Here's a little clam shell I picked up at a yard sale... Yep, it's real. (Soda can for size reference)

Cool finds on the record player and the giant shell !!! Presenting the Melnor Roll & Reel lawn sprinkler. Fresh from the time machine, star date 1962. This little gem has a front wheel that fits over the stretched out garden hose. The sprinkler moves along the hose a reels the hose up as it moves. Another fun Michigan find and still works perfectly.

Thanks BK. That sprinkler has wheels but it's no hotrod. It redlines at about twelve feet an hour. Another beyond find is this 1959 life mask of Vincent Price for my wife, she loves Mr. Price.

UnKa Trav-

I was looking at this post on my iPad
Images enlarged
Slowly scrolling down, when I saw Vincent Price
I thought it was a real person until I scrolled down to the neck area
That was funny
Looked so real



Just over 100 different vintage Vegas postcards
1.00




And this book of matches

0.10

So I bought this nautical ship light.... I'm no expert in nautical lights, but I own quite a few and like them. This one had me confused but for $50 I liked it and I especially liked the price. About 14in tall and 10in across...
After research, it turns out its an Adlake railroad light for a bridge or a pier.....who knew?
I still dig it, and I doubt Anyone will ever know when I mix it in with my other nautical stuff....

I was all happy when I found this, I've always wanted one. All the ones in the past have been fat money. My excitement became disappointment when I saw all the damage (chipped noses, missing arm, cracked base) but he was cheap and I bought him anyway. I'll angle him in the corner so the missing arm isn't so noticeable.... I think I'm gonna fashion him a skirt or sarong of sorts to cover his business...

Scored this 1978 Star Trek back glass for a pinball machine. It is a peice of art in my view. The photo can't even begin to show the colors of the graphics.

Thrift store find: 5 Siestaware mugs. If they are from a 6 piece set I am missing the white mug.I donít consider them ďTikiĒ or Hawaiiana but the colors will go well with our MCM stuff.

Snagged this fiberglass/resin globe at a used furniture/antique store this morning. The store owner said it came from Bahookas.
IĒve patronized this store for years. The globe is very dusty and the fishnet leads me to believe this claim. Never seen a resin/fishnet combo anywhere else.
Iím removing the net -itís gonna be a Swag lamp once again.
It will go well with the white lamp I found earlier.
