Found at a local thrift. Very dirty and missing the numerals. Easy fix-gonna leave the rest of the brass as is (cept for the clean up).

Lucite spaghetti lamp shade, found at a nearby antique mall. Looks killer with a red bulb inside. Smells slightly of stale cigarettes.

From a local resale, I thought at first that it was a Treasure Craft piece. Itís marked Cal Orig. and twice as heavy as similar sized T C pieces.
About 12Ē long.

I have had this Tommy Bahama carrier for many years. I broke one of the bottles about 8 years ago.I kept the cap but did not use the carrier much-kinda useless with just one bottle. Much to my surprise I found two replacement bottles at a local thrift.

Local "antique" store:

Neat wine rack




Puzzle Party Pak




Don't know what it is, but after reading some of Skip's tutorials I could only think "This is going to make a heck of a Tiki Light"

Chris, depending on the height that might be the base for a glass topped table .

Several years ago I found this street sign at an accident site just blocks from my home . The top of the sign has a smaller sign with the city name ďLa MiradaĒ. I hung the sign in my home bar cuz I am very proud of my city.




We recently found another Street sign in a resale shop[ from my wifeís hometown of Pico-Rverva, California. You know this one is gonna get hung in our bar too. Btw, Whittier Blvd was the place to polish your car and cruise the blvd and see and be seen on weekend nights during the 60ís and early 70ís. Since been outlawed by the local Sheriff.



Cheers

nui 'umi 'umi - It's too small and flimsy for a table base, about 12" tall. Mrs. Monkey thinks it's supposed to be some sort of a head rest/pillow thingy. I'm thinking that it would make a good core for a light, with perhaps some tapa or paper around the inside and some rattan or split bamboo around it. Still working on the idea, using it for inspiration.

I'm loving your street signs. As a kid I lived in Downey (1962 - 68), then moved south to Capistrano until 82. Those signs brought me back.

Today's thrift store bargains - three small glasses and six mugs. Glasses are a little hazy, but the mugs look almost new.

SpaceMonkey, Iíve had success getting rid of the haze on the inside of glassware by filling em with a 50-50 m,ix of white vinegar and waterI Let them sit for 3-4 days and most times they look much better. I donít mess with the outside cuz Iím afraid I might damage the graphics.
Good luck
Btw, good looking glassware and your plans for the lamp sounds like a winner.

nui 'umi 'umi - Thanks! I appreciate the tip about the vinegar, especially from someone who's made it work. They're soaking now.

That makes sense. The haze is often scale left by hard water (lime, calcium, etc.). Bleach does nothing for that, but a mild acid should dissolve it. Good as new!
