Singing My New Hit Single "Alone in my Thriftciples"

The game plan was this...dinner at Longhorn...then off the Ohio Thrift store for 1/2 price thrifty goodness.

After a couple of days of tummy sickness afflicted my co-pilot, the plans changed a bit. I went out and decided to try to hit the trifecta, Salvation Army, Goodwill, and Ohio Thrift.

Salvation Army was closed, so I headed over to the Goodwill.


I was kinda of bummed out when I walked in. I remember when it first opened. It was kind of gritty...you had to dig for some deals, but you could usually find them. And I found some great deals (that's where I found the apple laptop, modem and zip drive for $10).

So, there was a bit of nostalgia. Unfortunately, the store I walked in to was nothing like the one I used to go to.

My disappointment was short-lived however, when I found this.
And I don't know if these are bears, pigs, or ewoks. Whatever they are, they're carolling.


And I have to honestly say that I don't know what this was doing in a goodwill. At first I thought it wa…

Update on the way!

Promises, Promises...I know. I suck. I said that I was going to post more as a new year's resolution. Ooops. It would appear that I lied (even though the philospher in me knows that I could technically wait until the end of the year to see if I posted more posts this year than the previous year, but that's not really the point, is it?) You want your thrift..and I want to give it to you. But not as much as I want to be warm and coccoon when it's all cold and shit outside. Sorry. It's the truth. But...fear not! This Wedsnesday is the Last Wednesday of the month...and you know what that means.....1/2 Priced Thrifty Goodness!!! And there WILL be a post...oh yes, there will be a post. I may or may not have a post up before then (not including this one). Until then...keep thrifting! -Todd

Flea Market Thrift

I went down to KY this weekend to show the film to other members of the family.

I'm not going in to any of that right now, but I have a special treat for you this Superbowl Sunday.

On Rte. 23 there is a flea market. And, as is tradition, my redneck roots just wouldn't let me pass without stopping.

And here we go:

This first pic isn't from the flea market, it's from my aunt's house.

I guess I didn't know they made synthetic spit....but...um...I guess it makes sense.


Can you spot the book that made me chuckle?
And it seems, no matter where I go, I can't get away from those f**king clowns!
I'm so mixed up. I was torn between wanting to see this thing talk...
And running away, screaming.
I was bummed that this thing didn't work (too many people pressing Dickie V's face, I guess). I wanted to see what it would be like to wake up to "IT'S AWESOME BABY!!"

Who needs a Sword? The average price of these are $15. If they weren't shite, I might be …
