Window Shopping the Big Auction Site

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!


  1. NO WAY!! I saw that Lane coffee table at the thrift store for $12 (managed to nab the end tables) for $6 a pc, but someone else got the coffee table...dang.

  2. ooooh fab finds so you find something in the UK you like and everything I want is in the US & a fortune to ship!

  3. Thanks for sharing. My faves are the red clock and the coffee table.

  4. The desk is wonderful, could so see that as a great place for my sewing machine. sigh.

  5. Oh, I'm just drooling all over that table and chairs! It would be perfect in my kitchen except then I wouldn't have room for my gray formica table. :)
