Bazaar 69











...and 68. From an estate sale in Ct. Including some rare leg spreads by Guy Bourdin, a neat feature on Danish children's fashions, hippie stuff, space age stuff, Russian peasant stuff, that awesome clear hose, and a newborn Anderson Cooper is the bizarre of the Bazaars in an altogether ooky photograph by the late great Diane Arbus.

Brutalism & BMWs




Brutalist pegboard- notice how the lights can be moved to any hole.

Above, from Suzanne Slesin's 1987 book "Japanese Style", including Toyo Itoh's awesome ping pong courtyard, Tadao Ando's supercool partially bermed brutalism, and Kenji Hongo's vertical bunker with its 1978 BMW 530i parked in the rock garden garage.
Below: the cover of next month's Brutus Casa (from Japan). Related? Probably not, but those older BMWs do go nicely with giant slab architecture.

Aiuto!


1968 Alfa Romeo Ambulance, with matching machine gun-toting jeep and motorcyle, from the always awe-inspiring inventory of fantastico automobili at Fantasy Junction. If you like cars, this is the place for you (though if you're a millionaire it'd be even better); and for the design aficionado the photo documentation is intense, down to the last little switch, button, logotype, valve, toolbag, etc.... - you'll be there for hours.
Below, a beautiful Ferrari 250 GT from 1964, and the Hobbiton Dashboard of a 1966 Bizzarrani Strada.

Are you a Mod or a kitty?




Since garage sales in Maine have gone into hibernation for the winter, we're vicariously yard saling through my parents in Florida, who recently sent up this great Harry Gordon Poster Dress from 1968. 
25 cents, from a yard sale in Key Largo (below). I don't think it was ever even taken out of its packaging, but soon it will be framed and up on our wall!
