bomb shelters


Are bomb shelters based mostly on paranoia? Yes. But for only a grand --- pretty cheap paranoia.

fast cars


 The most expensive car at $1.7m, Bugatti Veyron is also one of the fastest. The Top Gear gang take it up to 253 mph on a secret VW track in Germany. And apparently Simon Cowell owns one.




Though, I’d take a Ferrari F430 for only $200k. Bargain




perfect that Ari drives one:

shiny shoes


Picked up this vintage shoe shine kit at an antique store for $10 and it came with 3 brushes and multiple creams from the 1960's. The brushes are great but of course the creams are not usable.

Then, I got these two wooden shoe trees for $3 total.

it wasnt a hoax




or if it was, it was a damn good one

krouvi beer mug



Just picked one of these up at the Goodwill for $2. So awesome. Holds 20 ounces, so almost 2 beers. Krouvi Beer Mug

Though not sure what the 50cl means because Google calculator says 50cl = 16.9 ounces. And this definitely holds more than 17 ounces.

retro speaker continued

Snapped a photo of the retro speaker in the living room. Our TV cabinet was $25 from the thrift store; caveat: it was a weird green color. Stripped the paint off and stained it.

the good mod

If Don Draper were an actual person, he may have sat in some of these chairs from The Good Mod. 

Cool stuff if you got the cash and want it now. Though, I got a chair similar to the one below from Craigslist for $30 a couple of months ago and this one is $450.



More 1960s design:
