My new thrifty $5 find is this Vintage Dominion Turquoise Fan.
I have seen this same fan on Etsy for $85 so I feel like I got quite a bargain.
It works perfectly, and has all the quirks of a retro item.
I am currently using it in my office since it is still in the 90’s here.
It has the old plug that you are afraid to use thinking it may start a fire, and it has those dangerous blades that can cut your fingers off when turning, it makes a racket when it oscillates, and it’s all part of its charm.
I love my new old fan.
