Two Mid Century Modern Sales, One Neighborhood
Both sales are in the Skokie-Evanston area just off Golf Road. Each runs on Friday and Saturday.
Sale A: 9511 Drake, Evanston. The cat who ate Danish Modern, with lots of lamps and housewares and teak style thrown in. This one goes from 9 am to 3 pm on Friday and Saturday, 10/9 and 10/10.
Sale B: 9700 Kedvale in Skokie. To control traffic at the opening of the sale at 9 am on Friday, there's a sign-up sheet posted on the front door of this location. No worries, this just means that if you want to be one of the first one in, you should put your name on the list ahead of time. I called the sale conductor, who said by 10:30, everyone should be able to go in without waiting.
In addition to the mid century styles at this sale, there are some first edition books signed by the author and for mad scientists, lots of old chemistry and text books. The estate sale at 9700 Kedvale runs Friday from 9 to 2 and Saturday from 9 to 3.

Rent the whole Mid Century Modern Hotel for New Years Eve
The Curtis Hotel, a boutique with a mid-century modern theme and 330 rooms, has started an auction to sell its services for the night of Dec. 31. The winning bidder gets use of all the rooms, as well as the hotel's grand ballroom, live music, champagne, caviar, dinner, breakfast (and, of course, all the staff) to pull off a once-in-a-lifetime party.
It's not unprecedented for a hotelier to rent out an entire property to a single client, but it's a sales tactic more common with smaller hotels. With such a large number of rooms – on a busy night for hotels – the price is likely to be steep; by the beginning of this week, there was already a bid for $50,000 (U.S.), which didn't hit the hotel's minimum price for the auction. But that means the door is still open, and the auction doesn't end until Sunday.

Las Vegas History and Mid Century Modern Architecture Events - October 3rd and 5th 2009
SATURDAY, October 3, 2009
VeryVintageVegas is pleased to be one of the sponsors of “Beyond the Mint: The Mid Century Modern Architecture of Walter Zick”. The location is the NEVADA STATE MUSEUM at Lorenzi Park on Washington, west of Rancho.
The bus tour of the Walter Zick buildings that still exist is sold out, and there’s a waiting list to take the place of any no shows.
Alan Hess is the featured panelist. There’s a reception at 11:30am and the panel discussion is at Noon. Again, to Classic Las Vegas for all the details.
Monday, October 5, 2009
Alan Hess, the pre-eminent architectural historian is lecturing on the Mid Century Modern legacy of Paul Willams , and the fascinating topic of “Googie”. This event is at 7 pm, is free to the public, and will be held at the Historic Fifth Street School.
Paul Williams designed the conch shell lobby of the La Concha hotel here in Las Vegas. It was saved from the wrecking ball, and will be the new visitors center at the Neon Museum. It’s as good of an example of Goggie as there is.

Eames Giant House Of Cards
The Eameses designed the House of Cards as a construction toy comprised of 20 large interlocking slotted cards. The images and patterns printed on them are of what Eameses called “good stuff “, chosen to celebrate “familiar and nostalgic objects from the animal, vegetable, and mineral kingdoms.”
The card sets come in 3 sizes, small, medium and large (giant), and at one time came in a number of alternate designs: Computer House of Cards (1970) and Newton House of Cards for the 1974 Nobel Laureates.
