1920’s British Walnut armoire, available at the Estate Store West in Tualatin.
We keep opening the doors to see if it will eventually lead us to Narnia, no luck just yet. That being said, it is still being used as a spot to duck out when unruly co-workers drop by. We think it’d probably be put to better use in your home. As a storage place for clothing and hats, not people.
34 1/2″ W x 67 1/2″ T 18″ deep
In OK condition. Some minor scuffs both inside and out. The photos don’t do this piece justice, but I can’t do much about our sterile, hospital style lighting down here.

These must have come in with our recent sleeper sofa. Both of these were made in the middle of last November and are upholstered in a reddish-brown leather.
One of the recliners was carelessly handled so there are a couple slight scuffs on the upper part of the back and on the inside of one arm (as shown in the slideshow below). The other one is in like new condition.
The they are about 42 inches tall, 43 inches deep and 33 inches wide.
We’re selling these separately, $325 for the perfect one, $250 for the not so perfect one.

This press is amazing!
It is full of possibility and the ways in which you can use it are many if not boundless.
If you wish to flatten small botanical specimens for your scrapbook it’ll do the trick.
It’ll wring water out of little squares of paper when you’re handcrafting toilet paper after the fall of civilization.
It will crush self-loathing and doubt into thin layers, to more easily fit into cracks in your psyche so that you can become the fearsome creature you wish to be.
If you’ve gone maybe a bit too far in that direction already it can flatten monsters so that more of them can be installed under the beds of nasty children.
OK, maybe not all of those things. One should leave post apocalyptic toilet paper crafting to the professionals.
It is about 15 inches in maximum length and the press area is about 8 inches square.

This is in excellent condition, seems to work fine and so I’ve no idea how we got it but it sure is nice.
The sofa was made last October in the US by Rowe and features a queen size fold out mattress. The fabric is a fine charcoal and white weave.
It measures about 80 inches long (6 ft 6 inches) 36 inches deep and 32 inches high.

Early 1980’s Linda Barry Poodle With A Mohawk poster.
He knew what people thought of his kind: “High Strung”, “Spoiled Rotten”, “French”. But in the next 24 hours he’s gonna change all that . . .
He’s mad as hell.
He’s Poodle with a Mohawk.
You’ll never call him Fifi again!
It measures 22 1/4 inches by 28 1/4 inches and it is in decent condition.
As a word of caution to hairless dogs. . . This is mohawk town and the dog formerly known as Fifi doesn’t like hairless dogs.

The corporate directors of Piggy Bank LLC were happy to accept deposits but they weren’t so good with passing that money on in the form of loans to the general public.
Nothing new there . . .
In honor of the filing deadline for state and federal income taxes* we offer this lovely hand made pig shaped piggy bank.
About six inches from cork to tail and 4 inches tall.
*This was also the former deadline of the new Portland ‘Arts’ tax. Given certain political considerations the deadline was moved to May 15th. However, a quick perusal of the letter sent to my house showed that the letter was crafted before this change. When the date was moved someone updated the copy but neglected to read it thereby sending out a letter with this glaring error: “When does this tax start? 2012 is the first tax year. Like federal and state taxes the due date for the 2012 tax year is May 15, 2013.” Not only do the arts programs need a hand, but it looks like language education would benefit from having a few more bucks too. On the other hand if you’re in the mood to get frisky with the IRS you now have the City of Portland Revenue Bureau’s permission to put filing off for another month.

Do bed frames multiply like bunnies in the spring? That’s what it’s beginning to feel like in Tualatin. We’ve priced them at the low, low price of 50 wampum each just to see them disappear.
The big beast shown above comes with the mirror, free of charge. Queen size. We thought we’d discovered the target market for this piece but it turns out we don’t have contact info. It’s a shame really. GONE! SOLD!
One complete wooden bed frame, full size, vintage?
Two full headboards, one antique, one contemporary. These are headboards only and so you’ll have to figure out how to attach them to your existing bed frame. Or just drywall screw ‘em to the wall; they’re only fifty bucks after all.
