Mimomito’s got friends.

10 Dec

midcentury mobler

Our buds over at Mid Century Mobler want to offer readers of Mimomito a discount on all online orders. Specializing in Danish and American mid century modern furniture, you’ll discover stunning pieces imported to the US from England and Denmark. Shop and get 15% OFF all items using code MIMO15.

Remember Mid Century Mobler? We’ve featured Julian’s SF apartment in our Homes, Sweet Homes feature here. We’ll be featuring a new piece from McMobler a few times a month, and in turn Mimomito will get kicked down some cheese when a reader users our code. It’s a treat for us all, and any money we get will go to paying our WordPress and domain fees! (This means no more awkward begging and panhandling at meet-ups.)

You da, you da best!

I’m sitting here on this beautiful morning (listening to Lil Wayne) and thinking about how absolutely wonderful you all are. Seriously, I am so excited to be apart of this blog. Last night at the Scout Living Grand Opening I must have said, “I met them through Mimomito” a million times. You’re all so great and I have so much gratitude for all of you who came out to support Scout Living. It really means the world to us. Thank you!

With that, the grand opening party was a huge success. If you haven’t made it in yet, please do so. You won’t regret it. Here are some photos:

Community: Deco the Halls, San Francisco

Our reader Ron was nice enough to pass along the information for this awesome looking event. According to their website, Deco the Halls will be featuring over 150 dealers selling mid-century modern, art deco, 50’s, 60’s 70’s, among many other styles. It is being held December 4th and 5th. I’m hoping to make it out to at least one of those days.

Thanks again, Ron!

Mimomito News Update: Who the heck am I?

5 Oct

Hello there,

My name is Toni and I love mid-century design. Like you, I spend my time searching the depths of Craigslist for the absolute best deals and since I don’t have an infinite amount of money or space, I’d love to join Serene and Rose in the celebration of Craigslist and inexpensive, sustainable, darn sexy vintage furniture.

I recently saw a bumper sticker that read, “This car breaks for ALL yard sales” and I feel like that just about sums me up. I’ve been an avid thrifter and yard sailer for many years and I was just telling Rose yesterday that if I knew then what I know now, my home would probably be filled with unwanted goodies from Eames, Nelson, Jacobsen and the rest of the gang. It breaks my heart to think of how many awesome things that I’ve probably passed over the years. — My fondness of 1950’s life began as a child. My dad had an awesome pompadour, both of my parents were into doo wop music and our first family vehicle was a black 1953 Chevy.  However, it wasn’t until I met my dear friend Gretchen (who has the most awesome home, by the way) that I really began to appreciate Mid-Century Modern design – in all regards.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to letting you know about the coolest yards sales around town and about learning some awesome things from Rose and Serene. I’m completely excited!
