Bread, Bars, Burlap and Baby

Good Morning!

Here's the update on yesterday's attempt to source new inventory for L.H.O....

First:  BREAD

What I didn't buy...but really hope someone reading this does because it is fabulous!

Vintage but working electric Bread Slicing machine.  Reminds me of the one they use at Eatzi's!!
Yesterday's Price $150.00

I just called the seller and it's still available for $75.00!!!
If interested, call Judy 214-597-7591 or see it in person at her sale:
8838 Kenton Drive, Dallas 75231

This is a gem and I'm pretty sure I'm going to regret not buying it to keep for myself.

Second:  BARS

Along the way we found this cute little record cabinet.  The record player and the tubes are still in tact so I assume someone could get it functioning again.  But we thought it would make a darling side table or BAR.  The top doors slide to hide the mechanics.  Remove the mechanics and you'd have a sweet little liquor cabinet.  Now on the floor $132.00 (sale price).

After visiting sale after sale and being very disappointed in the offerings we decided to head to Grand Prairie to visit one of our Importer friends.  He had just rec'd a truck filled with (what we're calling) the Cantina Collection; fun, vintage, colorful BAR furnishings that you just don't see everywhere.

 Insulated Pacifico Cooler w/drain
$675 Sale Price (reg $899)
33.5"H x 29"W x 19"D

 Corona Hi-Top Pub Table
Top is a metal Corona Sign 29x29
Rustic Base 
Sale Price $281  (reg  $375)
(2x) Leather top swivel bar stools shown above
Sale Price $258 (reg 345 ea) 

How adorable are these?   Vintage french step tables, painted and dolled up with burlap coffee bean bags covering the traditional leather.  Great work Kate!!  I only snapped a photo of one, but there's a mate with a complimentary yet different burlap inset.  Priced $125 each.

 And finally: BABY
My favorite subject!  Very, very rarely when we're out picking do I buy anything for ourselves, it's a discipline you have to have in this business unless you want your home to look like the residential Salvation Army. 

We'll, we broke our own rule when we came across this little rocking chair. As Madison is growing so quickly, it won't be long before she needs her own chair to sit with G.P. (grandpa) and watch Fox News.

Yes, that slobber produced two front teeth!
