One King's Lane Sale

Speaking of One King's Lane...

22 of my finds go on sale at 8:00 am on October 26th.
They are launching a new version. My items will be put
into categories with other items from other dealers.
Much like 1stdibs and V&M.


What am I going to do with my earnings?
Go back here immediately.

I bought a Paul McCobb stool by Calvin on ebay. For $200.
Then I stashed it in a closet. For 6 years.

Last year I pulled it out and had it reupholstered
with Dedar's cotton/linen/silk charcoal ikat.

Then I started looking for it's twin. They were out there but
they were no longer $200. Not even close. I finally found
one, though...from the adorable Nathan Turner.

It arrived on a giant truck.

The movers brought it in. White glove. Which was hilarious.

A little more ikat and a little more time and it will look just like this.

And finish this.

Lesson? Patience is a virtue. No, patience is bloody expensive.

Big Box

This giant embroidered tapestry that I bought at an estate
sale this summer just came back from the framer.

Now it looks like I heisted it.

I had it mounted in a big acrylic box.

To protect it from these small destructive people that live with me.

On second thought, maybe I should have had them mounted in a big acrylic box.
