Don't love going to South Coast, but I'd go more often if more of the windows showed this kind of imagination.

Vintage mid century teak side table. Gonna put a little restoration work into this and use it in our AirBNB project. I think this is Lane Perception but almost all the examples online have light trim around the edges.

Recent estate find... Persian Soumak Rug. Design is Heriz. Love how the color fade is even throughout. Might be using this for our AirBNB job coming up. Thanks to @woventreasuresinc for helping me ID this.

Finally got some biz cards. Thanks again to @scaredchipless for his killer penmanship work on this logo. Couldn't be happier. Cards feature extra thick stock and blind emboss by @morningprint.

Old Inuit / Eskimo tribal carvings out of Walrus Skull and Tusk. These are pretty old... Predate the ivory ban. From an estate of a world traveler / Indiana Jones type - Much of his collection went to the Bowers museum. On eBay now.

Got to see my old friends Darin & Jera today... Aside from just a being rad couple, they also happen to be among the most creative and talented people I've ever met. This is a TINY fraction of Jera's thousands of strangers shopping lists that she's collected over the years. When she first told me that she had trunks and folders full of people's grocery lists I thought she might be insane.... Then she showed them to me and I started to read between the lines. These are maps of personalities. They reveal things that have been present in people since their childhood. As a list maker myself, I find them fascinating.

UPDATE:SOLD. 1920's Seeburg Coin Piano aka "Nickelodeon". The full sized versions with keys were popular in saloons but when prohibition forced everyone into smaller speakeasy's they had to reinvent the player piano. This smaller sized version could be brought into basements and was much quieter so as not to arouse suspicion in neighbors. The "Holy Grail" version of this has a mechanical dog race that patrons could bet on (YouTube Greyhound Nickelodeon). The company Seeburg would go on to produce the Audiophone and Selectophone which had 8 turntables inside...one for each song you could play! Finally in 1950 Seeburg introduced the first all 45 vinyl jukebox. I'll be listing this later today on eBay. Contact me for more info.
