I found this really cool shell lamp. Don't know how old it is but it looks vintage.



The best part is that it still works!



The bad part is that I want to replace the cord, and at some point the bulb will die, and I have no clue hoe to open this thing up. It looks like it was cut in the back, the cord inserted, that glued back up. I'm afraid since that shell is older then when it was turned into a lamp that it might be too fragile to reopen.

All of these I found in my grandmother's basement. 2 of the films are Woody Woodpecker, 1 is an Abbot & Costello and the rest are family home movies. They're in 8mm and not Super 8.
The home movie cameras weigh a ton, especially the Bell and Howell. The B & H projector still works and is built like a tank. The still camera is a Brownie Hawkeye and the other movie camera is a Kodak Brownie. All of the instructions were kept with the cameras. There is a even a film splicing kit with the films.

This is a wall sconce that was turned into a table lamp. There aren't an markings on it. The cord is an electrical fire waiting to happen and needs to be replaced.
Quite a bit of cleaning and TLC will make it look pretty again.

I usually don't have much opportunity for thrifting, but we dropped into Old Bones antiques while in Key West. The woman behind the counter told us that they had a supplier with family in Cuba who brings stuff back for them.

They had a pretty nice selection of nautical antiques. Among other things, they had 3 or 4 of the hugest glass fishing floats I have ever seen, they must have been 24"-30" in diameter. They all had a ponti and seemed pretty thick, I was really wondering if they could be real.

Swizzle sticks from Cuba:




pink: 3 Toneles
blue: Tropicana
green: Bacardi - note that the bat is flying out of a bottle
yellow: Montmartre

from:
Quote:

Tropicana, Truffin Ave. & Linea (B-4544). This claims to be the largest and most beautiful night club in the world. Located on what was once an extensive private estate, Tropicana has two complete sets of stages, table areas and dance floors. If the weather is fine, the outdoor area is used; otherwise everyone moves to the indoor area. Tall palm trees growing among the tables lend the proper tropical atmosphere and blend well with the ultra-modernistic architecture. Shows include 50-dancer chorus lines which often branch out into the trees. Rhythms and costumes are colorfully native (voodoo is a frequent theme.) Top names often star. Minimum at tables is $4.50 per person, but this can be avoided by sitting at bar which has adequate view of stage.

Montmarte, 23rd St & P (U-5207). Montmartre is the only major Havana night club that is entirely indoors. It is more conveniently located (in the Vedado section) than Tropicana, which is a 20-minute ride from the center of Havana. Montmartre, which used to confine its shows to a series of acts, now also goes in for large-scale productions, directed by an American. Name acts are frequently imported (most recent: Los Chavales de Espana). There is a $4.50 minimum at the tables, but none at the two bars (both of which afford a view of the stage).

WOW, I wish I had my camera with me last Saturday so that I could show you what blew my mind at a yard sale I stopped at. This lady had over 100 beer can crocheted hats from the 1970's that her Great G'ma had made. She said there about 150 when she gathered them up for the sale. I think they were all different and it was amazing. They were $3 each or 4 for $10. I wonder how much she would have taken for them all? I didn't ask. I only bought this one:





It looks completely ridiculous on me so I put it on my Pisco carving for a different view.
