eBay Find: Vintage Polaroid
We have no idea who this woman is but, boy, is she having a ball. If you’re an avid collector of random things, here’s a vintage polaroid of a young lady that mysteriously ended up on eBay. In fact, eBay houses a world of orphan polaroids posted by people everyday. We suggest grabbing one and framing one for your home. It’s like inheriting a piece of someone’s history with positive juju in it.
Check eBay to scope out an array of more vintage polaroids.
Curator Corner: Pharrell Williams
One of the major finds this week on eBay was spotted by one of our curators, Pharrell Williams, who compiled a collection of things for his fantasy home. Behold an original Andy Warhol screenprint entitled Perfume Bottles (1982) available on eBay. Serious collectors only. For $90,000, you can take this piece of art history home.
If 90K is too steep a price, visit the rest of the Grammy winners suggestions at Finally Home. We promise, there’s much more affordable stuff in it.
Graphic We Love: Andy Warhol
Entitled Andy Warhol, Eggs (1982), we believe we found ourselves a new favorite image outside of his soup can genre. Luckily, eBay has a diverse sampling of Andy Warhol designed things to continue digging for the obscure.

Hanging with Cheryl Dunn: Part 2
In our continued series of entering creative homes, we revisit Cheryl Dunn and her second biggest collection besides records — Art!
"The art is a collection of 20 years I would say" says Cheryl. "I would try to buy a small piece from everyone of my friend’s shows. I was documenting a lot of graffiti in the 90’s and early 2000’s… [MORE] and hanging out in San Francisco, so I have some work that I treasure which I could never afford today".
If you are still on the market to buy a Barry McGee piece and a few artists of that street era, take a peek at eBay for a few floating collector gems. Consider a book by photographer Martha Cooper if you can’t afford the real prints, although we do occasionally spot a few on eBay if you hunt hard enough.
To get refreshed on classic New York street photography, take a look at Cheryl Dunn’s new documentary EveryBody Street, available now for download on Vimeo, or check everybodystreet.com for screenings near you.
