I've been slacking on posting all of my finds lately, so I'll try to catch up chronologically. Found this stuff at Spring Brimfield:
Unopened pack of RedMan plastic Picnic-Ware.

This killer Drag Strip game by Milton Bradley. The object of the game is to shoot your marble up & around into the track to move your Fuel-Altered to the finish line. The first one to cross the finish line with all four of his cars wins. My kids got hooked on this game immediately.

I never thought I'd be lamenting the closing of a Mega-Chain, but I am kinda sorry to see Border's go belly up, but....not too sorry to score a $20.00 magazine rack to display my collection of vintage speed catalogs!


Picked up this unopened, Mirro Cooky & Pastry press for 8 bucks at a Flea Market.

More of an inheritance than a find - I was given my wife's grandpa's hot rod magazine collection including 100 or so issues from the 1960's with a complete run of Hot Rod from 1961-1965. It is a lot of reading but it is great. I am going to interview him about his drag racing/hot rodding days. He has some good stories.
Here are a few of the issues

Cover detail April 1965

I bagged and boarded 'em like a dork - it cost about $40 just for supplies. I really like the speed equipment catalogs - it makes you wonder where all those cool old parts went.

Very nice, my dad had one of those. It's how I saw Abbott and Costello and the Creature for the first times.

Some new stuff



A cool Swing-A-Way ice crusher. It's missing the wall bracket and has a bit of rust, but otherwise is in good shape.



One gigantic juice press. There are no markings so I don't know who made it, but this thing saves me a lot of time.

I found these skyscraper prints by an artist by the name of Bunnell that have a paint by numbers quality.

Found this at a yard sale. Any info would be appreciated. I feel like I've seen this somewhere.

Very nice specimen of vintage gravel art craft. They were sold in kits. The design is pre-printed on the backing, sort of a paint-by-number but with crushed gravel or glass. I remember helping my aunt make one when I was a child.

I love gravel art, unfortunately I have never found a tiki themed one.

Very cool, thanks for the info! Whoever did this one, put a lot of care into constructing it. It's got a nice spot on my wall.
