Love Your Farmer is the theme at the "everything" White Rock Local Market (702 N. Buckner Blvd.) this Saturday. In addition to the normal bounty of local produce, crafts and various treats, there's a backyard chicken and urban bee-keeping clinic from 9 a.m. to noon and a class on how to process your ...

Note: The original post said the car was at Coppell High School. It was at Hebron High School in Carrollton. And yes, it was driven to school by a 15-year-old, per Jalopnik's update, which you'll find below. The car you see above is a Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale. It's rare (o ...

Hey everyone! Just wanted to give you a heads-up that the "Dark Knight Rises Chip" is up to 75 bucks on eBay. The seller points out the single, phenomenal chip originated from a Lays bag, and that he has "never seen one like it before." So, you'll probably want to "be the first to have food ... More >>
A couple of years back we virtually toured the Mercantile Bank Building as it looked following its 1958 redo, when Heritage Auctions made available 17 never-before-seen photos of R.L. Thornton's skyscraper taken by legendary Chicago-based architectural-photo firm Hedrich Blessing. Those photos, o ... More >>
Speaking of downtown Dallas ...Here's something I stumbled across on eBay this morning -- and, lucky you, three whole days remain to bid on this trio of photos, for which the opening bid's stuck at a whole $6.99. Says the California seller -- and the back of the pictures -- they date back to an 1 ... More >>
The customer isn't always right. Jack White has taken to message boards to defend his company against, well, his own fans.
One of three John Sirigo originals from the '39 Texas Centennial being sold on the eBayI'm at Fair Park this very moment -- c'mon, you know why. But speaking of, Friend of Unfair Park PeterK -- who clearly spends more time on eBay than should be allowed, God bless him -- has come across this magn ... More >>
A good, but clearly very cheap, Friend of Unfair Park who shares my affection for the old Statler Hilton hotel downtown sends word: An Arkansas eBay'er is looking to offload some coffee creamers and a sugar bowl that came out of that hotel way back when. Says the seller: "The two creamers are mar ... More >>
Says this top-rated eBay-er, the photo above comes from The Dallas Morning News newsroom -- dunno who it is, dunno when it was taken. I've asked Schutze, who started at the rival Dallas Times Herald 'round the time this appears to have been snapped, but he can't say for sure. All he knows is she ... More >>
eBay member: chicbizOnly $19.99 plus shipping, and, as the ad says, "They will not last long."Since becoming mayor less than two years ago, few have enjoyed the success of Tom Leppert. First a key victory in the Trinity River toll road campaign, then two more big wins last week after defeating two c ... More >>
Got $2,500? Like suprises? Under the plastic wrap and cardboard are 11,900 unsorted vinyl records.Got more than $2,500 to spend on a big, big surprise for yourself? The University of North Texas is selling an unsorted collection of more than 11,900 vinyl records. The only thing the listing fails to ... More >>
Over the weekend, a Friend of Unfair Park was griping about how the missus made him get rid of all his vinyl -- 'bout 500 classic titles, more or less, each of which went for a buck a pop at a garage sale till the encroaching closing time reduced the whole lot to 50-bucks-or-best-offer. Which brings ... More >>
Yet again, Friend of Unfair Park PeterK is kind enough to point our attention to a vintage Dallas photo selling for pennies on the dollar on eBay. This one's an especially action-packed shot taken on January 14, 1950, when the H.L. Green Department Store in the Wilson Building suffered a four-alarm ... More >>
Speaking of historic properties ... an entirely unrelated eBay search over the weekend turned up this gem: a very hard-to-find, hand-colored page from the American Architect and Building News, dating back to November 21, 1896, and yours for the low, low price of $49 plus shipping. What you're lookin ... More >>
Always a treat when Friend of Unfair Park PeterK deposits in the in-box a link to an eBay auction of a vintage Dallas photo. This morning's opening bid is eight bucks for a "1931 Photo Roadside Hamburger Barbecue Stand Dallas Tex." And, hunh, it looks so familiar too ...
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Rhett Miller's solo debut Mythologies, which I've still got somewhere -- it hides in a closet, no doubt in youthful shame. Doubt there'll be a double-disc deluxe reissue; oh, not if I can help it. Though, rather unbelievably, someone's selling their autographe ... More >>
With one day left for folks to bid on a power-nosh with T. Boone Pickens at Nick & Sam's, figured now might be a good time to check on how the auction's going to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Texas. Because when last we left it one week ago today, there was only one pre-approved take ... More >>
Friend of Unfair Park Peterk, who knows well my soft spot for Dallas antiquities, kindly sends this link to an eBay auction due to close in two days. What you see here's a 1924 paper boy convention outside the Adolphus Hotel -- or, as they were known back then, "Juvenile Districts Agents." (Ah ... More >>
The Wall Street Journal wonders why there's been just a single bid on the opportunity to power-lunch with T. Boone Pickens, who's selling an eat-and-greet at Nick and Sam's to raise dough for Big Brothers Big Sisters. The auction opened Monday, and thus far only "9***a" has made an offer -- for the ...

A Friend of Unfair Park sends us an eBay item being offered by a disgruntled former Dallas Cowboys "Super Fan": himself. (At least, I think it's a "himself." Has to be.) Says the want ad:You are bidding on behalf of your favorite NFL football team, to acquire a new Super Fan. After a 22 year career ... More >>
You'd best act now on this collectible comic, which came gratis with a Dallas Times Herald back in 1983 and is going for pennies on the pound for two more days. (This eBay'er wants $100, good God.) Though, come to think of it, the Texas Stadium Spidey's probably more appropriate, what with tomorrow ... More >>
If you've got more than $14 in your wallet (not me, not me), this eBay offering may be just the big-ticket item for the flashy nostalgist on your gift list: a pendant from Neiman-Marcus that, apparently, dates back to the 1970s. It's 14K, so they say, and so-so-so retro -- except for the price, whic ... More >>
Just one block down from Brian Foster's proposed $4-million eatery-"basement ultra lounge" on Main Street is Thoth Lounge, a, um, basement ultra lounge that, just so happens, can be yours for the low, low price of $500,000. Or: $625,000, if you're willing to pay now. But no rush: Bidding closes tomo ... More >>
