Yesterday I ran over to Pittsburg (yes, that spelling is correct - no "h" on the end) to try and get that black panther TV lamp that I shared a week or two ago. Unfortunately, it already sold. I did look at the black poodle tray, and they had it marked at $11. I walked around the store to see what other TV lamps they had, and when I made it back to the booth with all the mid-century stuff, I found that someone had picked up the poodle tray. I hope whoever got it gives it a good home! So sorry that the lamp had sold Mick! I promise to keep my eye out for another one!
I did find a couple of things for myself. They have a new dealer at that place and so I checked that booth over pretty well. This dealer obviously doesn't know how to price things yet (even the people that run the store made that comment) as I was able to get these two pieces of Pyrex for $2 for the pair. My favorite piece is the black 1 1/2 quart casserole dish with the white snowflakes. The brown bowl with the white flowers is nice as well.
I also found this 1954 copy of Ladies' Home Journal Book of Interior Decoration. It is in nice shape, with a strong binding. Most of the pictures are in black and white, but there are a few in color that I'll need to share sometime. I found this book at that booth with all the mid-century stuff that had the black panther lamp. I thought it was a bargain for only $5.
Have a great Sunday!
