This week we’ve got a giant (animatronic!) nutcracker, a glass boot and some old toys. Let’s do this!
7-foot Animated Nutcracker in Glendale, CA
It’s December, which can only mean one thing—it’s time to get into the holiday spirit! This giant nutcracker isn’t terrifying at all and neither is the fact that he lights up and moves while he plays a trumpet! This will look cool in your front yard and on the plus side, it could scare the little ones into behaving! It really is in great condition if you’re looking to have the most jaw-dropping decoration ever! $1250
Vintage 1950’s Rocket Pogo Stick in Altadena, CA
Speaking of the holiday spirit, now is the best time to get all your holiday shopping done. Here’s a great gift…a vintage pogo stick that doesn’t have handles on it. Super fun and safe! It’s in great working condition but could definitely use a strip and repaint. Although it barely counts as a “usable” toy, this would look great mounted on a wall next to some other vintage goods. $18
Retro Styled “How To Keep Your Husband” Aprons in Keyport, NJ
Cute, real cute. I’m sure any woman would absolutely LOVE this retro-style apron as a gift! I bet they would find it hilarious. Anyway, if your goal for this holiday season is to have your wife leave you, then this is the perfect item for you. Wouldn’t you know it? The apron is functional as well. Oh goody! $15
Fenton Vaseline Glass Boot in New Smyrna Beach, FL
This boot glows in ultraviolet light! It is from the 1920’s and is in mint condition with no chips or cracks. More importantly, this boot glows in ultraviolet light. You could use this boot as a vase, a drinking glass or whatever else your little heart desires. $50
Vintage Graphic Cow Head Sign in Brooklyn, NY
Finally, we’ve got a true work of art. It was made sometime around the 1940’s and appears to be screen/stencil painted onto this masonite board. This vintage graphic cow head sign would look beautiful in any home. It’s in pretty good condition but has a little bit of damage. $75
