I'm pretty sure that honey blonde colored cabinet is fairly hard to come by in TV finds...I've looked at many of sets/consoles and never saw one in that color...Really clean score for $20...Let me know how that converter plays out for you!

I've poked around a little bit on the web,(when I can pull myself away from TC!), & it does appear to be harder to find than say, the mahogany version. It really is in nice shape & you shoulda seen the years of tar & nicotine I cleaned off of it! I'll be sure to report back on the converter box.

In the past 5 years I think I have bought maybe 3 things off Ebay. These were one of them.

Pair of mirrored display boxes from the 50s. Including shipping the total price was less than $60. I plan on using them to display my Coco Joes and Hula girls. Holla!

Picked up a few things today.

A cool sailfish carving



Some carvings by S. Haas...according to the shop proprietor an eastern european carver who came to America in the 40's and then went to the pacific and south America in the 50's and 60's and did lots of carvings. Could not find anything online yet about him but S. Haas and S.H. are on the carvings.









$3.00 worth of repair materials.



And a cool little rattan shelf.



A good day.

Liz, those are killer! Here's one I picked up for $3.00 last year at a trailer park yardsale. I was thinkin' of filling it with hula girls, but I also inherited my mom's S&P collection, so maybe I'll do that on the non-tiki side. I got all mom's stuff from the 50's. My sister doesn't get "the whole vintage thing". She says "it's just old stuff" & she'd rather have new. She doesn't get the greasy hair & the sideburns either, but I think she could grow them if she wanted to.

Thank you--I gotta go buy a hammer so I can hang 'em I think there is a thrift in town that sells hammers for like $1 so I am swinging by there tomorrow so I will take a pic once they are hung and filled up.

KK good carvings you found. I think your tiki room should be coming along grandly. Let us know how its looking on that thread you started.

BK jealous of the price of your box. I actually have another box that I just got a few weeks ago but my friend is fixing the mirror so I will post that when I get it back.

Whenever I am out thrifting I always pick up S & Ps esp if there is only 1 lone shaker by itself. Never pay more than $0.75 for a single or $ 1 for a pair. I also pick up those toothpick holders and any other little trinket like Statue of Liberty lighters.

This is like 1/20 of what I have. Shakers and misc tourist trinkets that I find. My favorite are lame like the feet that say :"I walked my feet off in Canada

I am waiting to inherit about 300 sets of shakers from my Grandmother when she passes away. Oh how I love the clutter!

(oh and NO ONE give me crap about those horrible tiki shakers. They were one of those "tiki" gifts from a friend that I got not too long ago. Its the thought that counts, right?)

Wall plaques from the 50s. They have a 3D gravel effect and are each over a foot long.

Here are those shadow boxes filled up. Not too happy with how jumbled everything is but whatever. I am afraid that they will fall off the walls so I tried not to stick a bunch of heavy stuff in them.

I was able to clear up enough room on my shelves to get some of my mug collection off the ground. Lord I need more room!
