Jack is going to need a proper dresser in his room soon. I'm sick of modern particle board crap that falls apart after 5 years. Good quality new wood furniture is frighteningly expensive. So I've started an extremely passive search for a vintage dresser. Mostly this involves trawling through craigslist once a week for mid century dressers, and cursing when I see the ones I like were quickly sold. One time while driving home via 44th I made Ben stop for some "antique" shopping. Mostly crap, but there's a new store that specializes in mid century furniture called Retro Consignment. I was stunned at the fabulousness we saw once inside and couldn't stop taking cell phone photos. Observe:
On the left is a vibrating belt exercise machine, with sleds behind them. They also had bizarre water skis, looked like 1940s or 50s. On the right an array of typewriters
A beautiful, working projector on the left, on the right I want this blue chair and love seat set. But so impractical for my big boys!
I will be back with fists full of cash. Oh yes, give me time.
