LOOKING FOR OFFICE SUPPLIES? We get quite a bit but man, oh man, did we get a donation today! Our Greentree location received a very generous donation of over 40 cases of Staples brand hanging 5 pocket wall sorters. These are the black mesh wire type and each case has 3 individual units. We are selling the cases at $9.99 each, as many as you would like to buy. The retail price of each is $42, so stock up now!
VINYL, VINYL, AND MORE VINYL! We got a really great infusion of vinyl records at our Greentree location this week, everything from more current records from groups like Iron & Wine to cool vintage country & western. We adore our vinyl customers so we always make a point to let you guys know when we get better than average items in, so… These are getting picked over fast guys and girls so pack up the gang and come take a look, ok? See you soon!
CALLING ALL MUSICIANS! We get instruments pretty often, but really cool music tech like this is so much fun to be able to offer our customers. Retailing for $899, the Musicpad Pro is quite simply the Kindle of sheet music. The unit is attached to the top of a standard music stand and allows musicians to load up digital sheet music and control the page flipping via a foot pedal. This frees up your hands and, you know, let’s your fellow musicians know you are that much cooler then they are. The unit is complete with foot pedal and carrying case, all you need is a standard music stand and you are ready to go. The entire package is available at our Greentree superstore for $174.99, now that’s a deal, right? Happy Saturday!
SOOOOOO COOL! This beautiful, bright, and well preserved 1970’s complete Sesame Street sheet set just arrived at our Greentree store and it is just FANTASTIC. The design appears to be pretty rare and the set itself is in really super condition. Considering this is some of the earliest merchandise that was issued under the Sesame Street license it’s quite a treat to see it first hand and in such pampered shape. We are making the 3 piece set available for a thrifty $18.99, and for collector’s we also still have the great little mixed lot of vintage character sheets we posted about recently available too! Have a great weekend out there Pittsburgh, don’t forget to stop and see us!
UMMMM, DIDN’T WE DISCUSS FRATERNAL ORDERS LAST WEEK? Well, this is not a masonic light bulb, it’s even COOLER! Just in at our Babcock Blvd location, this is an original 33rd level decree issued to a member of the Scottish Rite, an infamous branch of the Masonic order. This particular decree was issued in 1905 to a member born in 1852, yikes! Imagine turning 13 during the last reel of the civil war, not exactly uneventful, right? These were, and are are still given to a member who reaches the 33rd, or final level of ascension within the brotherhood. So basically, if you want to know all the really BIG secrets, you wanna hassle one of these cats, they are the big men on the Masonic campus. Plus, you know, they get all the really good, scary looking symbolism. As was mentioned in last week’s post, Masonic ephemera is very, very popular right now thanks to shows like “Oddities” and has become quite in demand in the last few years. A victorian/turn of the century item like this is almost as desirable as it is old. The frame is in less than stellar shape but the document would look fantastic in a new archival frame so we are offering it as-is, for $69.99 starting today. Stop down and check it out!
WHO YOU CALLIN’ DUMMY, DUMMY? Although the ventriloquist dummy is probably at the tail end of the “want” list for most kids these days, it used to be a Christmas morning staple. Another thing kids don’t want to see on christmas morning anymore are scary clowns. So what do you get when you combine the two? THIS GUY! Originally created by Alan Livingston, the character rights were purchased in the 50’s and a merchandising giant was born. Bozo was everywhere and was one of the truly great, incredibly successful TV tie-in lines of the early pop culture era. Bozo was so popular in fact, that in most major cities at least one TV station produced their own, regional Bozo shows complete with region appropriate Bozo. Much of the merchandise for this popular character still circulates but nice, big, bright pieces like this are still in demand. You too can creep out your friends and loved ones for only $29.99, this happy little guy is currently creepin’ out our staff at Greentree so please, somebody come buy him…quickly.

BIZARRE!!! Of all things to be heavily merchandised, freemasonry always seems like an odd choice. However, if it results in amazing oddities like this we are all for it. Circa 1950’s (some references point even to as early as the 40’s) this is an Edison style light bulb with a Masonic themed filament! Crazy! This mid-century curiosity is available, along with a small lamp for $19.99 at our Greentree location. As you can see it still works like a charm and really, who couldn’t use a Masonic themed light bulb? It’s a “no-brainer”!
WHO THE HECK IS ARNOLD “STRONG”??? Ohhhhh, right, you might know him better as “the Governator”, Mr. Schwarzenegger, or just plain Ahhhnold. Back before he was Hollywood elite, good ol’ Arnold was just a regular old Mr. Olympia, which frankly doesn’t pay all that well. So how does a traveling Hercules make a few extra bucks? By selling pamphlets out of the back of comic books of course! Cheap and disposable, these quick and dirty instruction sets normally sold for $.99 or so and a stamp but very few made it past the bedroom floor the adolescent purchasers inevitably tossed them on after a few half hearted workout sessions. This particular rarity was found between the pages of a considerably more respectable offering preserving Ahhhhnold’s heritage for another generation. Available at our Greentree location for $19.99, the instructions may be more than a little dated but the experience is priceless! Come take a look!
