I found a 4 of these type of storage units gathering dust in a downtown garage, they were so covered with dirt that the yellow looked muted at first and it took 6 rags to get them shiny.

Found this great cigarette dispenser at a yardsale (5$) and got this fantastic scorpion mask, (central american, I think) down in Bisbee. It is something you either love or hate and we love it. It's about 4' X 2.5'.

I gotta say, as a militant non-smoker, that dispenser is way kool! I dig the scorpion too!

Went to an estate sale, and found a cocktail shaker, but no information on how old it is? I've already tried researching the net, and haven't come up with anything like the one pictured..





I bought that, and a couple of vintage(?) Trader Vic's coconut mugs...I think they are vintage, because they do not say the since 1923 date....Only "Aloha" and on the back "Trader Vics"...$5 for the 3 items...

I have never heard of a "clairidge".
I wonder if it was named after the Clairidge Hotel or bar. (?)

Ingredients to use:
1.0 oz Apricot Brandy
1.0 oz Cointreau
2.0 oz Gin
2.0 oz Vermouth

By the way, there are different measurements for this drink on the web.
First one I found.

There is also another drink recipe labeled on the frosted glass shaker, calling for Absinthe as an ingredient...Absinthe aka "green fairy" has been banned here in the States since 1915, up until a couple years ago, when they repealed the ban in most states(NY being the first to sell, followed by CA). That was what peaked my interest, to begin with. Thank you for the info on the Claridge, Unga! ...My digging for information continues...

I've probably owned about 400 cocktail shakers in my lifetime, and I have never come across that one. It's amazing how many have been produced thru the years.

Got these for free from a neighbor who didn't want them. He said his Dad gave them to him 20 yrs ago. They are pretty heavy and well made.

Found an early Earl Moran (pinup artist) 1940 calendar with all the months intact. I thought it might have been a repro, but the paper seems old and fragile. I'm still not sure, but if it is a repro, all the months are done authentically, and the dates fall on the correct days of the week. For $3.00 in the frame, I couldn't leave it behind...


Then I found this 70's/80s halloween lawn decoration...Its Frankenstein,who stands just under 3 feet tall....$5.00 later, he's in my room awaiting a new paint job...(Seems this guy seen quite a few halloweens, and his paint has faded).

I think I'm going to give him a Kustom touch, using candy paints, and maybe a dash of metalflake! I'll have to test the plastic, first!

**And regarding the Cocktail Shaker I posted recently about, I received a response from the cocktailshakers.com webmaster, Mark Bigler. I think he is also behind The Museum of the American Cocktail(MOTAC)in New Orleans, and here is what he had to say:

"The shaker is more than likely ca 1930's 1940's. There were many companies who all bought glass blanks from a few glass manufacturer's and decorated them differently. Same goes for the lids, many different entities involved and very few can be ascertained with glass that has no markings because they were likely from some of the same glass companies and then customized. Sorry I can't be of better help. There is an excellent book out there. Vintage Cocktail Shakers and Barware by Stephen Visakay."

Both websites are great, and are recommended if you are into Cocktail/Martini Shakers.

I'm pretty happy with this find from the local thrift. $7.95 each . . .

They had a plastic laminate someone had glued to the top with rubber cement (thankfully) so it pealed off. The one in the back is after cleaning. The residue comes off with Goo Gone and some elbow grease. You can see a seam separation on the back one. I'll probably end up refinishing the tops since they are in somewhat rough shape

What impressed me (besides being modern style) is that these are built like tanks. Surprisingly heavy (all solid birch) and not wobbly at all.

They're Conant/Ball "American Modern (Modern Mates) series. (c.1949 I think.)
