Main St. Modern is Heaven

Be still my MCM-loving heart.  I’ve long been eyeing this awesome place on Facebook…stalking their pictures and dreaming of where I would put all the pretties in my house.  They were closed to the public for most of the winter, but I showed up on their first Saturday of the season to scope out all of the deliciousness myself.

Yes, I just described furniture as delicious.  To me…it is.

Main St. Modern is off the beaten path.  Like, waaay off.  Tracey from ReDesign on a Dime and I ventured out to Canton that morning, diligently following our GPS.  Which dropped us off in the middle of what appeared to be a deserted warehouse district.  Confused, we started heading back towards the main road, only to notice a few cars parked in front of a building.  There were no signs, no arrows, no anything that would tell us we had arrived.  It was kind of like we were part of a secret MCM society that you had to be “in the know” to know about.  We felt cool.

Let me remind you, this is a warehouse FULL of anything and everything related to my beloved Mid Century Modern style.  Right here in Northeast Ohio.  I was on an understandable high.

Everywhere we looked, there was furniture.  And lamps.  And decor.  My mind was ready to implode.

I was really interested in a pile of lampshades.  I have some awesome MCM lamp bases in my living room that have boring Target lampshades on them.  It works, but it isn’t authentic.

I dug until I found three of the quintessential MCM fiberglass lampshades (you know the ones)….two that matched and one that was too good a deal to pass up.  I LOVE them!

Seriously though, this place was incredible.  And Adam, the owner, was such a great guy.  He chatted with me a little bit as I geeked out on all the pretties and showed him photos of my own treasures on my phone.  I was a fan girl for a bit there.

If you love Mid Century Modern as much as I do (or even if only a fraction as much as I do) you’re going to want to check this place out.  He’s open every Saturday from 10-3.  Address is 618 Mulberry Rd SE in Canton.  Like I said, there aren’t any signs alerting that you’ve arrived.  It’s a secret society thing….you’ll have to learn the handshake on your own.
