Within my family collection are various inscribed photos of famous (friends) people, written to my mother, Colleen Conte. Featured in this post is a photo from actor Dennis Cole and a photo of a Houdini movie poster and two books about and written by Tony Curtis, signed to Colleen. Also, among the items I’m offering on Etsy and Ebay is the actor Cornel Wilde’s Turquoise Bolo. Colleen had this bolo custom made by the Zuni tribe many years ago for Cornel. He wore it often as it became his trademark tie. Another one of a kind item is a Richard Conte signature block that he had made many decades ago. You can find detailed information about these items and people on their individual pages on Etsy and Ebay. My seller’s name on Etsy is KStone4U and my name on Ebay is Kris4Sale. The joy of memorabilia.

Richard Conte, my step-father was an artist in many respects including being a stylish colored crayon sketcher. In these unique and one of a kind instances pictured below, Richard created his own original art within the first blank pages of books about art published in the 1960’s. Unlike a framed work, you have to open the books to see the Richard Conte art work. This week I placed these vintage items for sale on Etsy.com in the collectibles category. The books also contain many beautiful illustrations.
