I just found this in a thrift store in the kids toy section.

Its from 1972 and I thought it was just a kid's game of checker's to use on the floor.

Until I saw it was 2 adults in the picture. And that it was intended for Swingers!



That's right strip checkers ! Each of the game pieces has an article of clothing on it-black for the guys and red ones for the girls.
Oh and the checkerboard is fur!




Brillant!

A real boomerang table has been on my list of things to find for a long time. I made one myself to use until now. I'm really happy with this two-tiered one that showed up in an antique mall I'm in regularly.

Killer find there Bongo!!!! Was that from a small Southern Mi. town that you and I know about? All I have to show is this awesome vintage hand painted silk tie. $0.99 was the right price. I think it may date from the late 40's.

Thanks Trav and I love your tie. The table came from one of the antique malls in Niles, just north of the Indiana line. I have a restaurant five minutes from there.

Nice find Erk. I have seen a bunch of those over the years at antique shows and shops. I think many of them came with a top to cover the contents. Kind of a chrome half of the globe thing if that makes any sense. Looks like Mego Mr. Spock might be looking for some Romulan Ale from that dispenser

I get down to Niles once in a great while. Whats the name of your restaurant? The wife and I may stop in sometime for lunch.

Hhehe, it will help him drown out the pain of his leg being held on with a rubber band.

Nothing tiki so far this season (yard sale season that is) but as a nice consolation I found this sweet driftwood and coral mushroom lamp that looks like elves make cookies inside it.

I got me one of these with the top. Mine has a bowler on top of the dome. I'll have to remember to add a photo of it later...

I need to go back to the flea market and see if maybe the top is there somewhere. I'd like to have the whole piece but I'm happy with what I found.

The boxed lot was $5 for all...

Same store found this cool 1950s-esque advertising glass;



Muntz Realty with Turquoise and Gold colors.

Coupla recent finds.
A killer donut maker. I can't wait to try it. Anyone know a good donut recipe?


A "Sister" pillow case from Camp Gruber, OK. Nothing says "Love Ya, Sis" like a pillow case with Dive Bombers & Long Range Guns on it!

Found these rare, I mean rare Banana Splits fan club memorabilia from 1968...


The Banana Splits Club pennant, Banana Splits Official Charter Member certificate, Official Banana Splits Code Machine, The Banana Splits Official Club Membership Book and The Banana Splits Fan Club picture!

I always wanted to be a member of The Banana Splits Club!

One banana, two banana, three banana, four
Four bananas make a bunch and so do many more.
Over hill and highway the banana buggies go
Comin' to bring you the Banana Split show
Makin' up a mess of fun, makin' up a mess of fun
Lots of fun for everyone

(CHORUS)
Tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la

Four banana, three banana, two banana, one
All bananas playin' in the bright warm sun.
Flippin' like a pancake, popping like a cork
Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper an' Snork

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Two banana, four banana, one banana, three
Swingin' like a bunch on monkeys, hangin' from a tree.
Hey there, ev'rybody, won't you come along and see
How much like Banana Splits ev'ryone can be

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Makin up a mess of fun
Makin up a mess of fun
Happiness for ev'ryone
Tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la

Uh, oh, Chongo...it's Danger Island!

Later,

PTD
