As a newlywed 15 years ago, I discovered decorating books and magazines. Well, I always knew they were out there, but now that I had my own home and was in search of my style, they applied to me and I became an addict. I quickly gravitated to a more “country” style and homes that displayed a lot of antiques. I noticed fans, scales and typewriters used as props in the homes that were featured and all three made it to my “list.” The list of things I would hunt for as I was out shopping. I bought my first antique fan, a black Emerson oscillating fan from eBay for $15. It’s in the photo shoot below…
A few years later, I found a rusty typewriter at an antique store for $5 and took it home. The typewriter I have now is a portable Corona I found at an estate sale for $10.
Now I pick up scales, typewriters and fans any time I find them at a good price to use in my home and photo shoots and to sell in my retail spaces.
