I took part in the Michigan Modernism Exposition over the weekend of April 26-28 in Southfield Michigan, near Detroit. My "home" for those three days was my 24 ft by 10 ft booth.
Here are some pictures of the furniture roughly in place
From left: Charcoal holder, Umanoff Magazine holder, Acclaim end tables and coffee table, Baumritter Danish style lounge chair, cool two shade Majestic floor lamp, Drexel Suncoast buffet, Drexel Profile table and chairs, four Broyhill Brasilia chairs.
Lawrence Peabody round table and chairs, boxes of "stuff", leaves for the Profile table, Drexel Suncoast arm chair and Dazor flying saucer floor lamp.
I managed to pull together a decent booth.
I added the C. Jere sculpture and Jaru Gold cubist dog
The Lisa Johannsen lamp, three pieces of art, my Martz lamp
Eight place settings of Russel Wright Steubenville American Modern in Coral (I refinished the Profile table and reupholstered the chairs, they looked sweet!)
Brought along a selection of Taylor Smith Taylor Jamaica Bay
My spare Franciscan Starburst
and some Taylor Smith Taylor Cathay
But I seem to have really made my mark as "the Russel Wright guy"
I brought a random selection of serving pieces
Coffee related pieces and a TON of American Modern coral dinner plates, lug handled bowls and bread plates.
They loves them some Russel Wright up there in Michigan! I had purchased the stuff crazy cheap and so I was able to sell it at prices that actually caused people to question my sanity! I did pretty darn well for the weekend and gained some valuable experience for future shows; I'll probably be back to the Michigan Modernism exposition.
I'll show you some pics of other booths in a couple of days!
