Thanks BK. I've been on the hunt for a new watch to wear while I'm not at work now for awhile. I wanted to go vintage and mechanical but could never decide on what to get. I got inspired by a junked up trophy I found with a vintage diver on it. Long story short, I went with a Vostok Amphibia Russian divers watch. Built like a tank. They have been making this same design since the 60's. Brand new with a cool vintage design and an automatic mechanical movement and waterproof to 660 feet! Though technically not a find you can pick these up for around $70. Next time I'm diving for gold bars on the Atocha I'll be ready

Had a good yard sale weekend here despite the heat. Scored an entire Pioneer stereo system from the late 80's. Tuner, amp, cd player, graphic equalizer, dual cassette deck, turntable and remote control with original manuals all in a glass front Pioneer stereo cabinet. No speakers but everything is in amazing condition and the cost....$5 bucks. Couldn't believe it.




Also got this very rare Coca-Cola airline suitcase cooler that stewardesses used on flights. Note the bottle opener mounted on the side. It was one of those moments when your brain says "You've never seen one like that, you BETTER buy it." SO I did.

nui 'umi 'umi, Thanks. I'm the one who posted that cooler. And to answer your question about the stereo turntable, Yes it does have the stylus. I was really excited to find this stereo because I always liked Pioneer products. I think this dates from about 1988. I just added a photo of my find to my original post. Rock on! 8FT

Sorry 8 FT. Musta been the Aviation and Blue Moon cocktails that fuzzed my brain all up. Mahalo for posting the pic of the “components”. A setup like that was a must have when I was a young man.
Cheers

Found this little beauty at a thrift store yesterday. Full on art nouveau design. At first I thought it was a car mascot due to the threaded base and the design in the style of French artist Luciel Sevin. After some research I was able to find out it is actually a figure for a lamp made by the Aladdin Lamp Co. In 1938. At 11" tall an impressive and beautiful piece and rare indeed. You never know what you will find out there and that's what keeps me on the hunt.

Scored this awesome industrial stool today. I have been looking for a vintage one for my basement shop for a while now. I tinker around and on occasion build a miniature hut at the bench in the winter. Today was the day I found the perfect one. Made in the 1920s by the Angle Steel Stool Company of Plainwell Mi. They are still in business and only ten miles from my house. I'm a happy man. It's hard to believe the prices people ask for these vintage stools but this one was a deal.
