I gotta tell ya, Duane. You've found some amazing stuff, but I believe this to be the pinnacle of your success in the hunting world. For a kid born in 1963,(yours truly), the Banana Splits Club was our Shriners! All I've got left is this 45, but I had all of that stuff.


Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got to go find some baseball cards for my spokes so I can take this for a spin around the block!

Wow, did you just pick that bike up? Pretty damn cool, but I think I would hit my knee on the handlebars trying to ride that!!

Now that I can say I have them, they are going up on eBay...there is a minty set up there now for $599.00.

Yeah, I'm gonna take a wild guess that he doesn't get $599.00!
Are you really gonna sell yours?
The bike is actually my son's. It started life as a Mustard-Yellow Colombia 3-speed that we re-worked into "The Blue Devil"

Well congrats to you and your son, you did a nice job on the restoration. Yeah, dream on at $599.00 and I am not in a hurry to sell them just yet, I have a pile of other stuff to post first, but I will eventually put them up, maybe around Christmas time or possibly trade with someone for something tiki.

Beach Boys autographs, obtained by an autograph hunter during their 1964 New Zealand tour:



Signatures in order: Dennis Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, and Brian Wilson (who signed off by writing "B'Boys").

Since he is featured in the publicity photo which came with the signatures, I added an autograph I already had of David Marks, who was in the band's first line-up, and who left the band some months before the NZ tour.

The photo is interesting - it is in postcard format and is printed on stock card. It is from the photo session they did for their LP "Surfer Girl", although this particular photo wasn't used for the album cover (or on the back for that matter). Possibly the Beach Boys gave it to the autograph hunter when they signed their autographs for him.

These two items came in an awful glass frame, so I reframed them and added a reproduction of the cover of the NZ tour brochure downloaded off the Internet:



The bill featured not only The Beach Boys, but also Roy Orbison and The Surfaris, among others. You sure got value for your money in those days!

2 weeks and no new postings - what happened? Did I kill this thread or something?

It has been a while so I'll post some things I have found. I dig the beachboy's signatures above. The purple chick version of Smile is a favorite of mine when relaxing with a cocktail.

Anyhoo, here are some of my purchases over the last few months.

I really like this tv lamp. I added a flicker flame bulb but it was too weak for the effect I wanted. I might try one of those science project style flicker bulbs but they cost more than the lamp.


Here is another 1950s lamp. The shades need some help so this guy was $12.


If you look closely you can see a really cool spun aluminum serving tray I got for a dollar at the same place as the pink lamp.




That is all,
gabbahey

I posted this in the "show us your record collection" thread, but it seemed out of place there. Thought it might better belong here:



at a recent garage sale, I couldn't pass this "stag" album up....the verbiage kills me!
"the first to stick you in the ear with what you've always wanted to hear"

sadly (or not!), the "free genuine french tickler" (worth $2.00!) was not included. This was a little painful to listen to...retro, racy & raunchy! Funny, but a little too gross to listen all the way through.


"she craved sex 24 hours a day, and took it every way, with anyone, grocery boys, salesmen, bartenders, even bananas and carrots!!!"

yikes!

Wow, that is some cover!

Found this stuff while digging around a thrift store.


Front and back of a bar glass set. There are 8 tall glasses and 8 short glasses with various drink concoctions on the sides.



One glass decanter labeled "Scotch" but smelling distinctly of bourbon.



...and one laser disc copy of one of the greatest ignored movies of all time BUCKAROO BANZAI!!

That's a nice looking decanter there. It's a Jim Beam Decanter. Jim Beam is Kentucky straight bourbon (90 proof), so you were correct in it's smell! These decanters came in various colors from black, to a deep purple, to white (and of course just about a few other colors in between. Yours is a nice soothing color and I bet looks really nice full of Kentucky straight bourbon.

Thanks for the info! I plan on making full use of it soon.
