Although I brought home an incredible Lane Perceptions Dining Room Table, Chairs and Hutch on Saturday, my find of the weekend was this box above. I'm always drawn to the unusual and the unique. It's what makes my heart beat faster and feeds my soul. I found this box of vintage Queen Bee shipping boxes and Honey boxes (New Old Fabulous Stock) at the Flea Market on Sunday. The little wooden boxes with wire mesh held the Queen and these were placed inside the little cardboard boxes. There are very sweet instructions on how to care for your queen on each box. My friend Jacki up in Washington has bees and ever since seeing her hives and tasting fresh honey, I've picked up bee supplies when I see them. A few weeks ago I found a rusty smoker. These will be repackaged and sold at the Antique Society and possibly on eBay. I'll also keep some since they are simply too lovely for words.
My biggest news, and why you haven't heard from me in ages, is that I'm going to expand Mod Sonoma. I'm taking over the space to the side of my current one at the Antique Society. This will allow me to focus on larger pieces of furniture like the Lane set I found on Saturday.
Currently my entire living room is filled to the brim with furniture and inventory. I have my vintage store clothing rack on wheels which will feature Scandinavian linens and Vera Newman Linens. I've had my Vera collection for quite a few years with plans to sell on eBay. Now that I can display them properly I'm going to sell them at Mod Sonoma. I also have Italian Bar Stools, a fabulous (another) teak hutch, a very large collection of Teak cutting boards - many of them Dansk, a groovy vintage Key Cutting Machine with Key Display (filled with key blanks) and so much more. You can barely get into the house at the moment.
Moving day begins on Friday when I'm there painting the back wall Aqua. I'll move in Friday and Saturday with hopes of going to Alameda on Sunday to shop.
