Saw these beauties on Craigslist and bolted out the door. I didn't save my work or nothin'. I just ran for my life! lol. I purchased all three chairs. Marked as BO-EX on the bottom and after doing a bit of research it appears these were designed by renowned Danish architect Finn Juhl. BO-EX it turns out is the export division for Bovirke. The chairs are in immaculate condition. I also purchased a fantastic 1970s multicolored filing cabinet and a Herman Miller desk designed by George Nelson.

    Very cool. I never move so fast as when I am going for the score!

    Thanks vetraio50.
    I know what you mean AmberRose. Sometimes I've got to be really careful not to knock down the elderly crowds at the estate sales. Lol.

    the color is impeccable. WANT :)
  6. sodapoprocker sodapoprocker, 5 years ago
    Yes the color is fantastic. Looks wonderful in my house. I have three and I probably don't need that many Hunter, so keep an eye out for them at

    haha, nice - Cheers to a fellow Texan getting your business off the ground! My grandparents live in San Angelo, so next time I'm around we'll drop by :)

    Sounds great! What a small world. We should be up and running by March. If you see me there be sure and introduce yourself! :)
  9. Hunter Hunter, 5 years ago
    Haven't been to visit in a couple years, but definitely will if I'm in town!
  10. sodapoprocker sodapoprocker, 5 years ago
    Well it definitely time I say hi to your grandparents! After Marh of course. Lol

    I see you collect vintage menswear. I don't see too much of that around. Stinks because I would love to wear vintage clothes to the shop.
  12. sodapoprocker sodapoprocker, 5 years ago
    You* not I on that previous comment. Lol
  13. Hunter Hunter, 5 years ago
    yeah, for the vintage clothes, you'll have to do some thrifting in el paso or odessa/midland (or Austin for that matter)...I need to post some more, thanks for the reminder :)
  14. sodapoprocker sodapoprocker, 5 years ago
    You really think Midland/Odessa has that stuff? That's where I grew up. I passed up a couple fedoras at an estate sale this morning. They were just a bit too right on my head. :/
  15. Hunter Hunter, 5 years ago
    ha, I don't know - I lived in Marfa briefly and some thrifting friends had secret spots they'd go to in Midland. I prefer El Paso - there's three or four gigantic thrift stores, like Savers, that always have great stuff.
  16. Hunter Hunter, 5 years ago
    yeah, estate sales are probably the best way to go, especially if you don't want competition from other young people!
  17. sodapoprocker sodapoprocker, 5 years ago
    Haha right... I saw a girl just a bit older than me at one this morning and was like.. "What do you think you're doing?" Lol
  18. Hunter Hunter, 5 years ago
    exactly :)

    sodapop, can you contact me at i have a question about the chairs.
  20. lovethatvintage lovethatvintage, 3 years ago
    Hi TM - I did good didn't I? I just guessed that the chairs were Juhl Finn & you proved it. Good going. In case you don't know who lovethatvintage is, you bought the chairs from me! Hope things are still going well for you.

    I just checked in Collectors Weekly to find out info on John Widdicomb furniture. I just discovered that a small writing desk from my Mothers home is a John Widdicomb!
    The Finn Juhl chair to far left shows a small bit of a desk credenza - just like my office suite. I had always suspected that it was also Finn Juhl as it was part of the same group of furniture that the Finn Juhl chairs came from.

    Good luck in your new store.
