A respite from work blogs.
Spent the day out and about with my wife, prowling through antique shops. I snapped shots of some bits and pieces.
Spotted this beautiful framed Italian movie poster in a Mission antique shop.
The same place featured this amazing fifties era bar. The top slid open, revealing storage and a pop-up tray with drink holders. If only I had $350 on hand…
Almost worth buying for the cover alone.
This lonely, ripped EL BOMBO comic was sitting on a display case.
Awesome early seventies(?) chess game (“Smess”). Great graphics and cool pieces. Spotted in Westport.
You’ve had dreams about naked babies and swans and boats, right? This was evidently a thing once upon a time, because the same shop had another naked babies and swans painting in a different setting.
I love this primarily because someone once had it hanging on a wall in a place they lived.
Awesome title. Colorful cover.
Requisite geek content. Scotty and Sulu hanging out in Independence.
This sucker was about four feet tall. Some kind of whacked-out store display for shoes, I suppose. The drumming clown looks so sad, though…
Creepy shit. She’s gonna eat that dog, and he knows it.
This fine artist had many such fine paintings stacked in a corner of a fine antique shop in Waldo.

I like that bar.
That Tom Swift Jr book really takes me down memory lane. I think I read the entire series as a kid and it got me interested in science fiction later on.
