I've been sort of "collecting" an item on ebay, called Computer House of Cards, by Ray and Charles Eames from the 1970's world fair for IBM. Anyway, it's a deck of cards with 2 slots on each side that you can playl with building structures etc..
I have purchased 2 before, and just last week my 3rd arrived in the mail. I paid less than $200 for the third one and it was in the best condition, hardly a scratch, fade, or even been used I'd bet. sweet deal.
It's funny the way certain things just grab your appreciation and you look for it to aquire. I mean dumb stuff like collecting things like that. Tally, over at You got a Gay, confessed to probably making a good interior decorator in another life: I thought I'd share about my gay Eames design and retro furntiure fascination. I actually also have 2 black Eames Eiffel tower chairs from ebay from a few years ago. ha.
I always buy a catalog from LA Modern's past auctions just to mull over and look at, of course I'd never be able to purchase any of it but the photographs sure are purty...
