  1. sablemable says has sunburst wall clocks. However, the George Nelson designs are expensive, but designer Kenneth Wingard has a sunburst wall clock that looks just as good as Nelson’s and is cheaper. I bought the small Wingard clock and it is large enough. I think I paid 79 or 89 bucks for it and you have a choice of metal finish.

    They have vintage telephones and this is where I bought my yellow Bell wall phone for the kitchen. Most of the phones from the late Sixties up until they were discontinued, have never been used and come in a variety of colors. The owner of the site also offers repair service on old phones.

    Hi Pam –

    I’m not sure if you’ve ever featured Ryan’s Relics in Baltimore, but it might be a great thing for your east coast readers. His prices are truly outstanding for all kinds of fabulous furniture, including some MCM and MCModest 🙂 Take a look!

    Midcentury modern furniture includes many wonderful pieces woven with reed, Danish rope, fiber rush, cane and leather. Are made of the finest woods, walnut, rosewood and teak and were designed by some of the worlds leading architects. Sadly these materials don’t last forever and have reached the end of their life-span. There is a small but growing group of professional seat weavers able to restore these gems. visit to see if there is a weaver in you area. Some of the weaves are very difficult and restoration can be expensive but a significant number of pieces are museum worthy and deserve restoration!

    Can anyone give me advice on how to refinish an eames fiberglass shell chair? I found a couple that have been primered, but that’s flaking off and I don’t want to ruin the fiberglass underneath.
