The estate sale in Pittsfield was a good one. I found some stuff to buy that wasn’t TOO bulky, as my storage space is bursting at the seams. In addition, there were lots of fun items that I didn’t buy, which I thought would be great for the blog. The best example: The vintage glider above. It’s “mill finish” aluminum (I guess?)… the chair hangs off a bar connected to those V’s on the end… and there’s a reversible cover. It was $20. A great price, I thought — I’ve never seen one like this before. But, I did not buy it, because I don’t have a spot for it. Here was its original habitat:
A covered porch behind the garage overlooking a backyard pool!
I liked the light by the pool, too. Groovy, baby.
Even though the house was a 1930′s-era duplex (I’m guessing….), the interior had been redone in the 1970s.
I fooled around with the image above, on my photo program. Gave it a little more black light glo.
I bought this light — I haven’t taken the top off yet to check the maker, but I’m guessing Virden or Moe. Don’t know what the DH will say. Perhaps I will serve him a Tequila Sunrise before I lay the 1970s Case de Torquemado swag light on him.
I bought some other little stuff, too — some of the pictures are in the gallery below. What are you finding in your travels this weekend?
