Naugatiki that is one ultra funky table. Can you just imagine some swanky '50s salesman "look, its a table. Swing this baby out and WOW, its a bar!"

It reminds me of an extreme version of those knick knacks in the 60's that look liked something quait and turned into a portable bar. I've seen Hollow radios, a castle and assorted music boxes. It would be nice to see a fold away bed that becomes a fold away bar.

Here are afew of my more favorite finds from this seasons fea market, antique mall travels.
first up is a Heywood Wakefield very modern round table with spacey swivel chairs. It's not blonde wood, but sooo differant looking. I found this being used as a sort of workshop table for a dealer at a antique mall. Table top in was in bad shape, but I used furniture restore and it now looks great.

this sputnik lamp I found in a tiny town known for it's huge amount of 50's collectables. I also have three small ones that are used as hall lights.

This looks like a bowling trophy...

but pull off the top and it's drinks all around!

this is part of my starburst shaped clock collection

and lastly for today is half of my Manny family. The lovely Barbara has been with me for many years. I rescued her from a flowershop window. Bruce was purchased from a antique mall.He is a very nice and unusal manny. Then I have the kids. This is one of 3 small sized mannies, and I also have "Chip" whom most of you have seen in another post, dressed up like a pirate, he greets everyone to my as yet named home bar and lounge.

This a small seclection of the stuff I pick up as we travel around in the fall and winter months. I never pay a much for these treasures,most of the fun is in the "hunt" for what I like.

A little beyond tiki find today.
A mint-in-leather-case Sekonic L-6 light meter.
I don't know how to use it, but I'm sure it'll come in handy.
It looks like this one:


Oh ya, it was priced at $19.99 but I was able to talk them down to $12.99(I was hoping for $15 or less)

Nice finds everyone!
alot of fun stuff to see.
(a paint by numbers Jesus? for free? GOLD!)
Naugatiki- very swingin coffee table bar. very 007 style & $50 is a great price for one of those.
Tikifish- imo, your tray looks to be a decorative bowl, but I reckon it could be used as an ikebana as well. I've seen similar, but not exactly like yours. it's nice.
Exotica59- I love cool retro stuff & that bowling ball bar caddy is friggin awesome! (nice sputnik also)

I scored this cool sunburst wall sculpture months ago.

I have too many wall sculptures, so I was going to sell it originally.
As too often happens, now I really like it & want to keep it.

exotica59 - That sputnick lamp is the coolest!!!

But the bowling trophy/drink yourself silly set is impossibly even cooler!!! Thanks so much for posting those pictures, I would never have suspected that bowling ball of hiding anything good!

Y'all are getting me hooked on the sunburst clocks... I love how they are staggered on the wall, great idea for a stairway.

yea, that bowling ball trophy cracked me up when I first spotted it, and now I've seen several.

Bigbadtikidaddy that sunburst wall hanging is just too cool! I love it.

Zebratiki the best thing about those star or sun burst clocks is that almost everyone I've ever bought still works! I'm lucky if the new battery op. clocks we have today last me a year before they crap out.
Since I'm off for the next couple of weeks with some broken fingers, I'll try to take some more pictures of the stuff I have around the place. My husband says I have a real problem with lamps, and I've got some wild ones. I have them crammed into all the closets around the house. I just can't pass up a cool old 50's lamp. I've got it as bad as the tiki bug.

This lamp was $8 at Sally Ann:


it's a nice companion for this lamp I got a while back:


this 3D picture was $3 at a hospital rummage sale:


lavalamp $5 at goodwill (the blue one -- the other one I bought retail):


cat head wooden carving, 25 at a church rummage sale. whoever did it should try their hand at tikis:

This weekend a friend gave me this stylin' vintage Italian espresso machine from the estate of her husband's aunt



(luckily there's one on ebay right now so you can see
what it really looks like)

I bought this cocktail shaker for 2 bucks



and i got a pair of these for 50 each



not too exciting but easy to draw. I won't have to draw much longer, I ordered a digital camera last night (from the shopping channel )
