Winter Junking Doldrums

Due to either the holidays or the bad weather I havent been able to get to the weekly estate auction that I usually attend in order to purchase lots of retro goodies, collectibles and old junk. I must therefore rest on my laurels and post pics of some past finds.  A total score: vintage 1950s Sputnik light fixture. YES! Shown in situ here at the pad. Estate sale. It wasn't for offered for sale but by the time I got through with them it was. Some call it nagging, some call it whining, I call it Perserverence.

Mr. Ree! Film Noir style whodunnit board game from the 1940s. This was the precursor to Clue. This one has so much more cache. Game tokens include a knife, a poison bottle and other delightful murderous weapons. Fun!

New additions to my fabric stash

Fifties lamps on fabric! Made with me in mind! Such vision and foresight at the fabric design lab! Plus cocktails and lovely retro ladies! Now, what to sew, what to sew....
