ROCK & ROLL RUMMAGE SALE
The stuff on this page is one of a kind. It's been manufactured by a Paladin. It's been owned by a Paladin. Sometimes it's been owned by 2 Paladins. It's stuff that Dave, Thomas, & Brian bought at some thrift shop from 1978-Now. It's old stock recently uncovered in the Mega-Vaults of Time. Dave recently sold his California house, he's a full time Texan now! Turns out, he was sitting on some golden merch. Laura Jane has uncovered some gems in her attic, too! After it's safe to do so, you can drop by Thomas' Thunderbird Analog Recording Studio on South Freeman Street in Oceanside, to look at it, try it out, try it on, give it a solid sniff. This stuff is old. When it's gone it's gone. Some of it has bruises, bumps, splotches, tiny tears, stains, and patches that read "Luis", "LAX" or "Greg". Thomas has returned all electronic equipment to full hard working order. If you love The Paladins, Rock & Roll, and cool vintage items, check back on this page regularly!

Super rare find! These vintage black & gold patches were discovered hiding out in a box on a recent Paladins mining expedition in the back of the deep stock.

The Paladins enjoyed being sponsored by Miller Genuine Draft . Can you imagine? Sponsored by BEER~! MGD promoted both the band and the beer, and new fans of both were born, special concerts were played, records were made and beer was drunk. Only a few of these buttons remain from the partnership, from Dave's vault of treasures.

WOMAD (World of Music, Arts and Dance) is an international arts festival. The central aim of WOMAD is to celebrate the world's many forms of music, arts and dance. The Paladins played this festival in the UK in 1989 and this T-shirt was brought back to CA and well loved by Thomas for years. It's a blue mens Large cotton shirt, but Thomas has matured handsomely into a mens XL, so it's now up for grabs~! It's modeled on this page by Matt Yearsley... yowza~!
This pretty feminine pinafore apron is more ceremonial than practical - but what a beauty~! Large cabbage roses and other flowers adorn the large front pocket and bosom area of this sheer white vintage midcentury apron. Black trim with white zig zag bric a brac trim. Fabric content unknown, but it's stiff and very fancy. Some minor damage at the waist.

Comes with a free MGD Paladins pin & a secret mental high five.
When The Paladins'/ Hacienda Brothers Guitarist Dave Gonzalez broke his arm in a motorcycle accident in 2007, his legion of loyal rock & blues playin friends got together in support for a show at Anaheim HOB on Sept 13. This 100% cotton black concert T shirt is practically new & features the artist list on the back, and the Bone design on the front. It's a mens LARGE, and has been washed. The "Mystery" Raffle Prize of the night turned out to be a Torque Flight 727 Transmission, fully re-built. The guy that won it gave it to DG and he promptly put it in one of his cars. Long live Dave Gonzalez and his many important bones~! Thanks, pals.
