Quaint Vintage American Prop House Closes Up Shop – Old N Country

We are sad to report today that the little shop full of eclectic and unique Middle-America antiques is closing it’s doors. Old N Country, a little shop that opened up in the old[er] Faux Library location on Vose St is selling off everything. And they are selling off everything quickly.

Old N Country Prop Shop, LLC
12007 Vose St,
Los Angeles, CA, 91605

This is a flash sale. They want it all out by today and tomorrow.

“How much?” you may be asking. Their current asking price is a little less than the 1 week rental price. That’s a steal.

Items in their inventory include a wide assortment of baskets, decorative accessories, typewriters, record players, suitcases, rocking chairs, cabinets, fabrics and quilts, all manner of cups, mugs, bowls with many unique sizes, sewing machines, and so much more. I am serious – they have a lot of items to check out.

Go by their location today – and if you can’t make it today swing by tomorrow. There are more items than you will know what to do with.

Faux Library Moves Again – Bigger and Better

At the beginning of last December I had a chance to check out the new Faux Library location and came away with only one response. It’s big. As in more than 90,000 square feet big.

Needless to say Marc Meyer, the founder and habitual collector of all things Faux Library, is excited (on top of still having and adding to the largest collection of fake books on both sides of the Mississippi). I can only assume Mandy is excited too! 😜

The move will be done over the coming months, planned from January – March. During this transition both their old location on the Case loop and their new location will be open at the same time.

Looking for a specific piece? Throw them a call to make sure you are headed to the right location.

Where is the new location, you ask?
11501 Hart St,
North Hollywood, CA, 91605

When you have a chance go congratulate Faux and check out their new space. Did I mention it was big

Faux Library address before this move was on the case loop:

7100 Case Avenue, N Hollywood, CA, 91605

Debbies Book CEO Subpoenaed by Mueller’s Team

Ruby Payne at a political fundraising event in March 2017.

Los Angeles – The FBI this week detained and questioned Ruby Payne, CEO of Debbies Book – a valuable resource for finding props, especially in the Greater Los Angeles area.

Payne issued a written statement saying she was detained by the FBI on Sunday after she arrived at a dog park on her way home from a walk. Federal investigators took her cell phone and purse, then questioned her about where to find sci-fi and futuristic items as well as western themed props. Debbies Book is known for helping people find these kinds of items and more for film and television. Ruby says she was then served a subpoena before being released to appear before Muellers nephews birthday event coordinators, which she is expected to do next month. The birthday party itself will occur in May.

“The questions got more detailed about the types of items they were looking for (which they were hoping would be free or at least cheap since the birthday was a non-union “low-budg” affair); what prop houses carry what items; whom I knew and how well – they had a long wishlist of items,” Payne said. “They seemed to then focus more attention on larger scale event rentals (of whom I have plenty of recommendations too); multiples of cabanas and steampunk themed event chairs. Then they brought up something about Russians, which I knew nothing about.”

She said she was asked specifically if she had visited all of the larger resources in her database, verifying the inventories of these so-called prop houses. She had, she said. Payne’s statement shines a spotlight into the workings of Mueller’s nephews birthday party, of which the public up until now knew very little about.

The birthday event council declined to comment.

Debbies Book has long been a resource for finding props and services for the film and television industries, not just for the nephews of special investigation teams formed by the FBI.

Happy Holidays from Debbies Book (2017)

From everyone over at Debbies Book, we wish you a happy holidays and a fantastic New Year!

The office will be closed down until January 2nd, at which point we will be hunkered down to make sure the 2018 book is ready for everyone.
