Russel Wright haul part the third (Status: tea-ing off)

The last email I sent to the guy with this RW collection asked him if I needed to bring boxes and packing material or was the collection already packed; no reply.  I loaded some boxes and bubble wrap, just to be sure, and made the hour long drive to the Dayton area.

Pt 2 of the Russel Wright haul (Status: swimmin' in coral)

I spotted the ad for 150+ pieces of Russel Wright in Craigslist for Dayton and fired off an email, assuming that that the collection had probably already sold, as the ad was three weeks old by this point.  I had no reply after five days but decided to send another email; this time I received a message back that the collection was still available (yeah!) but that was all it said.

Russel Wright haul Pt. 1 (Status:rosy, in the pink)

Right  (Wright) around Christmas I spotted an ad on the Dayton (home of two brothers named Wright) Craigslist for a 150+ piece Russel Wright collection.  I'm breaking the haul down into several posts for more bite-sized consumption.  Here are the first three boxes.

Regal 40 cup coffee urn (Status: like the coffee rocket)

Hosting the church social or bridge club?  Then you need the Regal 7016 coffee urn (sometimes referred to as "the Regal rocket"), the urn with a 40 cup capacity!

Jaru ceramics golden, cubist dog (Status: The Damaja or golden retrevier)

While out doing a swing through the West end thrift sores, I picked up this great Jeru gold, cubist dog statue at the Ohio Thrift in the old Central Point shopping center.  Man, I wish Bubba had been around for a photo shoot.

Jamaica Bay coffee cups (Status: two week wait for this?)

I'm still going through the huge haul of Russel Wright I bought a couple of weeks ago so for now I present some orphan Jamaica Bay coffee cups I picked up a couple of days after Christmas at the North High Goodwill.

Marshall Studios/ Martz Lamp (Status: I'm like the collectible lamp summoner)

I found this little lamp at the happy hunting grounds that is the North High St. Goodwill,  maybe a month ago.  I saw that it had a signature so I picked it up and I'm happy that I did!
