I Almost Forgot That I Picked This Log / Magazine Catch-all At The St. Clair Antique Mall A Few Weeks Back. Status: Sharp, No?
I'm not usually into brass fireplace stuff but this is pretty cool. I passed on one just like it at another antique mall about a month or so ago because it was all scratched up but this one is in nearly perfect condition...or at least for a used item.
I purposefully avoided taking a picture of this at the St. Clair antique mall because I knew I
was going to eventually post about it but then I got so busy with so many other posts that I
forgot all about it!
I've already got a pretty cool log / magazine rack...but can one have to many cool racks?
Yup. I'm pretty much a walking talking living proof of this. Too bad. I can use one for actual
magazines and the other for actual logs! So there!
Now if only I could find a cool looking pair of fireplace andirons. We stupidly passed on a really
neat Art Deco set (that could have passed for vintage modern) at an estate sale a couple of years
ago. I've been kicking myself ever since. Anything but the ubiquitous vintage brass andirons are
hard to come by. Anybody else got some cool looking fireplace accoutrements? I've got a
couple sets of cool tools and now two log racks but we still need an outdoor rack...and to
actually buy some wood to put in it!
