Let’s get right into it!
Are you looking to put the word, TEA, EAT, or ATE in your kitchen? Then you’re in luck!
Someone else did this. I wish I knew this person.
Do you remember Boyds Bears?
I worked in a gift shop in high school (in, ahem, the 90s) and these were the RAGE. Baby gift? Boyds Bear. Mother’s Day? Boyds Bear. Retirement? There’s a Boyds Bear for that too.
There were a lot of records there today.
Children, this is called an 8-track. I don’t really know how it works either.
I’d never seen a keyboard for the visually impaired before.
What’s in the book section today?
If my kids were still small, this would be a lovely set. But they’re all too big for Winnie the Pooh.
This was in the kids section, but I saw the movie and I can tell you it’s not a kids book (or shouldn’t be)!
What’s cooking in the kitchen area?
This is an example of something priced way too high. This is really old, and $9 is more than 25% of the price of a new Oster blender.
But I will be taking home a fairly new pizza pan for $4.
Here’s a mug for the conjoined twins in your life.
It’s art time!
I’d never heard of this “Marten” fellow (it’s not Elliot H. Marten) but a quick google search revealed that he or she painted many, many cottages over the years. It’s not really my taste; too Thomas Kinkade-ish.
I’m not sure why, but this is a very unsettling still life.
Let’s move on to clothes and accessories.
Both of these Vera Bradley bags were in great shape.
There was a moment in fashion history when “Gunne Sax” dresses were hot. I don’t think the look quite works for me though.
On to the furniture!
I’m developing a real appreciation for waterfall-style vintage furniture.
I stood and stared at this for a little while trying to figure out what it was. I’m still not sure.
I was really digging this Frank Lloyd Wright inspired dining set.
Dedicated board game or card game players would love this table.
This is the most bizzare dresser I’ve seen outside of a Disney movie. It was fully functional, but made out of some sort of resin, even the back. Maybe it was part of a store display? It looks like it’s about to start singing.
The award for the most impractical loveseat goes to this silk one right here.
I don’t have the room or the moolah for these bookshelves, but if I had a great big house, with room for great big bookshelves, and a great big truck to get them there… I’d consider it.
So did I bring anything home?
I brought home the $4 Oneida pizza pan, because we needed one that has a solid bottom without “air bake” holes.
I also found these seemingly unused New Balance 520 runners. They’re a wee bit tight, but they’ll stretch a bit.
I think a $9 trip is pretty reasonable, don’t you? Thanks for coming along with me!
