Found me one of these nut crackers at a Goodwill store, where it was just $2. I'm kinda surprised they had it on the shelf, I expect them to be too conservative for this kind of thing. Then, I thought these were from the Phillipeans and so was surprised to see the Hawaiian sticker on the back.

Found these (3) green, metal flake chairs in great shape for 10 bucks at a yard sale. Look like they could be from a bowling alley or diner? If you know any info on them, let me know. Can't find much online. Great chairs, though.

those are awesome chairs! Congrats!

@Bongo...I believe you are correct in the Disney tray being a TreasureCraft Piece. It is slightly possible that it could be a Japan clone, but I doubt it. I don't think the Japanese were making ceramic pieces in the likes of TC products.

Found a couple of 'koooool' items for reasonable prices.
First is a never used, or new old stock Coffee travel kit intact with the tags and warranty, even. I'm guessing late 1960's/early 70's based on the green color perculator,cups and the graphic cards. It even came with the unopned green MJB coffee canister.


And then....I'm a sucker for MCM, and this was something I've always wanted. Not exactly the style, but a vintage console, none the less. Its a Grundig Majestic model 7090/USA(1956-57) and came with the brouchure, schematic paper, and original die cut cardboard record with printed instructions for the REX/AA 4 speed turntable.

It even had a 1948 wheathead penny inside the back that must have fell in, and also a born on date tag still attached. August 16,1956.

I don't believe the back had ever been off of the console for work. The tubes still had original black fineline tape holding the tubes in, which is something i learned the factory did.
Downside is that, it isn't working, and I found at least one reason why so far.One Burnt out cyliner glass fuse. I ordered some online, and am anxiously awaiting the arrival, so I can get this thing running again. I've learned alot in the last 3 days alone, regarding the capacitors, paper caps, resistors and such. I am ready to get power into this and start replacing parts as needbe to get it restored. Afterall, even though it isn't powering up right now, it is in immaculant shape.

Tom
That Hi-Fi's a beauty. I was about 6 yrs old in '56 and remember my parents Hi-Fi console from Montgomery Wards. It weighed a ton.

I'm happy to see you were wearing pants in this photo. Nice find!

Dr, yes, this is a pretty heavy piece itself! I can't wait to get into it and make this console, sing!(Downside is the needle cartrige was listed at $113.xx on a vintage record player webiste, claiming these are rare.(Ouch!) Hope the needle I have isn't too bad! I can replace all of the resistors and replace the old paper caps with the newer mylar for under $30. The tubes vary in price(Average between $6-25, $25 being the highest, and only one needed at that cost. Like I mentioned, this isn't my ideal console set to own, but for the price and condition, I really couldn't pass it up.(Plus it will give me some practice and knowledge restoring the electronics as I go!)

Slacks, HAHAHAHA!...glad you pointed that out. It could gotten ugly real fast, had I been in shorts, or less...

Hey, TD. I don't think MGD's been around much more than 15 or 20 years. I'd be taking the MGD sign out & using that cool atomic part for something else.
