Martin Mattox

song pairing: Gone With The Wind by Saint Privat

My wise yoga teacher often tells me to 
"Be the wind, not the tumbleweed"
But I have to say, when it comes to treasure hunting 
roaming around aimlessly through old neighborhoods 
like a tumbleweed 
is way too much fun.

After a long day of estate and garage sales
I decided to go check out my local Antique Mall
Not sure why ...
I rarely ever buy or go there ...

but the wind just blew me in

So glad because
I discovered an amazing looking space by

Who are these "curators of style" ?

Tim and Linda Arbogast 
of Arbogast Design Group in Sacramento

is who

Their style and juxtaposition of curious goods 
stopped me in my tracks !

SO in love with this old oil portrait !

of course anything black and white striped stops me in my tracks !

wanted so bad to take this old factory cart with drawers home ...

and this lovely old Venus statue ...

Masters at merchandising
check out this HUGE section of blue lockers !
The big blue starbursty things ?
Old car wash brush sections !

Even the guestbook is cool ...

Thank you so much MM for the visual feast !

I will be blowing in again & again very soon !

Martin Mattox is located in the
Antique Trove, Roseville, California
( about 20 mi north of Sacramento )
