As I'm digging into the stuff, I'm finding things that are quite blog-worthy, even if they aren't current finds. Since the current finds will be scarce for a while, I'm going to share these other finds in posts I'll be calling "Stuff I Haven't Shown You." Or "Stuff I Didn't Show You." Or something like that.
I found this puppy at Goodwill for a DOLLAR!
I am now in B Movie heaven! I needed this too. It's good for at least a couple oddball film festivals. You gotta have some downtime after working the booths, you know.
|Beware the photo-bombing Monkey!|
Super-cute kitty creamer. It reminds me of something you would find in one of Linda's cubbies. With the paw extended to form the spout like that, it also reminds me of a certain handsome furry fellow.
I fell in love with this Ike and Mamie plate, solely for the look on her face.
Doesn't she look like she's up to something, or at the very least knows something he doesn't?
The scene in this little dish just cracks me up. Sorry about the glare. The caption reads: "Sairey Gamp Entertains Betsy Prio." How can you not love it? It's the kind of thing I would have put in my mother's Christmas stocking.
I got several large pictures with religious themes mounted on foamboard at a yard sale a while back. On the back, a lot of them have the initials "CHF" on them, which stands for Cathedral Heritage Foundation. I am thinking that these were some of the presentation pieces used for fundraising for the renovation of the cathedral here, which took place about ten or so years ago.
Backing that shot up, since the pics are already at the booth, you can see an aluminum lawn chair and an extremely large metal file box.
On the way to a sale, I found what seem to be the busted pieces of an old sewing machine in an alley. I salvaged the ones that were most intact and interesting, including this one, which I'm thinking is the logo for the manufacturer.
Finally, what do you do with your comics when you're through with them? Why, compost them, of course!
Just kidding. Actually, you send them to me. This oddity was a Free Comic Book Day find. It's a prime example of some of the really strange things that got published during the underground comix era. I love weird stuff like this!
That's it for this round. I'll try to do these once a week or so.
