Spent the night in Columbus, OH Tuesday night. Headed out about 10:30 Wednesday morning and only made it about 40 miles before I saw a huge 750 dealer antique mall.
Full disclosure time: I dislike antique malls. In general stuff is overpriced, there seems to be a lack of what I'm looking for, and the individual owners of the stuff for sale are generally absent. The only people available are the mall owners and staff. You can't strike as good a deal with an intermediary. But I stopped anyway. Good thing. Great googly boogledy. You should have seen all the stuff.
This is Springfield Antique Center in Springfield, OH. It's just west of Columbus. I recommend it. There is about two and a half acres of floor space in here. I saw most of it. I took about eighty pictures. Here's the first half.
|Cool kitchen table and chairs and stuff.|
I bought a couple of things, but those pictures are for another post. This post is pretty much just mid century modern objet d'lust. Thirty nine more pictures inside.
I wish I could remember all the prices, but . . .
This is just about looking. I'm not even going to bother you with very many captions.
|The lesson learned here is - shoot at an angle.|
|My family had this same type of toaster as I was growing up.|
|I can't explain my fascination with molded fiberglass.|
|This is called Marble Race. I had it as a kid.|
|Whoa! Midcentury sensory overload.|
|Super whoa! Extra double midcentury sensory overload.|
|And I thought I had a big Nipper. This guy is almost 3 feet tall.|
That's the first half of the Springfield Antique Center, Springfield, OH pictures. You'll get the rest tomorrow. While I can't really remember any prices, feel free to ask any other type question.
We'll be right back with . . . more stuff.
