Some stuff I got

I picked up this Holoku at the shop I work at...I got it for working yesterday

I feel like Jessica Rabbit in it!

1950s Angora Sweater

 Glen or Glenda? This Black 50s Angora sweater screams  "Ed Wood Fetish"

The other day Viv over at "Vivvi.Deluxxe" posted about the vintage Chrome and Formica 1950s dinette set she picked up. I was very envious because my formica table was gray cracked ice, and instead of chrome around the edge of the table, there was bright yellow formica. I had pink repro chairs so basically, I had a junkie mismatched set. Also, with yellow walls, the yellow clashed. 

One of the benefits of working at Time Zone is that people will come in offering to sell vintage. If my boss isn't interested, I can buy it if I want. Well, yesterday, for $60 bucks, I picked up this! It's the perfect size for our tiny kitchen. When we eat together we usually eat in the dining room, but this is perfect for the kids to have breakfast at.
