The Hunt Continues: Collecting is the Best Medicine!

Welcome to a good old fashioned estate sale – a cure all for the mind, body and soul.
For the Mind:
What lies between the ears resides thoughts, dreams and visions: Brain Waves, gouache on paper from Heidi Whitman.
What’s unconscious, and unfettered by the outside world, is the last frontier . Africa still hosts pockets of ancient cultures, the founding of the Mali Empire dates to the 1200’s: Tribal Dance Mask, with long horns and moon and star motif.
What evokes nostalgia can offer a clarity: vintage Vick’s Inhaler retail display in the classic “Vick’s Blue.”
For the Body:
Just what the Dr ordered: 19th and 20th century apothecary, pharma bottles, boxes and tins with bold graphic advertising designs. Think medicated cigarettes for asthma and alcohol based teething syrup for children.
Including some really stellar local relics.
Medical Quackery: The Roche Electric Hygienic Machine , patented in 1915, had the consumer stand barefoot on a pair of eleven-inch metal conductor foot plates build into the fold-out top of the box. The machine was turned on and a moistened sponge was then rubbed over those parts of the body needing treatment.
Exercise your body while exploring the beauty of nature: offering a complete travel package with this Hurricane Kayak, Santee 135.
Take your body to new places that you never knew existed with the support of high performance outdoor gear, from sacks to outerwear and boots featuring brands you love: Arc’teryx, Black Diamond, Marmot, and more.
For the Soul:
Feast on a philosophy of supporting local artists, nostalgia and a touch of humor.
In Charles Webb’s soul he was an artist. Listen to your inner voice go “ahhh” when you sit on a hand crafted furniture in iconic styles, that was made locally, that will last a lifetime: Charles Webb for your living room and dining room.
Additional pieces include:
One of the world’s most popular chairs. Le Corbusier for Cassina LC4 Chaise Lounge in black leather.
Scottland’s Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles Rennie Macintoch: Hill House Chair Ladderback chair.
The glass of artisans Kurt and Linda Carlson:
The art boxes of Po Shun Leong:
Knock the dust off your collecting cobwebs, whether you’re into spiders, Nathan Macomber, or the surfing the web, iMac 18 3: we welcome you to Collecting is the Best Medicine, a celebration of passions and playfulness.
