Follow the Vintage Sofa

It’s rare that I get to find out what people do with their Amber Ostrich estate sale purchases. But I happened to get lucky with this one and decided to follow that sofa!

A couple of weeks ago I posted a blog about a vintage sofa purchased by a shopper who designs her own textiles. That sofa was bought at our last AO estate sale in Shoalmont. Then it was redesigned. And it is now for sale on a trendy new Austin store on S. Lamar, Mockingbird Domestics.

Featured prominently in the front of the store, Spaniola’s lovely sofa is selling for $3,750.

Spaniola, owner of Bunglo, upcycles vintage furniture with new material that she designs herself.

Mockingbird specializes in repurposed vintage furniture. All the furniture in the store is either vintage redesigned or made in Texas. Many of the artists they work with are in Austin.

They also hold artist-run workshops, so be sure to check out the website… and the store! It’s filled with treasures. And while you’re you’re at it, be sure and say hi to Laura.
