Thank you. Put it on my lime green 76 V.W. Beetle. Love it!
MODvelous Girl who left Corporate America to sell Groovy Merch!
I was once an Advertising/Marketing/Public Relations Executive at a swanky fun Agency in the City. I have been a forever single girl that lived in the city with a Mid-Century Modern styled apartment, cocktails at night with my girlfriends, Cafe sidewalk breakfast on the weekends, Starbucks, Traveling/trips to London, shopping, working long hours......you get the picture.
I met my honey (6' 4" tall blue-eyed, strong, calm, college football loving, big hearted, hard-working wonderful man), moved to the ‘burbs and left the hectic corporate world behind. In 2011 I created my own business MOD SQUAD PICKING. MOD Squad Picking was born from my long time passion and love of MID Century Modern ~ Retro ~ Vintage ~ kitschy items.
I love anything Mid-Century Modern, the 50s, 60's and 70's. Think Jackie O, DiScO's Studio 54, and Ali McGraw in Love Story, Original Charlie’s Angels, Avocado Green Appliances, Eames furniture, Frank Lloyd Wright and Mod Palm Springs homes. A wannabe purveyor of mid century style with a deep enthusiasm for all things retro vintage. I have an unhealthy obsession for retro stuff, and am under strict instruction to stop this hoarding. But hang on, you can never have too many places to sit or too many vintage lamps switched on when having a fabulous cocktail party now can you?
My life is calm now, happy, peaceful and fun – riding in my VW Beetle, listening to ABBA music while traveling the City and way out rural areas looking, hunting and picking all those MID Century Modern treasures! I adore Kitschy treasures that bring back childhood memories or trigger a thought of days gone by. I only buy what I love and I list almost everything I find! So if it does not sell - I'm stuck with something I love! I get my greatest pleasure when someone on Facebook spots one of my pickings and it triggers a childhood memory. I think many of us seek nostalgia and why buy something new when you can have something vintage instead?
Lover and Picker of all things MID CENTURY MODERN ~ Shag Carpet, Chunky Ceramic Ashtrays, Spaghetti Swag lamps, Fiberglass Atomic lamps, Avocado Green items, Orange Plastics, Lucite yellow smiley faces, orange Lucite flowers along with some Danish MOD wood! Eames Era! Fred Press and Georges Briard Glass! Atomic Space Age is all my rage/love!
I pick almost all my items at Estate Auctions and Estate Tag Sales ~ uncirculated gems that I hope to help find a new MOD home!
I take great pride on providing excellent customer service to all my buyers ~ I communicate quickly, I ship quickly and I pack like a PRO! Keep up with me by following me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest!
Groovy, Peace, Love ~ Ciao!
