Cosmetics

My wife subscribes to a website called Birchbox that carries beauty, grooming, and lifestyle products. She loves it. She usually waits on the curb for the mailman to deliver her package each month.

Philco Predicta Restoration

I saw a 1959 Philco Predicta Pedestal on eBay and thought it was the coolest thing ever. I had to have it. The only problem – it was selling for about $1500, and I didn’t really need it THAT badly. On the other hand, I figured if I could pick up a used or non-working… Read more »
