That got us to remembering this 1950's green dinette that was featured in a local shop some years back. In reasonably good condition at the time although it did have some wear and tear issues--and it might have come home with a friend--except that the seller was looking for an obscene amount. The friend opted to go with a repro instead and even with shipping, saved over $400! The moral here is that you can achieve a retro look without paying overblown prices for the originals....the red dinette discussed over at Retro Renovation, however, was a real bargain at $800 given its minty goodness.
Remembering Ricky Nelson who

1973....In 1996, he was ranked #49 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Stars of
