Private Stash: Arvin Space Heater

Let’s get a few business-related things out of the way. Today will be our last post until after the holidays. We will be shopping for more vintage goodies and coming up with creative posts to start the New Year. We’re working on a post about negotiating prices, and if you have anything you’d like us to post about give us a shout.

In other news, it’s getting down right cold here. My husband is working from home in the basement and our windows are quite drafty. He had been talking about a space heater and I brought in one of my vintage finds.

Vintage Space Heater

This Arvin space heater is so darn cute. It works perfectly. Except it smells pretty funny and the cord might get pretty hot while it’s in use. It might have singed my cat’s whiskers.

Sadly, my husband is a tad bit nervous using this little guy. So instead our office now has one of these sitting next to his desk.

New Space Heater

Yuck. But I don’t really want our house to burn down. Austin’s post yesterday had me thinking about all the little details of vintage things, and here is a prime example.

Hope you all have a good couple of weeks and we will be back in the New Year refreshed and excited to share our finds with you.

    What a neat little heater. Hope your still going to display it somewhere. I too am a little worried sometimes about my electrical vintage things. I use my lamps daily, but I look at those old dingy cream cords and rusty prongs and I wonder if this could eventually be a safety issue, even though they work like a charm now.
    Can’t wait for your price negotiation post! I always feel so awkward negotiating, especially when I get the dirty look.

    I hope you and the rest of snag team have a great holiday, can’t wait to see your goodies!
