On my way back from the Michigan Modern Expo, I spotted a large antique mall just outside of Findley Ohio. Findley is about an hour north of my hometown so I decided that the next time I was in my hometown, and had enough extra time, I would see what I could find. Yeah, that worked out pretty well!

While visiting my dad in my hometown, I was digging through Craigslist and quickly realized that the listing for "Table and four chairs" was a nice Arthur Umanoff set! Luckily I had my van with me, but it was still an hour north of my hometown which made it two hours back to Columbus. Well, it was a good "haul" however you define it

At the end of a sales event, like the 2013 Michigan Modern Exposition, no dealers likes to load their van/ trailer/ truck so it's a great time to get yourself a good deal on some new merchandise. I took advantage of some friendships that were struck up at the hotel bar, over a couple of evenings, to get the dealer rate on a few classier pieces to offer at future sales. Let's see what followed me home.

So I found this box full of hometown finds from March. March? Has it been March since I've posted a bunch of thrift finds? I'm really slacking on the posting.

Spring Flea is the sort-a hipster flea market (lots of hand made and vintage, no diabetic socks or Nascar) that takes place just a couple of blocks from my house. It's lots of fun and pretty cool!

I was chained to my booth but I dashed off for a couple of minutes here-and-there to shoot a few quick snaps of some booths that were near my own. The Michigan Modernism Expo was about 2/3 the size of the 20th Century show in Cincinnati but it boasted lots of high end furniture, a number of clothing dealers and a significant amount of Art Deco. My pics may not give a full picture of the show but they should give you a taste.
