It's almost spring and the yard sales are slowly returning, Just in time for the end of winter. I found this witco or witco inspired fireplace tool set shaped like a horse. Also this cool wall sculpture of fish that looks like it came from and atomic house.

Picked up this like-new Craft Master paint by number kit yesterday. According to paintbynumberz.com it's c1960.



New Artist series 40 NA-442 "The Birches"



Comes with two 8" x 10" panels



and an 18" x 24" panel



All the paints, brushes and brush cleaning fluid are still sealed



and it came with an 8 page full-color catalogue and order form.



From the catalogue I scanned images of sets with tropical island themes:

You don't collect vacuum cleaners do you dogbytes? I have heard of such people. Far be it from me to poo-poo anyone's collecting proclivities but I think vacuum cleaners are a weird thing to collect (sorry if I'm offending the vintage vacuum community). Anyhow, we used to have that vacuum when I was growing up. I think it had a different brand name (which I can't remember but I'm pretty sure it had a really space-agey logo) but it was exactly the same style and the same shade of aquamarine that was the decorating rage of the early 60s (our livingroom walls were the same color). For sure we did not have the swanky padded box though.

Wow...this is a great thread...first time here. Most of the pictures links are broken prior to page 7, but after that it is pretty sweet. Love that vacuum cleaner. I'll be back with some of my goofy junk.

Haha, we have that vacuum, in silver! Actually, they're fantastic vacuums. Very easy to repair and the parts are all still available. My parents still use theirs, attachments and all.

Course now that we ripped up all the carpets it doesn't get used, but it is damn cool! I always liked having it follow me around the house like a little mouse.

A radio that looks like the one on Gilligan's Island that runs on 4 D batteries which I can probablly start up my car with.

Check out this cool swag globe lamp that I scored at the Alameda Antiques Fair this Sunday. It's huge!!! I guess the color on this would be tortoise? I was unsure as to whether I should post this here or in Tiki Finds, since I plan on stuffing a pufferfish lamp inside this globe lamp, but since it's not officially tiki-fied yet, I figured it should go in Beyond.

The lamp hardware for the globe lamp is missing, and I used that as a bargaining tool. I told the seller that I'd have to track down all of the hardware, and then spend my precious man hours in rewiring the lamp as well. Also, it was the end of the day, and the Antiques Fair was about to close. So he cut the price in more than half! The great thing is that I already have a small pufferfish lamp to squeeze into there, so I don't have to do much rewiring, other than running the lamp cord through the chain. I guess I'll have to cut off the plug end to do that, and then re-attach it when I'm done.

Once I've finished installing Mr. Puffer, then this puffer fish in a glass float effect should be a nice addition to the bar area I've been working on here at Casa de Mai Tai.

Mai Tai, that lamp should be a knockout. Please post a picture when it's done.

Still working on the lamp. Seems like I have a million tiny projects around here, all going on at once. Anyways, Nacho and I went out to lunch the other day, and then went thrifting at one of his favorite local spots. I found another really cool swag lamp!!!


This one has cool amber, blue and orange-red globes - it's a three swag with an extra smoked colored globe. Don't know if I'll be able to squeeze any small puffer fish into these though, because the globes and globe openings are considerably smaller. But I'd sure like to! Maybe I can find some teeny tiny puffers to stuff inside?

By the way, in the upper right corner of the photo is the cabinet and chassis for my first guitar amplifier project. I'm going to try to build tube based guitar amps.

OMG...I have a pair of lamps like that PTD...they are still packed in storage somewhere in my garage. I am so glad you posted that picture....it reminds me of some of the fun things I'll find when I continue to unpack from my move 2 years ago.

Mai Tai....I am loving that shoe next to the lamp too.

Having just discovered this thread, plans are afoot to completely inundate everyone with an ungodly amount of crap I have procured over the decades - much of it from a brief stint as sorter at a Salvation Army warehouse.
Prepare, for you have been warned!

Jus' gotta re-charge the camera battery here, and unpack a few boxes...
