Discovery Channel’s “Pop Nation” To Hit Austin

Lori from Austin’s excellent vintage store Room Service Vintage emailed this afternoon to let us know that the Discovery Channel show “Pop Nation” will be visiting the Austin Convention Center on Saturday, June 18th. From the description on their site, the show sounds like an Antiques Road Show for post-1960s collectibles. So hit your attics and garages for the cereal boxes, Barbie dolls and Batman figurines if your interested in getting your items appraised and possibly receiving cash on the spot. An RSVP is required, and you can register here.

    Here’s a list of items they’re interested in (remember, no pre-1960 items):

  • TV Memorabilia: lunchboxes, props, photos, figures, posters, costumes, games, bobble heads
  • Toys: Creepy Crawlers, Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots, Barbie dolls, GI Joes, games, Matchbox cars
  • Movie Memorabilia: posters, props, autographs, actual costumes, bobble heads, scripts, action figures, games
  • Clothing/Jewelry: vintage clothing, costume jewelry, go-go boots, hot pants, miniskirts, leisure suits (no T-shirts)
  • Science/Tech/Military: trading cards, Gulf War memorabilia, pins, combat flags, uniforms, draft cards, computer games, Pong, telephones, calculators, telephones, microscopes
  • Sports and Leisure: uniforms, trading cards, game-used balls, bats, signed programs, baseball gloves, vintage tennis rackets (no home trophies)
  • Music: vintage albums, concert ticket stubs, posters, instruments, band figurines, stage-worn costumes, eight-track players
  • Around the House: appliances, dishes, tools, portable furniture, lamps, print collectibles, clocks

I’ve added it to if you want to set a reminder for yourself to attend.
