We’ve been busy getting our 1961 Aljo ready for camping season, so I’ve been visiting secondhand stores and estate sales to see what 1960s stuff I can find. Today I scored! Look what I found.
I got the clock for $5 at an estate sale. We were going to take off the wood spikes so that it would fit into the trailer, but a quick search on ebay shows that these are selling for over $200. I think I’ll think twice about modifying it. I may sell this and get what I really want, An Atomic Lounge piece of art from here.
I also picked up these great wooden salt and pepper shakers. They have “Made in Honduras” printed on the top. The sides with the S and P are similar but all of the other sides are different. They stand about 6 in. high.
I also got these for $5 for the pair. We have a friend who has a Tiki Lounge themed vintage trailer. We’ll probably give them to them for the trailer.
A few weeks ago, I picked up a few more things for the Atomic Lounge including this great Last Call/Happy Hour sign.
This sign lights up and sits perfectly in the front window of the trailer.
I also scored when I found a box of swizzle sticks from the old Hoyt Hotel in Portland. It was torn down in the early 70’s and was the home of the Barbary Coast Bar. It was the place where Darcelle got her start.
This only shows a few, but I got about 500 of these swizzle sticks. I think I’ll hand them out to people who visit during the vintage trailer rallies.
I also picked up a few other things that I haven’t taken any pictures of. I’ll be sure to include them in future posts.
So, what does Kendall think about all of this shopping?
