DETAILS:

Owner Bernie Shine is an eclectic and eccentric collector, a treasure hunter of sorts. But he does not seek sunken ships, buried treasures, or archeological ruins. Rather he recovers GENUINE VINTAGE MEMORABILIA from dusty warehouses, old factories, and closed stores. He searches the world over for quantity finds from bygone eras, all in unused condition.

Shine Gallery is a collector’s paradise for bona fide period items mostly from the 1910s through the 1950s, all guaranteed to be AUTHENTIC & VINTAGE. Named by Los Angeles Magazine as Best of LA® 2009.

Bernie will be presenting an amusing look at the history of joyful junk, featuring vintage jokes, novelties, tricks, pranks, prizes, trinkets & treasures from the incredible inventory of Shine Gallery.

Please join us at Shine Gallery on Thursday, April 1, 2010, between 7 PM and 9:00 PM for this special meet and greet. Shine Gallery will donate 30% of gross sales made during this event to the Los Angeles Conservancy Modern Committee. It’s a FUN FUNDRAISER!

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE . . .they have a FREE gift for the first 50 guests, a mystery GRAB BAG containing a genuine vintage item from Shine Gallery! Lots of FUN and SURPRISES!


CONTEST – Scavenge for Wine at Farmer’s Market!!!

Hey you lushy HLAers of legal drinking age!!!! Guess what? We have THREE pairs of tickets to give away to this weekend’s Spring Wine Fest at Farmer’s Market. WOO HOO!!! (For more info, see flyer after the jump)

hardyboysAs usual we aren’t about to just HAND them to you though… you’ve gotta WORK for your vino, people! So here’s the deal… between now and the start of the Wine Fest (Saturday at 1pm sharp!), there’s a scavenger hunt goin’ down at Farmer’s Market. There will be four clues to solve. We will give you the first, and when you solve it, you will find the second… which will lead to the third… and… oh, you get the idea.
The first people to solve all four will win tickets to the event (a $60 value!). Only ONE pair of tickets per group please, because we want everyone to have a chance. I’m told if the tickets are already claimed when you solve the fourth clue you will *still* receive a consolation prize though, so EVERYBODY WINS!

Details: Eagle Rock’s groovy new Farmers Market opens up this Fathers’ Day… and if it’s anything like PD Markets’ other locations (I try to attend the Woodman Avenue Market when I can), it’s definitely worth checking out.

PD Markets has a unique feel and brings together farmers with artisans and live music. (This Sunday) we have The Bar Band playing 2 sets and of course it’s all Free. Plus we have a Rock Climbing wall and obstacle course for the kids or the kid in you.”
