Tony Award Nominated…

Dolls only get jealous of other dolls Рthis is a fact I learned from the recluse lady that runs this fascinating doll blog. She says that if you give each doll equal attention then no doll feels left out. Hmm. She sounds a bit crazy.

Thrift Store peril or cool find?

Before you reach out to pick up something at an estate, garage or thrift store sale – be sure to accurately identify what you are reaching for. When in doubt just rustle the items nearby and check for movement. If an item looks dirty, it is dirty so proceed with caution and gloves OR shop with a friend who isn’t concerned with these things. But seriously, most sales are clean. This was a toy rat that gave me a good scare at first look.

Look at this clown

The Thrifter must become immune to the clown no matter how scary. Clowns may rule your nightmares… but they also rule the shelves of every thrift store. Build up your courage and don’t let them get you down – their intentions are good (usually).

Tiger Tiger Burning Bright

Siegfried and Roy of Las Vegas Tiger fame had a t-shirt? I must admit that I wanted to buy this shirt but for all the wrong reasons. It would be an ironic t-shirt, and sadly the irony might not be funny, just ultimately a bit sad. So I looked it over at the thrift store and left it for someone else to find. Who do I think bought it? Someone who likes tigers and has no idea who Siegfried and Roy are.

Never buy used: unusual underwear

I shouldn’t have to say this but someone is obviously not listening… at a thrift store, never buy used underwear. Why do I know people aren’t listening? Because the underwear is selling and being replaced by other used underwear. We need to work together to stop this viscous cycle. Please, think of the bacteria.

Happy Easter: Bunnies not included

Easter Bunny 2014

This store Easter display was so precious they wouldn’t consider selling it – and you don’t even have to ask as they put it right on the display basically ruining it’s cuteness.
