BORDER LINE

video

I know I don't shy away from the extreme or the eccentric, I never have. Thankfully now, I have an audience that shares my taste and whats better they pay for the pleasure. What you see in this video is a display case at the Pasadena Antique Center Annex. It is mine. Although I sell Mid Century Modern pieces and glamorous Hollywood Regency to the stores and all the other things in style, this you see before you is my passion. At least right now. The handmade, folksy, made by Americans, things invented in garages these type of things I'm drawn to, more than ever.

Whoa, fantastic, wigs and whisks -- now that's what I call eclectic!

Oooh — so much fun! The baby doll reminded me of my grandmother, who knit scalps for dolls who had lost all their hair. It felt good to have that memory flood back.

Kevin,

And we shall call this “Kevin’s Case Of Amazement’s”. The presentation of your assemblage has sort of a Vincent Price feel about it, a tinting of darkness yet quite comforting at the same time. I am sure it is the skull that has sparked that perception in myself, well and that wonderful bat also. I think the most appealing aspect is way you have created a large piece of assemblage art, the whole should be in a gallery as opposed to being in a antique center venue. – gary

Some of these things were weird to begin with, like the mounted bat or the memorial dome, while others time has made so, like the melted/disintegrated doll, or the dissociated hand.

By the way, what are the white things in that jar?

Thanks you guys, it's fun collecting this sort of thing and selling them at the same time.

Parnassus, the jar is full of ivory colored buttons. It's funny I have a thing for buttons as well as human hair doll wigs. I know, I am crazy border line.

So many unique things. I love the old egg beaters and spatulas. I would love to have the deflated doll as a Halloween prop. The kids in the neighborhood would be shaking in their boots. Really neat and fun post!
