This is why I have to stop going to the local thrifts. Oh, if it were that simple! I ambled up to one of my favorite neighborhood junk stores, you know, just to stop in...see what's new... I am not buying anything.... I am NOT buying anything!
Why did this lemon yellow, Western Electric Sculptura phone have to be sitting there taunting me? I grabbed it and carried it around, still in my heart thinking that I would leave it behind when I left.
It was the little Heath vessel that sealed my fate. Heath Ceramics is a Sausalito potter started by Chicago Art Institue alum Edith Heath way back when. Heath has pieces in the MOMA as well as my kitchen.
Good thing I kept going, because I scored a fine Digsmed Danish teak platter and bowls at the Salvation Army in San Rafael later on.
Who am I kidding? I can't stop. As this blog gets fleshed out, I may add commercial links to either ebay or etsy in case anyone wants to help me thin down a bit.
