The Lincoln Antique Mall was chock full of marvelous Mid Century pieces on Friday, from furniture to art to lighting and accessories, if this is your style, you'll find something here.
Loved these sconces, what a statement they would make.
A large scale, original abstract artwork that would make a wonderful starting point to a room's decor and was under $200.
This vintage Baker dining set, complete with the crewel upholstery on the chairs and crisp, clean lines was in excellent condition and could go right to work in any dining room. Change the fabric and the set takes on a fresh new look without losing it's vintage appeal.
Had I a home for this adorable lucite stool, I would have snatched it up!
This stunning teak credenza would make an outstanding media center.
Another vintage dining room set...
The wood tone and design of this table would work in a variety of room styles.
And then there were the chairs...admittedly I seem to have a chair fetish, as I am always drawn to them and have an abundance of chairs in my home. I saw at least a half dozen fabulous chairs or sets of chairs. Some were so perfect, they just needed a place to be shown off and make a statement. Others would benefit from a face lift and all were well priced.
How about this set of 8 Chinese Chippendale styled chairs for what I seem to recall was $450! Imagine what a little paint and some new fabric could do for these guys...
Check out this Chippendale styled chair with it's sassy white patent leather upholstery...
Speaking of white patent leather, could you just die? Is this not a knock out? The perfect piece for an entryway or foyer or pulled up to a dining table. Great for those with kids, just wipe and go!!!
Another piece that needed nothing but a place to live (the photo does not do it justice,) both the finish and the fabric were perfect.
Here are a pair that look OK as they are but with a change of upholstery and maybe a bit of paint could be knock outs.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, there was so much more to see at the Lincoln Antique Mall with its myriad of styles and huge assortment.

And one last goodie to share, I think this is some sort of antique birdcage, but imagine it perched on a beautiful table, filled with greens, or retro fitted and re-made into a foyer chandelier, love it!
