A score at 45 dollars! whoo hoo! Found it in the junkiest craziest ramshackle antique store of all time.... a labyrinth of room after room of dusty junk, no lights, barely a path to walk through... and this baby was just sitting there, waiting for me!


OMG! A Majestic! I found one locally last year and tried to get a price and she refused. I went back this month and it was gone. She sold it for $225. I would have paid that for it. It was nice to see one in person though...

Score!

It's turning into Lamptober. Got this one today at Goodwill for $17.00







I have a very similar lamp in black. Same gold pattern on it and same curved rods with ball ends in brass. One of my favorites. Nice find!

I found this at my local vintage dealer just before Hukilau and put it on hold. It is the most awesome dinette I ever saw. I love aqua, so it had my name all over it.

Chairs are perfect. Makes me even happier to walk in the door at the end of the day. Now we need people over to show it off!

I got this shadow box at Target on clearance for maybe $10. They had lots and are likely going down in price. Very vintage look, I still need to paint it black to match the kitchen, but it just was perfect!

The weird angle here is to keep the flash from glaring.

Swanky...
Love the table!
Been looking for one with matching chairs and no cigarette burns in the vinyl.
Congrats!

Love the wood-grain and the little crowns! Very unusual and cool...congrats!!! It's true, there's nothing like a great dinette set to cheer one up after a hard day

Swanky, that's the coolest dinette set I've ever seen! On top of that, the crowns are ultra keen! The chairs look like they're in pristine condition, too. I'd be hogging the aqua side, and not letting others sit there!

Boght this for a whopping $1.41 at the Buy-The-Pound (yes, they weighed it!). I figure it's 50's, but anyone got any other ideas? I love it! It's about a foot across, very big. Just the number 2 scratched into the bottom, no potter's name.

Well I found another Jim Flora illustrated LP cover today. For the Columbia 'Til Eulenspiegel', I have the RCA as well. I touched up the black background in photoshop a bit as the black had faded.

I haven't had time to search for much of anything lately but a local women who'd seen mid-century mod stuff on my blog emailed me about a friend who was trying to sell a set of four of these TV trays w holder. Of course, I bought them. I've no idea of their age.

I stumbled upon some more caveman stuff on internet auction sites that's very similar to the $4.00 thrift store find I've posted to this thread previously. I'm happy to find out these cavemen not only have pedigrees, but are also selling for more than $100.00

I recently bought this nice little seafoam green w/gold speckle dish. It matches the walls in my dining room perfectly.
All that needs to be done now is a little cleaning to get the old wax out from the bottom. $2.99.

Beyond Tiki finds this past weekend:







Totem pole salt & peppers, and a tiny little totem pole, probably only 2" tall.
