The rarity on this trip, a crazy expensive Mid Mod piece-$1200 for this cool lamp in a small antique place just west of Cumberland Indiana.
A very busy week last week followed by a bout with the flu have kept me from finishing my little trip update or going to work.
Anyway, Cumberland Indiana has a really large antique mall (the National Trail Antique Mall) that is located just a couple of blocks off Route 40. Here are a few highlights from the store.
The only Franciscan Starburst pieces I saw on the whole trip. The Mugs were $60 each while the covered divided dish was $95.
I don't know the maker or pattern but this was a very cool collection, sadly they were too expensive for the Bopfish (those tumblers were $11.50 each and there were eight).
Oh man, look at all of that Franciscan autumn leaf and at 20% off! I couldn't decide so I just left it all there. Sigh, it's only a two hour trip if I want to snag it.
Other than one end table, this set of four chairs was it for Mid Century furniture at the National Trail Antique Mall ($225 for the set).
My next stop was the Richmond Indiana Salvation Army.
This chaise doesn't quite look right, does it?
I think this was a daybed but at some point it lost the mattress cushion. Salvation Army felt it was worth $450 and I didn't. Well, Salvation Army and I agree to disagree.
This was the last thrift store of my trip and I got my best piece here as well!
Dig that upholstery! This was a run down Danish style lounge chair that was cheap, cheap, cheap. I definitely see the potential of this chair and, come on, that upholstery is some killer kitsch! (I will have a before and after post on this chair soon)
I also found these two tiki mugs for a buck apiece. They look great on the chair upholstery, huh?
Well, that's it for the Indiana trip; I needed to get back home to my cats (I swear, I'm not a crazy cat guy).
