Black Friday Sale

By Bradley Lincoln

O-M-Gee!

I ran into the bubbly Lynne McDaniel at the Chairs for Charity event a couple of weeks ago, and she gave me a heads-up about the Black Friday sale she’s having at her Chicago Lawn vintage furniture store,
An Orange Moon.
(Next week Domestica will be coming to you on the day after Thanksgiving, so I thought you’d appreciate the advance notice.)
Lynne is discounting every-dang-thing in the store by 25 percent, through Sunday, November 28 and, as she’s known to do, serving complimentary featured beverages (Hennessey VSOP Cognac and Coronas this go-around) and playing themed music (hip-hop Christmas, natch).
The mid-century-centric shop is located at 2436 West 59th Street, and the sale is daily from 11–5.

*Singing and dancing permitted!!

Sam Ella Williams.

Her initials spell SEW!
This was truly an "old school" Christmas party.
Look at those hair-do's! Can you spot the lift operator?
Very Mad Men!!




Seek and Go Hyde


Lynne McDaniel, the ebullient owner of the Chicago Lawn antique furniture and vintage art store An Orange Moon (we told you all about it in the July/August issue, remember?), has an ambitious side biz running estate sales, and she told me about a whopper coming up this weekend in a Hyde Park Art Deco condo at 5000 S. Cornell Street. The consignee is a world-traveling 80-year-old widow with a penchant for mid-century-modern furniture, eclectic artwork, jewelry, rugs, French china, and mod clothing and furs, and it will all be offered for sale on-site this Friday thru Sunday, from 8 a.nm.-4 p.m. each day (cash only). “She also had a thing for the Chicago Bulls,” says Lynne. “I found autographed balls, tickets, and even Chicago Bulls handkerchiefs.” To make her tag sales social, Lynne likes to have jazz music playing and free drinks flowing, and as the sale progresses, prices drop. Everything is reduced 50 percent on Saturday and 75 percent on Sunday. If you can’t join the party, check out her shop, which she describes as “Erykah Badu meets South Beach meets Martha’s Vineyard!”

Sears & Roebuck 1968 High Fidelity Stereo


This is a Sears & Roebuck 1968 Hi-Fi! The style is called the "Contemporary" and all the paperwork is included. Look at the price! The original owner was an employee at Sears & received a discount. Look at the taxes back then. Everything appears to be so "old fashioned" except for this BABY!! Truly another Chicago legend ahead of its time. 


Sold 11/14/10

Flashback...
When my husband brought this into the store, I felt a slight catch in my throat. We had the same one when I was little. It was in the living room on the right side of the fireplace.
My Mom & Dad entertained every Friday night. Sometimes big cocktail parties with hats, gloves, & cigarette holders. Sometimes just a kooky gathering of friends singing, dancing and pigging out.
 There was Mr. Moore, one of my fathers business partners. We called him Candy Man behind his back. He always had several boxes of Lemonheads or Red Hots for us kids, which we greedily accepted! Then there was Uncle Clifton. He spoke with a perfect Cockney accent even though he was born and raised in Chicago.
But most of all I remember my Mom and Dad dancing by the Hi-Fi in front of the fireplace to old Dinah Washington, Frank Sinatra, Nate King Cole & Sarah Vaughn records. After the party was over, and the last guest either stumbled out or passed out, I'd catch a sleepy glimpse of them from the top of the staircase, as they danced to
"September in the Rain."
