Found some cool stuff lately. First is a cool 1963 space lunchbox. This box was recalled because the manufacturer used an image of the Mercury capsule from National Geographic magazine without permission.




Next is a very rare CROWN PR-350 tube pocket radio. The missing link between transistors and tubes from around 1950-55. Super cool!!





And this small mid century modern fish wall plaque.

Uncle T, My Beyond Tiki Finds are not in the same league as your recent ones but here they are;
Grabbed all 5 at a thrift.Donít know for sure if they are MCM or not. They are small kine-3 or 4 ounce's


This sake is still being produced in NorCal. I think itíll look cool hanging someplace in my tiki lounge

The box that the Featherlite cooler was in had a shipping label dated 1965. The thermos is an Aladdin and has a glass liner/insert.

Picked up this gorgeous 1890 Rochester Optical Co. THE IDEAL glass plate camera. It is in a big 8" X 10" format. From a time when craftsmanship really mattered. Hand made with brass, leather, mahogany and American cherry woods. It is in outstanding shape for it's age and the photos can't show just how nice the camera really is. Just awesome! That's a 12oz bottle for size comparison.

Nice mule mug! Here is a rare find. Here is a tuxedo jacket for a captain of the wait staff from the original Flamingo Casino in Vegas. Dating from the late 40s to the early 50s. Found at a local thrift store. Missing a couple of buttons but the fact that the thing even survived all these years is amazing. Gotta love the hunt.

Unca T, That IS absolutely a fabulous find! Are you gonna wear it to a tiki event or display it in your lounge or both?
Now Iím embarrassed to post my recent thrift store find. Itís a vc hat that Iím gonna use as part of a tiki lamp. Not exactly sure how but it has some nice detail to it.
