It’s so great that readers are still able to design their own mosaic tile patterns and colors using Daltile’s Mosaic Pattern Designer. I keep thinking, one day this will just be gone, but it’s still there. I chased after Jamie when I saw her comment in this story on the blog.Heck yeah there is more →
I’ve written about Hall-Mack Relaxation Units before — but looking back at some old stories on the blog, I was reminded that Satin Glide — a maker of steel bathroom vanities <– see 1963 brochure here — also made this nifty recessed bathroom cubby that ensured… you would never be bored while you… went about your business.Heck yeah there is more →
More wonderful woddities this week from seller nomoredrama4me, who has been slowly unpacking their father-in-law’s warehouse of new old stock items and listing them for our delight and purchase on ebay. This time, a stash of five vintage Hall-Mack Extendo-Bar towel racks for the bathroom — on our list of 18 rare vintage Hall-Mack bathroom accessories. These sold out in a flash. But with a warehouse full of goodies being unpacked and listed for sale daily (affiliate link), maybe there will be more soon. Heck yeah there is more →
UPDATE: Congratulations to our winner, Vanessa, whose number came up and is new owner-soon-to-be of this TP delight! ENTRIES NOW CLOSED. Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful bathroom stories! I think I will do a round-up of my favorites – ’twill be hard to choose! We’re giving away a rare and wonderful vintage toilet paper holder. <– Seriously: Where else on the interblogs would you ever read that sentence? This giveaway is made possible by Renovation Goddess Christy in Bellevue, WA, who scored it at the Goodwill and is excited to see it go to a happy home. Heck yeah there is more →
Yes, this handy at-hand invention allows for the stealthy storage of a spare roll behind its chrome exterior, so you (or your guests) will never have to fear being … stuck — so long as they know the Conceal-a-Roll’s clever secret.Heck yeah there is more →
Every week I seem to be getting a new message from a reader — someone who has just made an offer on, or bought a 1950s 0f 1960s house — all excited that there is one of these in the bathroom: A Hall-Mack Concealed Scale. I’ve spotted these fold down bathroom scales and written about them several times, but to help these readers, I thought I’d do this stand-alone story so they can get right to it.
Update: Sold on ebay for $306.59. “New Old Stock is golden,” the New York Times quoted me. 🙂 Yup, I am the huntress: Another rare and wonderful oddity found in the package and for sale on ebay: A Westinghouse Appliance Center, a newley discovered design maybe. In this ebay carousel, there also is a highly desirable revolving hidden Hall-Mack toothbrush holder.
Precautionary Pam reminds, if you buy the appliance center, be sure to consult with a licensed professional over wiring and installation.
Commenting on my FAQ about where to find things like replacement chrome soap dishes and other bathroom hardware parts, reader Lauren suggested we take a look at the Larsen Supply Company. Indeed, it’s a keeper. Looks like this company wholesales a line of reproduction Hall-Mack bathroom hardware — repro Coronado towel bars and rings, a soap and toothbrush holder, a toilet paper holder — and two styles of robe hook in a size I find most desirable.
