Re-Run — Or, “have you seen this one before?”

Repurposing, refabricating, refurbishing and … Re-Run.

This charming little vintage television did not want to be hidden away; it wanted to run out and tell its story again.

“I have NOT outlived my usefulness,” it huffed and puffed. “I can show you Mr. Rogers, Walter Cronkite and Captain Kangaroo and Mighty Mouse! The Twilight Zone, Sherry Lewis and Lambchop, Romper Room and Lawrence Welk! I Love Lucy! Andy and Opie and Aunt Bee. Fireball XL5. A black and white viewing of Wizard of Oz, which does NOT turn into color when the door opens on Dorothy’s house. Follow the gray-brick road, I say!”

Shake “Re-Run” and you will get a sparkle-fall of shimmering dusty static over the adolescent-awkward robot legs.  And on the base, an authentic vintage TV dial, dating back nearly 50 years. Watch any of 12 channels, kids, there’s always something interesting on.
