I can verify this. I used to work for a Miller beer distributor back in the late 90's. I don't remember the exact date, but around the early-mid 90's Miller decided to make the beer seem hip by abbreviating it. Yes,long before Kentucky Fried Chicken thought of it. I hate to say that the POS (point of sale) sign is not old atomic age, but a newer incarnation.

But have no fear, there are a few options you can choose. You could sell it to someone who collects beer memorabilia, have someone (or yourself if you are inclined) design a retro been label and such and replace the Miller text and logo, or keep it as is an enjoy it. I honestly don't see a problem with it as is, but I do enjoy Miller Genuine Draft on occasions to remember the old days when I started drinking. Bottom line is that not matter what the age, it's a nice sign!

Picked this Mid-Century display case up at an auction a couple of weeks back. Finally got it reassembled, cleaned & filled (for now).:







I have this same case! My mom picked it up for $10 at an auction. It's in great shape but it is incredibly light, kind of plastic feeling, right? I wonder if anyone knows anything else about these.

Found this nice globe bar at the thrift store today for next to nothing which is just what I had in my wallet. After a major cleanup I think it looks great. I am not sure what the plaque is about. The piece must have been a gift item as it is to small for a store display. The interior has spaces for small glasses and an area in the middle for an ice bucket.

Thanks guys. I am going to try and fit it into my bar. It's not Tiki by a long shot but tucked into a corner with some of my other nautical junk I think I can pull it off. People get a kick out of me calling that tiny area the "Captain's Cabin" but it works for me.

Heck yeah that's a nice globe bar. I've been looking at them online for some time and the average price is close to $200. Great score!

I found this rattan lamp. It has a woven cord so it may be from the 40's or 30's.



Anyone have any information on this. Or have any idea what the original shade was like.

And I found a cousin of the Moai mosaic.



Not a mark on it anywhere to identify it's origin. Probably a kit, but it must have been a really big, really heavy kit.

Found this pair of African statues at a small yard sale that really give the room a "The natives are getting restless" vibe.

They keep rubbing their stomachs and pointing to the large kettle on the fire.

This is my latest find that I am truly excited about. It's a circa 1977 Marantz 2265b stereo. It's in fantastic shape overall and it sounds super sweet and I think it's a true beauty.
