As part of the BOoT (Birthday Orgy of Thrifting), I drove up to the Findlay Ohio Antique mall where I made a surprising score of this nice Fritz Hansen folding tray table!

To be clear, "Birthday orgy of thrifting" is a term that also includes Craigslist, antique malls/stores and other non-thrift stores. I mention this because I spotted this set of five Drexel declaration side chairs on the Springfield Ohio Craigslist and they became a part of the epic haulage of BOT.

I haven't been hitting the thrifts as heavily as in the past but it's that time of the year-Birthday orgy of thrifting time! Due to the Thanksgiving holiday I have had to start the thrifting orgy in my hometown and surrounding area. Take a look!

I was on my way home from the vet when I spied an estate sale sign; I told the kitten I had recently rescued, that he was going to have to chill for a few while I took a quick poke around. Man, did I miss a good sale! If I had been waiting at 9:00A.M. I would have had a shot at a house full of vintage Knoll and Herman Miller furniture (Apparently there had been a Florence Knoll sofa, A Saarinen womb chair w/ ottoman plus a tulip table w/ four chairs, some sort of Herman miller desk and bedroom furniture)- sigh. What I did walk off with was this solid frame, leather covered Hardoy "butterfly" chair. Based on the rest of the furniture, I feel confident that this is by Knoll.

This past weekend, September 27-29, the Columbus Museum of Art had it's second annual 20th Century show and sale event. I was able to offer a pair of tickets to the Friday night preview party and to attend. There was free food and drink (sorry, the Tom Collins may have cause a blurry pic here and there).

Yesterday I drove about 45 minutes west of Columbus to the fall edition of the Springfield Ohio Extravaganza, one of the largest antique flea markets in America. I found a find a few items to toss into my fishing net....
