Awhile ago I was thinking about buying a vintage fan on E-bay.(Click here) I had almost given up the idea when as I'm walking to the subway close to 96th street I come across some sort of (illegal) street sale where a man was just selling a whole bunch of random items on the corner. One of these items was a vintage fan. Actually, it was one of the exact ones I'd been looking at on E-bay. I bought it for $5. It runs so well for such an old thing! Only downside is it's slightly dangerous, mostly because of my cat. It doesn't really have the guardrails that modern fans now have, which is also why its design is so much cooler. I'm going to repaint it.
