Check out these RARE GOLD HEADPHONES for this week’s RARE ITEM MONDAY!!

The first headphones weren’t even headphones. They were a single piece simply called an earpiece. The earpiece was the only way to listen to electrical signals before amplifiers were made or what we call today, a stereo.

In 1910 the first successful headphones were developed by Nathaniel Baldwin in his kitchen. They became wildly used by the US Navy.

It wasn’t until 1943 that the first stereo headphones were invented to listen to music by John C. Koss. Before that, headphones were only used by the military, phone operators and the like.

For this most lucky of Rare Item Mondays, we present to you this RARE LUCKY TUXEDO!!

In Irish folk lore leprechauns are cobblers, which is a person that makes and repairs shoes. You might think, “How do they fill those pots with gold from cobbling?” ¬†Unto you, we give these key details: leprechauns only make shoes for fairies, fairies love to dance, fairies dance all night every night, they wear out their shoes every night and need a new pair every day.

If you ever hear a tiny tap-tap-tapping it might just a leprechaun working on his tiny shoes!
