Stop Looking and You'll Find It - Salem North Star


I actually never even started looking for Salem North Star china because I figured that it is so popular I would never find a good deal on it. Well, I was wrong. I randomly opened craigslist one night and there was an ad for mid century modern furniture. I assumed it was all too pricey for me since they knew it was mcm, wrong again! The 53 piece set was priced right for me so I emailed them. They called me back and just so happened to live five minutes from me. I am so excited. Now I have 54 pieces of Salem North Star. Oh, and the lady threw in 10 cool atomic juice glasses at no charge!

Someone's Brother Stole a Chicken From the Fort Wayne Zoo but That's a Whole Different Story...

 The optimist in me says that you can find something neat and exciting anywhere you go. Sometimes it is difficult find, sometimes it's not necessarily from the middle of the 20th century, but if you look hard enough something cool is always there. In my last post I told you that I'd be bringing you some stuff from Fort Wayne, In. Click the link and you'll see that I didn't have to look very hard to find a lot of stuff worth taking pictures of...

James Dean Run 2014



I had no problem saying "sure" when Megan, my girlfriend, asked me if I would go to Fort Wayne, Indiana and be her date for her class reunion. It would have been worth the trip just for that, but when you have hobbies such as cars, bikes, thrifting, and vintage stuff, it's pretty easy to turn a nice little trip into a packed weekend of awesomeness. Luckily Megan is super cool and had no problem making some pit stops during our journey. During the next two weeks I'll be bringing you four posts from that trip. You'll see vintage knick-knacks, mid-century architecture, furniture, hot rods, customs, choppers, and more.

The first of these four posts is about the James Dean Run in Fairmount, In.
