neat little vintage phone table

Ugh I can't wait for garage sale season. I've been so desperate for some new vintage stuff that I risked being an hour late for work today so I could go to an estate sale. It was worth it, I picked up this 50's phone table. I have absolutely no place to put it, so for now it is floating around in living room #1 (living room #2 is currently the "disappointments room", but I'm not disappointed in this purchase). I love it!

Anyways, being at this estate sale was like watching soft porn. This was a small small house, and I have never seen people rubbing up against each other in a frenzy to get by each other and fit in these small rooms. This was a survival of the fittest type of sale. When I was squatted down looking at this table, one very old lady simply shoved my ass to the side with her shin so she could get to a hand held can opener before anyone else got it. Jeez.

  1. That was either one hell of a can opener, or...if she's as old as I am...it was the first chance she'd had in a very long time to be that close to a man...LOL

  2. Sometimes in GW I want to clap my hands and yell "manners people, manners" like a high school teacher.

    The table though was definitely worth the hassle!

  3. Man, sounds like everyone else is desperate for some yard sales too! I guess its every one for themselves until the open air sales kick in! You did good though, and hopefully you got outta there with all your fingers & toes!

  4. i went to an estate sale in dallas yesterday and it was utter chaos when they opened the doors - at least 65 people trying to get in the house at once! of course, a trio of holt howard pixieware condiment jars were up for grabs, so that might explain why i drop-kicked a few people. totally kidding.
