So The Moment I Say, I Am Bored Of Buying Vintage...
The moment I say I am bored of shopping and buying vintage...
A BUNCH of things pop up on eBay! And wow, it's a buyers market out there, I got great deals on all of these new additions:
A vintage "Space Age" AM radio for the space room office here. Looks like a space ship control panel!
Lights up to the sounds from the radio.
I don't know what this does, exactly, but it only cost me $7.50!
This is an atomic world clock, and what you do is dial it to the time zone and look to see what time it is in other countries on the map.
OK, not sure what that means, but it has that atomic molecule design, and I had to have. Price was right! $7.50!
I have been searching for one of these for a long time. It's a atomic molecule sculpture/spray. They are popular for mid-century homes, and usually cost a lot more than they are worth. This one was affordable because it does not have that tall, slim vase-like base design the others usually have. No problem-o! The colors are right too. They come in all colors, so I had to find one both affordable and in the right colors.
And a magazine rack. There are a LOT of vintage, mid-century magazine racks, but this one has the ever-important "atomic particle balls" on the feet and part of the design. Not many have this. Plus it's got two levels, it's flat, and will display magazines well.
I've been searching footstools forever... I have no clue why most of them sell for huge prices? But this baby was cheap enough. Does not have atomic particle feet like most of the things in my living room, but I'll just have to deal with the hairpin legs!
And this amazing chair... For $16.00!! OK, $47 shipping, but still. A great deal!
My other two white atomic chairs have this kind of flat spring design, and I'll tell you, it sort of "springs" you up and out of the chair, when you go to get up. Highly recommend!
This chair was the reason I was asking about things "matching" in my prior post.
I love the colors of this, but it doesn't really "match" anything in any of my rooms. Unless I simply have this "odd" piece and go with that, or something. But sometimes you just can't pass a deal or design up, know what I mean? =)
Happy Tuesday everyone, I hope you all are scoring great vintage finds too! =D
