More Thrift Store Finds



by Scott Heffernan:

I previously wrote about how Instagram has saved my marriage. I do a lot of thrift store shopping and want to buy every weird thing I see. My wife hates clutter and will probably divorce me if I bring home one more piece of junk priceless treasure. Taking pictures of these items and sharing them on Instagram has been the perfect compromise. (I still buy a modest amount of bric-a-brac.) Here are some of my latest finds.

Deceased Grandma angel wears socks and sandals, still needs glasses.

Got this while visiting family in Salt Lake. Forgot how thrifting in Utah is a whole different ball game.

Trio of terror. Haunting my dreams.

Angel bored at kid's soccer game.

…and possessed.

Shriner statue. Bought this one. Ended up being worth 100 bucks.

"Jesus Laughing" looks eerily similar to Bob Marley.

One of my favorite scores. Castle Grayskull and Snake Mountain. Couldn't resist.
