Koford Teak Credenza
Made in Denmark. Sold Feb. 2010. Sellers remorse. Paid a lot for this at an auction.

Sold: Randers Wall Unit

"Hanging Wall Cabinet" 1960's Randers of Denmark
On occasion I sell furniture. Here is a piece I bought at auction for $30 (with the Koford credenza) & later sold. for I think $130. Thought my husband could display his Civil War relics. Turned out it wasn't quite what he was looking for so I put it up on CraigsList. It went home with a college student. I have buyers remorse. Probably part of a larger wall unit. SOLD

Estate: MoMA Corn Cob Holders

Picked these up at a nearby estate sale. The womans house was full of kitchenware! She had five of the same thing. She must have had 50 wooden spoons. 1961 corn cob holders giving me the finger. Set of 8 signed C. Hugo Pott, Solingen Germany. Chrome and nickel-plated steel. Found out they are in the MoMA Collection. Germans make scary looking things. The set of 8 sells new for $110.

I also picked up two "Butterprint" Pyrex dishes. One missing lid. And some German glass tea glasses.

Sold: Plycraft Lounge Chair with Ottoman

Plycraft Lounge Chair with Ottoman
George Mulhauser designed this American made walnut veneer molded plywood lounger. Foil label dated 1965. Bought for $36. Sold Sept. 2009. Bought this lounger along with the Adrian Pearsall dining set of the best estate sales I've ever been too. There was so much stuff I didn't get & I wish I had. Two modern globe chandeliers, two sellers cabinets with matching tables & chairs, pair Dansk iron star candle holders, thin taper candles, vintage yellow clock, brass wall spotlight, ect.

1950-60's three section bright yellow cabinets with interesting chrome pulls. Had the coolest chromed loop handles. Note to self - don't buy old cabinets. Think I made 15 bucks for lugging these on my back, cleaning them, & all other costs. I think, it sold quickly because it was listed on Apartment Therapy. In some guys garage now.
