5/25/18 Antique photo album find!

My most recent acquisition from a local auction is this photo album. U.S. Army Clarence A. McMullenโ€™s trip around the world on U.S. Army Transport Heffron in 1920. And various others. Many USS and USAT ship photos. My favorite part is all the photographs have brief description, locations and dated backs.ย Old photographs are truly something special.

Been neglecting my blog but I will be updating more often now.

6/27/2015 Yard Sale Finds

I purchased some great vintage items this week at an estate sale and a moving sale. What I love about doing what I do is you never know what you will find or where you will find it. It keeps things interesting and it’s never boring.
A whole box of vintage CocaCola trucker hats.   
A cute fly made out of spoons and forks etc.

I really love old sheet music. The graphics and colors give you an amazing look back in time. I got several hundred of these from an flea market for $20. These date from mid 1840’s-1940’s. I haven’t had a chance to go through them all or look up any values but there could be some real gems in here๐Ÿ˜

6/13/2015 Yard Sale Finds

Vintage video games !!! Who doesn’t love these, I know I do. As obsolete they are, they bring you back to the 80’s instantly. I purchased a whole box for $60 at a yard sale on Saturday morning. I was the first one there and snagged this bargain up, Yey๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Included was a 35yo woody Atari, 46 games with nearly all their manuals, and some various controllers!

5/30/2015 Yard Sale Finds

This weeks highlight was one particular yard sale which I got a bunch of awesome items for very reasonable prices๐Ÿ˜„ this was the start of a moving sale and she was selling everything out of her garage. So I was able to uncover some really neat items. Shown below is just a handful of what I found there, I bought a lot๐Ÿ˜‰ 

 I only paid $1 for this painting. Painted landscape Signed by artist “Henry Ernest Fritzsche ’07”. I believe it is 1907 because I looked name up and matches man who was painter among other things born 1874.
Vintage Tile-tex store display sign. Very cool original sign in excellent condition. 

  This is a whole stack of 80s-90s sports hats with original tags still attached, very cool.
These are pencil drawings done in the early 1990’s in the style of comics. Extremely well done, super detailed up close!    

This is just a pen drawling of a deer but I liked it, it’s got some feeling.

5/23/2015 Estate Sale Finds

  
My find of the day, maybe of the month even: 39 Star American Flag with old pen writing on it which reads “Election of Harrison 1888”. It was oddly written correctly facing on the upside down flag. Thought that was interesting and worth noting. Benjamin Harrison won over Grover Cleveland. This election was notable for being the third of four U.S. presidential elections in which the winner did not win the popular vote. The first, in 1824, saw John Quincy Adams elected by the House. The second occurred just 12 years earlier in 1876, while the fourth would occur 112 years later in 2000.- Wikipedia

05/16/2015 Yard Sale Finds

Hi all๐Ÿ˜€ I have some interesting things this week to share from my many yard sale adventures. First off a 1920s Salesman 7 Bottle Container. After that there is a cool window fan. Love that color and I don’t even mind that’s it’s got some scratches and wear. It looks even cooler to me that you can see it is an old fan not a reproduction. Last but not least a 1940s Western Electric Bakelite telephone, purchased for $20 at a yard sale and sold on eBay already for $70.
