Original hippie era rock poster from the Fall of 1971 held at UNH. I was there and can tell you this was the most bizarre combination ever. The jazz inspired Mahavishnu John McLaughlin who later said it was his worst concert experience ever, followed by the hard rock Blue Oyster Cult leading to the head act, the Folk Rock Classic group - THE BYRDS. I still have this poster because when I said I liked it - an inebriated friend tore it off a telephone pole for me. Thanks Patty!

Beanie Green's original 1960s San Francisco / Haight Ashbury Hippie Denim Jacket. As described by his friend: "He [Beanie] lived in San Francisco during the heyday of it all, and customized this jacket with various fabrics from the garment district. He was a very interesting, intellectual fellow, and had a very artistic outlook on life. It wasn't just a day to him, but a poetic moment." "Beanie" lived there from the mid to late 1960s. Hard to find a hippie jacket better than this!

This 1970 Counter Culture / Student Unrest hippie era artifact was found a few years ago still taped up in the basement of an estate clean-out in or near Cleveland Ohio. With the low production quality (only hand written "type"), it seems to be a limited run, hastily put together protest poster during the high emotion in the aftermath of the Kent State shooting aka massacre the day before...

Backside of these authentic Michigan Hippie jeans. It is interesting that the nonconformist hippie who created this masterpiece was supported by her Mom who was also a free spirit. Even used cloth supplied by the grandmother and great grandmother. She noted this was usually worn with an army jacket. During a 1971 anti-war protest, the students all piled into a U-Haul which created a dangerous situation as they couldn't keep all four wheels on the ground! These pants have seen a lot of…

Handmade late 1960s- early 7-s Hippie Peace Flag which was used at an estimated 50 anti-war protests by a protester who was arrested twice. It was also flown from the back of a motorcycle en route to national protests.

Saw on ebay this utterly bizarre relic of the late 1960s style. Made by UCTCI in Japan. Quite the Psychedelic Bank made out of a composition material I believe.

Rare 1960s VARI-VUE Flasher Pinback advertising the Jefferson Airplane album VOLUNTEERS in 1969. Nice piece, would like this one myself.

I acquired these Hippie Era Levis late in 2016 from the UK. The story is that the mother was on holiday (late 1960s) at the seashore -Morecambe, Lancashire UK - back in her youth where she stumbled upon these and bought them but apparently never or just lightly wore them. Must have been an extremely low local printing run but the front legs of these blow me away. Symbols, psychedelic fonts, "Love" & "Trip" verbiage and they are after all on genuine period Levis.
