So, this is a home tour that unfortunately got lost in the shuffle and kerfuffle of a Mimomito identity crisis. Thanks to the wonderful Heather and David for not sending rocks through our windows for taking so long to post this. It has likely been almost A YEAR since they welcomed us into their home to poke around and take photos. Thank you for your patience and kindness to allow us in your lives and beautiful home. I personally know that you both have added new items and pieces to your home, so perhaps this’ll be like a walk down memory lane, ha! Now, finally, Heather and David Hadley’s Home Tour.
Where is your home located?
When was your home built and when did you move in?
Built in 1957, bought home in 2010 / 3bd, 2.5ba 1800 SF
Why did you choose your home?
Good neighborhood; the layout; original hardwood floors; updated kitchen and granite counter-tops; but most importantly (according to David) the game room with a 1970’s built-in bar.
What attracted you to mid century design?
In my mid-20s, I rented an old one-bedroom apartment in Midtown Sac. I fell in love with the mid-century original features. It had a pink bathtub, elephant gray tiling and toilet, the kitchen was galley style and had stainless steel counter tops. I embraced the vibe, and carried that feeling into our new home.
Goodwill done turned it up a couple of notches. Shop goodwill has tons of goodies you can oggle from your home and
bid. Alot like Ebay only most of the time the starting prices are pretty cheap. I may be late for this bus but I am completely enthralled with this. Here’s some stuff that may be to your liking.
I finally got a Saturday off. Serene doesn’t get to go thrifting with us very often, so we all hopped on the opportunity of group thrift-scoring. We decided we should check out the East Bay. Starting off in Berkeley, then going to Oakland and working our way down. Coffee was a must.
Oh and breakfast.

Hi, I just saw this at the Goodwill on Manzanita Avenue. It needs some cleaning, but looks to be in decent shape. The laminate top looked OK too. It was marked $8.99 so I think it is a bargain. :-) Kathy
$150 in West Sacramento. (Original Post)
Thanks for being an extra set of eyes out there in the field, Kathy! Keep them coming, guys!
We couldn’t be in Auburn without stopping at the Triple X er The Forest Hill bridge. It was our first landmark and a pleasant way to start the day out in Auburn.
The Goodwill sale was pretty good to us. You cant really beat 50 cent prices! I’ll tell you what though it was a pretty big hoopla. Lots of people and long lines. It wasn’t intolerable (Toni described some pretty scary stuff at the last sale she went to) but it was surprising. At one point there werent any shopping carts and I had to get creative with a wicker basket. Anywho be prepared for a lot of pictures:
