Promo item I never saw before

Post by Laurelei » Sun Jul 23, 2017 1:21 pm

I can't get the link to work, but there is a pack of Dinner at the Ritz promo napkins on eBay for, wait for it, $130! That's a new one on me. How great those would've been for Martin's 5705 get together

Here's the link :
http://www.ebay.com/itm/CITY-BOY-Dinner ... 2483196942?

There are 6 pictures to this add.
The third picture shows the accompanying letter by a certain Harry S. Losk, "national sales manager".
Funny, or perhaps not so funny, detail is that Harry misspells the title of the single that comes with the napkins....

ps. great find Jo although $ 130 is a bit too much for a Christmas table decoration that can only be used once (assuming these are paper napkins...) :mrgreen:

Thanks for getting the link to copy. Yes, $130 is ludicrous but I thought it was a little oddity that was interesting. For that price it better come with a multi course meal. I'll have the vegetarian platter, please.

Thanks for sharing!

Now, now, after John Lennon signed my arm in 1975, I started washing it again...after a reasonable amount of time...well a sort of reasonable amount of time...well, perhaps I should start washing it. It's a bit overdue!

Once in the early 70's one of those Apollo capsules was touring around the world for some reason long lost in time. I don't even know the number, it might had been 11 though. Half ot town must have been down at the harbour waiting for the ferry from Copenhagen to arrive. I managed to get a good place and once it rolled by I managed to touch it with my right hand. I vowed to never wash that hand ever again because that thing has been to the moon and I have touched it although very briefly. For hygienal reasons that promise didn't last very long. But it is still a nice memory almost 50 years down the road.

Ha, this item has teased me enough, so I tried leaving a best offer bid. Only to realise I'm not permitted and not even able to contact the seller!
This guy should know better than neglecting the Scandinavian market for City Boy stuff! :evil:

I'll place the best offer for you, as your proxy if you like. How much do you want to offer?

I missed a trick there didn't I?
I should have had some made for the 5-7-0-5 get together!
TWELVE years ago!
I've moved house since then!
Thank you - I love you all!
