Vicky's Yard Sale

Remember artist Vicky Molinelli whose work I mentioned here?
Not only is Vicky a masterful painter, but she has an incredible eye for design in general {no surprise} While working as an assistant to designer Ruthie Sommers, she realized that, 'One of my favorite things to do for Ruthie was finding pieces for clients and the store {Chapman Radcliff Home}'
With the unfortunate closing of the store {a sorely missed resource in this town} another door has opened for Vicky...
'Vicky's yard sale'- A virtual rummage sale offering art deco, mid century, French, traditional, eclectic and even stuff for you DIY lovers.
Molinelli's hopes for her site are, "That whoever stumbles upon it feels the same way as I do when I drive by a hidden yard sale I didn't know about: Sheer excitement!
Set of four vintage gilt glasses with light green trellis ground picturing cards of Curion, Ogier, Azael, and Parmenion. Superb condition. Measurements : 2 ¾ x 5 ½ ” H Retail: $45
Wonderful mid century painting by artist Linda Rogers. Dated 1959. Signed both in front and on the back. In good vintage condition. Frame is a bit scuffed and matting shows some spots, refer to picture. Measurements : 44 ½ x 34 ½ ” (with frame) Retail: $500
This is also why I opted for a kinda amateur, more personal site. nothing too fancy pants, let's talk, let's make a deal. I want to have all sorts of pieces available, from straight up deliciousness,
Beautiful vintage Uzbek silk-cotton hand-embroidered Samarkand Suzani. 1960‘s. In good condition, has some stains. Perfect for tables, sofas or beds. You can also hang it as a wall panel, if you look closely you can see it comes with loops ready to hang. Measurements: 80 x 140 ” Retail: $400
to ones you might need some extra diy imagination to see potential"
Few scuff marks. Needs to be reupholstered. {ok, of course this has been sold. but I needed to show you the great diy finds that she comes across}
Charming marble bust of a lady. Carved details of flowers throughout her shawl. Tri-color marble. Excellent condition, no chips, no stains. Perfect addition to any table top displays. Measurements: 5 ¾ W x 3 D x 8 ½ H” Retail: $150
Vicky's next yard sale will be tomorrow {April 14} bright and early, coffee mugs in hand, sponge curlers in hair, with great new finds right out of the truck.
And as with any great yard sales, reasonable offers are always welcome! what? Now, that's deliciousness.
