Found at Value Village, approximately life-size. I believe the name for this type of thing is "comic foreground".

An early birthday gift from my wife. An inert XM388 ATOMIC PROJECTILE !!!! Made in the mid 1950's and used with the M-29 Davy Crockett Weapon System. What could be more 50's than Davy Crockett and nukes? Made to be shot down range with a recoilless rifle to a distance of two miles. As rare as hen's teeth and super cool. It will have a place down in the Hukilau Lounge as a tribute to the atomic age.

Well Uncle Trav you can now without a doubt use the word ATMOIC to truly describe a piece in your collection, I'm guessing not many people can do that. I'm with Jenn, put a top on it and use it as an end table, I know I wouldn't mind setting an icy beverage on it! Hate to say it, but it would probably have to be a Manhattan, well at least the first one anyway.

She found it in a little antique mall that we frequent in a small town to the west of us. Never know what will turn up out there in the wild !

Snagged this fiberglass/resin globe at a used furniture/antique store this morning. The store owner said it came from Bahookas.
I”ve 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.
I’m removing the net -it’s gonna be a Swag lamp once again.
It will go well with the white lamp I found earlier.





Im 99.9% sure that IS from Bahooka! It looks identical to the one I had inquired about, the week before they closed. The lady took my name down, and jotted down which lamp it was, and I was to call her back a few days later. Well, I did and found out that they "postponed" selling the stuff publicly, because they wanted to sell everything as a lot to one buyer....

Glad to see it wound up back in the TC community!

I almost removed the net and was planning on converting it to a mcm “swag” lamp as I’m sure that was what the sphere was made/designed for. Thankfully, Tikiskip brought it to my attention and it’s now hanging in my tikilonge as the tiki gods intended

The wahine found this while I was at work.

Fresh lime juice anyone?

Same store has had this swag lamp since I bought the one shown above. Claims it’s also from Bahooka. The store owner said”bought all three the seller had” . I got it cheap but It needs a good cleaning. It’s fiberglass with bits of translucent plastic glued on. We’ll see what it looks like after I clean it up. The store owner offered it to me at a 50% discount and I bit since I was only interested in the hard to find hardware. Always plenty of “projects” !

The rounded canopy (black) and the inner locking plate (white) are what I was primarily interested in.

Might be a gem in the rough.

Found the “outlaw"kit at a thrift and the chaise is a castoff sitting curbside.
Chaise is very dirty but otherwise in excellent shape. It’s mostly rattan with some bamboo.
At first I thought it was “Vintage 70’s" but there are remnants of velcro on the folding parts that shoots that thought down. Gonna take lotsa elbow grease to restore and then I gotta figure out where to put it-already have too much poolside furniture.

This has had several release’s since the initial 1961 or so

In spite of being a “folder” It’s pretty sturdy. Check out the little slide out tray for Mai Tai’s.
