Gear Up For The Past

Hey, steampunk! We got your bag-o-gears right here, mostly the sort of thing that went into clocks and watches before quartz crystals and cell phones, when stuff was much cooler. But wait. Don't plan on building an actual machine with these gears--they're strictly decorative. No one will know that, though, when these industrial beauties are hanging from a chain around your neck. You get about (20) gears and flywheels in sizes ranging from 1/4" to maybe 1-1/4" in brass, bronze and gold tones.

Head For Hialeah

Our favorite rubber horse's head mask might unsettle the other folks on the bus, but don't let that stop you. Measures 17" long from genuine fake horse-hair mane to wide open nostrils and mouth, which are open so you can see through them. (You really have to see this on someone to appreciate it!) This colt's a sorrel/bay - OK, brown - with a white blaze and great big eyes. Looks a little like he's not real happy about going into the gate. Wear it with, yes, jockey shorts.

History Project

Unfortunately this grand assortment of flags from America's past came without explanatory text - or maybe that's fortunate. Might make a challenging research project for a young historian. Cloth flags, about 4" x 6" (sizes vary slightly), on 10-1/2" gold plastic staffs. They even come from a U.S. manufacturer! Not all are U.S. national flags, but as near as we can tell all are part of American history. You'll get a shipment of (5) different flags. Wave on!

Four Inches Of Beer

Remember the Yard of Beer? Still big in Munich, it’s a three-foot tall hourglass-shaped schooner for big drinkers. This is a four-inch version of the same thing, a standard 1 oz shot glass that’s 4” tall x 1-3/16” at its widest. Cute, but we like it better as a tiny bud vase that’ll take approx 3/4 oz of water. You’ll surely find other uses for it, too, because you’re clever that way.
