Things have finally sort of settled down at the new house I’ve nicknamed GPark, so with my daughter Caitlin, who is here from London in tow, I thought I would do a little thrifting. Sadly there was just no good junk for me to buy. That’s just how it goes sometimes. However there is never a shortage of weird, wild and just plain ugly at the thrift store! That’s one of the reasons I love it! This is the second in a regular feature. Here is the best of the worst!
- A pink cherub making out with the man on the moon candle. Yeah, I want one of those.
*sigh* This was a matching Packard Bell Television and Stereo set. Sadly someone bought the stereo and left the TV all by it’s lonesome.
A strange looking ceramic planter. Does that little girl resembleTory Spelling or what?
This is just wrong…on every level.
More political hatcheting. Why are the President dancing around like a bunch of schoolgirls? At least Lincoln looks horrified.
Oh be still my <3! Sonny Crocket on VHS. The perfect gift if it was 1989.
Jump suits and pompadoors only work if you’re Elvis.
Oh I always wanted to be a Pink Lady! Loved this jacket until……
I realized I would have to answer to the name Stephanie if I bought it.
Quite possibly the ugliest gold glitter shoes ever.
I think half the boys in my 7th grade junior high class had this coat.
Morning coffee in a last Supper mug? Of course.
At least if I had a little girl who liked stripper like dolls a’la brats, I would make sure she wore her bike helmet before going out.
I actually kind of liked these two duckie book ends, but they would have needs a couple layers of spray paint in …what else…emerald green!!
This was kind of cool. You don’t often see a player piano at a thrift store. And this one actually worked!
