SOLD. Antique Industrial Desk w/ Swinging Stool. *NOT ON SITE, DM TO CLAIM* Certainly a project piece, though the extent of the project is up to you. We tend to preserve a patinated surface like this with polyurethane to enhance the look and feel of the age. The rest depends on your style. Are you the full-on do-over type, are you scraping the loose paint, repainting, glossing it up with more PU, or have you stopped reading cause you don’t need multiple-choice suggestions? 60” long, 24” deep, 31.25” tall. $500 – DM for buys or a video walkthrough.

PRESALE: 1989 Dodge Ram. Gonna see if you folks dig it before posting to a live auction site. See below.

We’ve been using this for work, and while I’ve gotten more compliments on it than I have as a person, it was never something we were going to keep forever.

Body’s in great shape and runs well for age, huge bed, approaching 62,000 miles.

Send a note if you’d like to discuss! If we don’t get any action I’ll be posting to the auction site.

What’s Dandy?

Our last names combined, in short (Day + Anderson). But what began as a vintage yard-sale vacation fund has grown into an entirely new, odd, joy-packed way of life. If there’s anything we can do to share some of that fun with you, we’ll be here.
