  1. Ms.CrystalShip - yes, back to a day when peace was something we all wanted.
  2. Watchsearcher the finial I was told is the "tree of life" although personally I think it is a mushroom cloud with skulls along the edge. Funny I thought it may be a bird house too except for no floor....
  3. Thanks Watchsearcher & raven3766! My taste is a little off the beaten path.
  4. Stunning. I absolutely adore them.
  5. Yes he did. At least that is the first time I ever heard of him.
  6. EXTRAORDINARY FIND! I looked at the collection - remarkable images. He was a visionary, thanks for sharing.
  7. Ha ha --- and why oh why did we apparently like THAT voice?
  8. I wonder how long it was before someone said "Hey man, I think we are supposed to ride inside the bus, not on top..."
  9. Laughing - Watchsearcher - looks like an illustration I once saw.
  10. Well be it 30 or even 40 years, still isn't enough time between cream ales... yeech. Ha ha.
  11. blunderbuss2 that is a remarkable story and beyond fabulous that their family history has been preserved.
  12. AnythingObscure - it is, without question, just plain WEIRD... :-)
  13. I remember watching the game. It was on both networks in glorious black and white. I was an AFL fan and it didn't work out for us until Superbowl III.
  14. Historic and a game I have never seen! Well done.
  15. Thank you Thomas and Keramikos. That's what I thought, also reminds me of the Memphis Design inspired jewelry. I have seen a lot of 60s-70s designed items and this to me just didn't quite fit but ...
  16. I love, love, love these. I sold my Fada bullet Radio when I retired, wish I hadn't - was my favorite yard sale find ever. These are killer.
  17. Ha ha - Blunderbus - nothing wrong with that. My draft number was 355 i felt I used all the luck of a lifetime on that number.
  18. More MOD wallpaper than psychedelic. Although I have seen some that are shall we say, in the ballpark.
  19. That is a spectacular set with fabulous style! She is quite a lady to help you that way and truly understands the Christmas spirit.
  20. Toyrebel, that is the best question I have ever been asked as a collector. I wil have to look into that...
  21. Those are exceptional and so unusual - never seen anything like them.
  22. Ha ha ha...
  23. That biplane pilot must have been a fabulous sight to see! They just don't make them like that anymore.
  24. AnythingObscure... I am laughing. My obsession knows no bounds.
  25. Spectacular seeing them all lined up like this! LOVE THIS. Late 60s - early 70s I assume...
  26. ho2cultcha you should be very proud of your uncle and grandfather. It took courage.
  27. OH! I LOVE this - sometimes it pays NOT to change your mind.
  28. Artfoot - so that's where they came from! Never knew if they just stole Dad's. Thanks for the input.
  29. Thanks vetraio50 - I found these were a compulsive buy... ha ha.
  30. Thanks Buckethead - you too!
  31. Thanks Scott. I am trying to get the name of this veteran but as of now, the sister won't release it to me for the provenance.
  32. Thanks Watchsearcher. I am very glad you still have the family quilts. We own several of my great aunt's 1930s quilts and regret deeply I didn't salvage the one my Grandmother made for me that i used ...
  33. Picked up Pearl at a yard sale a couple weeks ago. A classic!
  34. LOVE the early space items - realllly cool!
  35. blunderbuss2 - what exactly from my description was "brainwashed"? hmmmmm...
  36. I have that stool cover. I put it on an old cast iron stool - yours is much more appropriate. Not by Peter Max but certainly influenced by his designs.
  37. keramikos - WOW - you nailed it. That is the photo the artist used - funny, you think he only had B&W photos, so I imagine sometimes he might be off with eye and hair colors. Thanks for your help.
  38. Must be a poltergeist!
  39. They did a really good job, I agree.
  40. How did I miss this one? A great and historic Civil Rights piece.
  41. Great find! I have seen similar pieces on ebay so think your identification is spot on.
  42. Thanks Newfld. --- And Efesgirl - thanks for the heads up, I had missed it... That is one coooool Belt! I wonder if both are made by a European maker? They are quite bold designs.
  43. buckethead - I read it to my kids they always laughed when I read slllooooooooow fe-et, QUICKFEET! Had to have this.
  44. HA HA -- Thanks. Try the cellar door first...
  45. Loved the comments thank you. The lady with Cagney is a favorite but I will admit I didn't recognize her either - Loretta Young (I know from the movie Taxi).
  46. Nice to hear from you Toyrebel. Thanks, I am trying to find items that speak to the times and will make more sense in context than seen alone. I see a lot of anti-Nixon buttons, not so much Wallace & ...
  47. Thank you all for your comments. I am a firm believer in history should never be forgotten and it is rewarding to collect things that can open dialog - something this country sadly lacks today.
  48. WOW - this was really Wavy Gravy! Have read about him online. An icon of the times... but you sold pinback buttons, probably wish you had kept samples. I used to thumb all the time, a different er...
  49. ..and I never knew it was Paul's coffin! Or if I did, I forgot - another sign it really has been half a century.
  50. Mr. Hippie salutes you! I like your collection a lot but how - exactly - could it possibly 50 years? Damn that would make me ...
