Antique Odd Fellows: Native American Peace Medal On IOOF Collar | Inherited Values

Antique Odd Fellows: Native American Peace Medal On IOOF Collar | Inherited Values | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

While one doesn’t normally think of Native Americans as Odd Fellows members, apparently it was a popular custom item in this area, anyway, for Native Americans to wear and display all honors.

Captured: America in Color from 1939-1943 – Plog Photo Blog

Captured: America in Color from 1939-1943 – Plog Photo Blog | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

"These images, by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations. The photographs are the property of the Library of Congress and were included in a 2006 exhibit Bound for Glory: America in Color."

Asil Note: It's amazing how color pulls these images into such sharp relief, making them more immediate and yet so clearly images of the (now) distant past.

Finding a 42-foot-long snake (fossil) - Boing Boing

Finding a 42-foot-long snake (fossil) - Boing Boing | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

This giant serpent looked something like a modern-day boa constrictor, but behaved more like today’s water-dwelling anaconda. It was a swamp denizen and a fearsome predator, able to eat any animal that caught its eye. The thickest part of its body would be nearly as high as a man’s waist. Scientists call it Titanoboa cerrejonensis.

MediaPost Publications The Apple Parallel Steve Jobs -Apple and Edwin Land Polaroid

MediaPost Publications The Apple Parallel Steve Jobs -Apple and Edwin Land Polaroid | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The Apple Parallel - 10/10/2012... by Barbara Lippert

 

"He was a college dropout, obsessed with product design and patenting pocket inventions. A visionary and perfectionist with sophisticated tastes, he lived to invent covetable products that would not only change the world, but were also beautiful to look at and easy to use. Thus, he built a tiny garage start-up into an international corporate giant that managed to revolutionize the art world and pop culture and still maintain a stock price in the stratosphere. At annual stockholder meetings, the focus was solely on him: he personally demonstrated the brand’s latest innovations on a dramatically lit stage, and the combination was magic. Oh, and he also ran great ads.

A eulogy for Steve Jobs on the first anniversary of his death?

Nope. Actually, I’m describing the larger-than-life inventor/entrepreneur Edwin Land (1910-1991), founder of Polaroid, who happened to be Steve Jobs’ hero, and on whom Jobs modeled much of his role at Apple..."

Hold on a minute! Did I just say “spies and lingerie”?!

 

Yes; yes I did.

Old items a new way of learning

Old items a new way of learning | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

It might seem that those people who drag their family heirlooms or garage sale "finds" from the basement to one of those antique appraisal shows are mainly looking to score a get-rich-quick payoff, hoping that their pieces are some sort of rare items of immense value to collectors. Or at the very least, that the items are worth enough to pull in some pocket cash by putting them up on eBay.

 

Not so, said Mark Moran, an antiques expert for more than 30 years.
