I LOVE digging through antique/ junk stores. It's therapy to me. And yes, over the years, I have bought WAY too much stuff that I did not need. Of course, sometimes the BEST stuff is the stuff you don't really NEED, but I was perhaps not always selective enough, and a lot of that junk ended up at the Goodwill. Now I satisfy my collecting desires (for the most part) by taking photos of the stuff I don't buy, and I want to share them with you. I really want to call this series "Shit I didn't Buy". I can't think of any better name. But, in the interest of being less crass, I am just going to use the LABEL "Shit I didn't Buy". How's that for compromise?
Categories of junk I did not buy:
A> Junk I think is AWESOME, but I just don't have room for, I have too many of a similar thing, or I just don't want to spend the money. Many times I regret not buying things in this category.
B> Junk I think is cool, but for somebody else. Things I won't buy because they won't "go" in my house, and
C> WHAT. THE. F%!# - junk I can't believe somebody is trying to sell (empty ponds cold cream jars without lids), or things I cannot believe my eyes are seeing.
So...yeah. I went to some antique stores in Hartselle, AL on my way home from Huntsville last week, and here's some junk I didn't buy:
#3 - Giant llama planter. Now look, I like a cute planter as much as the next person. I even have a collection of vintage elephant planters. But this one was HUGE. And if he's supposed to be pulling that cart, WHERE/ HOW IS THE CART ATTACHED TO THE LLAMA? I'm just sayin'. Disturbing, people.
ooooh I have so many more things to share, but I'm going to try to pace myself. I think I'll have fun with this little series and perhaps it will keep me out of some trouble :)
