I did not get out to the thrifts, garage, estate or auctions much this week but I did find this little 31 piece Royal China (I'll call it a) coffee set at Goodwill (not the same one where I found the Jamaica Bay jackpot). Woo-hoo!

I was at the Goodwill where I found the Jamaica Bay and (maybe) Pearsall chair today and I found this Danish gateleg table. The finish is totally shot and I will do a posting of the refinishing process at a latter time. My problem is that I can't read the name of the designer or manufacturer.

I traveled up to Akron to visit my friend Kelly about a month ago but it has been so blasted hot in Columbus that I just could not drag the table and goodies out into the blast furnace heat to take pictures.
But wait, there is more after the jump- stuff that wouldn't fit in the group picture!

Stopped by a couple of Goodwills here in Columbus and hit the jackpot at the second one! I can not quite identify the chair but it has the hallmarks of an Adrian Pearsall design or it might be a Widdicomb. Paid for the chair then looked at the rest of the store- POW! an 90 piece set of Taylor Smith Taylor, Color Craft, Jamaica Bay china! I also got a nice teak magazine holder, too.

I was out thrifting in Columbus and I only found a couple of nice chip and dip sets. I found this California wear set at a Village Thrift store; it had a red $8.99 tag but red tags were discounted 75%! Wish it had it's lazy susan...

I had to go to my hometown to give my dad a lift to his doctor's appointment in Columbus. I gave myself plenty of time to hit all my secret treasure sites but the booty was kinda thin this trip.

Before there were actual surround sound systems you had a lot of audio engineers experimenting with wacky speaker concepts like the Allied/ Radio Shack Nova Omni speakers that Bubba is sitting by.

I was very lazy this past Friday and did not leave the house until late in the day. I was driving in the Clintonville section of Columbus when I felt a magnet force drew me to the curb and me turn my engine off; I left my car to investigate what turned out to be a flying saucer base! Here is photographic proof that aluminum saucer pans are living right here in my city!

I found this June, 1957 issue of Nugget magazine at a very cool garage sale (where I found the flowered curtains and the two American of Martinsville end tables). It's in pristine condition; let me share a bit.

On my birthday, last november, the Thrift Gods (Salvi, Goodwin, Volam and all the other lesser deities) decided to give me a great big present of two Paul McCobb arm chairs (host and hostess chairs)!
