Masters Of The Universe

Who remembers Masters of the Universe? Or more specifically those awesome action figures/toys from the 1980’s? I certainly do! They provided me with hours of entertainment when I was younger.

Unfortunately as time goes on you tend to lose track of all your old toys. They get busted up and end up in the bin, or donated to a local charity once you have ‘grown up’. I’m not 100% sure what happened to my old MOTU toys & figurines, however I can say that when I had the opportunity to buy Castle Grayskull along with a few other bits and pieces a week or so ago I jumped at it!

Looks like I may of just started a new collection!

eBay Listings 22/8/12

Tonight on eBay we kicked off 2 listings.

The first listing is for a pair of Tessa T8 lounge/armchairs with the awesome low slung iconic design.

The second listing is for a vintage/shabby chic display unit/bookcase I upcycled from a 1940/50’s kitchen cabinet. I really like this piece. With its versatility it would be an excellent addition to any vintage/industrial/retro inspired space (think office, lounge room, bedroom, kitchen, laundry, etc!)

Where can you find these great items you may ask? Right here! 

Meadmore Style Outdoor Garden Chairs

I spotted these Meadmore style outdoor garden chairs just around the corner from our home a few weeks ago. I was surprised that I had never noticed them before, especially considering how many times I’ve walked by with the dog.

Vintage outdoor garden chairs

After a few failed attempts in making contact with the owner, I was finally able to purchase these awesome designed chairs.

After sitting outside for the last 20-30 years they are a little worse for wear, however structually they are in great condition. The frames of the chairs are manufactured from 1/2 inch steel rod which had been plastic wrapped for protection. They do possess an interesting feature being the arm rests/supports that wrap around the back of the chair. The seat & back support are also manufactured from steel rod/wire (being a thinner gauge).

I’m really looking forward to stripping these back, and then hitting them with a really bright colour. Possibly a Chrome Yellow, or a Burnt Orange! They definitely have the potential to be the centre piece in any vintage/industrial/retro inspired space!
