I'm not much for words, but here's a few snaps of things I thought were noteworthy, but didn't necessarily want in my home. If you come across these items that I've passed up, feel free to pick them up and cherish them forever. Or at least keep it around to make your guests go, "zomgwtf?!1"
Begin with a few creepy clowns.
The first two images here were found at Columbus Farmer's Market in Columbus, NJ. The place is HUUUGE, mostly outdoors, and open year-round. There're vendors of first-hand merchandise, some pretty good food trucks and the like, but the real highlight (for Joe and I at least) is the flea market tables. Go check it out.
This guy doesn't necessarily look violent, but is still probably a child rapist.
He, on the other hand, will bludgeon you to a bubbling bloody mess with that fancy guitar of his. Just look how frightened the little knick-knack girl looks behind him.
I found this guy at 2nd Ave near the Franklin Mills Mall in NE Philly.
His head comes in rings that stack on a pole to teach children just exactly how a clown's head is formed, and to identify weak points, should they need to destroy a clown.
Moving from clowns to dolls and doll-type things:
This first item was found at the Impact Thrift Store in Montgomeryville, PA.
"This Drink & Wet Doll... ok, that's pretty normal. Like a Little Betty Wets-herself.
"...Is A Physically Correct Male"??!?!
You read correctly. This doll has a penis. That it utilizes to simulate urination. Why?!
The only thing worse than a doll with a penis that simulates urination is a doll with a penis that simulates urination that is also Archie Bunker's grandson.
All too creepy. Just look at him in there. Peering out at you. Just waiting to pee all over you and your loved ones.
So is this guy. Just can't wait to get the drawers off. NE Philly 2nd Ave, once again.
And lastly, for the fashionably inclined, a purple Peeps hat. It's only $290.
Have a good however-long-it-is-before-our-next-post, good readers. Hope you enjoyed my snaps. Keep on thrifting.
