My mother loves to shop around in the housewares section at stores like Marshalls, HomeGoods, etc etc so it must be at one of those places that she picked up a tacky sailing-themed coat hanger/wall mountable coat rack.
It was made of shitty, conveniently distressed wood planks that were painted and scratched to give them a salty "weathered" look. The metal hooks are secured with old-timey looking rope. It was pretty bad. She gave it to me hoping I could spruce it up, but unfortunately, it turned into this:
The images are collected from a 1980s issue of National Lampoon Magazine. In case you are unfamiliar with the class-act that National Lampoon Magazine used to be, get an idea here: http://lampoon.rwinters.com/Lampoon1982.htm
I picked up a couple of old issues of NL Mag at a South Philly flea market down the street from my house:
The guy wanted 5 bucks for each one, which is kinda hefty in my opinion:
The banknotes and the yellow decorative paper are from my growing collection of Chinese joss paper from the local Asian supermarket:
Anyways, point is my mom didn't want the coat hanger back.
