It’s become somewhat of a regular feature here, which is great because I personally can’t think of a more fun activity than browsing auction catalogs filled with pop culture gems. This week’s assignment for the League of Extraordinary Bloggers…
You won the lottery and bought Tony Stark’s mansion, but the rec room could use a little help in the redecorating department after all the renovations. Lucky for you, Hake’s Americana & Collectibles just announced their latest auction. Check out the catalog and go on a fictional shopping spree to set up the ultimate cave of collectibles.
Hake’s has given us permission to reuse their photos and descriptions in our responses to this week’s League challenge, just be sure to link back to their auction. One blog entry will be selected to receive $100 credit to spend at Hake’s! Good luck everyone!
(Note; If you earned one of these Hake’s credits in the past, that does not prevent you from winning again!)
REMEMBER!: The League is always open to new members! Got a blog? Write a post in response to the weekly challenge, and you’ll be included. It’s that easy!
Once you put up a post on your site add a comment below with the URL. Next Monday, I will put up a post here on Cool & Collected with a list of all the contributing blogs. Once that list is posted, if you haven’t already done so, try to incorporate at least three of your fellow League members’ links (but more would be great!) into the article you wrote on your site.
By cross-posting like this, we will help each other out by sending new readers to each other’s sites. Have fun!
(Wondering what the heck this is all about? We’re recruiting for this loose-knit, rag tag crew! Here are the details for contributing to The League.)
I forgot to mention, if you’re on Twitter and announce your blog post, be sure to use @HakesAmericana — they’re pretty good about retweeting and posting on Facebook if they know about your post!

I was trying to take a week off to recover from October but I can never pass these up!

Robots, and MEGO, and PEZ, oh my!

Vintage Batman, Superman, Green Hornet and Lou Gehrig are what the Sexy Geek wants to add to the House Of Swag.
I do love those motorcycles: https://www.coolandcollected.com/revving-up-for-hakes-latest-auction/
I hope you guys don’t mind, but I took a slight deviation from Hake’s .. I couldn’t actually see anything that I would want! I know, I know, don’t shoot me!
I stayed within the parameters of shopping though!
p.s Congrats Brian on the Kickstarter funding!
You sir, are clearly nuts. 😉
Wayne family fortune, spent!

Toy liberation was the theme of my shopping spree. I found some fun things in boxes that needed to be opened: http://garagesaleofawesome.com/liberating-nostalgia-hakes-americana-collectibles/
Did I make it to the auction on time>
