MCMLeague Annual “Purge-O-Rama” Yard Sale – July 10th

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

It’s that time of year again! Lots of league members come together to sell their vintage and used wares. Lots of fun stuff to buy! If you’ve never attended one of our sales, your missing out. It’s full of members who collect all kinds of mid-century and vintage things, but have collected too much! You don’t have to spend all day going from garage sale to garage sale looking for vintage, it’s all going to be here!

If your interested in selling, contact [email protected] - $10 for members, $12 for non-members to sell all your stuff!

Next MCMLeague’s Meeting – Sunday June 27th 6pm

Monday, June 21st, 2010

June’s public meeting will be held upstairs at The Original - a Portland downtown dinerant! This modern yet retro-inspired eatery boasts “classic diner atmosphere for the 21st century”

Our topic of interest will be about summertime entertaining. Got a fun BBQ recipe you’d like to share? A vintage apron you wear while grilling? Fun picnic accessories or vintage diner advertising? Anything associated with summer entertaining or diner culture would be great to spark the imagination for this summer’s festivities. Please keep the number of items to share to a couple, and respect the establishment by not bringing in large items.

While your there, be sure to check out Jeff Kunkle’s Vintage Roadside photography titled “Dinosaurs and Diving Girls” on display courtesy of Elroy Art.

Next MCMLeague’s Meeting – Sunday May 23rd at 6pm

Friday, May 14th, 2010

May’s public meeting will be held at Hawthorne Vintage – a 6000 square foot vintage retail store located at on Hawthorne Blvd. This store has a unique array of mid-century furnishings provided by a dozen vintage dealers. The store normally closes at 6pm, but we’ve made arrangements to have the store remain open for our league meeting.

This month’s show-n-tell topic will be about tips for furniture repair and restoration. We will discuss products to use for cleaning and reconditioning, and answer questions about how to get that piece of furniture to sparkle. Bring in any handyman books, magazines or articles that you would like to share with the group.

The MCMLeague’s next meeting will be held April 25th at 6pm – this month’s meeting will be held at a recently joined member’s home, this time a Robert Rummer home in Beaverton! Jeffrey and Todd have been gracious enough to open up their recently purchased Rummer, and are excited to share it with other members.

Last month’s meeting was held at a Rummer house in Gresham, and the topic was “Home Renovation/Remodeling” – since it is spring and many of you are thinking of outside projects this summer, it would be fun to have a discussion topic at the next meeting focused toward mid-century landscaping, gardening, patios, decks, etc. Bring any books, photos, or stories to the meeting to share!

Some snacks and wine will be provided, but we ask you to help contribute by bringing a hot dish or some snacks and beverages.

MCMLeague Monthly Meeting – April 25th, 6pm
Jeffrey & Todd’s Rummer Home – Beaverton
13770 SW Bonnie Brae St. Beaverton, OR 97005

Last meeting we handed out grocery totes with the MCMLeague logo on it to paid members. We will bring the ones for members who could not join us last month to the next meeting. We hope to see you!
