News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - “The Good, The Bad & The Exploited” Coming Soon to New Jersey
Barnegat, NJ—Unshredded Nostalgia, New Jersey’s only metropolitan-style poster gallery, announces its next exhibit “The Good, The Bad & The Exploited.” It will open to the public on Saturday, May 21 and run thru August 15, 2005.
Movie posters from 1940 thru 1980 will be on display, with special emphasis on the 1970’s where exploitation and sexploitation were in vogue. Famous and infamous Hollywood stars including Clark Gable, Clint Eastwood, Pam Grier and John Holmes will be featured.
Previous exhibits have included Animation Art, the Foreign Film Poster as Art and numerous original movie, television and stage memorabilia spanning the past 60 years. All visitors will also be able to browse selected items from those acclaimed showings, as well as Unshredded Nostalgia’s inventory of over 250,000 rare, unique and unusual collectibles in the gallery and shop.
"I've established this gallery to afford the public a glimpse back into the past and to gain thoughtful insights as to eras gone by," Episale said. "Here, you can enjoy browsing, asking questions and learning from these works of art -- former everyday items that are now preserved for future generations to enjoy."
Episale opened Unshredded Nostalgia in Barnegat three years ago. Before that, he had shops in Stafford and originally in Ship Bottom, when he first arrived in 1976, and for many years in Pier 18 in Beach Haven. But the Barnegat shop, with 3,000 square feet and five rooms, gives him far more space to exhibit his vast collections, and gives visitors lots more to see and perhaps purchase for their own beginning collections.
At its present location, Unshredded Nostalgia offers an array of desirable and highly collectible 17th through 20th century antiques, collectibles, paper and advertising items -- including over 2,000 historical documents, thousands of photo archives depicting Hollywood celebrities, musicians of all genres, sports legends and world leaders. Other items include first edition books, animation art, classic magazines, legal and illegal casino memorabilia, antique jewelry, glassware and collector dolls.
Unshredded Nostalgia is located at 323 S. Main St., Route 9, Barnegat, NJ, 08005. Gallery hours are 10AM-5 PM seven days a week. For more information and directions call 1-800-872-9990 or log on to www.unshreddednostalgia.com.
