hi all...

today on this wonderful morning here in the midwest, my friend Peter and i were thrifting ,and were checking out a new store that just opened. So im walking through this store (filled with cheap gotty clothing, tacky funiture, and very sparse of anything good), about five minutes before leaving my friend, Peter was looking at a electronic item and i was walking through the furniture for the fourth time, and upon each time i kept meeting this gray ottoman looking box, i looked like a little toy box or something..i didnt really know what to think of it..but upon the fourth time around something told me to open the i did and the rest is to be said in pictures...P.S. it was half off to!

part 4

thats right..a original Eureka roto-matic afraid there was no machine in sight to accompany it...i even asked the very nice lady who worked there..but none the less its still in exceptional condition, and is not an easy item to find alone..

all my best

What great find!!!

I have one as well but it is fragile! I move it around empty or carry it if I have to move it. Now, to get a vacuum for yours.......

i like furniture too, and noticed that red chair to the right with the big wood sides, is it vintage, arts and crafts, modern ? very unusual design, very nice looking
