I found Jitterbuzz a while back, and I have been trying to explore the site to give a decent description, but it has so much stuff I realized you just need to explore it yourself.  Its core is the swing dance and retro lifestyle in the Washington, D.C. area, but it covers a wide variety of swing era topics.  In my brief excursions through the site, I have found information including, but not limited to, transportation, jukeboxes, antique model airplanes, erector sets, collectibles, and a gallery of antique pencil sharpeners from the Early Office Museum.  It has plenty of stuff to fill your memory lane.
