1970's "Turn On" Motorcross Dirtbiker 3-Ring Binder

Neat vintage 3 ring binder I found at a thrift store today. Looks to be from the 1970's. It is covered in great images of dirtbike riders, a guy and lady having a picknik and other random fun. Has no makers marks on it so I can't really find any more info on when it was made, but it does say "Turn On" down the spine.

Vintage Antelope Head Barometer

Stopped at a few yard sales this morning and found this old barometer. It is made from molded plastic with an antelope head on top. Says "Made in France" on the back. I can find similar ones online but with a deer head, not an antelope. Gotta find a place to hang it up inside the house.
UPDATE: Barometer is SOLD!!!

1987 Doggy Style - The Last Laugh 12" LP

Found this one at a thrift store today. It's supposed to be rare to find after doing a bit of research online. 1987 album of the band Doggie Style called "The Last Laugh". Skate-Punk music outta Cali, still has the original photo insert with lyrics.

Vintage Single Fin Surfboard

Found this old beast at a yard sale today. It is 6' 9" with lots of dings and open wounds. Looks like it has not seen the water in a long time. No brand logo or writting on it other than "D. Cook" near the leash plug. Could be home-made?

UPDATE: Board is SOLD!!!

Heywood Wakefield Style Mid Century Chairs

Another FREE craigslist find. The ad popped up late last night and I saw it this morning for FREE chairs. I went to see if they were still sitting in front of the dumpster where the poster said they would be and they were still there. Not sure yet of the maker since I can't find any stamps, only 1021(7?) written on the bottoms. I plan on giving them a complete make over.

Old Metal Tool Box and Vintage Thermos

Found these at a yard sale today. The tool box was painted blue sometime in the past and is missing a latch but it is still useful. The Thermos brand thermos is a neat old one. It has an aluminum screw on cup top and a real cork stopper that says "thermos" on it. I've never found one that had a cork, only seen rubber or plastic stoppers before. UPDATE: Tool box is sold!
