Out with the New in With the Old



Well I finally got a real Willie Wirehand for the collection. I have had another one for a few years but after paying top dollar and getting it in the mail it turned out a fake. Long story short was unable to return it so we kept in on the shelf. Now with the 2 next to each other it is even more clear it's a knock off ( Not a bad job though)

More Lanky

Another Lanky Planky piece added to my ever growing Lanky Collection ( 2 pieces).

What looks like a scale is actually a wall thermometer. Nice thing now is I know where is was from, Barr Lumber.

Image off the nail apron I already blogged about.

While re-boxing a huge magazine collection I bought from an estate I went to their garage to get an empty trashcan to dump some bug eaten issues. In the bottom of the can was this little Pep Boy Trashbag package(Still full of trash bags, which I plan on using only once) so I saved the trashbags from the trash can.

Question all? what is Manny (The one with the Cigar) putting into the bag???

Big Bowl

1 side of a 2 sided Kelloggs 1959 cereal display.
The piece is about 2 feet wide. You wonder how this stuff survives somewhere forgotten for all these years. The guy I got it from last weekend said it was stashed under a bed. My friend bought a similar display from this guy a month ago that had a metallic rooster piece and a contest to win a 1959 impala automobile along with the bowl piece like this one.

Our friends have part of their Knott's Berry Farm collection on display and I had to take a shot of this to share.

One to keep an eye out for my collection.

Came across this great logo on a slide projector yesterday

Since I do not collect slide projectors a shot with my cell phone camera was good enough.

Number 1 Contender

After you get a collection of things together there is always some sort of ranking. My spray can collection is no exception. Check out the great can I got from my good Friend Jim over the holidays.

Out of all the cans I have so far this one blew me away when I opened it.
Thanks Jim !
