Milwaukee or Bust

Awesome sixties sectional
Many of you admired the green velvet sectional we had for sale at Funtiques.  Before anyone could scoop up the sectional our daughter and her boyfriend who live in Milwaukee bought it.  The sofa had been our family for 15 years so it was sentimental along with totally awesome.  Therefor we scheduled a furniture delivery to Milwaukee in December so they could have it for the Holidays!
Awesome sixties sectionalAt 8:00am on Friday Dec. 3rd we hit the road with a trailer full.  We spent the day Friday stopping at all our favorite hot vintage spots on the way to St. Louis.  I can't tell you where they are or I would have to kill you.  We found a few fun items but nothing to jump up and down about.  We spent the night with my sister in St. Louis.  The next morning we hit the road to Milwaukee early.  We hit snow outside Springfield Illinois and it didn't stop until we arrived in Milwaukee.  YIKES.  The roads were clear but we got a little stuck in some vintage, thrift and antique parking lots.  Pulling a trailer makes for parking challenges.  Especially in Snow.  Once again we found a few fun items but nothing really special.  It's always FUN just to hunt!!!!  We met my daughter and her boyfriend at their loft once we arrived in Milwaukee.  In addition to the sectional we had brought some other surprises.  We thought they had a freight elevator available for us to use but found out that it was not accessible.  Of course they lived on the 3rd floor.  Up the 3 flights of stairs we went.   
                                                                                          The surprise was an antique card catalog unit made of oak  which is something my daughter had been hunting for and a large vintage 50's fan.  The card catalog and fan were our early Christmas gifts.  It all seemed like a good idea when we thought we had an elevator we could use.  
I thought I was going to die after 10 or more trips up and down the stairs carrying things.  I needed oxygen and a masseuse.  They were very excited and pleased with their sofa and gift surprises so I guess it was worth it.  They live in a 4000sf loft with lots of COOL SPACE, potential and drafts.  It was very cold the whole time we were in Milwaukee.  I was warm for 1 hour when we sat in the sun at a restaurant.   We had a wonderful time despite the stairs, snow and cold. We shopped, shopped, shopped, ate, went to a craft show my daughter helped organize, shopped, slept, went to a movie, shopped and drove home. 
We scored a MOD FABRIC sofa, dresser, shabby kitch chairs, two end tables, plaid rocker, lots of smalls and vintage clothing.         
Be sure and stop by Funtiques to check it all out in person.
I'll have more Funtiques adventures to share soon!

Loved your booth at the Antique Festival of the Ozarks, so we are looking forward to visiting your store the next time we are in Springfield. It's always fun to see things that I can say, "we HAD that when I was growing up" to my younger husband..:)

Hello! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask. Does running a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work? I'm completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou! wholesale NFL jerseys
