Mel and I shot up to Paradise California and we found some great things. It was the perfect weather to be out and the people there are so friendly and helpful. Here are some of the things we picked up!
We are starting to get a great set of old signs and this one is a cool original from the 30's or 40's.
This will look great in the diner.
Love the clock/sign.....hate the drink. This was one of the first diet drinks to come out. Mel loves it because of the starbursts.
Here is a cool Pepsi thermometer. This one may be from the 60's or 70's.
Here is an original thermometer made sometime in the 40's or 50's. It is in great original shape!
We also stumbled across some really great old porcelain street signs. I know the white one is from S.F. but I am unsure where each of the blue ones are from. These will add a bit of coolness to the diner as well.
- We came across the old ad’s up in Paradise. I could just see these enticing customers in an old diner some where.
Then we found the best find of the day…..a National vending machine. This little guy gives out peppermint patties at 1 cent each. This must be an old machine. It is fully functional, it just needs some new mints.
Here it is with its fragile glass cylinders. I am surprised the glass has survived.
Here are the "complicated" instructions on how to use it. Ha ha..
The glass still has the cool original stenciling.
Another age appropriate item for the diner.
Here's how it looks with the signs up.
