I was pleased to see a closet full of barbershop quartet outfits—rainbow sportcoats and pork pie hats, wowsie—because who isn't pleased by the thought of a barbershop quartet? Needless to say, I didn't buy them.
I didn't buy this Breuer chair because the estate sale folks knew what they had (eight Breuer chairs in excellent condition) and priced accordingly. Besides, eight more chairs and my house will really start looking like an auditorium, or at least a random-vintage-chair showroom.
I don't know why I didn't buy this little Calvin Klein scarf. That typeface! Oh well.
