Here's one of my favorite things that I have been hauling around for probably ten years or so. It's a really cool cathedral radio. It looks great and could probably work with a little restoration, if you are into that sort of thing.
There's some minor damage to the wood, a little warping and a little splintering. Not noticeable from the front.It is 11 1/2" wide, 14" high and 8" deep.
This is one of those things that I thought would be worth more than it is. eBay auctions on the same model, but in crappy condition, bring in less than $50. Since this is in very good condition, I'm asking $75. If you live outside Chicago and want it shipped to you, you handle the costs of shipping and handling. Interested?

This limited edition poster is a lithograph that I bought at an art gallery in the Paris Casino in Las Vegas in the summer of 2001. It is an exact recreation of an original 1908 poster. I like the colors, I like magic, I like Houdini, I had made some extra money through commercial work, so, why not?
The poster is 27" x 41". With the frame, its 34" x 48". The frame is nothing special. Basic black plastic with acrylic glass. It's also a little warped in one corner. And it comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Re Society.
Being the savvy art buyer that I am, I picked this baby up for only $650. Seven years later, a search for it on-line puts its value at $325. Unframed.
I'm only asking $200. If you live outside Chicago and want it shipped to you, you handle the costs of shipping and handling. Interested? Shoot me an e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org
