Hello Victory on HBO's Mad Men!

I had quite a special surprise yesterday. I sold these window squeegees and soon realized I was to send them to Los Angeles to the set of HBO's hit series Mad Men! I have seen the show a few times (we got rid of our cable so we wouldn't become glued) and I just love it! The show takes place in the 1960s so the entire set is decked out mid-century style. I constantly swoon over their desk accessories and clothes. I had to e-mail the prop guy a few times since he wanted them to ship overnight and hopefully he'll be back for more! Its exciting to know that some of my items will be on TV! Keep your eye out for the red and green squeegees!!
ps. Not too long ago Mr. Lindello was like "who's going to buy old window washers?"
well husband, what do you think now? :)

  1. Awesome! We threatened our cable company that we were going to cut our service and they cut our rates in half! Plus free HBO for 1 year! So I'll have to watch for this even though I'm not a big tv watcher.

  2. That is way cool !

    You'll have to watch all all the episodes when they come out on DVD to see if you can spot your washers :)

  7. Nice! You're right - the set/costume/prop detail on the show sends me into an overload of vintage desire... the 1950's male species, and the treatment of minorities and women sends me running! I didn't finish netflix'ing the season- after just finishing the novel Revolutionary Road - I've had more than enough destructive, suburban ennui! I'll still take the clothes! :)

  9. Holy cow - this is so exciting! The Mad Men sets are just amazing. I was just commenting to The Boy the other day that I'd bet some of the stuff on set came from Etsy. I'm a huge Mad Men addict, so I will be on the lookout for the squeegees. Trust your instincts when buying stuff like this - you have the eye for the coolest stuff!
