|Sofa Finds Loving Home-Pitbull Not Included :)|
Thanks to the posts of bloggers Mr. Modtomic and Mid-Century Midwest about the treasures they found and left behind at our glorious Yard Sale, we gathered all kinds of interest in this Sofa and other Vintage Modern finds at Rocket Century.
A fellow blogger, Dave's Mid-Century Stuff, saw the posts and decided he really needed to save this sofa, although the 3 piece sectional sofa he really wanted had already been scooped up by a dealer and flipped to a family here in STL.
Dave decided to make the trek through STL to see if he could check out this sofa and any other vintage modern treasures we could assist him with here at Rocket Century. I'm going to leave it to Dave to tell his story, but lets just say he found A LOT of cool things besides the Jens Risom style sofa to save for his haul!
The moral of the story here is that never underestimate the power of a Yard Sale and bloggers who are as geeked about what you love as you are. There's a wonderful community of Vintage Modern Love out there that should not be taken for granted. I have been inspired and awed this week by the blogging online community. Not only has it been great fun reigniting my inspiration for what I love to do in my business, but it has also reminded me about the best part of selling what I love, and that is the people factor. Meeting so many great people and hearing their stories this week has been a blast.
So I raise my glass to all of the other vintage modern lovers out there who hunt for treasures and share their stories which inspire us!
As online sellers we often never get to meet or even speak to the people who buy our items. We often only know them through e-mail correspondence. Hopefully people will remember that we are always open by appointment in the warehouse for anyone who is interested in checking out our stuff in person! If your here in STL or coming through town be sure to let us know when you want to drop by!
The Jens Risom style sofa pictured above with my loving Pitbull, Jax (He was the sad puppy face in my previous post and was in no way responsible for the condition of the sofa) it sometimes takes time for things to find their way to a "mid-century modern match made in heaven" as Mr. Modtomic would say. But knowing that Dave and his wife, Wonder Woman, will give it and some other pieces Dave found the TLC they need and deserve made the wait worth it!
