vintage table

Daily Memorandum, “an intellectual’s Americana”, is an Etsy store out of Philadelphia after When You Awake’s own vintage heart. They offer a wide selection of antique furnishings (dressers, tables, chairs), accessories (old radios, shaving kits) and more.  Here are three of our favorite pieces that are currently up for grabs. First up, we have this Industrial Draftsman Workbench Table for $650. It is a handmade shop table, complete with hooks, hangers,  shelves and finished with black trim.

Vintage Wool RugNext up, we have this Wool Indian Trade Blanket, circa late 1940s-1950s, for $45.

P & R Railroad Hardware Medicine Cabinet

Lastly, we have this P & R Railroad Hardware Medicine Cabinet for $275. It’s an early 20th century primitive handmade cabinet with three levels inside, hinged door, and hand painted inscription “Ea.M. Miller & Sons, Lebanon PA, P+R” on front. The P+R is most likely referring to the P & R or Philadelphia and Reading Railroad station in Lebanon, PA. (Thanks to Teenangster for the head’s up on the Daily Memorandum).

Kitty Wells lip syncing to “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” on ABC’s Nashville Spectacular, a show hosted by Jimmy Dean at the home of the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium, on January 14, 1965. This was Wells’ “answer song” to the Hank Thompson hit “The Wild Side of Life.” It was written by J. D. “Jay” Miller, and originally recorded by Wells back in 1952. It was the first song to hit #1 on Billboard’s country charts for a solo female country artist.
