Crossing the Line

I finally did it.

Admittedly, I was already riding pretty close to the line with the MCM furniture collecting, but I've now blown past that divide and entered full-on hipster territory.

Yes, I bought a fixed-gear bike.

If you're interested in joining me, I picked my State Bicycle, Co. ABACABB 2.0 up at Cherokee Street Bikes.

So far, so good.  I've already lost 17 pounds in the last several weeks!

The flock grows

Man, was it a good weekend on for Craigslisting in St. Louis or what?  MCM goodies kept popping up everywhere.  With a full van, I didn't get in on much of the action, but I did still manage to make out quite well.

The big score of the weekend:  another Artisan House by Curtis Jeré Birds in Flight wall hanging.

"Boy, you really order a lot of old retro stuff"

I really jumped into this Ebay thing with both feet.

So far you've only seen the teak Zooline monkey, but my recent foray into online auctions has resulted in numerous visits from the UPS guy.  "Boy, you really order a lot of old retro stuff," he says.  He hasn't yet seen my attic/hoarder's den...

One such package contained a little something that I've waited forever to get my grubby mitts on, a Panasonic RC-1091 "Spencer" clock radio.  While an alarm clock may not excite some, this is one of the first pieces that really sparked my interest in modernism and holds a special place in my heart.
