2-Alaona ('o^ UpP er Dft* Moines Thursday, April IS, 1965 i^^B^^^^^^^^I^^^I^^^^^^I^^^B^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ FROM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your N By Dick Palmtr "TOPKAPI", Academy Award Winner, Here Tues. & Wednesday at Algona Theatre The Spencer show demonstrated the effect of hasty planning and inadequate prom Minn, which is contrary to the usual image of the sponsoring Chamber of Commerce. The many empty tables in the center section contrasted sharply with last year's full house. Ten day's notice just isn't enough, and that is w'.iat the majority of last year's patrons received. Several had already contracted for other shows and perhaps it is just as well as 1 was told that there was very little area publicity for the event. Show sponsors do have an obligation to advertise. A portion of the dealer entry fee is intended to cover just that. Visitors were definitely below former years, tho the heavy fog and uncertain Smug? Maybe he has a right to be! You could fool smug, too, if you know what he knows about beautifying the in- torior walls of your home. HP'S just painted his rooms with new one-coat DA-TEX, a vinyl latex wall paint unlike any you have ever used. Developed by Davis Paint Company and advertised in LIFE magazine, new DA-TEX is better because it's Densi-tued. Its heavier body makes it cling to your brush or roller. There's less drip. Less spatter. If you touch up later there are no telltale traces. Try new DA-TEX. There's a wide choice of decorator colors at Sailer's Davis Paint Store, Algona, Iowa. roads certainly curtailed travel Saturday night. Tho drivr homo \vitli virtually no visibility and the road under water at several points was one of tho worst I've undertaken in some time. - o - Antique dealers were represented by a mere half dozen, most having been there Irefore. I noted some Interesting and expensive Carnival patterns. The price still seems to be going up. 1 do believe that 1 could now sell my past purchases, especially the smokey, at a profit. The only piece of red had a price tag of $G and I felt that I could struggle along without it. Beecher Lane proudly inarched out with a full set of Vienna china and I was told that it was a bargain. Beecher would know one. I wonder how long It will be before Lane's Antiques joins Algona's business firms? 1 think this set was not, however, the Royal Vienna pattern. A set of 8 cups, saucers, plates and a tea pot remained in the dealer's stock at $150. Bob Orr, the tall man from Cherokee, was posting bills advertising the 5th annual gun, shell, coin and antique show April 24 25 at the new commimity.senter near the armory. Signs will point out the location off highway 59. Hours are 8 to 9 Sat. and 8 to 6 Sunday. The new location should help this show, as it has been very crowded in the past. - o - You can't anticipate the business patterns of these shows. Last year I had done virtually nothing by 5 p. m. Saturday and 75% of the total activity came Sunday afternoon. This year 60% of the total came be. fore 11:15 Saturday morning and Sunday accounted for most of the lookers and 10% of the sales. The concessions were for the benefit of the Spencerettes, a VFW sponsored drill learn and the availability of r-oof fee was greatly appreciated. Canadian material seemed in brisk demand, otherwise I noted no particular patterns. 1 was able to get those Indian arrow heads for my Italian correspondent from D. D. Davis of Barnett, Mo. He knew the area where they Peter Ustinov, a reluctant accomplice of a group of thieves, attrmpts to silence Aklm Tamiroff. whom he has caught eavesdropping In this scene from Jules Dassin's "Topkapi." In the color film which will open Tuesday at the Algona Theatre, the two are starred with Mellna Mcrcourl and Maximilian Scnell. were found, but told me the Indians did a lot of arrow trading, so it was difficult to identify the maker. He seems to handle most any type of order and had recently obtained a skull for one of his customers - just the thing for the person who has everything. His wife was not entirely sympathetic with this business venture and refused to permit this commercial article in the house. I hope my Italian friend doesn't develop a liking for old tones. It would almost be'worth it, however, just to see the faces of the customs examiners. - o - Some people just can't resist giving others the benefit of their pet theory on what is wrong with the country or the world in general. One gentleman handed me a letter to the editor (presumably I was the only one so honored, due to having currency on display) dealing with a somewhat vague attack on monetary policy and a frontal assault on the activities of the "international bankers". It seemed a combination of right and left economics. Maybe he wrote it. I didn't dare ask. At any rate, an academic discussion on international and domestic finance seemed hardly appropriate in the middle of a hobby show, so my response was terminal in w nature and, fortunately, was so "" received. I was tempted to" ask •-another : gentleman who disapproved of church participation at Selma whether he had cut "Onward Christian Soldiers" out of his hymn book yet, but restraint prevailed. - o For some reason, the Spencer club did not have a table for stamp display so I ended up having one of the few books with philatelic material. One antique dealer did, however, have some material including a fine assortment of commercial covers. My buying activities at the show were confined to him. I still get more real enjoymant from stamp and cover mixtures and lots than anything in the numismatic field.
