Who else loves mid-century modern finds? I love anything from the 60s - the clean chic look just fits into our lifestyle.
I was introduced to Max Sold lately. This is an online auction house, which sells every thing from couches, tables, art, and even the kitchen sinks! Being an Interior Designer, I couldn't wait to check it out.
I had scoped out Max Sold in our city of Chilliwack, BC. There was a family downsizing and had amazing well cared for items. I bid on a few items, keeping track of it each day - Max sold can email you when someone else bids higher than you. I had my eye on Christmas items from the 1960s. The pictures were clear and concise and I could see exactly what I was bidding on!
I ended up getting vintage Christmas lights that all worked (no I didn't leave them burning in the box) , those tin light reflectors, an aluminum tree topper and a gorgeous silver tree, which was just the right size for our home - all for $6.00. I cannot wait to put it up next Christmas, especially with the mid century modern ornaments that were included. Take a look at maxsold.com to see what's available in your area!
Let us know which great items you find!
