Vintage TV Shows, Part 3 Sanford and Son

Lamont and Fred (image
One of my local television networks recently started broadcasting reruns of the television show Sanford and Son.  In case you have never seen the show, it is about an old man and his son, Fred and Lamont Sanford, and their vintage/ junk selling business.  The main stage set, the living room, is loaded with vintage goodies of all eras, and the subject matter really hits home with me.

I sell vintage, and I see the charm of it.  Like the show illustrates, even vintage selling is hard work, but old things have beauty and value.  That seems to be reflected in the relationship of father and son in the show.  Besides that, I think it's hilarious!

I am addicted to watching Sanford and Son now.  From the "name that vintage prop" game that I tend to play when watching the show (for instance, recognizing LuRay dishes in one scene or California pottery in another), to the extreme situations the characters find themselves in, I am soaking this up.

In honor of the show, I finally put together a collection on Artfire of things that reminded me of the television series.  If you are a fan of the show, or just like vintage selling, laugh with me!
