BACK TO THE FUTURE: 1955. A GREAT GIFT FOR SOMEONE WHO GRADUATED IN ENGINEERING PRIOR TO POCKET CALCULATORS (FIRST AVAILABLE IN EARLY 1970’s)?
This K&E Keuffel and Esser slide rule is a very rare find, what with its being in top condition, plus comes with an original manual, plus the leather carrying case which would fasten to a student’s belt, and even the classy green box it came in at the university store.

This particular model is a Dual Base Log Log Decitrig, which was the high end model suitable for a course in electrical engineering. A competitive model was made by Pickett.

This one pictured is available at the Angels Boutique in downtown Floyd VA for only $45. Check eBay for comparable instruments costing around $325.

Despite its age and obsolescence, many computations, even today, could be done faster than someone punching buttons on a scientific pocket calculator. Its accuracy was good enough to put a man on the moon. For example, it was good enough to calculate the center of gravity for mechanical parts that made up the Apollo space capsule – I saw it being done.

SUMMER SIDEWALK SALE AT ANGELS BOUTIQUE THIS SATURDAY JULY 20, WHERE WE ARE MAKING AVAILABLE ITEMS FOR YOU TO BE A TRENDSETTER AT YOUR NEXT PARTY OR RECEPTION. PLUS OFFERING A WIDE VARIETY OF LAMPS AND OTHER UNIQUE ITEMS FROM OUR VAST INVENTORY.

On Saturday, July 20, from 10:00 AM till 2:00 PM in front of Angels Boutique, next door to the Angels in the Attic store.

Trendsetters can use this innovative technique: Rather than the big expense of buying plastic dishes or renting ceramic dishes, the Angels Boutique Summer Sidewalk Sale will be featuring sets of dishes for sale at hugely reduced prices! (Some even are vintage, from England, Bavarian china, etc.).

 

By buying really top quality dishes sets from the Angels Boutique at our very low prices, you can tell each of your guests to take home a piece (or an entire place setting) as a fond reminder of your special event. (And all the while, you’ll be supporting those with needs in Floyd County, while also helping the environment!)

 

With price reductions on our already BIG BARGAIN prices, including something from every category they carry (e.g. upscale household accessories, like-new & name brand clothing, vintage & antique items, plus “Gifts that Give Twice”), you’re sure to find something you can’t live without…. all the while supporting Floyd’s major non-profit charitable services ministry.

 

P.S. The Angels’ Boutique is next door to the Angels in the Attic and across from Floyd’s Saturday Farmers’ Market, on Locust St, one block from the only traffic light in downtown Floyd Virginia. Come on over during or after the Farmer’s Market across the street.

We appreciate all the volunteers at Angels in the Attic, the Angels Boutique, and the Angels Furniture Store. But special thanks this week go to our extensive crew of volunteers who work at the Angels Donation Center. This is the hub of our stores, where donations are received, sorted, labeled, sorted and either boxed up for the future or transported to one of the store locations. It is an ongoing and never-ending task keeping up with the daily donations that goes on even while the stores are closed. So we say thank you to those behind-the-scenes volunteers who work hard at the Angels Donation Center.

ANTIQUE PENDULUM WALL CLOCK NOW AVAILABLE AT ANGELS BOUTIQUE
This clock is working. A quick lookup on the web showed its value may be $1000, but check for yourself. We have priced it at what we believe to be a great bargain at $350, and as with all Angels stores, the funds go for charitable purposes after expenses for utilities, maintenance etc.

In case the counter person has stepped out, you can always stroll next door to Angels in the Attic and ask one of them to show you this special clock.

You can check our website for the normal open hours of any of the stores operated by Angels. www.angelsintheattic.org
