@cougarider-

i've been using one estate sale vendor for a while, but either nothing comes up that's any good or i have to work.
there are very few decent estate sales here. not many homes in vegas are older than 20 years.

@ Slim and Gabby-
i realize it takes time, but patience is something i'm not at all good at. i wonder if there will be people in 20 years wanting the "help i can't get up" necklace.

alexforum:
that is a bit pricey, but i'd be willing to pay that much for the right color and if i could pick it up locally.
thanks for posting. i keep looking at estate sales, yard sales, and auctions, but have yet to see one.

I think to be realistic, "locally" might have to include LA or Phoenix.

And another thing all collectors experience: as soon as you find and buy something, you will happen along one dirt cheap or even free. Sort of like the concept of throwing something out and then a couple of weeks later, needing it.

here's a cheaper one. Not local at all, but at that price, shipping might be another option... Although I would understand if you'd prefer to see the chair IRL before buying.

egads- unfortunately i realize that l.a., san diego, and phoenix are local when it comes to mid-mod. the main problem is las vegas didn't have a lot of people here until the '80's. it was a very small place with very few homes.

alexforum- i'd like to see the chair irl, but for the right color and the right price, i'd be willing to do shipping. i'm surprised with how many contour chairs are on e bay right now (3). usually one shows up every month or two. usually all are pick up only and on the east coast.

Thats Awesome that you found one!!! just wanted to include that I have found a "few" collectors in my area FINALLY... through lots of searching of craigslist and blogs I found a few people that find, collect, refurbish, clean and sell pieces of MCM furniture!!! so it will be so nice to pick up some pieces once our renovation is complete. For our sofa we are going to go the route of IKEA, because we really need a sectional piece. We will need some side chairs, but that will be a bit easier to get wood and have the cushions upholstered, if need be. You don't see to many beds, but they are out there. I am also in need of a whole house "furniture make over" I know it can be frustrating when you just can't go to the store and "buy" it but you'll appreciate it much more LOL

Yay! You found it!

Look out-now that you've succeeded, you know you'll be able to do it again. Sounds like you've got your vintage mojo on!

Enjoy that chair-good taste that tastes good.

it's coming along slow, but steady. we're having a rough time finding drapes and haven't even bothered with flooring yet due to cash flow. i was going to post some new photos yesterday, but i can't remember how to do it.
