Dark Blue Fabric & Wood Chairs

Just $5.00 each!

47371-16, -17, -18, and -30. To describe these chairs by saying, “These are four very pleasing chairs,” would have infuriated Ludwig Wittgenstein, and I’m noting this simply to wink & nod at our philosophy major fans out there; we know you’re out there. But how could you ever really know? These chairs exist in the difficulty of what it is to be, yes, and they’re also bargains. “The limits of my chair are the limits of my world,” or something close to that.

$75.00 each

Feast your eyes on APC’s Model AP7941 super-mega-ultra power strips. For when just a little bit of power won’t do, and/or you want to park one of these next to your neighbor’s wimpy 3-unit power strip to feel powerful-er. Each strip is approximately 6’-long and features 24 ports.

Gemstone Mushroom is Not a Candle

Just .25!

Perhaps because I was a child of the ‘70s I think everything’s a candle at first, but not this mushroom, oh no: it’s some type of rock because of course it is. And this gemstone mushroom will hold down your papers better than an actual mushroom because over time that would just get gross.

Small Rolling Table/ Desk

$10.00

47474-7. Here’s a small rolling jellybean sort of table the central inversion of which implies desk-itude while the rolling-ness implies short-term-itude. Or maybe just Hey! Mobility! For whatever reason, nearly all office desks & tables come in at exactly 29 or 30”-high, but this unique model is 26 ½”H. It’s the rebel of office tables. Measures 19 x 42 x 26 ½”H.

Mobile Computer Stations!

$5 - $10 each as marked

47432-79, -78, and -77. Ideal both for folks who have limited space or have an auxiliary computer and/ or printer, these three mobile computer stations are also useful for folks who want a laptop space for when they need to hook it up to a printer (assuming you either don’t plan on being too mobile, or you have the longest power cables ever). I know at least one person who uses cart-tables like these for big pump pots on the top level and cups & napkins on the lower level, but if you want to mix it up and put the napkins & cups on the upper level, you go right ahead. Each station measures approximately 26” x 2’ x 29”H.

Old Wooden Glass-Front Cabinet

$30.00

SOLD!
47614-3. This most-likely-reeeeeeelly-old wooden cabinet features glass-front doors so you can display books, tchotchkes, things your grandma insists are too nice to be referred to as tchotchkes, and photos of your grandma just in case. Word on the street is that’s a vintage Apple sticker on there, too. Measures 51 x 15 ½ x 73”H.

LARGE Mylar Mirror Panels

$25.00 each

SOLD!
Originally used for gallery exhibits so visitors could view objects from multiple angles, these unique (and large) Mylar mirror panels await your repurposing ideas. If you want to ensure your child has the biggest solar cooker ever in the history of whichever Scouts & Sprouts group he or she is in, we’ve got you all set. Or maybe you’re extremely tall and can finally have that full-length mirror all the short folks take for granted. Each panel measures approximately 40” x 139” x 3”-thick.

Matching BLUE Seats

$5.00 each (10 available)

47188-25, -30, -32, -33, -35, -36, -37, and -39. If Violet Beauregarde had turned into a series of chairs rather than a giant blueberry child-blimp rolled away by Oompa-Loompas, she most certainly would have resembled the very blue chairs you see before you.

Vinyl & Metal Mod Chairs

product thumbnail image

$10.00 each

47531-17 (green) and -121 (grey). Far more comfortable than their sharp angles would seem to suggest and both in great shape, these two relics from the last days of Dragnet won’t snitch on you or blow your cover because, of course, you have excellent taste in chairs.

Butterscotch Vinyl & Chrome Retro-Spacey Chairs!

product thumbnail image

$15.00 each!

SOLD!
47615-10 and -11. Not everything from what used to be the future is silver, you know. And I feel like the time is right for all things butterscotch to make a serious comeback. It’s delicious, it’s creamy, and Captain & Tennille sang about it, so there.

Blue Retro Office Chair

product thumbnail image

$10.00

47348-26. This gorgeously-angular chair is in almost pristine condition but for a single small round ¼” cigarette burn hole in the seat that we like to think came from Peggy Olson after she’d had the best idea ever, circa late ‘60s/ early ‘70s as the head of her own firm.
