Oh crap I just had a flashback to my youth and went on an eBay bidding spree. I’m having those oh-so-familiar heart palpitations, the ones that arise when I really want to win something… then realize that would mean I’d actually need to pay for it.
On the plus side, everything I bid on is from Mad Men’s Sterling Cooper set, fits very well with my home’s mid-century style, and all proceeds from the auction go to charity.
Major highlight from the (highly successful) vintage sale? Discovering the furniture made by designer/carpenter-in-training Mitz Takahashi, a local DJ/blogger/personality. Though I had my eye on the clean, sleek stool picture above (does that description sound gross for some reason?) and a wooden lampshade I didn’t end up getting anything because, according to his blog, it would just feed Mitz’s ‘expensive oxycon habit.’
Yes he’s kidding.
Hmm, what? Oh, me? I’m just hanging out in the park on my Damien Hirst-designed deck chair ($425 exclusively for Artware Editions). Don’t you have one?
