You would think we would be rolling in Friday Finds, after taking a week off for Easter, but I guess we found so many Easter Laid-an-Eggs, that we didn’t see a lot of other things, so this post will be short, and probably not so sweet.
I have to confess to having mixed feelings about this first item. While it is undeniably over the top and ridiculous, my dear grandmother used to have a passion for this huge Mexican glass, and wouldn’t have even thought about leaving this sitting on the shelf. It brings back memories of a favorite person, who is probably directly responsible for my passion for junking, so Thanks, Grandma, this pic is for you! [Deb here: I’m sorry to put this comment next to Kathy’s sweet story of her grandmother, but I need to point out the behavior of the giraffes in the left side of the background–get a room, you two!]
We were really not going to take the photo of the first two, but then the cute little frog put us over the top, and had us digging for the camera. There is no end to the stuff locals will make for tourists, and no limits on the amount tourists will bring home. Hey, how about a useful tariff for once?
I think it goes downhill from there. Time for some bad clocks:
So they may not be in order, but first is the courting (middle), then the wedding, and then pigging out so much your spouse doesn’t recognize you any more? They were all made of that nasty “stone-like resin” that I also think should have a HUGE import tax placed on it. Guess the best you can say for them, is that if you can stand to look at them, you would know what time it is. (Time to “accidentally” drop some clocks!)
Next up, some light reading material:
This next set is not so bad. I did buy the book, and I think I might have bought the table runner, if they didn’t think it was an antique, and priced it accordingly:
Now, for this last item, I am going to preface it by saying, NO, we didn’t buy it and we are not going to, so don’t ask. I know, “we’re fired”:
I went to my first garage sales of the season last week with the family, so it is coming!! Just think of all those wonderful bad things out there, just waiting for us to share with you. Till next week!
