First up is this awesome bookcase. Not super old, but solid wood all the way. No particle board here! We had to bring the car around to get it. We could have called it a day then, but we suspected that more treasures might still be lurking inside.
Next was a cute little plant. It doesn't need much water, so it's just possible that I won't kill it. When we got home I put it in this little vintage Japanese barrel-type thing, and suddenly it looks like my wooden jaguar has something to be worried about. Why is he scared of a plant? I don't know, but I like the arrangement.
Then we found this trade ad for Some Like it Hot in an old issue of The Hollywood Reporter. Framed, it adds a bit of color to the room. The movie itself, of course, ends with one of the best lines in cinematic history.
But the best was yet to come. We finally found a table and chairs,
and they are pure '50s.
The guy we bought them from delivered them too, and then randomly threw in an old saddle. Supposedly it comes from Universal's prop department, so Gabriel pointed out that it may have been on some horse during the filming of Winchester '73. Well, maybe. Either way, who are we to turn down a free saddle?
