Our New Spot

Mel and I finally decided to take the plunge and get a spot at 57th Street Antique Mall in Sacramento. We are now renting a display case to help move some of our smalls from our bedroom so we can convert our room to atomic 50’s decor. Here is a quick look at our new spot.

The case we are renting is pretty good size, 4ft by 6ft.

Here are a few of our owls.

We have so much more colored glass to get rid of still.

If you have some free time swing into 57th Street Antique Mall and check out not only our spot but all the other great items from the other dealers.

  1. Hi there,
    Do you ship? Love your glass pieces and that greenish/blueish ashtray!

      Hi Martha,

      Yes, we are willing to ship our smaller items. I’ll send over the price list to you. I also have to double check first to make sure that the items have not already sold at the store. Let me know what items you are interested in after I send the price list to you and then I’ll reply with a Paypal invoice including shipping.


  2. Is it OK if I ask if you know any cool facts about those vikings (and how much for the little one?) and also, how much for the red phone?
    It’s always fun to know what stuff go for on the other side of the pond.

    Love your latest resto jobs! You’re amazing!

      Hi Rascal,

      Thanks for the compliments! I sold the red phone (Ericofon) for $35. It needed some tweaking. The viking set is $144. Hans Bolling was known for his teak figurines in the 1950’s-1960’s-primarily the viking one’s. Kay Bojesen was also known for her teak figurines during that era. The monkey book ends that are in the booth pictures are by Kay Bojesen (have since sold).


      • OMG! $35!!! That’s a bargain! In Sweden we call the Cobra Phone and they go for about $110-170, well, haven’t lived in Sweden for a few years so it might be more.

        Thanks so much about the info, I’m gonna have a good read.
        We find that kind of stuff for nothing so I tend to buy anything wooden that say’s Sweden or Denmark. :))
        Got 3 vikings for ca 30 US cents each that was designed by Jacob Jensen, found them on some site a while back for $185 each. I love stuff like that.
        (Not that I plan to sell them in the near future but they might save me from eating cat food when I’m old and broke. LOL!)

        Keep on getting awesome stuff, I love to see stuff be restored and used instead of ending up on the landfill. The world need more people like U!

        Thanks Rascal!

        Wow! $175! It is crazy how much things go for in different places. For instance you pay more for antiques in San Francisco than in Sacramento.

        I agree the landfill has taken many great items. I have been to the landfill many of times and I have seen retro appliances, TV’s and other odds and ends just waiting to be mashed up. The odd thing is they will not let you take anything from the landfill. I appreciate your comment!
