We often receive a variety of “pre-HD, pre-widescreen, pre-light-weight” televisions that we’re happy to offer at “non-crazy” prices. Historians tell me these implements are great for viewing “pre-HD, pre-rectangle, pre-3D, pre-I-don’t-need-to-see-the-newscaster’s-pores” DVDs and such. Photo represents a random sampling of the TVs we get in.
A few weeks ago we had several people asking if we had any carousel slide trays in stock, and we didn’t. Now, of course, we have a bonanza of them, inclusive of their respective central locks to hold slides in place. This is a perfect example of the ever-changing nature of the surplus warehouse—if you don’t see what you’re looking for one week it may very well show up the next week! Back in the day, people used to bore their neighbors silly with slide shows of their trips to the Grand Canyon. I’m certain the Brady Bunch did this.
We’ve got several of these new-in-box 25’ coiled phone cords. Kids: back in the day, everyone’s cell phones were permanently attached to walls or table units with these things, so the longer the cord you had the more you could move around the house while yakking on the phone. Now, these also make lovely belts, wrist bangles, headbands … oh, the possibilities!
VHS movies for just .50 each? Yes, indeed! If your movie tastes lean toward titles that begin with letters A – P, we’ve got you covered (the library will be surplussing titles O – Z later—it’s a lot to surplus, as you can see). Everything from Monty Python to National Geographic, from blockbuster to obscure: Take a gander at some of these great titles available: Another Woman, Breathless, The Elephant Man, Eraserhead, The French Connection, Grand Hotel, Goodfellas, Gallipoli, Harold & Maude, House of Games (filmed in Seattle!), High Heels, Ed Wood’s Jailbait, Kronos, Law of Desire, My Beautiful Laundrette, The Man Who Fell to Earth, Malcolm X, ma vie en rose, Matewan, Mildred Pierce, Nashville, and Many more!
38175-7. It’s retro, it’s solid, and with just a light clean-up it will still look—amazingly—brand new. This light table is the fantastically-named “Futur-Matic” by Mayline and features a number of adjustment levels and a wood box frame. Measures 35” x 47” x approximately 3’H.
Talk about an old school slide projector, this attractive piece of industrial design appears to be made to show a single slide (it was the pre-carousel era). Comes with its own fitted case for when you want to show that one slide to people all over the place, or as far as your arms will allow.
