1910s SHEET MUSIC. A popular song in its time written by hall of fame songwriters that were very prolific. Worn from decades and decades of use (about 100 years old). I had it framed for years as well as displaying it in my piano. Great art material too.
Old THEATER stuff including a theater program for Anthony Quinn in Zorba (lots of color photos). Performing art magazines and the 6th annual San Diego Film Festival.
1970 Look Magazine, GARBO on Cover. This magazine is a trippy time capsule. Cigarette ads everywhere (that was allowed back then). The advertising looks straight out of an episode of Mad Men. One ad looks like a very young Cheryl Tiegs. An old "A Diamond is Forever" ad. And the campy little ads that you used to see in magazines to send into a company for something (old school way to get your info). There is an article on Greta Garbo on her 65th birthday, another one on football with cool graphics, one on segregation that asks if most Americans secretly want it, and a poignant article on Ike & Tina Turner and how they are "just too much" (before we knew the rest of that story). This is something my grandmother saved. The cover is worn and written on, the back cover is missing. Large format magazine like Life Magazine used to be. Great snapshot of a time soon after the moon landing and before Watergate.

THERMOS PITCHERS $5 each
The light blue one is a CROWN CORNING THERMIQUE and holds 1 Qt.
The white pitcher is a HORMEL and holds a little more than 1Qt.
The dark blue one is a CROWN CORNING THERMIQUE. It holds 1 Quart. It has a nice spout for pouring.
I tested all of them to see how much they hold. I've used them many times over the years. The white one goes for around $40 and the blue one $20/$30. They are good to go, just need to clean up the outside. The light blue one has a few dings and some scotch tape that can be removed. The white one as you can see has writing on the top. This you can also remove if you want.
