LOL...yes, coin-flipping is now how we make all of the life-altering decisions in our house. Can't get enough of the pickers... sometimes its frustrating to see some midmod treasures in the background that they skip over, but other times like with this fridge and a recent Philco purchase, they grab ...

Servel refrigerator

I was watching American Pickers last night on the History channel. they picked up a small Servel brand refrigerator called a Wunderbar, designed to move the fridge into rooms other than the kitchen. unforunately, it had been covered in cowhide but was originally some sort of blond wood with spindle ...

also, there is an in-depth tour that takes place most mornings quite early. It also allows interior photography but is much cheaper than the 3-day event. We were very pleased with it. The kitchen, which I think is skipped on the normal tour, is worth the extra cash!

just an FYI, there are cheaper alternative to FLOR tiles...they definitely have the best selection but your local office design store can often locate designer carpet tiles at a better price than FLOR brand.

I found mine here:
