Background:
 
Mod Swap is as much a social outing as it is a commerce platform for the sellers. The first Mod Swap was held at Keith York’s (modernsandiego.com) Craig Ellwood house in the early 2000’s. It was a group of midcentury collector friends who had a backyard gathering where they brought things to sell to each other. The second was another backyard gathering held at the Lillie Residence by architect Lloyd Ruocco. In 2009, Objects USA moved it to the Klassik parking lot in Little Italy and made it more of a public event. The sellers were still all friends, which is very important to us. The last Mod Swap was last held in 2010. 
 
So, after a seven year break, Mod Swap is back by popular demand. This time in our friend Greg Strangman’s backyard at his One Bunk space in Barrio Logan.
