Hailing from Oakland, CA, Modern Commissary is totally obsessed with all things wonderful. Be it vintage, handmade, or heirloom, the outpost’s self-proclaimed head hunter Justin Abee is a whiz at tracking down superb Mid-Century stuff. Decidedly more grandpa than grandma, his classic, stark finds span typewriters, toolboxes, crochet throws, Christmas bulbs, ornamental trays, and any other exceptionally made ware that provokes a nostalgic grin. So go ahead—make a tiny piece of history your own.
Clock by organ company Hammond. This vintage product is in fair “as-found” condition. Some unraveling to cloth cord with paint wear in spots. Functional, but needs to be turned occasionally.
