Thank God it's Friday!

It's Saturday evening (only Robinson Crusoe had everything done by Friday!) and past time for this week's thrift store shudders. Hold on to your hats...

We found these two potholders on different days--but at the same thrift store! I think that if they had both been hanging on the rack at the same time, life, as we know it, may have ended. To tell the truth, the first one is more strange than anything. The colors, the shape, the pattern--it's just weird! But that second one is godawful! If it had been mine, I would have used it immediately to take a hot casserole out of the oven. It could only be improved by melting.

Next up is a what were they thinking (w.w.t.t.?) item. Honestly, would you carry this as a purse, or even a coin purse? We took a picture of the opening just to prove it was a purse, a zippered bag, a ... ?

This next thing needs no introduction. I cannot conceive of a reason for its creation; please, please, someone provide a reasonable excuse for its existence:

And then we found another one!!!!! At a different thrift store no less, so they had to belong to different people. Really, two individuals would buy these? Oh, the humanity!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, that's enough carnage for one post. It could have been worse, someone dropped off their scary CLOWN collection--but that is really just too easy ;- )

Thanks for looking!

  1. I'm almost embarsassed to admit it, but my sister had one of these shell creatures. It was an owl that she bought on vacation. Can you honestly believe that someone would willing fork over hard-earned cash on something like this? She would have been better off buying the traditional crappy vacation t-shirt.
