Monumental Ink Stamp Carousel - $685
Primitive Dutch Table Top Work Station - $1155

I recently found out about Factory20, which is an online warehouse full of the most fantastic antique industrial stuff. The website gives me all of the best feelings of a. being in a dusty campus museum filled with historical artifacts b. flipping through a huge coffee table photography and c. going antiquing. The names of the items alone are enough to make my hands shake with excitement.

I started looking and realized that what I was basically doing was furniture shopping for my imaginary real-life antique jewelry shop. Here are the things I picked out. Now I just need $40,000

Lovely choices! I'm especially drawn to the lamp which would look stunning in my redone master bathroom. Hmm.
