This Sunday was the Rose Bowl Flea Market. I was up at 7am and couldn't get back to sleep so I forced my husband awake and we went earlier than normal. I prefer that because it's less crowded, less carts and people stopping in the middle of the aisles for no reason. We did about two and a half hours of walking and only bought one thing.
This is a metal advertising tray for Orange Crush soda. Probably from the late 60's early 70's. Judging by the couple most likely early 70's. This was used in soda fountains, diners, restaurants etc to bring soda to the tables 'natch. It's rusted in some areas and some of the paint has flaked off but it's still pretty awesome.
Orange Crush has become a recent obsession of mine. Of course it's crazy collectible and goes for insane prices on ebay. I've always had champagne taste on a beer budget.
It's a fine line to walk when collecting stuff like this, one piece too many and it becomes a nostalgic 50's diner.
