Mrs 8FT's Christmas gift.
Found at a flea show. You shoulda seen the looks I got carrying this out of the building! Some pity, some envy.





The base has a cheap little florist foam block and plastic flowers in it. It needs to go. Does anyone know what originally could have been there or have suggestions as to what would look better there? Thanks

I would bet that originally it was meant for plastic foliage. You could fill it with those colored glass bead things but I think some fresh plastic plants would be more fitting to the era of the lamp. Great find.

I love the look of old plastic plants, they give the piece a vintage look. I like this lamp I think it will look great in the right spot.

Thank you thank you. We really were hoping someone may have a pic. in an old catalog. I guess we will sit tight and wait for your photo if it surfaces!

You could fill the lamp base with wooden fruit to match the wood up near the shade. Toss in some wooden pineapples for a tropical theme.

I just found this in a thrift store in the kids toy section.

Its from 1972 and I thought it was just a kid's game of checker's to use on the floor.

Until I saw it was 2 adults in the picture. And that it was intended for Swingers!



That's right strip checkers ! Each of the game pieces has an article of clothing on it-black for the guys and red ones for the girls.
Oh and the checkerboard is fur!




Brillant!

Nice one Leleliz, it's a win win playing that game.

Also, let's see the items on the red ones for the ladies to remove.. Might have to swap a few items.. Not to many tie wearing men these days..

So if you lose your ginch checker how are you supposed to take em off if you still have your shoes and pants on? This is an important matter that has been troubling me.

I actually have already sold this set for a pretty large profit but here are a pic of the girl/red checkers.

I like the one for wrist watch and girdle. I guess in the 70s everyone wore both!

I found a pair of those here for about the same price. I then resold them for $25 online.

I have to admit...i miss those glasses. The pioneer club stuff is pretty collectible.

Great find

Just found this outrageous tu-tone hand mixer from the early 60's. Gotta love the jet intake.




Shape looks kinda familiar... where have I seen it before????
