Check out my older posts to see the rest of my group photo collection. The 2 largest ones shown here were purchased at a Bloomingdale's/Ralph Lauren prop sale for $3.00 each! I carried them home on the subway in the pouring rain. They were the first 2 I bought... the beginning of the collection!
Another cool collection from the home of Tom & Alan is this series of British boys books by G.A. Henty which are about adventures all over the world from the turn of the century. They were published worldwide but the original publisher Blackie & Sons, London, had these distinctive figures on the spine. Tom displays these on a high, wall to wall shelf in his studio and I just love the way they look! Shown here just an example.
I love to visit the home of my good friends Tom and Alan. They have a very beautiful and unique house filled with all sorts of cool stuff! Shown here: Alan's vintage typewriter ribbon tin collection and 2 vintage typewriters! Very cool! Check back to see more cool collections from T & A! Thanks for being my first GUEST COLLECTORS!
More fun! These colorful, vintage, ceramic roosters are also part of my kitchen collectibles. It was not my intention to start a collection of these! I picked up a cute one for 10 cents at a weekend flea market on 9th avenue when I was still living in NYC... need I say more! Shown here just a few highlights!
It's rummage sale season! Yay! I found the cocktail shaker in the middle with the Wedgewood pattern for 25 cents, the one to the right which has an etched pattern was 50 cents and I went a bit higher for the one on the left... black and gold stripes... $8.00. Nice additions to my collection! (See older posts.)
