Hake’s Americana and Collectibles is a good friend of the site and they recently launched their latest auction, which is filled with amazing pop culture collectibles. This week’s challenge for the League…
You have very deep pockets but your shelves are bare. Go on a shopping spree at Hake’s to make your place a little more awesome.
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. But wait, there’s more! Hake’s has also kindly offered up an awesome incentive for the League–a random blog entry will be selected to receive $100 credit to spend at Hake’s! How great is that?! Now lift your pencils, and begin!
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 that anyone can get a FREE printed catalog for the auction here: http://www.hakes.com/subscription.asp?ItemNo=25248
I use these catalogs as reference books all the time–they’re so much fun to browse through!
Just for clarity’s sake, do we have to purchase items in order to post? Or can it be a virtual shopping spree, if you will?
Yikes! No, you don’t need to buy the items, just pretend you were given a blank check–what WOULD you buy? I should have been more clear.
We did a topic similar to this one last summer: https://www.coolandcollected.com/this-weeks-assignmen-from-the-league-blank-check/
Alrighty then, this should be a good one!
Why must you torment me! Lol, details to come in my post!
Finally doing something I should have done long ago.
Reis O'Brien says
It is done. And I feel I have chosen wisely.
Shawn Robare says
I’m going to go ahead and post this. It’s not technically live on the site, but this should still show up if you click on this direct link: http://brandedinthe80s.com/if-only-there-was-a-crush-station-playset
Holy Unreleased Action Figures Aquaman! Outrageous!
For your consideration:
Someone better hide my credit card after this one…..
Alex D. says
And now to stare despondently at my empty shelves…
Easy as pie!
Shawn Robare says
Not sure when it’ll go live, but I was a guest on the Geek Fallout Podcast last night and we pimped both the League and this week’s topic. It’ll be episode 14…
Excellent! Everyone go listen now!
Here is my post for the week:

Kevin Hellions says
Woo Hoo! I’m here before midnight! This was a ton of fun.
Classick Material says
I’m an altruistic sort, and methinks I found some wonderful parting gifts for any future visitors to STATELY CLASSICK MANOR.
What happen to my posts?? I was the first to post and now they are gone. What did I do??
