Here are a few more pieces of our July Alameda inventory. Lots of photos I am going to do several more posts next week.

I have no idea what the origin of this neon sign is. Bought it from a picker who says from military. Housing is aluminum, there is a button on back to switch it back and forth.

Vintage "Sputnik" lamp, Heavy wheeled base likely an add-on

Maui Hat Store cash wrap, rusty chair display pieces, redwood planters

Salesperson side

This is a cashwrap bound for new Lahaina hat store.
Customer side

Rusty stools found at Alameda a few months back were used for these display stands. I cut the bottom 12" off the legs and then built these shelves onto the frames. Pretty cool. Also going to Lahaina.
Planters made from remilled oldgrowth redwood beams. On wheels. My local salvage yard has a crew that picks through the loads dumped at the Berkeley Dump. They often bring back and sell redwood boards/beams from demolition of old houses. Usually full of nails and bolts but a little creative milling and here is result. Hard to believe this stuff was destined for the landfill. Constructed on a frame with stainless screws and galvanized nails these should last several decades.
