We are calling this Roy's toy! He was so excited to find it and I think it is just perfect. Notice the crank on the right side? Yeah, this is a crank phonograph! When we brought it home it didn't work. A few minutes under the skillful hands of Roy and it plays wonderfully! It also came with a nice selection of vintage records. When not being used to entertain and amaze friends and family, I can see it being a nice buffet piece in the dining room.Here you can see the turntable. It also has a tiny cup containing a couple of dozen replacement needles. This photograph shows the record storage shelves and the front "speaker" area, beautiful carved wood inset scene backed with fabric. The speaker cover door also slides in so you don't run into it.
This is a dresser we bought for in our bedroom. It has carved wood handles and is the perfect size, not too big or too small (sheesh..I sound like Goldilocks!)
We bought another light oak dining chair. Our goal is to have seating for 12 but with twelve different but similar chairs. I plan to make some tapestry cushions for them (all different, of course).
So, that was our adventure to the antique store in Oil City, PA. The next trip will focus on additional chairs and a couple of vintage floor lamps. Fortunately Mother has an almost empty basement and a large garage so we do have a storage place until we get that key to the front door! Stay tuned!
