Woddity watch: Rare vintage medicine cabinet, pink pyramid Eljer kitchen sink and ummm….

pole lamp medicine cabinetThis blog is fundamentally about helping owners of mid century and older homes “find the resources they need to get their projects done.” Layer on top of that: I am a total cheapskate… Love the hunt… Love the quality of the vintage…. And maybe most of all, love the odd… the weird… the eschewed… the failed underdog that was disdained by fashion, (likely) then, and (likely) now. Oh pooey on fashion. Here, we love the weird vintage — the inventive, but failed, dream — but hey, at least someone was dreaming. See our entire wonderful oddity — woddity — archive here. And today, a threefer: First, a kind of “pole lamp” style medicine cabinet. Wodd!

Both the pole light medicine cabinet and the Eljer sink are available from this seller, who gave me permission to use the photos yadda yadda yadda:

    I can totally see that medicine cabinet used in a situation where there’s a window over the bathroom sink. Very cool!
