Pedal to the Metal…

Hello ladies and gents! Today after work, I decided I’d stop by the Silverdale Goodwill just for a look around. Lots of goodies at Goodwill today and quite a crowd taking advantage of the 50% off pink tags.

I walked past a nice couple who’d obviously had a busy day with two carts full of finds, but they were adding this lovely gem to their collection. Online, this pedal car is going for $237!!!

In the collectibles section of Goodwill, I found this autograph lovingly signed “To Carlos” from Alex Hyde-White from his role on Roger Corman’s version of the Fantastic Four. He also starred in the original Battlestar Galactica in 2 episodes as Cadet Bow. Now, if I had thought to buy it, I may have made a pretty penny as this autograph on Amazon is going for $75!!!

My father was able to attend the Seattle World’s Fair in 1962. I think back to all the souvenirs he could have nabbed when he was there, and this may have been something he would have grabbed. I didn’t grab this from the collectibles case either, but not for not wanting to! I’m sure I could have turned it around for a few more dimes as I was able to do a few searches on my iPhone and found a variety of (higher) prices. Most places did not have the original paper sleeve, so I wonder how much that raises the price? Anyone know, feel free to leave a comment.

And last but not least…why not bandage those booboos with the healing power of FISH!

I bet these would look great worn with a crocheted Twinkie Chan’s Sushi Scarf! (Note: I actually found the green for the seaweed at Silverdale Goodwill for $1.99!)

    I don’t know how you could have passed up that autograph, I would have totally pounced on it! Even unsigned that’s a true piece of dork history right there!
