That's exactly the sort of thing I pick up as well, for my Gallery of Questionable Art. Anything vintage paint by number, velvet, kitschy, slightly off, etc.

We have all been there. Great feeling. Even better that you captured it with a pic. I love this.

I know right?! I thought it was fake the 1st time I saw it, or that paint design was actual paint stains. Pretty trippy

Monolo shoe horn



Polo bear silk scarf

Somehow really screwed up my back last Sunday; a week later and it's even worse.  Tried to hit some thrifts and estate sales today but after 3 stops it was taking me like 10 minutes to get in and out of the car so called it off, went to Waffle House, Walgreens to buy some Icy Hot, beer, and a heating pad, then home.  Got some Zanaflex I'm gonna pop a bit later (gifted from relative who can get me any Rx for free), but damn it's like middle age hit me alluva sudden or something.

 

So only a few things...

 

From last weekend - pink carnival glass (or maybe depression glass)?  I liked the shape, and was only $10.

 

 

Vintage souvenir pennants - five bucks for the lot.

 

 

 

 

 

Today:

 

BB for me...only "346" level but I'll buy any nice madras on the cheap to wear.

 

 

 

Couple Brioni's from an estate sale.  They had them tagged at $50 each...even the ones with frayed collars and cuffs.  Talked to the lady running the sale and got these two for $10.  

 

 

 

 

Vintage Masters adjustable bucket hat.

 

 

 

 

Vintage BB lasted shoes trees.

 

 

 

 

Vintage Las Vegas kitschy souvenir plate - another category I collect (vintage Vegas).  Imgurians represent!

You don't want this shit, man...believe me. I'd trade only having IHOP and Dennys right now. I mean, within reason - like, I'd have to drive 25 miles for a Waffle House...not get rid of them altogether.

Gw is the worst:

they took all the price tags (!) off of their inventory because, they say, "customers don't understand why two identical shirts are priced differently".

No shit.

So now I'm hopeful that the move to categorical pricing softens things up a bit. I find a mif claude montana leather jacket, wait in line, and of course the lady has zero clue what to charge me. There's no tag! She has no idea what a leather jacket now costs! Calls the manager over she goes "lemme see that jacket ooh that's nice... hmm... um... $34.99"

What?! If it's standard pricing what is there to look at? A leather jacket is a leather jacket, no? And now I've gotta pay to find out what the price is?!

No idea whether this is legal or not but it stinks so badly. How I wish everybody would simply donate to the sal army next door. Playing with my time and my emotions. Dammit.
