Cage Cart

41755-3. You’ll be forgiven for looking at this cart and concluding it’s some sort of Harry Houdini-era implement of weirdness (or transport for 19th-century tigers); it just has that look about it. We’re sure there are perfectly reasonable uses for it today. No, you may not lock your little brother in this and drag him to the circus. Measures 30 ½ x 65 x 31”H.

Ladders, Ladders, Ladders!

$10.00, $20.00, and $25.00 as marked

It’s a little-known fact that the Weather Girls’ follow-up to their smash hit “It’s Raining Men” was “Ladders Everywhere at Reasonable Prices*,” but for whatever reason that tune didn’t climb the charts. Happily, we have a whole lotta’ ladders at very reasonable prices—hallelujah!—and you can climb them to your heart’s content.

*This is not actually a fact.

$1500.00 for the whole pallet

42246-1. This equipment is located in the Bowman warehouse: 7501 63rd Avenue NE, Seattle, WA 98115.

You know those Jaguar ads full of villainous British actors crowing about being addicted to power? They could have saved loads of money just getting a pallet of APC power strips (and probably had more power, too). This pallet boasts a quantity of 21 APC power strips (AP7941), and you can let all that power go to your head all you want.

Retro Sewing Machine

42125-140. This super-sweet Singer sewing machine circa 1951 has the Home-on-the-Range body style that might make you think it’s better suited to stitching up bloomers and overalls than Today’s Hot Looks, but it’s probably just a matter of time before we see the neo-prairie look storming the catwalks anyway. Update!: This is model 201-2 according to an helpful email we got!
