I've toyed with the idea of selling stuff. The problem is that I'd never be able to sell anything. I'd love to open a vintage appliance store, if only to see row upon row of gleaming chrome.

I can't part with ANYTHING until I've been able to live with and look at it on a daily basis for a couple of years. It's too much like putting your kids up for adoption :/

I just wish I had been into vintage when the homes around here were remodeled.  I could have scored some nice stuff fairly inexpensively.  It's amazing how many mid-century homes come on the market here with 90s oak kitchens... undecided

Remodeling is at a fever-pitch...

in Phoenix, anyway. Although there are tons of preservationists out here trying to slow it up a bit. Problem out here is that the fab 50s and 60s ranch houses fell victim to Los Angeles "flippers" who turned everything into home depot faux tuscan. Good bit for people like me is that a lot of fixtures and appliances have wound up in places like Habitat for Humanity and similar I make the rounds often hunting for the stuff!

We've had the flippers out here too, but they're remodeling 80s and 90s remodels.

Ya know what's funny about these remodels??

Another 5-10 years those houses will be remodeled back to what they looked like originally 50 years ago. They need to just leave good things alone--they weren't purposeless.

My sentiments exactly. It kills me when I see ads in which the seller indicates that they know whatever they're selling is of superior quality. I guess one can't fix stupid.laughing
