|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!
