Spending a lot more time in my hometown, which means THRIFTING! (Status: It's boring in my hometown)
My dads health has taken a slight down check and his mobility is getting pretty limited so I am the good son and travel to my hometown, spending a few days each week. He sits at home, listens to Rush Limbaugh, watches sports talk shows and sleeps- which leaves me bored and with time to hit the thrifts.

I saved the Sun Coast pieces that were in the worst condition for last. Maybe I should have passed on these end tables and the coffee table, but I got a good price...

There was only ONE Drexel Sun Coast chair available at the auction. What happened to the rest of the set? Who knows. It's a dead ringer for a Declaration chair.

Last week I won a couple of on-line estate auctions for five pieces of the rare Kipp Stewart, for Drexel, Sun Coast line of furniture. I'll show these off over the next few posts, sadly, it is a story of good, bad and ugly. Here is the good!

Just a plug for the Cincinnati Mid Century Modern show February 23-24.
This years special exhibit will be on Russel Wright.
It is a great show with some really lovely pieces!
