Does Anyone Recognize

this little pinback button? I've had it for a few years in my desk drawer. It's always seemed familiar but I have never been able to figure out what the logo is. Does anybody have an idea????

Rings For Sale

I've got these two great rings for sale. Email me through my profile page if interested.

The first is this great Mexican nickle silver skull ring. This thing is COOL. Red jeweled eyes and the number 13 across his forehead. This dates from the late 1940's or early 1950's. The ring is about a size 8-8 1/2.

Secondly, I have this great sterling silver Indian head ring. This is a cast piece that dates to the 1950's. It's about a size 10.

Looking Back..........

at the weekend all I can say, is that I'm glad it's over. Four long days of packing, loading, unloading, unpacking, up and down three flights of stairs, and plenty of blood, sweat and tears can take a toll on a mans soul. I am happy to have seen old friends, made new ones, and for Scott who always seemed to show up with a beer when I really needed it. His generosity is constant and always appreciated.

Here are a few shots of my booth.

I stole the following picture from Shinya Kimuras blog Chabott Engineering. Thank You Shinya and Ayu for the huge compliment!

Busy Weekend

Against my better judgement, I have signed on to be a part of Rin Tanaka's INSPIRATION show this weekend on the Queen Mary here in Long Beach. The load in and load out are gonna kick my butt but I'm sure the in between will be a blast. I will be taking a brand new load of vintage rust and canvas sure to please the crowd. This great Triumph neon clock will be for sale and should lead you right into my booth. Stop on by and say, "hey" if you are so inclined. I have also just gotten word that my old pal Sara Ray will be in attendance.

I will also be at the Rose Bowl Flea Market on Sunday if I am at all able to drag myself out of bed.

I had a couple of WTF moments yesterday and I decided to share. First of all I purchased this great fiberglass snowman earlier in the week at a sale. He stands about 5 foot tall and has a great look. It's been in the back of my truck for a couple of days.

I went to pull it out yesterday and spotted something strange in the crack on the bottom.

WTF! There are nude women molded into the inside bottom of my snowman!

Secondly, a friend and I were walking a local junk meet and he walks up and with this motorcycle hat that he had just found. "Let me see that", I say....

WTF! Check out the badge...a naked dude with a little boy on the back of his bike!
