Yosha’s dining table.

3 Feb

I apologize for the poor quality cell phone photo, but my boyfriend just sent it over and I needed to share it with you guys.

As you may already know, my cat has wonderful taste in MCM furniture. You’ve already seen his bed, so I’m now going to introduce you to his new dining area table. I found this tiny wooden table with tapered legs at the Goodwill today for 99 cents. I had no idea what to do with it, but it was too darn cute to pass up. Here is what my boyfriend did with it:

Happy Campers: Angela and Mr. Blue

3 Feb

So Angela has been reading Mimomito for many moons – since the beginning! Whoa! That’s only like 5 months, but still! It excites us to have such great readers! We met Angela at the Mimomito meetup, and she told us about a chair she bought after seeing on Mimomito. She was kind enough to send in photos of a once sad little chair I had posted back in September, that she had purchased and cleaned up immensely. A chair I had dubbed Mr. Blue. I became attached to the chair because he was only $40.00, had a cute little shape, and the saddest spray painted black legs I had ever seen. I just really wanted someone to buy and sit in him.

Here is what Mr. Blue looked like in his Craigslist ad..

And here he is in Angela’s home! Here’s what she had to say about him:

As promised, here are some pictures of Mr. Blue who was on your page last summer.
We had the chair reupholstered at Robles Upholstery in Woodland using Herman Miller turquoise boucle fabric from Winterbeach Modern ( http://www.winterbeachmodern.com ).
My husband stripped the paint on the legs and finished it in a walnut stain.

Thanks again, Angela! To anyone else who has seen something on Mimomito and then purchased it, please please let us know!

Craigslist: Milwaukee

3 Feb

I got this atlas see… from 1970. It has maps of the different states, and the different production and manufacturing that was coming out of what state at the time, and how much the state grossed. For example, the agricultural states versus the states producing  materials like paper and furniture. So consequentially I am just looking through Craigslist all over the place. Second one is Milwaukee!

Milwaukee-Wisconsin

180.00 for the pair.

This for last…let us hear everything the owner has to say about this magnificent looking lamp:
Que in music.

“Selling my War Of The Worlds Lamp – Unique, retro, hand made, harkening back to vintage Sci-Fi days. The key turns it on and the cool green changes to yello-green with Red eye. A red eye on the stand also illuminates. I hate to let it go, but I’m moving. Asking $90 OBO – make me an offer. Cash only>”

Alssssoooo There is a chromchraft set similair to this one selling for 1500.00 in detroit OI :o

I kinda dig that these things point upward. Sometimes these lamps are pretty bad about distributing light evenly. Maybe them pointing upward would bounce the light off the ceiling and help with a more even distribution. Lamp is going for 100.00 in Pacific Grove.

Just in case you didnt see….

“Local business replacing our old desks that were lightly used and of high quality. These would be great for a startup business or a office furniture supply house to resell. All eight desks will need to be taken. You haul. $80 cash, firm. Located near the intersection of South Watt and Fruitridge. Any other questions, please email. Will need to pick up between 9:30 am and 5:00 pm weekdays. “

Maybe there is one in there that is extra special and dear to you.
