HOMAGE TO THE "HIPPIE DIPPY WEATHER.... MAN".

You know, sometimes I wonder if I'm on a train that may have passed too many stations. As I look out the window, most of the stops along the way seem to be bustling with people who still have that new car smell about them. Fresh faces and fresh trends. Busy slapping a clean coat of paint on a business that admittedly owns its share of chips and scratches.  But what the heck... who says I'm not a pretty hip guy.  I'm just a little longer in the hip than most of them.  But I can still picture myself at 18, standing in a garage, brush in hand, painting up  A pile of old furniture collected from my grandparents basements and attics, to be used in furnishing our 1st apartment.  Of course then, we called it "antiquing", but it was really just a decades old expression of the current "paint and distress" trend.  So don't laugh when you see me eyeballing an old copy of " The Hippies Handbook",  in 50 years, you may find yourself at a flea market  sniffing around a stack of tattered  "Vintage Style" magazines. Anyway, if you'd like, we'd love you to take a look at the latest issue of the New Century Collector.  This months cover is dedicated to what I think of as hip.  But you'll find a little something for every collector inside.  Just give the picture below a little click.  We hope you like it.

COME AND GET THEM. RECORDS RECORDS RECORDS!

IT'S HERE!!!! DON'T MISS THE ROCK & ROLL SWAPMEET TOMORROW

Most people who know me, know I have a compulsive disorder when It comes to records.  But if you think I'm exited about the Rock & Roll Swap Meet tomorrow, you should she my wife Lyn.... She's absolutely giddy.  This is the first time she's seen records actually leave the house.  I think she's been milling around the boxes gleefully saying goodbye to each of them.  Come by the swap meet tomorrow and buy a record.... she may even do a little jig.  See you there.

 

DON'T MISS THE R&R SWAPMEET TOMORROW!

1000'S OF CHANCES TO MAKE YOUR LIFE A LITTLE

SWEETER, WITH A LITTLE MUSIC.

TWO OUT OF THREE AIN'T BAD

 
I USUALLY DROP OFF A STACK OF COLLECTORS AT A SHOP, ANTIQUE SHOW OR EVENT,  AND THAT'S  THE LAST I SEE OF THEM. I FIGURE PEOPLE READ THEM, BECAUSE THEY'RE USUSALLY GONE WHEN I DROP OFF THE NEXT BATCH. HOWEVER, I DON'T REALLY GET MUCH PERSONAL EVIDENCE OF THAT.
 
BUT, I WAS GOING THROUGH SOME PICTURES WE TOOK DOWN IN SPRING CITY DURING THEIR HERITAGE DAY CELEBRATION A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO,  WHEN I RAN ACROSS THIS PHOTO THAT LYN HAD APPARENTLY TAKEN WHILE I WAS OFF GABBING WITH SOMEONE.
WHAT I CAN'T FIGURE OUT, IS WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THAT LADY IN THE MIDDLE.  I HAD ALWAY THOUGHT THAT EVERYBODY GRABBED ONE.  WELL,
I GUESS 2 OUT OF 3 AINT BAD.
 
CHECK OUT THE JULY ISSUE FOR A REPORT ON SPRING CITY HERITAGE DAY.  ONE OF MY FAVORITE ANNUAL EVENTS

DON'T JUST SIT THERE.... GET YOURSELF A CHAIR

CHAIRS! CHAIRS! CHAIRS!
EuroTreasures.... Salt Lake City,
10's of thousands of square feet of
antiquing bliss!

You don't approach a trip to EuroTreasures the way you would an ordinary antiquing excursion. It's just not a casual event.  One prepares himself for
the experience.  If you think of the usual antiques shop as a church, EuroTreasures is a Cathedral.
 
EuroTreasues is huge. You could easily fit 8 or 10 typical antiques malls
into this cavernous building siding 600 south as you enter the city. And, due to owner and antiques guru Scott Evans penchant for "higher and deeper", it can be a bit daunting to take it all in.  There are 1000's of antique sideboards, dressers, wardrobes and the like, arranged as if dropped from the heavens into haphazard piles and stacks, accessed by a maze of small alleys and passages.  At the very least, to explore this remarkable shop, you need to set aside a bit of time, and
you might want to take a bottle of water, maybe pack a lunch, or at least 
grab a little granola or an energy bar.
 
If you have never been to EuroTreasures you've missed what is perhaps
Utah's most fascinating antiquing experiences.  You'll find a $10,000 Hunt
Cabinet standing in the shade of a stack of $200 rustic commodes and
$20.00 antique chairs. African art & objects mingle with Utah's best selection
of arts and crafts furnishing, and the place bulges with "as is" pieces, budget
 priced and perfect for restoration, reimagined or up-cycled projects. All watched over by a full body mount African lion and a menagerie of lesser creatures.
 
AND AS I MENTIONED ABOVE
CHAIRS! CHAIRS! CHAIRS!
 

They must be breeding. They seem to be roaming the shop with no natural predators.  Everywhere you look you find a chair peeking at you from behind
a bookcase or dresser, or lined up like a firing squad. Thousands have been herded to the back of the building and stacked in a pile as high as the rafters.  Sets and single chairs, Victorian to art deco, interlocked in a pile
as intricate as a Chinese puzzle box.
 
THROUGHOUT JUNE, EVERY CHAIR AT EUROTREASURES IS ON SALE
 
For as little as $10, you can buy an antique chair, that with a bit
of elbow grease and a little wax will ad a touch of charm to any room, or can be easily updated with a little chalk paint for vintage lovers.
 
THIS SALE PROMISES TO BE A MECCA FOR
BOTH COLLECTORS AND DEALERS. STOP BY AND DIG OUT A TREASURE

JUST ANOTHER ANTIQUES SHOP....... HECK NO

Don't get me wrong, I don't think of any antiques shop as "just another", each has its own personality and business model, and I can have a good time skulking around any of them.  But what differentiates A UNIQUE BLEND, is something that not many men at least, can't resist.  Tools.  However in this case we're not talking about antique or collectible tools, these are the kind of tools that can repair or restore your antiques.  And A Unique Blend owner Rex Sawyer knows how to use them. 
Rex offers restoration on Furniture, frames and lighting, and also does mirror and glass replacements.  Along with the restoration services, you'll also find a nice selection of vintage, retro, industrial and antique furnishings.
 
 
  

Rex has been in the antiques business for years, and his new shop/shoppe located at 1700 South 320 West, is a reincarnation of his highland drive shop of the same name which he closed a few years ago.  Stop by and check out the shoppe, or give Rex a call if you need restoration services.
