Went to an estate sale in Hollywood today.I was interested in a velvet painting that looked like it was done by CeCe Rodriguez. It was gone This stuff caught my wife’s and my eyes and came home with us.



Weatheradio-tunes into National Weather Service Battery powered, still works.



Authentic portholes, modified but will fit into my Tiki lounge



Pair of wooden figures. Filipino or Caribbean? Hope to frame them in an MCM style.



MCM glassware. Forgot to take an individual pic of the brown glass lampshade which might look pretty cool over my Tikibar counter top.




Ashtray



George Briard ice bucket




Early digital alarm clock? Mfd’d by Lawson in USA. AC powered-still works.

Nui, I keep picturing a party at your house: dozens of guests, each with his own personal ice bucket.

Great finds, as always.

Found the poster and record cleaner at a yard sale on my way to the market. I “refound” the typewriter in my shed while looking for something else. Almost forgot that I had it.

On the way to our local market my wife spotted a gentleman putting up his sidewalk sale merchandise. Browsing what was left she snagged this lamp. Shades are fiberglass, the goosenecks are brass tubes with swivels at either end.
Most of the one’s that I have seen have flexible necks. The bottom of the base is covered with a felt like material. It’s pretty dirty but I’m not complaining. We paid a fraction of we were prepared to spend. Darn thing works too.

Happened upon a gent last nightstarting a business close by. One sorta tiki item and plenny of very very dirty vintage and MCM Merchandise. Got this stuff when I returned today. Most of my finds cleaned up okay except the Arvin Radio which is pretty scuffed up Both radios use tubes so I got em mainly for their looks. The Table lamp was the main reason for the return visit.



Arvin brand radio on left-Packard Bell on rht.




My wife can’t resist pretty glass-she claims the red stuff is harder to find.



Myles Lucite Handbag. Very 50’s-surpisingly pricey

We see that red for sale EVERYWHERE here, mostly because Anchor Hocking was in Lancaster, Ohio.

It was said that the old red glass had gold in it.

The green is hard to find for some reason.
Both red and green most of the time is not that pricy.

Good stuff Nui! I snagged this vintage Global transistor radio a bit ago. It was really nasty but after a little TLC it turned out great.
