I love treasure hunting especially in a new land outside of San Francisco. While in Santa Fe we got up early(ish) one morn to seek out hidden booty (not that kind!). The New Mexican daily newspaper is full of garage/estate sale listings and we were fortunate enough to be guided by an old hand estate saler. Here are some of the treasures that came home with us:
A record case plus records to go in it! (separate sales). The Fugs record came from a gal who used to date the drummer in the last 60s. She was happy to part with it for $2 saying, “he’s an a**hole.”
A new way to transport records!
This gem was a family heirloom from the 50s or 60s. It’s hard to see but the Golden Gate Bridge is present along with a trolley car maybe when they were used for transportation.
How to build a Yurt blue prints! These were in a “free” bin and the owner was excited that I took them. I failed to ask where they built a Yurt. Didn’t want to pry, I guess. I might not build this Yurt but it is a dream of mine to have a yurt somewhere. This film about wild horses in Mongolia confirmed my yurt feelings.
A Wrangler jean jacket! I have actually been looking for this jacket for some time now. Hard to find in San Francisco. The owner was hesitant to give it up because she’d had it since the 60’s. It’s well wore and has seen a lot, I’m sure. Clothes with stories.
78″s! 50 cents each. Great fonts, illustrations and music.
