I don’t always remember to photograph the items that belong at the top of the Thrifting Pyramid, but when I do I never regret it.
Our first item up for consideration is this very sad-looking Spring Chicken. It made me think of this other find and it also made me wonder why America so thoroughly hates chickens born near the Vernal Equinox.
I think what sends this item over the edge into ridiculous-territory is not the fact that it’s meant to look gold-plated, but the fact that it says, “scotch tape dispenser” on the side, as if one might forget what that roll of scotch tape inside that gold ingot are doing on their desk.
I’m actually totally regretting not buying it now. I may have just accidentally fell in love with it. Damn.
This cat looked way weirder in person. The photo hardly does justice to the manic stare and the incredible girth.
Here we are, at the best find of the day. I should have just bought the damn thing, but I kept waffling back and forth and held off for reasons I can’t fathom now. Before I reveal the item, how many of you are familiar with this:
Because I think this item might owe Dr Seuss some royalties:
“You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch!”
