When You Can't Say "No" to Atomic Ranch, Modernism or other Cool Magazines, You Gotta Have a Cool Place to Put Them! Status: Fully Loaded.
I snatched this little guy up at a the same Antique Mall that is hosting the cool / pricey danish (Pearsal? Craft Associates?) sofa.
I've seen these on Ebay and some of the Retro shops around town but haven't
seen any at the thrift stores. I've wanted one for quite a while and when I
spotted this one (so freshly painted it was still "stinky"!) at Treasure Isle for
only Twelve Bucks I got that little surge of joy that we all know about. I gave
it the quick once over, sure that there was a major flaw...but other than an iffy
paint job it was solid! From 3ft. away it looks great, so the paint can be tolerated.
The paint has fully cured so the "stinky" has split the scene. I haven't yet found
the perfect spot for it though. Maybe the second bathroom, except Black won't go
so well in there. Dunno. Maybe just next to the Selig Z Chair!
