Rowdy’s Dream Blog #291: The Haunted Apartment.
By Brutus De Cervantes [ Mon Apr 15 2013 3:22 PM ]
I live in a haunted apartment: furniture and propane tanks move toward me, menacingly. I pray fervently. I know am protected now and my fear is stilled. Later, I tell a black kid about the incident.

SOFA WEST tempts with eye candy
By Summer Olsson
Not only is it a squishy place to watch TV from, not to mention a place for your too-drunk friends to crash, it’s also a huge art and design festival in Santa Fe. The third annual SOFA (Sculpture Objects and Functional Art Fair) WEST runs Thursday through Sunday, Aug. 4 through 7. Exhibitors include galleries and artists from all over the states and as far away as Argentina. You can buy and/or ogle artwork, furniture, jewelry and even things that are fascinating but hard to identify.

Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: 80s Southwestern Furniture Explosion
By Laura Marrich [ Tue Jun 15 2010 5:44 PM ]
Designed by the owner in 1983, this armchair and matching loveseat are a SW symphony of right angles. “With great reluctance, I am selling as a set, a Memphis Milano style arm chair and sofa / loveseat,” says the seller/designer. “We are moving and these pieces won't fit into our new condo.”
The stacked shape recalls traditional thunderbird imagery, while faux granite plastic laminate over plywood brings these pieces into the 20th century healthplex waiting room.
“It's really hard for me to price these pieces as they are pretty much one-of-a kind, so if you are interested, make me a reasonable offer.”
“NOTE,” he adds, “I can take a credit car through PayPal.”

Camino del Pueblo and U.S. 550
By Devin O’Leary
Camino Real Antiques & Collectibles
Step through the door of this teeming antique shop and the squeak of the wood floors alone is enough to send you back in time. Wander the free-flowing aisles and you're guaranteed to trip over (maybe literally) some bygone goodies—most dating from the middle of the 20th century or so. You won't find a lot of Victorian clothing or Federalist furniture here, but there are plenty of pop cultural gems, from the big (a full-size Pepsi-Cola cooler) to the small (a tidy selection of classic 45 records). You can spend a little ($2 for rustic, decorative kitchen utensils) or a lot ($3,000 for an actual juke box). Alongside your standard Americana (old advertising signs, rusted license plates, collectable salt-and-pepper shakers) are some sharp Western items. Ornate, hand-tooled saddles will run you upwards of $400. Professional branding irons go for $145. Indian blankets range between $85 and $125.
