It’s not everyday you get to buy Modern design out of a big, crazy warehouse.

… not to mention a warehouse that reminds me of the one in Max

I’ve spent every day this week doing back-breaking labor to help my pal, Lawrence Converso, get his warehouse in shape for his big blowout warehouse sale this weekend

If you’re in the market for good deals on 40s/50s/60s furniture by Herman Miller, Knoll, Paul McCobb, Bertoia, Eames, Nelson, Noguchi, Paul Evans and so on, you should get over there. Lighting, sofas, desks, credenzas, tables, etc.

Make no mistakes, the stuff is cheap for what it is… it is not inexpensive, but there are some really good deals on stuff that requres a little “elbow grease.”

The warehouse alone is cool as hell, it’s a former repair shop for streetcar engines, back when Chicago had streetcars. The ceilings are maybe 40 feet tall, with a gigantic, terrifying 25 ton crane hanging from the ceiling, just waiting for you to walk under it.

Anyway, I’ll be there, scmoozing, selling, and doing heavy lifting. So feel free to stop by and say hello. Plus, you get to meet Patrick (above).

Two days only:
Saturday, Oct 16: 10am-5pm
Sunday, Oct 17: 12pm-5pm
