Nautical Beach House Decor

 I have always wanted one of those Cape Cod cottages on the beach but it's just not going to happen here in the Midwest. Considering we are surrounded by the Great Lakes there seems to be a never ending supply of nautical themed items. The ship ashtray, hour glass and amber liquor bottle would just the right touch to an cottage whether the beach is an ocean or lake. the items are available for sale at my The Garage Sale Archeologist Etsy Shop and priced to sell.

Catherineholm Frying Pan in Lotus Pattern

It seems like every garage sale season I find one Catherineholm piece of cookware and this year's find came early. This frying pan does have some slight wear to it so I have priced it very well! Get it while it lasts.

Catherineholm frying pan is available for sale HERE!

Well like I said it was priced to sell and it did just that! SOLD

It's A Mad Mod World

When I was a little girl in the 60s we had neighbors, Harry and Celeste, whose house inside was the perfect mid-century modern decor. I loved any opportunity to go inside and just look around. Our colonial house and bare walls was a far cry from Celeste and Harry's home. They were the hip couple in the neighborhood. These items remind me of Harry and Celeste's back porch bar area.  The top photo is a Libbey whiskey decanter set made in the 60s and is boldly modern in color and design. The bottom photo is of a rosewood handled bar utensil set made in Japan. Somehow these two sets were just meant to be together.

Michael Lax Copco Frying Pan

Michael Lax was a popular industrial designer, whose designs for Copco cast iron enamelware, in the 1960s, transcend well into the 21st century. This lovely frying pan, in vintage mint condition, is a classic example. He graduated from the New York School of Music and Art in 1947 and in 1951 from Alfred University. Lax's designs were also made by Dansk, Rosenthal, Salton, Dunbar Glass and Metaal.  Mr. Lax was born November 8, 1929 and passed away May 28, 1998.
