this is a vintage hassock fan that i bought last year on a whim and I just want to share it because it's so cool. It blows air upwards 360 degrees around. why don't they make fans like this any more?? anyways, it's been a life saver during the past few days of working from home while it's been so hot.
back in the day, they also made some real cool "rocket" shaped ones like this:
these go for quite a bit though and are pretty tough to find. I learned all of this from the guy I bought mine from. He's a fan collector and he was selling a bunch of fans so he could buy the rocket ship one. I wonder if he's been able to get it yet.
