The season finale of Mad Men was Sunday night and it did not disappoint... except for the fact that it was the season finale and 13 episodes a season is just not enough. The detail and intricacies that the Mad Men directors and producers pay to the 1960's era is phenomenal - the props department on that set has to be a mid-century modern junkers dream! It is without a doubt the best show on television. Of course, I might be blinded by Jon Hamm's suave demeanor!
I did a little junking last week. And I noticed that two of my best finds were, in fact, mid century modern. Both of these would work well on the set of Mad Men, I am sure! Thursday, I went to the big city of Sedalia to run errands. There is an antique store there, Chelsea's Antiques, that I like to frequent. It is in a historic building downtown and crammed full of vintage treasures. One of my favorite things is the "Treasure Box" that sits outside. Everything in it is $1 a piece. I must say that this box has never failed me - I always find at least one thing to take home with me. This particular visit I found this Zenith Model K725 FM/AM radio. It has the original sticker on the bottom and the last date on it is 1951! It is near mint condition except for a little crack. Chelsea said she couldn't guarantee it would work and I said it was more about the look than the function for me anyway but guess what? It does work! Bonus!
