Such an incredible set of wall plaques.

I added this set to my list of favorite items at “Willis Wonderland”.

Jamming on the xylophone.

I love this statue and wish I could give more detail. I posted this statue here as it sits in the same corner as the above wall hangings.

Here she is, the queen of kitsch, Allee. Is that a short hair-do I see here? I can’t believe in taking these pics that the transistor radio did not end up being photographed by itself and slipped right by me. Oh the excitement of it all or maybe it was all the candy that I consumed while at “Willis Wonderland” that caused me to miss this little radio.

    The wall plaques are pretty classic. Actually not that rare though as I see them from time to time on eBay ( though rarely in a full set). The musicians are made out of hard plastic mounted on a wood base.

    The African bust is one that I found on eBay that’s an exact replica of what sat in my living room growing up.

    That’s not me in the photograph. It’s my mother in 1963 sitting with the bust as well as its mate that I’m eternally on the lookout for on eBay. The transistor radio on the shelf in front of the photo was my very first radio that I bought, I think in 1958, with my allowance money. It’s a little Sony and still plays perfectly. It’s what I listened to music on for at least 15 years so it’s very important to me as look where that all led! https://www.alleewillis.com/discography/index.htm
