Last week, Jerome and I finally managed to hit the thrift store down on Dorchester Ave. I have no clue what the name of it is and it has weird hours. When we saw it was open, we jumped at the chance to go in. It's a small, one-room store tight on space and huge on odd-ball stuff. You literally need to take a whole afternoon to just sift through the piles.
But it's worth it. For $80, we got:
-two chrome patio chairs (shown in my last post)
-a rare Hallicrafter Echophone EC-112 radio
-a vintage Yashica 8-ES video camera
-Haring, Warhol, Disney still in the package
-an original vinyl recording of the Happy Birthday song
-and a random record the guy threw in for free.
Our other great scores came Sunday when we went to a yard sale in Arlington. The description on craigslist mentioned several mid-century items so there was no way I could pass that up! For just $30 we got:
-Set of 6 Danish Arm Chairs
Several ceramic pieces
-A creamer and sugar set
-A Beach Boy transistor radio (shown on the shelf in the first pic)
-A set of vintage melamine dishes that I'm too lazy to take a pic of (for use in the living room of course!)
-A 1965 Olivetti adding machine
I can't wait to see what we get next week.
