This catalog is dedicated to the memory of Zane Shaffer. He was a pioneer in this field who recently left us. A lot of you have likely crossed paths with him. He was, arguably, the largest dealer in our type of merchandise on the East Coast. His family sold us a large lot of his inventory with the hope that his items will find good homes with people who appreciate them. You will see a lot of them over the next year or so, and we will mark them as such. Here is a note from his family "Whether he was gettin' his road warrior on traveling to antique markets in places like Shupp's Grove or buying/selling online, he enjoyed every minute of it. He held a very special place in his heart for the people, the places, and 'the old things'. It's really good to know that his collection will reach all the folks that had the same passion about them. We truly hope you enjoy them as much as he did."

#SP039 - Schlitz Menu Sheet with Phil Lyford Artwork
Vintage 10" tall unused paper menu sheet with a large colorful picture of a sophisticated couple dining and drinking Schlitz beer. It has the slogan "It's smart to drink Schlitz" and "The beer that made Milwaukee famous". Also says "In brown bottles". These are easy to date as those logos were only used in combination for a couple of years around 1934. They have a Phil Lyford signature. Phil Lyford was a very famous artist who did many paintings and illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post and Country Gentleman. He passed away around 1950. His paintings go for around 2 grand. These are quite a find.

They are an amazing find. They came from a brewery in Minnesota! During prohibition, the brewery turned to canning milk since they couldn't make beer any more. It was a large operation and they canned milk for companies all over the country. The companies would send them the labels and they would can the milk and send it back with the companies label on it. Incredibly, as soon as prohibition was over, they returned immediately to brewing beer and a ton of canning labels were left sitting in the basement all those years.

#ZZA148 - Complete Set of 16 Different Exhibit Supply Radio Arcade Cards For Single Women
Vintage complete set of 16 Exhibit Supply Radio Cards for Single Women. These are 1 1/2" tall and picture a guy on the front with a radio message for the woman receiving the card of the reverse. The ones pictured are typical. For example, "My own true love life is not worth living without you. Come to my arms my darling, my heart hungers for you". The machines that dispensed these for a penny were only made from 1923 - 1931. Exhibit Supply often continued to make cards for their machines that they would sell to the penny arcades that used them for awhile after they no longer made the machines. Gauging by the original brick these were wrapped in, I'd say these are likely an old version from the 1930/40s. The gentleman pictured are all very period 1920s guys. These are very rare and unusual. Complete sets are nearly impossible to find. These were in original bricks marked Exhibit Supply that were found in storage at a penny arcade up in the northeast. Very few collectors will have a complete set of these and we've got them priced right.

#ZZZ063 - Japp's True-to-Nature Toupees for Men Brochure with Prices
Vintage 7 1/2" tall Japp's 1920s Men's Wigs brochure with prices. These are incredible. Here's what they say "The directors in Hollywood Movie Studios brought it about. They insisted that the men who were partially bald must have a full head of hair so as to look youthful. So, these directors demanded a Toupee that could not be detected on screen." "Hence, the new Hollywood Toupee". "Baldness is a handicap to any man both from the standpoint of appearance and health. Toupees make one look 10 years younger and also prevent colds in the head." Japp's was a high end beauty care company that specialized in wigs and hair care products. They catered to wealthy clients. These were found in the building many years ago and were made during the roaring 20s right before the Great Depression. During that time period, people had lots of money to spend, and the prices for these wigs were really high for the time period. You sent them a sample of your hair and a paper drawing of your bald spot to get the color and size right. Hair-Lace Front Toupees were $40. That would be $513.07 in today's dollars!!!!!!!! The building is still here in downtown Cincinnati where these were found and has been converted to a bar that is all about the history of the building. They even have tours down there now. These are the only group of these brochures found.
