New Old Stock Virden lighting at great prices

virden-lightingEver the good citizen, I could have snapped these awesome lights up when I spotted them on ebay and then flipped them for a profit. But my attic “lighting store” simply cannot take any more. There is more lighting from this seller — from an old lighting store, the listing stays.

Win a Joybird Furniture upholstered chair — choose from 75 midcentury modern designs

Giveaway from a Retro Renovation advertiser

Joybird-Graphic411/27/14: We have a confirmed winner — congratulations, Heather! Thanks, everyone, for playing.

We wrote about Joybird Furniture earlier this year, when they entered the market as “manu-tailer” of midcentury modern style furniture. The company loves Retro Renovation, so recently they placed an ad directly with us (that’s them 24/7 in the bottom of our  sidebar to the right.) Woo to the hoo, the new ad becomes another part of the dough-re-mi equation that helps to keep the blog boat afloat — thank you, Joybird. As a cherry on top o’ the deal, I asked Joybird if they wanted to do a giveaway, and they jumped right to it.

So here you go, readers: Your chance to win a Joybird Furniture upholstered chair — they have 75 designs to choose from — you can also pick your upholstery and your stain. Continue on for the rules and deadline… Heck yeah there is more →
