Our friends Candy & John are clearing out their house, what used to be an old market and gas station, nestled on the windy Hessel Road in Sebastopol (Google Street View). This was the 2nd yard sale in an ongoing series. They’ve got a ton of stuff. Search “Hessel” on Craigslist for the next sale.
These are all vintage automobile insignias except for “Revolute Star.” Those are from an old blueline printer. John peeled’em off when he worked at a San Francisco printing press many moons ago. He said the printers were the size of three refrigerators and would permeate the building with the smell of ammonia, much like how old bars just reek of smoke and booze.
Did you know in Native American, Sonoma means “Valley of the Moon”?
