Last weekend we stumbled upon a really cool new place. Well, new to us anyway. We were cruising around downtown Phoenix in search of a good place to eat and decided to take a chance on Mac Alpine's Soda Fountain. It turned out to be a really fun '50s style diner with an attached antiques store. Their french sodas are delicious and the mid century furniture selection wasn't bad either!
The real prize was waiting across the street though. We noticed some estate sale signs at a baptist church in front of the restaurant and decided to check it out. It was like a treasure trove of cheap mid century accessories.
Here's what we got:
Clockwise from the top left:
The first thing we saw when we walked in was this danish shelf w/ sliding mirror. We were looking for something exactly like this for our guest bath and couldn't believe the $2.50 price tag. We did have to make a new back panel for it, but we had some stain left over from another project, so it was a quick, cheap fix.
We loved this gold bowl. We don't know anything about it, but the stamp on the bottom says it was made in the US and that the outside is 24K gold. The green inside is beautiful.
We had to grab this Jaxton food warmer as well. It folds open and has little trays for snacks and such.
Next we snagged a pair of danish candle holders. They came with a couple of butane candles too. You fill them like a lighter and they burn for about an hour. Pretty cool.
Last, but not least, we got this little plastic napkin holder for the kitchen.
I think we paid about $20 for everything! It was quite a pleasant surprise. Thanks Mac Alpine!
