Set of 5 Rolling Stones key chains  from the 1994 Voodoo Lounge Tour . These are an officially licensed product and are much sought after .The plastic viewer when held up  to the light shows an image of the band live.

 Hell they are still in the original bag and are in mint condition.These puppy's are 2 inches long and the view screen is almost 1 square inch.A must for Stones fans or collectors of Rolling Stones memorabilia!

Vintage 1970's Heineken Bar Sign

 This is a very kool and hard to find  70's Heineken Bar On Draught  Sign. As you can see the sign works and is in near mint condition.The sign is striking and eye catching with it's bold and crisp colors.

 This puppy measures in at 19 x 13 x4 inches. Most of the Heineken sign made are not of this size and that adds to the rarity of this one. Made by the the Van Muching &Company out of New York  who were the importers of Heineken to North America from 1946 to 1994.For a great and informative read  on Heineken and  beer-marketing check out  Philip Van Munching's 1997 book "Beer Blast"
This is really a great piece  and not just for a man cave!!
