I will be out and about this week as we celebrate spring Antiques Extravaganza in our area!  Here in Kutztown, you will find plenty of shopping steals and deals.  Head to https://renningers.net/index.php/extravaganza for the event details. There is usually an email sign up for $1 OFF admission coupon so make sure you find it on their site! Your coupon comes via email so print it out to use at the gate.  This 3 day event has an array of dealers with all kinds of items.  The market itself has wonderful food vendors including fresh veggies, meats and meals.  Come hungry and pack a cooler for all these PA DUTCH treats!  Many locals will be yard sale selling this weekend!  Be prepared to brake for junkin! Check craigslist and other yard sale apps and keep your eyes on the signs!

Municipal parking lot next to YOUNG ONES music shop.  FIREFLY USED BOOKSTORE is amazing.  Paisley and Company hand made soaps and toiletries is great too.  If you like jewelry, Sorelli has a store on Main St as well.  For eats, Letterman’s Diner will stuff you in a small cozy retro diner.  The Airport Diner just out of town is a family favorite too.  For beverages and fare, do not miss Kutztown Tavern and Saucony Creek microbreweries. 

JUST SOUTH ON 222- Fleetwood Antique Mall.  14129 Kutztown RD, Fleetwood.  Come see my small but mighty retail space and take home some fabulous finds! I will definitely be set up on Thursday and maybe Friday outside!  Stay tuned for my social media for updates. I am packing my medical items for the weekend. I will definitely have the most extensive collection of it in the area.  Come make a deal!  https://www.fleetwoodantiquemall.com/

Kirbyville Antiques-  keep heading south a few miles on 222, on the right.  Same owner as above so on that website. 

Red Barn Antiques-  Park Rd, Blandon. Turn left at the light on route 73, turn left at next light (Park RD), the barn is on the left. https://www.redbarnblandon.com/

Jump on 222 south bypass, formerly known as road to nowhere and head to Adamstown for more fun. Prices generally leap down there but you can find deals if you hunt.  We love Shupp’s Grove Flea Market which should be open sat and Sunday.  There are many markets and co-op’s to visit so grab some brochures at your first stop. http://shuppsgrove.com/

Other area markets: Jakes Flea Market, Barto open Sat and Sun.  I am planning on setting up here with my friends on Saturday morning.  I think they have a vinyl and record event this Sunday as well.  https://www.jakesfleamarket.com/

Credenza refinish, Black Friday/Small Biz Sat

IMG_9686.JPG

I am in the final week of my tax prep class and so excited to finish up!  I have a final next Monday which I need to score 80 or better on. 🙏🏻 Hopefully this will open me up for some hours next spring.  I love what I do here but it does not pay my bills.  🤷‍♂️ So until that happens I have to keep working a plan B. Meanwhile, I am thinking about Black Friday and Small Biz Saturday.  I will have some great stocking stuffers from Primitives by Kathy out at my retail space priced to move. I am doing $6 ea and pick 4 for $20.  These are new gifts from my wholesaler in packaging with tags, etc.  they retail for double this price so come shop with me!  I hope to spend some time hanging out at the mall too.  Please come take a look at the Broyhill set if you are looking for a mid mod dining room. I just redid the top of the credenza too.  I am not so sure I can squeeze that in but I left a flier on the table about it.  Here are some pics

Very pleased with the color match!  I am priced well under retail on this collectible Broyhill set. I would love to find it a home for the holidays!

I wish I could feature more stuff out here but alas, I only have a small space.  Please review my online shops.  If you want to see anything let me know and I will try to leave it out there for you or meet you so you can see it.

Just split up this chair set by selling off 2 of the black chairs.  I am now offering in sets of 2, black or natural finish.  If you want all 4 I will split shipping.  These can go Greyhound 2 per box.

Another interesting item available is this great antique chest.  My son used it as a toy chest and we made some modifications including fixed hinges that keep the top open all the time, plastic trim over the metal edge. The lock is broken so no chance of locking a tiny person inside and we are leaving a mat in the bottom.  Great toy storage for a waiting room or play room. The paint is durable and was redone before we bought it 13 years ago or so.  It is a neat piece and needs a new home.    Etsy shop sales ENDS NOV 15th 11:00 pm EST! SHOP NOW AND SAVE ON MOST ITEMS!

Wish list

IMG_4805.JPG

Hello there!  Is anyone looking for something specific?  I would love to do some custom sourcing this summer!  Send me your wish lists and while I am shopping I will keep my eyes peeled.  In most cases, I will need to act fast to secure your piece and would love to shoot you pics and info before I purchase. You will get my full services of cleaning, touch ups and repairs as needed. If you have a budget, I can try to work with it.  The more general your requests, the quicker I can help you find the perfect piece.  You, in turn, can sit back and relax while I do the grunt work for you.  You can email me malissa@madmodworldvintage.com to get on the list.  Tell me specifically what items you are looking for, color or other details that are important to you, budget if you have one and  a cell number so I can text you photos.  When I think I found the right piece, I will contact you with pics, dimensions, condition report and my repair plan. If you are on board, the item will be purchased for you and will be ready for delivery as fast as I can. **I may require a deposit at time of purchase which will be determined by our working relationship.  

I am looking to work with individuals, small businesses and more! Your referrals will help me and are very much appreciated! I look forward to assisting you in making your decorating dreams come true! 

I will be taking a much needed camping break the next 2 weekends.  I will try not to delay any orders during those times.  Thanks for your continuing support! ✌️😘 Malissa
