Thrift Store Fuquerie: The Beginning

One of my weird hobbies is going to thrift stores, antique stores, and flea markets and documenting the really weird, hilarious, horrible, or amazing things I find there. This is all Regretsy's fault. They got me started on this.


Collecting figurines is one thing, but collecting photos of figurines? That's something special right there.

A startled shell owl perches in front of his shell galleon.

This poor metal parrot had to get wooden feet prosthetics.

This coconut carving makes me feel vaguely uncomfortable in ways I can't quite pinpoint.

This is the most expensive thing I've ever seen in a Goodwill.

Who can justify a hundred bucks for something that doesn't even have a Hummel figurine?

Jeff Bridges apparently posed as Jesus at some point during his career.

These would look absolutely fabulous on an evening out, but they're a size too small.

This is from Hobby Lobby, but we all know how safe lubrication makes all the difference.

This is quite tasteful. It's just missing some glitter tears.
