Thrift store scores
« on: January 24, 2009, 04:03:53 PM »
Today I scored a brand new pair of Hi Top red keds (look like Chuck Taylor) and two Willie Nelson albums. My wife got a nice canvas laundry hamper.

Anyone else fan of thrift stores or garage sale shopping?

Yeah mon, I love rootin around for all the little random treasures you can find (bought some brand new hi-tek boots for six bucks and a duke ellington record for a dollar last time) plus you can get cheap clothes and pants to cut up and sew little bags and things. Which reminds me, anybody need a bag sewn for their pipe or bong or whatevs or a board bag for travelling with trucks and wheels on the bottom for easy transportation, let me know. I need $ so bad!!  
say they ain't no gravity up there....mean we could get high and never come down....

i might get some pictures up later of my greater finds, but off the top of my head:

this cane that says 'jimmy carter for president' on the metal handle. from 1976. got it for a few bucks, looked it up and it sells for a few hundred. im gonna wait til he dies to sell it.

this crocheted picture of a unicorn shaking hands with some wood nymph. its bizarre

candid photo of a girl with cum dripping out of her mouth

painting of the pope with his arms in a 'raise the roof' position

this 'zelda: ocarina of time' tshirt. i think its the one you got if you preordered the game

'licensed to ill' on cassette

two vhs' of uncut footage of people getting killed. shits gnarly
