Lucite Magazine Rack

Wanted to share my fun new find with you today!  I went to a very interesting estate sale a couple of weeks back.  It was the estate of a wealthy doctor in a tony neighborhood in Nashville.  The home was built in the late 1960’s to early 1970’s, and it was furnished and decorated to the hilt of that era.  I mean gold foil wallpaper, sunken living room (and sunken tub, of course), high-end art.  No expense was spared – it was the biggest and best you could get at the time.  But then they never touched it again.  Not since 1972.  A total time capsule – I was walking around with my mouth hanging open.  I love that kind of crazy stuff.     The bad news was everything was overpriced, no matter how hideous it was. 

But, under a table I found this fab lucite magazine rack.  Not a cheapo plastic knockoff from IKEA (no offense, IKEA, I love you), but a real-deal high-design model circa 1970.  It was $11.  SOLD! 

Now, before you think that $11 was a little high to pay – I checked ebay today (just out of curiousity) and found several similar vintage models for $250 and up!  Now THAT’S a bargain.  And my decor magazines have never looked so good!

The winner of my latest Prize Giveaway provided by Mimi’s Garden Florals will be announced at the end of this week.   It’s a cool set of retro drinking glasses from IKEA.
