How to Clean a Hip Flask

As with most things, it is always a good idea to give your hip flask a clean. You might have used it recently, or it might have been stored, unused for a while. Either way, it might seem like a bit of a daunting task. It is, after all, something you intend to drink out of after you’ve given it a nice spruce up. Moreover, the opening of a silver flask can be quite tiny, making it very difficult to do a thorough job. As intimidating as it might seem, cleaning out your silver hip flask is…

Industrial Era Antique Decor Ideas

Industrial style decor guide

The Industrial Era began in 1760, spurred by the creation of three history-changing inventions: steam power, cotton & textile looms, and iron making tools. This time period inspires images of brushed metal, task lamps & sleek, productivity-focused designs. You can almost hear the lingering whistle of trains, the whirl of looms and the clanging of metal as the world entered into a new realm of possibility.

When the commercial spaces of factories were later…

Space Memorabilia collectables of the 50’s

Just thought I would share this info with everybody. eH

During  the 50’s – 60’s there was a space race to the moon.

Major companies saw this as a good opportunity to commemorate and cash in on the hype. Many major companies started to produce lines of furniture, toys, light fixture, comic book, still & mechanical rocket ship banks, movies, coins, dolls, even some Countries put out postage stamps and the list goes on. Some items you can still buy new today, so nostalgia…

Antique Carved Japanese Netsukes

Containers called "sagemono"—pouches, woven baskets, or beautifully crafted boxes called "inro"—were attached to the robes' sashes with cords and fasteners known as netsuke.…

Rail Road Date Nails

                                                          Haunted railway dated nails

At an automotive swap meet where everybody brings {supposedly} automotive related items for sale but, on occasion, you can find some unusual finds.

On this occasion I met a vendor with a wooden box filled with, well, I don’t know what they were. The vendor spotted me looking at these odd nails and came over and said,” do you know what they are?” Nope. He told me the story of when Great Western…

All the persons who bought them,… Continue

My Childrens' Toy Musk Ox was Sold to Another Thrift Store Client

I yesterday went to a thrift store that I used to visit several years ago. The store was very busy with clients on a Sunday and I spent a long time looking thru lots of collectibles.  The only things I found were a very clean used childrens' Musk Ox toy that had a baby Ox on top and a Yamaha Baroque Alto recorder.  The Musk Ox was large and I asked the cashier to hold it for me.  I later walked to the cashier and went to pay for both when I sadly found out that they'd sold my Musk Ox to…
