I know I've talked about how I want a vintage Ouija board to put on top of the bookshelf in my bedroom - and I also know I've talked about how I can never justify keeping any that I find because they sell too well. (The vintage dealer's constant dilemma!)
Well, guess what?
Today I found one I'm keeping - my reasons might be a little nitpicky, but they work for me:
#1: - The planchette is missing its plastic insert:
#2: It was only 25 cents!! Here's the proof:
From what I can tell it is an original William Fuld board - the one that Parker Brothers used to create theirs by - from the 1950's or around there. It's HUGE - 15"x22" - definitely the largest I have seen yet, and making it that much more perfect for display!
Yes, I am happy. I'm in thrifting nirvana, actually.
