I’ve always been a fan of Mark Sage. Check out my story on him from 2009. And I still miss his Love Train Antiques, which used to be next to the Scott Antique Market. His place was pretty much where I first spotted vintage collectibles like seltzer bottles, demijohns, and school maps. Yes, hip companies like Restoration Hardware and Anthropologie come to him for ideas. Unfortunately, his firm is completely wholesale now. The company, Bobo Intriguing Objects, recently moved into a new sprawling space on Chattahoochee Avenue. You might have visited it when the company hosted the recent Art Papers Auction. Well, here’s the big news: Today and tomorrow, they’re hosting a warehouse sale! The prices are incredible, and the merchandise is as whimsical and cool as only Mark Sage can find.
We spotted some of the city’s top designers there this morning when the door opened. Check out our photo gallery to sample some of the merch.
