"Everything in here tells a story," says Larry Vodak, Scout's owner, "and that's what makes good, distinctive design." Scout reflects Vodak's excellent taste, featuring urban antiquities, such as a ruby red 1940s drink set, an antique mail slot unit or porcelain collectibles, as well as newer items that embrace a vintage style.
Larry's penchant for combining the old and new, evidenced by his leaf-etched aluminum trays (a perfect match for those vintage aluminum bar glasses) and steel chairs covered with a simple blue fabric found in 1920s Pullman car trains, means there's something here for everyone. Each item has a history and a story, which Vodak is happy to share: you'll find prints from old anatomy textbooks, non-traditional art incorporating 1950s grammar school designs, glassware collectibles, a large steel caterer's table, antique school chairs and more. Prices range from $20 to $250 and up.
