Fall Flea sale (Status:cool furniture, cold temps, wet weather)

Fall Flea was held in the Short North Arts District on Sunday, October 7th.  I had a booth, that's why I was doing all of that refinishing (duh).  It rained, it was cold, sales were low and I had the flu.

Refinishing trilogy finale- Danish surfboard coffee table and step end table (Status: refinishing like a mofo)

I think I've got the hang of this refinishing thing; I may not be a professional but man can I breath some life into battered furniture!  For my last refinishing project post, I'm showing off a step end table and a low Danish style coffee table.

Adventures in refinishing part 2, a round cocktail table (Status: I like my refinisher shaken, not stirred)

This pencil legged cocktail  table was priced right at the South High St. Salvation Army for a refinishing experiment; it ended up so nice that it sold in the first hour I had it available!

Refinishing projects part one- Danish style chair (Status: Bubba the cat approved)

I have picked-up a few project pieces over the months that were scratched, scuffed or battered with the intent to refinish them and sell them at the Fall Flea on October 7 (yes, I'm a tad behind in my posting). I'm kicking this series of posts with the Danish style chair that I found on my Indiana/National Road thrifting trip.

Greenfield Indiana to Richmond Indiana (Status: last leg of the great Indiana thrifting tour)

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.

Hickory, Hoosiers and where the movie was shot (Status: Kinda like a religious experience)

A short post that has nothing to do with Mid Mod goodies but this is a vintage basketball gym.  This is the gym that was used for the Hickory High School gym in the movie Hoosiers, it is located in Knightstown Indiana, between Indy and Richmond Indiana.

Indiana picking part the third (Status: East side of Indy to Greenfield)

There are lots of thrifts and antique places between Indy and Richmond Indiana, I had a list of 19 thrift stores and antique malls to start with and I found LOTS more along the way.  I didn't actually buy that much but, I found items here and there.  Let's join the National Rd at the Salvation Army located at 8310 E. Washington St (the National Rd/Rt. 40 through Indy).

DomiStyle, resale furniture store in Indianapolis (Status: Eastern Indiana Pt. 2)

Hi all,
While passing through Indianapolis I tried to hit a couple of small antique malls located in the Fountain Square district, unfortunately they were closed by 5:00, when the Readers Digest photo shoot ended, BUT I stumbled on this great furniture resale shop named DomiStyle (1315 Shelby Street, Indianapolis 64203).  Here are a few highlights.
