plain post war pre-ranch house, but some nice mod pieces, but i don't ebay furniture. didn't get much, but OOOOH, a nixon penny. in a 'collector's sleeve. it's a smidge bigger than 1/4 inch. adorable and getting smaller and smaller! and then a CARL zeidler for mayor coin. bronze i believe. other side says-if nominated let's eat march 15th 1940 victory dinner celebration.
he did become one of our SOCIALIST mayors. but drafted during WW2 and died overseas. later his brother frank was elected our last SOCIALIST mayor. frank passed away last year in his late 90's. outlived his pension. i wish it was a frank zeidler coin, because i remember him, but shit, CARL ZEIDLER?!? i will gladly pay $4 for that! man, this is cool. i will post a pic of the nixon penny toot sweet.
heh, i was looking at the stuff by the elderly lady who was running the sale. figured it must have been cause of stagflation. heh, georgee's penny will be a millimeter in comparison.
RANDOM CLEANING/EBAY POST
years ago i found an extremely nice tiki at an estate sale on a big hill on a very cold day in the WAWAtosa HIGHLANDS! any milwaukeeans go OOOH! now. i got an interesting assortment there. well, on the bottom it said milo, so i named the tiki milo. and i was very tempted to hoard, but no, i don't do tikis. i have ENOUGH collections. not even a collection of 1 tiki. so i put it on ebay and he went to the perfect home! a former asian hawaiian living in CA. he told me milo is actually a hawaiian wood. and then he sent me pics of milo sitting on his biggest tiki. gosh, i remember he said his brother got it and it had been carved by a prison inmate. i adore his other collection. milo is the little one in front.
i am getting rid of my dial up server and was going thru my saved mail. i shoulda blogged it ages ago.
