Nixon Charm Bracelet

Submitted by Dan: I found besides mom's "Six Crises" souvenir of the Nixon gubernatorial campaign, I found this really kind of fun/cute charm bracelet that was, it seems, a campaign fave. It features a Republican elephant, five red/white/blue "shields" each with a letter "N" "I" "X" "O" "N" on them, then a blue outline of the state with "California" on it, all dangling from a wrist chain. I took a REALLY BAD photo (my camera won't focus close enough alas, and its not a huge item) and of course it is "junk" jewelry and there's no real gold or anything, but it is kind of unique in its detail for a probably-not-that-mass-produced campaign memory. I'm attaching the really BAD photo so you can see what I'm talking about.

Nixon & Agnew Vintage Clocks

Submitted by Steve B.:
Attached are pictures of two clocks I purchased in the early part 1970 from a side street book/novelty store in New Hope, Pa. For years I've been trying to locate info, but seem to be running into a brick wall. It's as though none exist, other than the two I have. Still have the electric cord wrapped and never plugged in. Your assistance would be deeply appreciated. Thank you.
