Rosewood Side Table, Johansfors Bowl, Blenko Candle Holders, and Kjeni Teak Tray

The rosewood table started as a wall unit cabinet. I purchased it (and some other pieces) for $15. It didn't have the wall brackets so I improvised by adding hairpin legs. The bowl was $3, Tray $2, and Blenkos were also $2.

Russel Wright for Bauer

I saw this on the bottom shelf at Goodwill. I thought ...huh, that glaze looks like RW.  Turned it over and sure enough, its a piece of Bauer art pottery designed by Russel Right. I think it was $2.99.

Upsala Slojd Teak Tray by Jonny Mattsson

I knew this was a steal as soon no matter what is was marked in Goodwill. A solid teak tray made from a single plank of teak is pretty rare. I turned it over, made in Sweden, and it was marked $0.99! Went home, and did some research. It was an excellent purchase!

Herman Miller Time Life by Eames

I purchased this at an expensive furniture store as part of their antiques line. It was in their clearance room and I negotiated like a pro get it for a fair price. I really wanted this chair and they seem to be rarer than unicorns in New England.

Roseville Mostique Vases circa 1916

I found these arts and craft Roseville vases at Goodwill. The first one was under $1 and the tulips were painted red with acrylic paint. Luckily it was easy to clean off. I just found the larger vase found last night. It was $5.

Gilbert Rohde for Heywood Wakefield

The chair passes the pepper test! Pepper (the cat) only sits in the best chairs :)

I saw this chair in Goodwill about 1 month ago. It was painted and horribly reupholstered. I told myself I would only buy it as a project chair if it was still there when it went half off. Well it went half off yesterday. It has been stripped to the original upholstery and sanded back to bare wood. Still a long way to go. The price was right at $5.50.

Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin

Purchased at the Habitat for Humanity Restore.

Roche Pottery Vase

I was happy to find this case. The price was a little high for me at 20, but I was always looking to add some Roche to my collection.  Mold number 31.
