Forecast for Myrtle Beach Snow Globe: You’re In Dirty Water

Thrift Store Snow Globes! They are always perfect reminders of vacations – start off pretty, we buy into them, then we get home and slowly they change into something different. My suggestion: don’t buy a snow globe and just remember your vacation as it was.

Who? Hoo? What does the owl say?

Exactly how many ticks of the clock does it take to get to the reasoning behind making an owl clock? Perhaps it was a prized possession for a Twin Peaks fan, If not than Who?

Thrift Store: Dolls can make you laugh

Some toys just make you smile.

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.

Thrift Store Find: Banking on odd

Oh the Thrift Store treasures you can find. This beautifully detailed bank teaches us that belly buttons are actual buttons to be pressed and the bum is… wait, that’s coming across wrong. Let’s just say this bank allows one to store coins where the sun don’t shine.

Never buy used: things for your bum

Thrift Stores sell lots of wonderful items. You can get vintage t-shirts for next to nothing. As an original hipster (now reformed), I got to experience the thrill of vintage stores in NYC, before the chains started making clothes that looked vintage. Well… even with all the great things you can find thrifting, there are many, Many, MANY things you should never buy used. Allow me to present the used, in a box, but still used… Bum Pillow. Don’t buy it. But feel free to put it in your friend’s shopping cart when she isn’t looking.
