On the Next Episode of Hoarders

While helping to empty out her husband’s storage unit, a wife makes the startling realization of just HOW MUCH mid-century furniture, accessories, objects and art he has been “collecting” over the past several years.

The perpetrator unloading the third of eleventy million cartloads.

    It’s pretty awesome. Made in Brazil, perfect for tots! He’s always willing to sell for the right price, Annika. ;)

    Um, well…if ya’ll have a conversation and decide to get rid of any of that beautiful mid-century furniture, I’d be interested! :) I can’t find any good stuff in PA.

    I covet the bentwood rocker, unfortunately I don’t think my ass will fit it.

    At least his hoarding results in useful items, we have quite the collection of old design magazines and bike parts around here.

    I agree . . . at least he has good taste! My husband’s hoarding is more in the records arena . . . easier to store but he’d be MAD jealous of your husband’s mid century furniture stash. I’m jealous myself!

    Oh I think I just turned chartreuse with envy. Online auction, please. That cart alone looks like a dolly headed toward Salvage One in West Town.

    I like that it is your husband’s storage unit and not “the family” storage unit!

    Does he want to have a sale? That I can come to? Mid century furniture is a personal weakness of mine.

    That’s the best stacking on a cart I’ve ever seen. Magazine worthy ;) Very artsy.

    Good luck on the move!

    Chris and I had quite a chuckle at that picture of D.
    We have quite a stash of revolving furniture in the unfinished part of our basement as well. My friends wonder why our coffee table is never the same.
    We look forward to pics of the new place and congrats on your girlie news. :)
