All I know is that Kevin Hart’s Hartbeat Productions purchased a 6 inch tall R2D2 robot from me. I hope to see it sitting on a shelf in the background of one of his movies, but I have no further details.
Once again, I had an eBay buyer that wanted one of my vintage items ASAP. I shipped my 55 year old Apolec reel-to-reel tape player with an overnight guarantee to Vancouver and it will be seen in Netflix’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events Season 2. Update 2018: Only the reels are shown near the end of the season. In the show, they are movie reels, but are in fact just audio reels.
I like to visit my local electronics recycling place to see if they have received any interesting vintage computers. On this day, I came across an early model of the Commodore Datasette Reader. That alone was a treasure for me, but this story is even more interesting. On the bottom of the device ‘BOSANQUET’ was written in marker. Bosanquet Central School was a local school that my father was teaching at in the 70’s and 80’s. That school had only one Commodore PET computer and my father would bring it home on weekends for me to play with it. I actually have a photo of me with that exact Datasette Reader 35 years ago. What are the odds of finding that device again after all this time?
When we cleaned out my Grandparents house many years back, I found some old magazines and newspapers. ‘They were just garbage’, so there were no arguments when I wanted to keep them. Flash forward a couple of decades and I listed some of them on Ebay. A buyer was interested in a couple of my Life Magazines, but needed them in Nashville within a couple of days. I was able to accommodate the buyer with a much faster shipping service. Those magazines became props in the CMT mini-series ‘Million Dollar Quartet’ which was renamed to ‘Sun Records’.
One day I received a phone call from Ebay stating that a very important client was attempting to make a purchase from my store but was being blocked because they were new. The person on the phone said that they were legitimate and I should make an exception in this case. It is quite unusual to talk to someone from Ebay and very unusual to receive a phone call like this. So I lifted the block to discover that the client was AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) and they needed some of the vintage but new computer mice that I had listed for some special technology project in Japan that were working on.
I sold a mint vintage iMac blueberry computer mouse. The buyer stated that he was doing something with Apple founder Steve Wozniak and wanted a perfect blueberry iMac mouse. True story? I’m not sure.
