Vintage Risque Pin Up Calendars

These vintage advertising calendars hail from the days when companies didn’t have to worry about sexual harassment guidelines or otherwise weren’t concerned about offending women in the workplace (or what the wives at home might think). Back then, you could hang a pinup or even a nude photo on the company wall — today, we don’t even display this sort of thing on our shop walls. Instead, we keep them behind the counter. So if you are looking for vintage or antique risque items, stop in at the counter and ask to see these calenders (or any other mature pieces we might have for sale).

The one with the tastefully nude woman is compliments of Reams Cafe of Waterloo, Iowa. It’s dated 1960. There is some discoloration on the photo. (But the “white box” is an edit to remove any potential offense to our viewers.)

The one with the bikini-clad model is from Stone’s Auto Repair & Welding of Walcott, North Dakota. The calendar year is 1978.

Again, please stop by the store for more details and to see these vintage advertising calenders.

Record Day

On Saturday, the 19th of April, it’s going to be record day. For that day only, we will be having a sale on most of the records throughout the entire store. Most records could be anywhere from 15% to 35% off. If there’s some records you’ve been looking at but haven’t bought yet, Saturday would be the best day to buy them.

Antiques On Broadway Among Best Of The Best In Fargo-Moorhead Antique Shopping

Each year the High Plains Reader has it’s “Best of the Best” awards, covering the best bets in Fargo, Moorhead, and West Fargo — and Antiques On Broadway made the finals!

best antique shop in fargo-moorhead finalists

From the HPR itself:

The primary focus of categories relates to our niche: art, entertainment and nightlife. We have very little focus on corporate-type businesses or events. Instead, we hone in on who are the best artists and art spaces, the best bands and musicians, the best bars and venues, and other things like radio talk shows, celebrities, and, of course, our staple of food, restaurants and chefs.

Nominations will open Thursday, Feb. 20, and continue for three weeks. After that open nomination period, the contest re-opens March 12 with a handful of finalists listed for each of the 50 categories. Voting concludes April 1.

Award winners for 2014 will be kept secret until our Gathering of the Best Awards Celebration at the Plains Art Museum Wednesday night, April 16. A subsequent issue of the Reader will be a ‘keeper’ edition with focus on the many winners who indeed represent the best of the best here in the greater Fargo-Moorhead community.

We are super proud to be among the finalists for “Best Thrift / Antique Store” — dare we dream of being number one?!

If you haven’t voted already, you can (and should!) vote here, or vote on Facebook. (And if you vote for us, let us know on our Facebook page!)
