How's About a Nice Hawaiian Blog?


I found this Hawaiian cutey at a recent sale.  She's plastic and tin and a wind-up.  She was made in Japan and probably dates to the 1960's.

A Crushing Find

Although I have absolutely no use for this 1960's Rival Ice-O-Mat Ice Crusher, I couldn't leave it behind for $2. It's in remarkable condition.

A Sketchy Mystery

 I find myself apologizing once again for the state of this blog.  Here we are in the throws of summer and nary a post about my garage sale adventures.  Rest assured, I've been at it weekend in and weekend out and treasures(?) have been found. I just haven't taken time to write about any.  So let me start off this summer with this freebie I found a few weeks ago.

And Now the Rest...

The odd thing with my garage sale experiences is once I find something, even if it's something I've never seen before, I tend to find another or related item in quick succession.  Maybe I'm just more aware, having found the first, but I don't think so.

While out garage saling this morning, my eyes landed on this in a box of assorted items.  I immediately recognized it.

I found these colorful aluminum stirrers at an estate sale for a dollar. With a decorative leaf for the bowl end of the spoon, I they must be for iced tea rather than alcohol. And just in time for summer!

Button, Button

I recently found this sheet advertising "Fun Paks" of buttons made by the Badge-a-Minit company of LaSalle, Illinois.  These buttons would be sold on a display carousel in "high traffic retail locations".

It's a fun slice of 1970's humor.

It's time once again to dye and decorate the unborn children of our fowl feathered friends. Yes, I'm talking about Easter.

Tired of those cheap Paas tablets that turn your fingers all the colors of the rainbow?  Then might I suggest "The Decoregger" (as seen on TV! the '70's)
