The (very expensive) Modernique
« on: December 07, 2017, 10:09:41 AM »
I subscribe to a newsletter from a store in NYC called High Style Deco. Beautiful furniture and accessories, but way overpriced for a lot of their items.

The latest email I just received features a Modernique that they are selling for almost $5,500.00. I think the most I ever saw one sell for, even on eBay, was around $1,200-$1,300.

I can just see someone with a Modernique to sell finding this page, linking it to their listing on eBay and saying "See, mine's a bargain at $2,500.00!"
"Well aren't you just a fun-filled little lollipop triple-dipped in psycho."
