Mel and I had a few good finds, let me tell you about a few of them.
It’s the end of another weekend and Mel and I were able to squeeze in a little picking. Here is what we came across!
A couple John Hauser, circa early 1950’s iconic “clamshell” chairs aka “hoop” chairs.
These are in good shape for their age. We plan to recover them in either aqua or pink Naugahyde. The frames need to be sanded and repainted. These will look soo cool on the patio with the vintage Royal Chef BBQ!
We were able to score a set of these really cool Grundig speakers for $40! Although, my stereo repair guy Luis at “Stereoadvisor” told me if you’re going to buy any vintage electronics, he recommends Telefunken. He said the sound of these German units are unbelievable. I have one Telefunken table top and 3 floor counsels and I have to agree with him.
But, I’m a sucker for pointy legs and couldn’t resist these Grundig speakers. These will be pretty easy to restore…just some stripper, light sanding, a little bit of stain, and semi-gloss polyurethane for the wood. As far as the speaker fabric, I’ll remove it and clean the stains with “Awesome”.
The final item we got was this fantastic tension pole lamp. I have never seen this style before and really dig it. This is a keeper.
All this light really needs is to be cleaned up and put into the perfect spot!
Wow – super stuffs! The lamp is especially fab!
Thanks! Yeah, I don’t think the lamp will make it into the shop. That’s gonna be a keeper.

Any way you still have that awesome coral tension pole lamp with the diamond shape cut outs and want to sell?
Oh the horror…that lamp broke during our move. I’m still grieving it’s loss. I’m trying to figure out if I can do something with the parts that are left.
Have the stereo. Are the speakers for sale
Sorry, we’re keeping them…for now :).
Are you selling those grundig speakers?
Hi Elena. They’re sold.
