Found some nice stuff at garage sales last weekend.

This was absolutely my favorite toy when I was growing up:




Mattel Thingmaker "Fright Factory", "Fun Flowers" and "Creeple Peeple" sets. Did anyone else have these as a kid?

I also found a couple of un-used Tupper-Toys "Snapics" picture sets from 1965:

A mint, never-used Moulinex food processor from 1969:

And this toy, miniature, cast-iron, wood-burning stove with all its working parts and pots and pans:

It looks like it was made for dolls, or perhaps a salesman sample.

I think I spent $35 on all of it. A very gratifying haul.

Sabu

Those Thing Maker sets bring back memories of Plastigoop!

I had some good finds last weekend also. I found a 1959/60 AAA tour book of the entire Southwest (AZ, CA, NM, NV, UT). There are plenty of great motel ads and descriptions of many tiki establishments long since gone. I also found some 1950s decorating and home improvement books, a 1963 State Farm atlas (great for finding old highway routes), and several exotica records in great shape. The lot was $20.

Been wanting one of these for ages. This isn't the nicest I have seen, but a damn good one. It was at a make-shift flea market a few blocks from the house. First person said $40, the owner said $25. SOLD! These pics make it look scratched up. It is not. Minty. I cleaned it with Windex and it now sparkles!




It must weigh 40 pounds! Works a bit. Need some lube.

At the weekend I went to a car boot sale (like a flea market or something) with the hope of buying an old portable record player for the Lono Lounge. It seemed wrong to have a Tiki bar with a modern sound system, so I wanted something that would just play vinyl, ideally one of those turntable/amp/speaker systems with a carrying handle. I struck it lucky within 10 minutes - this little beauty cost 5 ($10) and just needed a wipe with a damp cloth. Even the original 12" vinyl shape paper instructions were on the turntable.
