One Piece At A Time

I found these steel boobs in a shitty old falling down ex body shop. I think that they were a bra form store display from way back. I found the cast iron base at another sale. I found a piece of 3/8" round stock just rusty enough to match the rest in the garage with the opossums pictured below. Put all three pieces together, wax and presto!!! Pure class!!!

What the F@CK!

I've seen a lot of crazy things in houses and garages while attending estate sales. I was not prepared for this though.

A mother opossum thought that she had found the perfect spot for family. Mother and babies were nestled together in a cardboard box on a shelf in the garage at a sale I was at on Tuesday. This was by far the messiest garage I had been in, in a long time. Good thing she wasn't in a wood box, I would've had to kick her ass out!

Saturday Swap Meet Find

Relax Don't Panic...Go With Moon

It's just a tiny trinket with no real value, but how cool is that...A Moon Eyes freebee first aid kit!

70's Biker Belt

Heres a blast from the past. These primary chain belts were sold out of Easy Rider Magazine in the 1970's. This one is in great shape and will fit up to a 32" waist. Contact me through my profile page if interested.

The Truth Be Told...

I have sold at the antique swap meets off and on for nearly 20 years. I had a retail vintage store for over 10. The one question people always ask is, "where do you get this stuff?" The truth is, it's easy as pie.

Uncle Sam

I love patriotic imagery even if it's on an old can of hand cleaner.

I found a can like this years ago and it has been in my personal collection all this time. I had never seen another until last weekend. This taller version turned up at a local estate sale. I have always like the image of Uncle Sam rolling up his sleeves. People don't do that anymore. It's time to get to work America!
