Mel and I drove out to beautiful Clovis California this weekend to do some antiquing. We manged to find a couple of cool items. Here is what we stumbled across…
We found this fantastic little art deco clock that still works!
This is an awesome Seeburg satellite speaker. I plan to use this with our Seeburg Library Unit Jukebox. I am unsure if this one works or not but I will have to clean it up and check it out.
Next we managed to find a couple of Gay Fad state glasses. We had not planned on collecting these but I guess here we go! We found 4 states: Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi & Kansas. We already New Mexico. This means we only need to find 45 more! It’s all good, we are up for a challenge!
Mel and I found this clock in one of the antique stores. I don’t know what it is about panthers or leopards, but they are soo cool and are highly desired by collectors.
Mel found some fish as well. I can’t even tell you how many that makes in our bathroom. We had a chance to buy some fish Carlo’s but the seller fizzled out. Those would have been so great to pair with these fish.
Next we came across this really cool art deco picture frame. I will see what 1940′s or 1950′s Hollywood starlet I can put in it….maybe Doris Day or Barbara Stanwyck or Elizabeth Taylor.
We also found this great cast iron RCA Victor record holder display with Nipper! I think I have a Sinatra or Elvis record I can put in it, or maybe Pearl Bailey.
We picked this unusual Art Deco style magazine holder. I haven’t seen one like this yet. I plan on restoring it.
It was nice to find a few things in Clovis. The day was beautiful and we had a fantastic time checking out Clovis.
