Although this holiday has come and gone, I still have this collectible Hello Kitty Pez dispenser in my inventory  and am now getting  a chance to try and sell it. This makes the second Pez dispenser I have come across and I am not a collector of these items. The first one I found is from Disney Pixar movie Cars 2 McQueen character Pez dispenser. Perhaps someday I will be a collector of Pez dispensers if I keep stumbling upon them. Funny thing though, I don't remembering hearing people talk about the candy or how good is the candy. Here are some more pictures of Hello Kitty Plush Easter Bunny Pez dispenser.

This is the bottom of the package and as you can see it is still well intact. There are no damages or rips and tears. It doesn't look like the package is sealed with a gluing agent just the sides are folded to keep everything in place.

Weekend grabs at an estate sale and 3 garage sales include Vintage Sesame Street Sign Language book

This weekend found me at an estate sale and 3 garage sales within beautiful Treasure Coast Florida. As you can see from the picture below is a sample of what was acquired. In this time around, I ended up getting more books than I usually do because of the estate sale I visited. Hopefully I can pass them on to someone that will find some value in them as well.

From the first garage sale I grabbed a Crowning Touch Collection Floral bell that was made in Japan and  a vintage Betty Crocker's cookbook New and Revised Edition copyright 1978, 1969 by General Mills. The book is in great condition and only looks like it just has a little shelf wear.

And from the next garage sale hunt, I found 2 unopened vintage Barbie toys and a great deal on five books. Now, I am not a Barbie fan nor a serious collector of them. But I do know that others seek out these timeless classics. Especially when they are still in the box. I am very surprised to find such a collectible Americana icon this old still in the package.

So my next venture took me to a very nice estate sale. I gawked over plenty of nice Rosenthal fine Chinaware. I even saw some vintage or possibly antique furniture.  Seems like there were vintage books for days but there is no way one could take them all. Plus books are a very hard re-sell unless you know someone that is looking for a particular edition.  I also passed by some collectible Smurf drinking glasses *sigh* should have inquired about those after doing some more research online. I headed on into the Library room of the estate sale which also contained vintage 8 MM movie projectors and 8 MM movie film editors. Some of them look as though they were missing some pieces so I kindly passed by them. Being that my early childhood was captured on 8 MM film I was really trying to hunt down a working projector. As I walked around the room I saw a boy playing with one of the projectors. I did not see this one and when he opened it up I though OMG that looks like a great working projector. Man I was wishing that he would leave and stop  "playing" with it. Then about 5 minutes later his dad came in and asked him what did he find? Just my luck, a father and son vintage 8 MM projector seeking team!! Oh, well! I told the dad that I was looking at the projector and it appeared to be a great find.  But I did end up with a nice working 8 MM film editor.  A Walz Movie Editor III made in Japan.

Disney Pixar movie Cars 2 McQueen Pez candy dispenser memorabilia

Unopened Pez Cars 2 McQueen candy dispenser

This is an unopened collectible Pez candy with dispenser featuring the character McQueen from Disney/Pixar animated movie Cars 2.  I will admit that I have not ever had a the Pez candy nor have I seen Cars 2 in its entirety. However, growing up as a child I do recall going to the grocery store with my mom and seeing these Pez candies while in the checkout line. I honestly don't recall which characters were in the boxes at that time. But I believe it had to be something generic as I was more focused on the candy itself. Seems like these days the candy is an afterthought and marketing the character within is priority.

This is the side view of the Pez package. As you can see it is unopened but does have a little shelf wear to it. More than likely was stacked next to something and not put away by itself. But no wear and nothing torn apart from it. There are not any water stains or signs of any liquid being spilled on it as well.

Sony Walkman Sports portable cassette tape and radio player

Sony Walkman Sports Portable Cassette Tape Player


No your eyes are not deceiving you. This is an "old school" Sony Walkman cassette tape and radio player. I found this nice piece while garage sale picking on the Treasure Coast last weekend. I still have a ton of cassette tapes but did not want to discard them without listening to what was recording on them. That is the ones without labels. And I did sell a cassette tape on eBay without verifying that the artist on the cover was the actual artist on the tape. Turns out that it had been recorded over with another group. I blogged about it in BDP was a dud. Whoopsie!

If you look closely at the above picture, you can see the white radio dial in view. But what you do not see is the radio label that includes the stations.(Insert Price is Right loser music here) I strictly wanted this just to listen to my old tapes anyway. I mean they stopped including them in newer cars, whodathunk!?

And as you can see this is the inside of the cassette tape player. All parts are working just as normal. I have listened to more than just the tapes that I have listed on my eBay listings.

Even the back of the player is in excellent condition with no scratches or scuff marks. The little belt clip holder is in place and sturdy and is still usable. So if you really want to get the throwback feeling and jog with your Sony Walkman then you are good to go. Although I doubt if people still jog with these devices today.
Anyway let me know if you have questions?

George Michael's solo album Faith on cassette tape

George Michael - Faith - Cassette Tape

George Michael - Faith Album on cassette tape
Any George Michael fans out there? Well don't be ashamed now! Everyone loved listening to old George back in the day. Especially when he was rocking with that group called Wham! Remember that is where he got his solo career started from with the release of Careless Whisper. Well anyway, good ole George Michael followed that up with Faith which was released in 1987. Wow or should I say Wham! it has been over 25 years since this cassette was issued. Doesn't that make it vintage material now? And to think I did not even buy this cassette. I actually won this off the Hot 105.1 FM (WHQT) radio station while attending Ely High School.

If you take a closer look at the picture right below the watermark, you will see where it reads "promotional only". Now I don't know if that makes the cassette tape worth anymore than face value but just giving you full knowledge of what you will purchase.
Now unfortunately, I cannot speak highly of the inlay as there are some type of stains on it. I have no idea what they are how they even got onto it. Nevertheless, this does not affect the functionality of this George Michael Faith cassette tape. In fact, take a close look at the pictures below and you will see I have kept this cassette in excellent condition. Plays like I just bought errr won it yesterday :).
