$30 - 1950s Coca-Cola Standing Drink Tub

Love this - I'd fill it with *gasp* beer for my next backyard grilling session...

OR - I wonder if it would work as a planter, for herbs? Great price, either way!

$50 - Pair MCM Lounge Chairs

These would work well for a small apt./studio...and mustard tweed? Can't go wrong...!

$100 - Vintage (1969) Snoopy Astronaut

"Snoopy, from "Peanuts" graduated from Red Baron to Astronaut in 1969, just in time for our moon landing - and he even took his flying scarf with him on his zippered space suit!"

Am I the only one that thinks this is the best thing ever?!

I have no idea what it's actually worth - but, come on, it's an astronaut...

$200 - Vintage Aluminum Coca-Cola Cooler

Oh Coca-Cola. Classic, American, over priced. A little research tells me that this cooler is listed for way too much!! Be careful with vintage Coca-Cola items (particularly 50s-60s), this is a recurring theme...

$15 - Polished Steel Pendant

Love the gas station-esque shape...

Hunted House: New H Street Location

I think it's common knowledge by now that Hunted House, formerly located on 14th Street, has moved shop over to the bustling H Street corridor. If you had not heard this, and instead were sadly hovering around their old location wondering where the hell they went...mystery solved!

Their new space is a far cry from the former walk-up location. When we stopped in yesterday and spoke at length with Mark, one of the owners, he was pumped about the new location - but also slightly missing the old one. The 14th street location certainly had a vibe - shopping there was an adventure through several rooms stuffed with great items, and I always looked forward to Mark's friendly greeting, head popping out of the middle room as soon as your arrival was annouced by that crazy-loud door chime...

The new space is a more tradition retail setup - one big room (with more in the basement!) where everything is clearly visible at once, but themed and arranged with the same great Hunted House style. I swear, there's more inventory now too. The collection seems more well rounded and there's a depth of items that I hadn't seen in the old location.

So, if you missed the official Grand Opening yesterday (If so, I feel sorry for you - Mark offered 20% off any items over $100...), be sure to stop in to 510 H Street NE, ASAP: you won't be disappointed!

$180 - Modern Desk

Love the look, just needs a little love.

48"w x 30"d x 29"h

$200 - Pair CB2 District Pendants

These retailed for $300 each online, so, not a bad deal here. They're no longer available at CB2, but check out this review I found on the site. They seem pretty large, so ample space to feature them in would work best.

$60 - Set (4) Vintage School Chairs

Ah, sweet memories of Montessori School! These are great!

The seller has several sets of varying sizes listed: search vintageschoolchair to see them all. 

$450 - Industrial Coffee Table

Incredible look, great patina - but, I think, a bit over priced. They've priced at retail on, thanks.

$250 - DUX MCM lounger with Ottoman

The ad suggests that you reupholster this piece - the bones certainly look worth it.

The Mystery of the JL Moller Chairs #78

The seller doesn't share the price and specifies that viewings are by appointment only. I'm 99% sure these are Moller chairs (my personal dream), so don't expect a good deal...if they are a good deal, then don't be a moron - buy them!

But I am intrigued - the picture shown above looks, to me, to be the EXACT same picture as the one featured on this blog post. The intrigue is that said blog is based in Portland,, either the seller has just stolen someone's pics of someone else's gorgeous Moller chairs because they were too lazy to take their own (wtf?!), or the seller is a scammer and doesn't actually have them to begin with...? OR, maybe by some serendiptous turn of events, these chairs from Oregon have made their way to Northern, VA??

Curiouser and curiouser...

I'd be careful with this one...and if anyone finds any more details, PLEASE SHARE!

$299 - Tulip Dining Table

The seller doesn't specify the manufacturer...but says it's brand new.

$295 - Wrought Iron Patio Furniture

Great lines, just needs a few bright, modern cushions!
