Hey, T.D.! Do you have a giant Mid-Century magnet attached attached to your butt so this stuff keeps gravitating to you? You never cease to amaze me. You just come up with great find after great find. What's your secret?

i wish. it takes a little work,like chasing down baddly discribed items in the paper,scrolling though endless postings of junk on 'craiges list',getting up at 5:00am to get a 'low' number for an estate sale that opens at 9:00am.,only to find that the things in the sale were not even close to being as discribed, or already pick through the night before by the liquidators dealer friends.
which garage sales to avoid from the street ,before you waste time walking all the way up the drive way to find nothing but a mini "KIDS are US" store.
but sometimes things do just fall in your lap , so there is a little balance in the universe.
it's the thrill of the hunt.

In addition to this amazingly fabulous Bettie Page poster...


I was "gifted" with these items as well...







This was all stuffed in a tote with some other magazines and junk! I found the Headhunter's Lounge and Jungle Room menu I posted on Tiki Finds mixed in this stuff.

I don't need any of this stuff, so if you see anything you like, PM me and maybe we can trade for something I that I like! (Except Bettie Page)!

To go along the same lines of that awesome Betty Page poster I found 3 amazing 1940s Adult Movie posters off Craigslist. Each one is about 4 foot high by 3 foot wide. Made of pressed cardboard they are in superb condition. On the backs there are labels which show what theater they originally belonged to.

Here is a bad camera pic of 2 of the posters.

They have great titles like "How To Get A Man" and "Sex Maniac". I need to upload a bigger pic and one close up but because they are so tall this was all I could get right now.

Oh and I also scored this sweet Arco lamp which is on the floor in front of the posters.

Found these 5 mold-o-rama Marineland of the Pacific wax machine figures/molds at an estate sale all thrown in a bag. Flipper's base is half eaten, the blue marlin has cracked finline and missing a nub of his sword, and the walrus has a qtip sized hole near his nose. The octopus and seahorse look good. All of the bases say Marineland.









Not the exact machine, but this is a simliar one that these came from at Marineland.

Tom, i love those wax animals. when i started going back to the local zoo regularly it brought back childhood memories of having those, so now i buy a new animal everytime i go. have thought about looking for vintage ones, but figured being wax they probably did not survive. Nice score

Thanks Ocea...You know its funny,because i still have my original wax figures from Marineland, the Zoo and Universal Studios. My original Marineland Octopus is pink vs the light blue one pictured. I still have a yellow giraffe from the zoo, and a teal colored Frankenstein bust from Universal. I seem to vaguely remember destroying at least one unknown by chewing on it. I actually talked to the guy who owns/operates the zoo machines this past summer, and they are to be replaced with newer machines/models anytime now. I think half of the fun was watching them being made, and smelling the mixture of plastic and wax! It is an unforgettable smell, and I actually don't mind it! :::Brain cell dead!:::
