UNREAL - Surreal mix of strange, cool, eclectic and downright great items, tables, slabs of stone, a bathtub cut in a rough boulder etc.  We bought a thing for plants in the atrium and think we got a halfway reasonable deal on it,  it turns out the thing will not fit in the Bentley, S****  so having them ship it to Los Angeles this morning.

Dealt with Dave the owner, outstanding guy with a fine wit and a good taste.  

Lately it seems everybody and their brother is opening
American picker" stores, this one is a bit older and unlike the ones in Los Angeles, its got some real lovely stuff, lots of it, and prices you can actually imagine paying.

Highly recommended if you want something out of the ordinary for your place
