Nobody puts Big Baby in the corner – he prefers the beach
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.
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.
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.
