Own A Piece of Mad Men History

Now that the mad boys and gals of Mad Men are situated into groovy new office digs, AMC pondered what to do with the old 60s style Sterling Cooper furniture. Good news for maddicts: it's being auctioned off on eBay! Always wanted to sit on the same piece of furniture as Roger Sterling or pour yourself into one of Joan Holloway's famously curvy frocks? Now's your chance. The auction benefits the cancer charity called City of Hope (10% goes toward the charity) and runs through August 22. 

Dozens of chairs, tables, sofas and even drapes are included in the auction. Surprisingly, very little is offered in each description - it's unclear to me if the furniture is really 60s vintage or was found new for the show. It's also disappointing that only three clothing items are up for grabs: dresses worn by Betty, Joan, and Bobbie Barrett. Clearly the best item up for auction is a walk-on role on the show during season five. You'll have to have a lot of moolah to win that one: the current bid is over $15,000. Good luck, my peeps!

I want Mad Men clothes! That's pretty clever of them (but what if they need to do flashbacks? Gasp!) How are you liking the new season so far?

That's so cool about the auction. Doubt I could afford any of it.

Thanks for your advice about the three column template. It's something I'm going to experiment with.

Take care.
