I was just going through a few items that I might talk about during Coffee Con, this Friday and Saturday. My presentation is Saturday the 11th, and I might do a brief show-and-tell.
How many of these objects do you recognize or know the story behind them?

I'll be sitting in the show room to on Saturday, so feel free to come by and see me from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM. I'll have a table with my book Tales of the Siren.
If you can't make it to Coffee Con, the Kindle version of the book will be on sale October 10th and 11th only. Use your Kindle or the Kindle app on your phone to download Tales of the Siren for 99 cents
This is one book that it's okay to get a big coffee spill on! ;)
Of course, if you're looking for books about Starbucks, I recommend that you buy Onward
by Howard Schultz, or The Starbucks Experience
by Joseph Michelli. Howard Schultz has a new book called For Love of Country, coming out in November. The Amazon.com link to it is in the side-bar of this blog.
So back to the original question, how many of those collectibles in the first photo above do you know, or know the story behind? :)
