Tom Millea platinum print from seller russlevin, whose sales I keep an eye on. I appreciate his 7-day return policy, as well as his willingness to buy photos back if their owners later tire of them. He's confident that this photo will appreciate in value, and I think he's right.

Crystal globe lamp from Williams Sonoma Home. While I prefer Thomas O'Brien's crystal lamps (available at Marshall Fields), this one is pretty and versatile. While not quite the "deal of the century" that the sellers claim, the starting price is $5, and there's no reserve.

Neoclassical cocktail table.This is everything you want in a cocktail table: graceful proportions, visual airiness, and a touch of glamour.

Reproduction chest. Seller Brighton Furniture Company quite deftly copies Barbara Barry's collection for Baker Furniture. I'm skeptical, but their feedback is great, and these seem to be good-quality knockoffs at very reasonable prices. Jump on their auctions before Baker sends them a "cease-and-desist" letter.
