No more playing around (answers in comment section)

After this post, I'll stop giving you hints about the store and let you actually see the interior, as well as many of the pieces we'll have for sale. Today we plan to finish some construction and painting. Then we'll be ready to start setting the floor and taking photos.

In the meantime, we have a contest to finish. I'm looking forward to finding out who comes up with all 10 correct answers first and takes home the title of the All Seeing, All Knowing Eye of 2011. In case you're coming in at the very end of the contest, I'll bring you up to speed. I've been showing close-ups of several items we're going to have for sale in our store. The object is to identify the designer or the manufacturer of each item. I posted the first three on Thursday and three more on Saturday. Today I'll show you the final four images.

And don't get too excited about winning a prize if you get all the answers, because this isn't a real contest, and there aren't any real prizes. All you get are bragging rights (and an imaginary hat, but that's another story altogether and it hasn't been much of an incentive so far, for some reason).

Without further ado, here are the last four pictures:



As soon as you think you know all 10 answers, put them in the comments section of this post. Let's see who  comes up with all 10 first!

  1. Not a single bold soul was willing to guess all 10? I'm surprised! I would have been all over a silly contest like this...but I guess that's just me. :)
