I Been Telling Ya That I've Kinda Cut Back On My Impulse Buying Lately...But I'm Still Out There Looking. These Three Got Tweeted But If You Don't Follow My Tweets Ya Mighta' Missed Them. Plus, Trifts Of Terror? I Mean, WTF? Status: Glad The Cleanup Wasn't MY Job!
This is what happens when children are left unattended at the Goodwill...or probably anywhere. I swear, I passed by this area five minutes before this appeared and while I find it deeply irritating that someone would do this (or let their kids do it)...I find it kinda beautiful in a purely artistic sense, and kinda puts me in the mind of the Pitch Drop Experiment.
In other news, I didn't buy this absolutely beautiful leather (yes, real and thick leather) and chrome
armchair in the style of Matteo Grassi. It was SO cheap too. Six Lousy Bucks @ the Goodwill in St.
Charles! It was SO hard to leave behind, I mean...who couldn't make a quick buck off this?! But
space is tight right now and I'm trying to be good. I'm only taking the big fish and releasing the little
Same day, different goodwill. This lovely chest of drawers had just been dropped on the floor at the
Harvester Goodwill. I had to pass it by several times before the staff actually put the price on the
tag. A mere $35 would have put this in the back of your whip...assuming your whip supported an
adequate boot. I'm not sure I would have picked it up myself since I'm not much for the plinth base,
but it sure was a pretty piece otherwise.
This pair of teak dining chairs were at the Chesterfield Goodwill on Olive...where the black dripping
thing was. As a matter of fact, one of the staff had cleaned up the mess, put it in a bowl and set it on
the chair facing away. I tried like the Dickens to ID these chairs but came up empty. If I'd have
found anything interesting out about these I would have gone ahead and dropped all 8 bucks on them
and brought them home but alas, I could find neither hide nor hair about them on the interwebs.
Please don't tell me they are priceless.
