Hey! I have that same set, except I only have 7 and I always wondered what the 8th was. Now I know - Bombay. Thanks.

I have a few pieces of California Aztec, but given a good-sized budget, I would choose to collect the Metlox "Tropicana" line myself, decorated with pineapples and fish. I think this pattern would look especially good in your home, Bongofury, what with your Witco and Tiki and Modernist decor. Unfortunately, it is as expensive as your more uncommon and rare tiki mugs. img]

Sabu, if you ever want to rid yourself of those lesser Aztec pieces, I'll help you dispose of them. They were our everday mom-doesn't-care-if-we-break-them dishes when I was a kid. I thought they were awful until somewhere in my 20's when suddenly all things retro-modern began to creep into my style. They are again my everyday dishes but I try not to break them. Great info on the Metlox factory, too bad it's no longer there.

Take a look at this beautiful 1950s "Aquabat" that Doctor Z and I stumbled upon at a garage sale this weekend:







I passed on it, but with great longing. No room in my tiki bar right now to hang this on the wall or from the cieling. Starting price was $100, but they probably would have bargained. What a gorgeous relic of the Fifties.

This is my one of my favorite recent thrift store finds:
A TV S&P shaker




WOW!
Just researching old threads and saw this - I bought one a these 8 years ago for 25 cents, minus the S&P shakers (and a leg) and wondered since then what the exact hell it was used for! That's too damn cool.
I put a photo-slide and an LED light inside of mine. Now I gotta keep an eye out for those shakers....

Couldn't afford it, but can't live without it. These are perfect. Not a crack or tear anywhere. Check out the built-in ashtrays! $250

Man that sofa and chair set are SWAG!

My wife's Grandfather passed away last year (Grandmother 2 years earlier), and while going through their house cataloging items to remove (jewelry, guns, hidden money, etc.), my father in law told us that when we are ready (and the family is ready) we could have what antique furniture and items in the house. Well her family owns a ranch and all of her grandparent's decor is country or cowboy, but much of it is from the 50's. When we get the room cleared out in our house we will be aquiring a full set of wagon wheel furniture with original vinyl covering, her grandparent's covered everything to protect the fabrics. the set includes a fold out sofa-bed, 2 chairs, end tables, and hanging lamps. Perfect for that 1950's cowboy look I wanted in my den. There are also a non-cowboy lamps, including this one I snapped a pic of. Like I said, it's still in the house untill the family is ready to start parting with it.



I didn't pick it up to get a makers mark, but I recall seeing an article in a magazine about the maker of these lamps. I heard they go for big bucks on eBay (atleast at the time of the article).

Hey Unkle John, be careful with vinyl covered furniture. My experience has been that when you take the vinyl off and start using the furniture, the fabric has a way of deteriorating very quickly.

I walk the beach every morning with my dog and find all kinds of great re-usable stuff washed up with the tide. The picture below shows an example of some of the items I've found in the last couple of weeks:



I get lots of Lobster trap marker floats and other floats associated with the lobster fishery (during lobster season), that's a life ring on the left with a bit of netting that was encrusted with mussels. The bamboo in front is not the tons of river reed that washes down our rivers in the winter months, but is a bamboo gaff from a fishing boat that fell overboard, a bumper on the far right....and what's that in the back you ask?




Why that's an 8'+ long board!!! I was shocked to come accross this one at the hightide mark early in the morning. So shocked, in fact, that I left it there thinking someone MUST have left it there and would be back for it before I returned. 30 minutes later, it was still there. I was perplexed. Even the cheapest longboards arn't that cheap to just drop and run. My next thought was that maybe the person was still int he water. The sun was just starting to come up, absolutly NO waves (like glass that morning and the day before), so surfing was out of the question and it was light enough to see if anything was floating or paddling in the water. Nothing. I checked the board for teeth marks, but there are none, though the board is a little beat up (looks good, but probably not surfable). So...I picked it up and brought it home. now it lives in my backyard.

I was at the beach one day with my "City Slicker" friends one day and as i was exploring a rock pool i heard there cries of disgust. I went over to see what they had found as they were shouting "come and see what some dirty perverts left on the beach! They've left their BUTTPLUG the filthy bastards".
Yes indeed when i reached the BUTTPLUG it was infact one of those torpedo shaped fishing floats.
