Antique and Vintage Disney

One of Amy and I's favorite pastime, is sifting through antique stores looking for that perfect vintage item. We each have different tastes so we are usually focused on what we personally like (me-Garden Ornaments like old rusty gates, anything French or Italian style) Her (Art Deco Barware, Porcelain Advertising Signs) ------

So imagine how happily surprised I was when she came looking for me in another antique booth to show me she had found a 1971 Life Magazine featuring the opening of Walt Disney World! It was in awesome shape, so we bought it and will get it framed up for the wall.

Here are the pages from the article inside:

I have some of the original Disneyland viewmaster reels somewhere out in the garage. Thank goodness my Mom never threw anything out!

I'm never lucky enough to find Disney memorabilia at garage sales or flea markets. sad

It didn't go we'll, I was out bid on this. Those automatic bids suck! How can you win if some one has their bids set to automatically bid more then you. Very I placed a bid, the other person bids 50 cents more with out them being on!

I "was " going to give this to scrappy , "Happy Birthday dear!"

I don't think that's right or fair - automatic bidding. Boo!
