Get Your Tchtochkes, Here!

informal / 1. A small object that is more decorative than functional. A trinket.

"We've all been dying to clean out our art studios, wood shops, attics and basements," said Bernie Schilling, co-owner of MOSTLY MOD and ARTica Gallery @ 5110 Penn Avenue. " I have 27 boxes to go through. GA/GI Fest has given us an excuse to move all these wonderful items forward, so we're unearthing some really amazing things and putting them up for sale." 

 GA/GI on Friday, April 4th became the inspiration for "THE GREAT PENN AVENUE TCHOTCHKE SALE: Featuring cool stuff from MOSTLY MOD, ARTica and Churak's Junk Company.

Team GA/GI was told to point out that it's the selling of more than just mere trinkets. It's lots and lots and lots of trinkets along with dozens of other noteworthy items!  In fact, all that that this stalwart group of three mega collectors, mod enthusiasts and decorator/designers have been holding (and hoarding but never actually using) is now up for sale to the general public. And it's quite a treasure trove. The objects include glassware, books, boxes, dolls, trays, lamps, toys, clothing, fine art, decorative art, housewares, textiles, jewelry and the like that have not seen the light of day since they were acquired and stored away or tucked away in a personal stash. 

"There will be items everyone from artists, to interior designers to children will want, " said Christine Bethea ARTica's  half of MOSTLY MOD, and GA/GI's founder. "Honestly....I don't even know where to begin. But I see this sale as an upcycle/ recycle opportunity. We're doing our part to save the planet."

Joining the pair will be Mary Lou Churak, owner of Churak's Junk Company located at Ohio River Antiques, 4331 Ohio River Blvd.  Mary Lou is advertised on Yelp as doing clean-outs, estate liquidations, antiques, collectibles and more. She'll be at the helm of the tchotchke madness, selling out in front of the shop.
