This week I’m recycling another old post. Why? Well, we still have it and we just brought it to the Mega Mall. Booth M-9.
And to top it off we will be having a Sale!
In order to reduce our inventory we will be offering 20% off at our Mega Mall booth only. This Sale starts This Friday 5/12/17 and ends Sunday 5/28/17. Get there early for the best selection. So, with that said if you’ve had your eye on anything special now is the time to buy it. I don’t run sales very often.
Now back to your regularly scheduled Pick of the Week.
It is a New Ideal Treadle Sewing machine. It dates to around 1900 and can be made to work with a little cleaning and lubricating.This rare find comes complete with original instructions, 2 belts, a key to lock the cabinet and a box of accessories. You will be hard pressed to find another machine of this age with so many of the necessary pieces. Whether you are Amish, getting off the grid, steam punk or just afraid of the impending zombie apocalypse this is the sewing machine for you.
It’s time to highlight another great find. This great pick is newly listed on our Etsy shop. A vintage 1972 Pabst Blue Ribbon “School Year Calendar”. This Cool advertising piece measures 8″ wide by 68 1/4″ long. It features a lovely Flapper girl and would be incredible framed. I know there is a Man Cave out there that needs this.
Locally I will be bringing some new things to our booth (M-9) at the Mega Mall this Sunday. If you are in Lansing stop by. The treasure hunting’s always great at the Mega Mall.
This week our “Pick” is going to Discogs. It’s The Mugwumps, who are the Mugwumps you might ask. Well, in the summer of 1964, before they were part of the Mamas and the Papas, Cass Elliot and Denny Doherty along with Jim Hendricks (The Lamp of Childhood) and Zal Yanovsky (The Lovin’ Spoonful) got together to record these nine songs. In these early recordings it is easy to see that these people were on their way to greatness. It is folk, pop and full of heart.
