That's my friend Beth sitting at right and the back of my friend Heidi in the truck they came out early while it was threatening to pour down rain, and helped me to set-up and sell all day (That guy in the blue shirt kept eyeing the Wassily chairs but didn't go for it).
I have a word of advice for anyone who plans to sell at flea markets, neighborhood sales or anyplace (you can even use it for Craigslist sales)- get a Square card reader. 75% of my sales were by credit card and I would have had a damned lousy day without that card reader. It's free to get one, super easy to use, they take 2.5% of each sale and they work with iPhones or Android phones.
Here is the back of the u_Haul just after I had taken out a few items.
If you have seen the blog then a few pieces will be familiar, like the pair of lane end tables, the Declaration coffee table and the small Danish style lounger on the left. Next to the lounger is a Baumritter glider lounger, just right of the Lane tables are a pair of Wassily chairs (1970s knock offs that were redone with vinyl). and a couple of end tables on the right that I refinished (that's another post). Here is my smalls rack.
There are eight flip clocks a cube shaped and white spherical handed clocks, two turntables a couple of tin lunch pails with shoulder straps, some ashtrays, a small set of cute mod flowered china (I'll post that sometime), a couple of pitchers, a chrome swag lamp, four table lamps, the 1970s orange GTE phone message center and a couple of desk lamps. Here are some side tables and lamp shades.
I refinished the table in front and the Lane Acclaim in back but did not have time to re-do the other side table (next time). The lamp shades are not exciting but if I see lamp shades in excellent condition for very cheap I pick them up and then offer them for $5.00 if you buy a lamp, $8.00 without a lamp; I sold four lamps, three with shades. you should recognize most of these pieces.
The early 1970s Ekornes recliner, the disco era hanging lights, Drexel Declaration, the two chairs I refinished and reupholstered, the Umanoff magazine holder and what's it sitting on?
This nifty slatted bench I found last week! It was six feet long, had white formica on one end and the other end was upholstered. A couple of cute nerds in love fell for this baby and are going to take it with them to Oregon.
I also found this neat little buffet, by Dixie, in a consignment shop. I had to give the top a quickie refin while I was polishing, cleaning and loading the u-haul (I did not get to fix the torn fabric in the door panel). Before and after pics in a future post. Oh, that's a bowl of flash cubes on top of the buffet.
Lamp land on the end table continent. That's the Richardson Brothers buffet I got at auction in my hometown about two years ago, on the back of the truck.
This is the Richardson Brothers furniture table and chairs, designed by Lawrence Peabody (stamped 1961), that I also got at the auction. There are also some black pottery I got as part of a box lot and a Royal typewriter in tweed case.
Another view of the Baumwritter, Ekornes, lamps, buffet, shades.
