME SHOPPERS can get a coupon for signing up for an account or message me with your email and I can have one sent to you! I do occasionally beat this shipping price but it really depends on where you are. USHIP for me is less than impressive. I do not get bids most of the time which is seriously depressing!
In other NEWS, I just got to my wholesaler to restock some goodies for my booth that I like to use as filler and fit my eclectic/boho/camping theme. Not only did I come home with some cute items like MORE PLACEMATS! These never stick around long! I have 2 sets (of 4) of mixed Kantha mats and 3 sets of matching blue/white patterns so come check them out in the etsy shop! $30 each set plus ship. They are always popular and do not last long. Perfect for your dining table or use when you are camping! They are so fun. Also with Kantha items, I picked up scarves and 2 cute cross body bags. I am picky about my bags and selected these because they have leather straps, are adjustable, lined inside with zipper pocket and an open pocket for stashing important items. They are super cute and perfect for going out, shopping and festival season! I am adding a dress form to the booth this week and didn't want her to be naked so filled her with scarves and bags! Hope you can stop by as this cute stuff would make great Valentine's gifts! All NEW with tags!
I am a savvy shopper and was able to score 2 boxes of goodies in a deal Primitive's by Kathy had going on. These are all items I do not typically buy to resell but are fabulous gifts and I decided to offer them at WHOLESALE pricing! That means, these are the prices I would be paying for them, retail is marking them up 50% more! I hope you stop by my facebook page facebook.com/madformodmalissa and have a look! There is a video of me going through the box and telling you about the items, I suggest you take the time to watch it as you get my opinion and specs. Then see the album which is pinned to the top of my wall where you can comment and claim items. FILL A BOX! These are all small items so I can pack a box for you and price shipping. You will be invoiced via PAYPAL so all I need is your email address to send the invoice, which will be done as soon as I pack your items and calculate the shipping. This is so fun and I am thrilled to be able to let you guys WHOLESALE shop with me! You will find GREAT GIFTS for Valentine's Day/Easter and Mother's Day! Let me know if you have any questions! I will leave the album up for a month or two. Unclaimed items will either be used for giveaways or may be priced and put in my booth. I hope you can find some things you love. **My best shipping rates are east coast/mid west. I will not have access to Fed Ex discounts via paypal but I do have a UPS account so if you are in my worst prices USPS zones, I will price at the cheaper rate for you. I always check for the most cost effective way to get you the goods!
Philanthropy: If you have been following me a while, you know I LOVE to give back to places I use for research and other art preservation causes. I recently found out that the American Art Archives in DC is allowing folks to pay to have items digitized. So, you pay for the digitizing and get a copy of the files and then they get uploaded to their online system so ALL can enjoy them online. It is kind of like sponsoring the records. I decided I would like to sponsor Bruno Mankowski's records. I am pretty certain he has no living spouse or children at this point and I feel like it will help share his story. Plus, there are enough of my naked lady sculptures out there and by the folks contacting me direct or seeing them on ebay, I know it will be found! It will cost approx. $1200 to have the two totes I reviewed digitized. I want you guys to know I will be working towards raising the funds for this so you know supporting me is not only supporting my small business, but I also give back to the organizations I work with!
STAY TUNED for final pics of the wave couch! I will send an interim update when I pick up and can get some better pics taken....snow coming so that might hinder it a bit. Have a great week!
