In the above pic, I scored that 50's endtable and an amazing Kroehler swiveling chair for $15! The chair is incredible, but of course I don't have a picture of it... I agreed to take the chair and endtable right away to get it for $15 at the thrift store, just kinda forgot what car I was driving hehe... the guy's face as he carried out the chair to the car was priceless... It was a "cozy" trip home to say the least...
Haven't painted or decorated much in the above room, but just putting vintage stuff in the room makes it instantly better! This table set is one of my all time favorite pieces...The lines of the table, the blonde wood, and that outrageous original striped vinyl! This one's definitely a long-term keeper! (Can you believe the seller wanted to reupholster them?! Yes, there are a few small rips on the seat part of some of them, but those stripes! Oh! How could you even think that!
And scored this awesome melmac set on ebay! $30 got me a lot! This is only a third of the whole set! (the other half is pink and yellow!!!)
I got the following stuff at the same place I got my sofa set in the living room...
Love this 60's string owl! I forget what these are called, but I love it! It'll go great against the soon-to-be pale chartreuse wall in the family room.
And of course filled my appetite for kitsch with some awesome salt-n-pepper guys! I love the bowl of fruit- the pineapple and lemon come out ha!
And aren't these awwsh? The seller's mother made them in the 50's, and she was going to throw them away!
And an incredible score for $3!!! This amazing vintage tin rocket ship!! It's supposed to light up and drive around (it sort of does...ish). I hung it on the wall...I LOVE this!!!
Also scored this incredible Zenith Porthole TV!!!!! Ok actually I don't have a picture of mine on hand, but this is the exact same year/model as mine, except mine's in better shape! It's gutted, but that just means I can hide modern TV guts behind the screen and no one will know (shh!).
Also got this later 50's Zenith recently. However, the more recent find of the above Zenith means I have to sell this later one(I can't keep em all, and love the literal round screen of the earlier one!). I have one guy really interested in CT... I have to see is UPS would ship this... (I would remove the glass and legs).
So anyways, I know that was a long post, but I'm so far behind and just wanted to show you all all the goodies I've been getting! And that's still not nearly everything...
