Close Encounters of the Third Kind vintage shirt- 5 Awesome

Close Encounters of the Third Kind vintage shirt- (eBay Link)

I could easily fill my house with vintage shirts I can’t wear. Even when I’m not a big fan, it’s a neat little time capsule.



Matchbox Fighting Furies Ghost of Captain Kidd figure (eBay Link)

Ladies and gents, one of the coolest action figures of the 1970s, and I don’t own one. Seriously, check out how cool this glow-in-the-dark Pirate Ghost figure is. 


Dracula Bank- 5 Awesome eBay

Hasty Dracula wind up bank (eBay Link)-

I’m not sure what the connection is between Dracula and a bank, but I don’t care; this looks fun. Saving is going to be easy now.


Little Lulu ironing board- 5 Awesome eBay this week


Little Lulu Ironing Board set (eBay Link)

Not ashamed to admit I’m a big fan of Little Lulu comics and enjoyed passing that love on to at least one of my kids. It’s rare to find merchandise, and I kind of think it’s funny that the one i did find is Lulu doing housework, just like she rarely did in comics!


Santa Clause Candy


Santa and Snowman Candy Head Display (eBay Link)

What I love about things like this is they were a “blink, and you’ll miss it” piece of childhood. Even if you didn’t see it back in the day, the energy this thing gives off is magical. Look at those cheap, hastily painted Santa heads, glorious.

    Well, it’s too obvious that the Dracula item is actually a blood bank.

    Yeah, thanks, I’ll show myself out.
