Well I know what I like, and so paid the $45 for the coffee pot lamp because I really wanted the shade, once home I put the red shade on the dancer and Viola!

While in Kansas we helped our friend move her father and stepmother into a new retirement home. They were trying to downsize while moving into their new place so a few things went to Goodwill and in the "Nobody wants it" pile was a "record player" and I thought to myself 'Just what I need another record player' and then I stuck my head down the hallway and saw it and...
Just like that I had myself another "record player"!
A 1946 Bendix mini-console Radio & Record player combo.
I am SO excited to finally have a console radio that has cabinet underneath to hide/hold stuff. No sooner had I gotten the ok to load it in the car, I already knew where it was going to go at the Casablanca! I've been searching and searching for a bed side table that was period and could possibly store stuff, and here out of the clear blue sky came one! I don't feel bad about using it as a table because that's what they had been doing with it since the cord to the player had been cut off. Just about perfect for the Casablanca, I owe a big thank you to those people!
