Today I'm sharing some fun finds from the big auction site. I feel like my searches are all over the place and almost seem random. First up are a couple of fun vintage lamps. Then, check out the awesome retro clock from England and an amazing red kitchen clock. (I keep telling myself "I do not need this, I do not need this, there is no place in my kitchen because there is no soffit...ooohhh look, it's red...") Then as a follow up to yesterday's post, I found a 1957 Ford Fairlaine 500 Skyliner retractable hardtop...complete with continental kit. Of course, I can't search for fun vintage stuff without looking for some Kroehler, and the desk that I found is nothing short of amazing. I can't pass up a search for Heywood-Wakefield as well, and I found the perfect sized table and chairs for almost any mid-century home. Of course, I can't pass up my favorite Lane design, so, I've added one of the Danish style dovetail detail coffee tables. Lastly, as I find myself being drawn more and more to things from my family's heritage (the surnames of 6 of my 8 great grandparents originate in England), I find myself searching for things that play that up. That's where the fun vintage wrought iron light fixture comes in. I can already picture it hanging in the entry foyer in the house that I'm designing in my mind.
Please note that I do not receive any financial benefit from sharing these fun finds with you. I am not the seller of any of the items nor do I know or have any affiliation with the sellers of the items I have featured.
Have a great Thursday!
