What could it be?
I think I kind of learned the drill last Sunday. I scanned past this table and then asked about a particular shiny blue glass object, without appearing to be all that interested. The answer was given to me quite gruffly. "$80, take it or leave it." I said thank you and moved on. But noting the space location mentally.
I trudged back to that space some two hours later, in 95 degree heat. Sucking down my water all the way. It was almost quitting time. I tried to be unassuming.
What is the price?Is it Blenko or isn't it? Either way. It matches the bathrooms and adds that special something.
Umm, would you take $20?
And, I have been slightly irritated that in the Apartment Therapy story about the bathrooms, the criticism was that the new bathrooms in our mid-century modern home really aren't mid-century modern. How about if I hit you over the head with it?
The pretty blue decanter has a little Blenko tag. But who knows?
A Blenko bottle and a Saarinen Tulip Stool. Subtle. Right?
I picked up another little treasure at the Pasadena Rose Bowl Flea Market. There were mid-century paintings for DAYS!.
I bought this painting for like $80 or so. But I blew it just a tiny bit. And it is so cool and so mid-century.
Nice, right? When I got it home, I realized it had just the hugest crack running down the right side.
I need to not be so in a rush. And it was really hot. Not good for oil paintings. I took a really glarey picture so you can see the crack properly.
I don't think there is much you can really do except hope for the best... Any ideas? Serves me right for being in a hurry.
Boo. Ah well. Live and learn.
