    Lakewood Deskfans...

    Back in the 80's these were sooooo elegant in my opinion... My dad use to make me sit with him at the fleamarket after school sometimes and this other seller (a big sexy hot woman-- pun intended apparently) would come in with her fan very similar to the blue one I am referring...
