A blog of unusual finds

What exactly am I doing here?

I love stumbling upon quirky, small, vintage, previously-loved items at local thrift stores, goodwill shops, or my personal favorite, the guys who run estate sales and clean out homes when someone moves into a nursing home or…well, you get the idea.

These places are full of wacky, overlooked, off the screaming wall uniqueness, if you simply wipe off a bit of dirt or peer into that dusty corner of the shop up high.

I’ll add a bit of…who, what, where, as I go along, and feel free to jump on for the ride and comment with your own ideas of who owned it, what it was, etc.

it will be fun.

I promise.
