Managed a couples scores this week. First, this Stickley Rocker. Jeff decided he wanted to trade his Bentwood oak rocker for this one. The upgrade cost a couple of hundred dollars, assuming we are successful at selling the old rocker for something close to our asking price.

And just for fun, Sharon bought a bit of decor for our kitchen — a 1914 toaster! The listing claimed that it works, but I doubt we'll be using it; we may try it once. It toasts one side of the bread at a time and you have to manually flip it over.
Sweet. A woman out here seems to be liquidating her Stickley collection and I was able to get two Ellis dining chairs with the inlay for less than half price.ReplyDelete
Lucky!! I think we paid a bit less than half price, but I'm not sure how much. Stickley doesn't tend to publish prices out on the internet; I don't really understand why.ReplyDelete
I remember making toast on such a toaster... It sat on a black cast iron wood/coal stove!ReplyDelete
OMG that toaster is AWESOME!ReplyDelete
A really Stickley chair? That's incredible! It's truly a work of art. I would be afraid to have such a nice piece of furniture in the house. Are you able to keep your dog off of the furniture?ReplyDelete
Er, *real. I should proofread!ReplyDelete
Dang. I'm in awe of your craigslist prowess!ReplyDelete
Wow! I didn't know they made toasters back then! How cool! I got some of the antique mason jars with wire around the lids. I'm going to use them to hold flour, sugar, etc if my kitchen ever gets finished...ReplyDelete
