Shoppin' on the South Side. A great little shop called Cool Stuff Really Cheep (sic). Status: Awaiting your arrival!
First, sorry for the crappy camera phone pics. I didn't know that I was headed there today and didn't have the "real" camera with me.
My mom put me on to this great little shop in South St. Louis. Whoa whoa whoa...

The "Pod" chairs. These are a lot like Overman swivel chairs. I have a total of four. They are great for extra party seating! Status: Gone.
These very stylish chairs are so comfy. Great for lounging in front of the TV or playing cards with friends. Even if you don't win, you'll look good loosing!

Wow, isn't this great? This Van Gaard (signed "Van Gaard" but more likely painted by a company artist working for Mr. Lee Burr Reynolds at the Van Gaard studio) is in AMAZING condition especially for being FOURTY THREE years old!

My girlfriend is as crazy as I am...I mean...she's crazy. Not me. Vintage Costume Jewelry. Status: Un-freakin-available
So, like I said, I collect all manor of 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s vintage, retro, danish modern and midcentury ephemera. What I don't collect is vintage costume jewelry. Wanna know why?

One of my four Predicta TVs. A little video to cheer up your day! Status: Not without a BIG wad of cash.
She's not for sale but I figured I'd show her off anyway. She's almost as pretty as Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday! It's a 1950s Philco Predicta "Holiday" model. At 20" and having portability from room to room, she was quite a luxury in her day. Some day I'll have her all tuned up so that the picture is a little less squished. This was a C-list find. In fact, all my Predictas have come from C-list.

I picked these up (four total and one extra seat and back) because I thought a lady was interested in buying my danish barstools. The ones I actually USE.

Hard to find Broyhill Brasilia livingroom side tables. One in Very Good Condition. One, top needs refinish. Status: Gone.
I snatched these up with a complete dining set and bedroom set at an East St. Louis (!) thrift store a few months ago.

Picked this guy up from thrift store on the way over to help my mom with her computer (she also sells on Craigslist!). I had to stop. I just couldn't help myself.
