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.



  1. That rocker on the top, near D? I WANTS IT.

  2. Haha. At least he has good taste!
    .-= Kali´s last blog ..Resolution check-up. =-.

  3. Ooo, if looks could kill, I’d be dead over twice by now.

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

  5. 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.

  6. I have four dollars! Let’s make a deal.

  7. 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.

  8. I’ve seen that look before. It’s the “dammit my wife’s gonna blog this” look! My husband gives me that look all the time!
    .-= Manda´s last blog ..Pee pee in the pah-taay!! =-.

  9. 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!

  10. well… if i lived in your neighborhood, i would gladly take some of that ‘garbage’ off your hands.

  11. 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.

  12. Hahahaha! The expression on his face is so funny…

    He’s all “Don’t judge me, you don’t me”

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

  14. oh, but it’s so so pretty!
    .-= mommymae´s last blog ..a happy birthday to my other sister =-.

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

  17. At least it’s stuff worth hoarding. My husband? I find collections of car magazines and empty detergent bottles…it makes me nuts!

  21. 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. :)
