let's go shopping....
















so i don't know about y'all but watching the news is totally depressing....constantly being reminded that we are in a major financial crisis makes me so sad. so i decided to do something to cheer up- going window shopping via 1st dibs- a one stop shop where i could spend all of my make believe money....
i think that this vintage NY subway sign is great and it will look fantastic playing off of my 1970 lucite and chrome barstools (some funky fabric and these would be bananas- ha, i had to do that for the zoe camp)!! and i can't go shopping and not buy something from lee, so in honor of that fab store pieces, i'm going w/ this tuxedo style, white leather, tufted sofa. oh man, i just found these fantastic 1960's auction paddles...those are so fun, i'll put those in my cart too.... wow, these green enamel lamps would look awesome on either side of my sofa and add a pop of color to my make believe shopping trip. oh and last but not least, i am buying this vintage sawhorse table...b/c if any of y'all need reminding, i want it so badly as my desk.....
WOW, its amazing how much better that makes me feel...if you are getting depressed from all of this crisis talk, take my advise and go window online shopping...so much fun to spend all of that make believe money!! now i just need to buy KW's imperial trellis for my walls and my day will be perfection!!

I like imagining what fantastic things were bought with those auction paddles. Cool idea for a display.

What a great idea...shopping instead of listening to the news. Although, we may all have to get used to virtual shopping only.

i've been "window shopping" for imperial trellis for several years now. every time i go to the trade showroom i pick it up...and then put it back! oo budgets...

Oh my goodness. I just discovered your blog and was surprised to see the auction paddles. They are by an artist named Susan Fama, she finds vintage objects and finds interesting ways to display them...and are at my store "rumba" in Santa Monica.
