Some Cool Odds & Ends

IMG_1830

These are some really cool Erich pieces. These are such cool tropical images. The kicker is that they are in Carlo style frames.

After we finished stocking our booth at Midway we decided to do a little shopping and found a few items. The first items are a couple of Erich art pieces. We have one Asian Erich piece hanging in our bedroom. I have not seen many pieces by Erich and there isn’t any info on the artist either. These look like a day in the life of Polynesians.

The next thing we came across was this really cool Syroco Clock. We have 2 or 3 of these already. The things that caught our eye were the two starburst accessories to this clock. We never see a complete set for these clocks.

These are soo COOL! This clock didn’t come with a key but you can get these easily.

The next thing we found was this really cool vintage floor lamp. I love how simple it is but it still screams cool. We needed more light in the Tiki room & this should do it.

This is a really simple Tiki floor lamp and that is cool with me. I am going to replace the shade with something cooler.

This lamp has a huge diffuser and it takes a bulb the size of a lighthouse bulb.

These are just some simple things we came across. It has been a while since we went antique shopping and it was nice to get out and do what we really love. Mel and I are fortunate because we both have a passion for antiques. I count myself fortunate to be able to share this passion with my best friend.

We have not found a large stash like this for a long time! I couldn’t stop smiling for like 8 hours!

Mel and I went to Midway Antique Mall a week ago to initially stock our new booth and when we came through the doors we noticed a set of Carlo of Hollywood paintings that were new to the store. Mel and I were soo excited when we saw this set that we scanned the rest of the store and we found eight more Carlo’s that we did not have in our collection! We told Mark and Ann, the owners of Midway, that we wanted them. We picked them up today. Happy Day!!!

It is hard to find a complete trio. This is our sixth set of trios!

This trio is very cool. The colors are still so vibrant and the imagery is timeless as usual. I love the Polynesian guy in the canoe! It always amazes me how Carlo did so much with his art when it is so simple. These will look great in the……….TIKI ROOM!

I just love her outfit! The pink edges of the art make it pop!

Not sure where these will go. They might look good in the Tiki room as well.

Of course these will be in our Tiki room.

I have wanted this set for a long time.

What amazes me about all these Carlo’s is how vibrant the colors still are.

Panthers are always cool! This one needs a little touch up on the black but it looks really cool as it is.This one does not have the forced perspective frame that all the others have.

Mel and I were just saying the other day that there has been a drought when it comes to new Carlo’s to buy. I guess this was like a torrential down pour of good luck! The good thing is that we might have a line on six more Carlo’s. Now the hard work begins, where can we fit 10 more into our 80+ Carlo collection. We are almost at a 100 Carlo’s!
