I rang Peter, he answered, and told him I was working on a book about decorating with vintage and thrift and asked if I could come to see it. "When?" he asked. "Tomorrow morning?" I queried. "And one more thing," I added. "I have a photographer with me in case we want to shoot it. Is that OK?"
He agreed, and we showed up at his door the following day at 9 a.m.. He led us through his home filled with midcentury treasures and pieces of modern art and then down to what he called the rumpus room, and there it was: the tiki bar we had heard so much about.
It only took us seconds before we decided to photograph our discovery, and in fewer than 24 hours had added yet another magical location to the pages of The Find.
