While driving home from an estate sale yesterday, I decided to take the streets home. As I cruised down Arrow Route in Upland, I spotted the Tiki Apartments! I immediately pulled over to snap a photo. I’ve seen them a few times before, but couldn’t remember exactly where they were located. Now I know! I […]
I couldn’t have asked for a prettier day for my favorite unofficial Disneyland meet-up, Rock Around The Park. Pompadours and pin-ups were everywhere. We met Ginger Watson, who was crowned Miss Viva Las Vegas 2014, made some new friends, hung out with old friends, and danced to Scot Bruce and his Elvis tribute show. We […]
Happy Halloween from your pals at Rydell Relics! My entire year revolves around this day, and although I’ve been super busy picking treasure and stocking the eBay store, I’m still enjoying the decorations, costumes, and general spookiness out there. After today, I could easily slip into a coma, wake up on New Years Eve, and […]

Hope you and yours have a swell day! Please don’t blow any fingers off, ok?
After leaving the housecoat hoarder sale, I followed some signs to a yard sale a few blocks away. Nice folks, but they didn’t have anything I needed. On the way out, I spotted this fella in their garden. It was cool seeing tiki randomly represented in an otherwise average setting. I didn’t bother asking is […]
Well, summer is most definitely here. This day was a scorcher, and with no AC in the Benzo, it was up to the scant breeze and a bottle of fizzy water to keep me cool. The photos I saw of this estate sale were definitely intriguing; lots to dig through, which is always fun, and […]
“It’s not every day you go to an estate sale in a barn!”, exclaimed the lady at the cash box, and she was right. The red wooden structure was indeed historic, and had a plaque out front to prove it. The main house was old and cool, but the sale took place in the barn. […]
