gettin' the "junkin" fever
I guess I must have been about ten years old when I first spied a hodge-podge of interesting stuff in the window of a secondhand store in my hometown of Sharpsburg, KY.
This was the first secondhand store I had ever seen and something deep inside my soul told I must go in and look around.
It was that very day that I discovered why my daddy loved to go "junkin" and I realized I had inherited the same passion for treasure… Continue

It is in good working condition,still going to this day.I have been told that things Russian are fetching quite a lot of money so just wondered if anyone knows anything about this sort of alarm clock.

I have a stoneware/ pottery, tow piece dish it is a flate white with yellow gloss,[what appears to be roster tails] on the top and bottom, and the ends [handles] are fluted,and fitted. The inscription on the bottom is, Canada, cb, cartier, cso. I found this piece at a secondhand store, for about $2.00, maybe 7 years ago, but I don't know t thing about it, except it looks good and I love it, I use as a decorative piece in my kitchen.

I have a 1930 Atwater Kent Radio in fair condition. It includes the chassis with alltubes in place and a bag of spare tubes. The speaker is also included. Would someone venture an approximate value for this piece of American history? I also have quite an extensive collection of 1920's to 1950's kitchen gadgets and tins as well as some small electric appliances like fans, toasters, and heaters. Please let me know if you are interested in these items. Thanks, Ed

I am terribly guilty of being an impulse buyer. Sometimes I don't know what I want until I see it. This has led to some great finds and a few wonderful 'steals'. But this type of shopping lends itself best to brick and mortar second hand stores, junk shops and antique malls. It is hard to find what you are looking for online when you don't know
what it is you are looking for. At the moment, however, I do know what I want and a flea market would be a great avenue for finding… Continue

I would like to post links to my eBay items but am not sure that's acceptable under the rules. Perhaps someone could clue… Continue

Few items intensify that nostalgic feeling quite like vintage Pyrex. Hard to say if it's the bold graphics, wonderful colors or memories of grandma serving green bean casserole but Pyrex is collected by many and loved by all. Regardless of what pattern or type of Pyrex you collect, collect it all and be reminded of the joy and comfort of being Back Home Again.

Glad you could drop in... 'This drink is on me'.

The Grunewald opened it's doors for business in 1893. The hotel over the years went through many changes and expansions. When in 1923 a group of New… Continue

I was too old for Barbie. By 1960, I was 12 years old and believe it, or not dating boys. Dolls were out of the question but.....I always secretly wanted her...or at least to live the life she seemed to be living. I married at 16 (1964) and thought I was living Barbie's life, but still had never held one in my hands. I saw the ads in magazines and saw the dolls in the stores.… Continue
