1950's Eames Zenith Radio
I contemplated snagging this beauty.
Reconditioned, with new old stock tubes, so it worked well.
Colors in red and black, perfect for my living room.
And ending bid at just over $100, which isn't too bad, all things considered...
But, I bought a really cool space station style radio for my office, and it works too... But I really don't play it because there is nothing to listen to on AM radio these days.
So, this would become a $100 "decorator piece".
Not a bad one, mind you, but gee... I just could not justify the expense for something that becomes... A knick knack.
A $100 chair? You bet! I can use it.
A $100 radio that looks pretty... Ehhhh....
Not this time.
Maybe I can find myself a Christmas gift that really makes my heart sing. This simply wasn't it.
Know what I mean? Some things are so cool, but still just don't make you excited enough to have to have them.
Happy Saturday, to all my dear blogger friends!!
