THRIFT STORE CAVALCADE

More pretty colors, bizarre ideas, and true wisdom from the thrifts. Better that Barnum's American Museum.

I would have totally checked out this book on "library day" back in grade school. Thrilling to the adventures of rock-em-sock-em paleontologists who spared no expense in finding the fabled coelacanth. Goosebumps. I was, and still am, a nerd.

My new catch phrase: dog plate. As in, Dude, that's so dog plate.

Vintage balls. Soooooo dog plate.

Game night, 1973 style. And you thought the seventies were all about boring coke snorting and wife swaps. Screw that, we're rocking the backgammon, mo-fo!

I smell a lawsuit. Which came first, the DC Cab or this LP? And if I'm not mistaken...

You can totally see Conway's Twitty. "Mr. T" indeed!

pretty. Looks like a crystal matrix table to me.

The bubonic plague never looked so jaunty. Why am I thinking Chuckles ?

Either it's the greatest most mind-blowing paradigm shifting book ever written or it isn't.

Wild horses in love. The painting. You can now die happy. Dog plate.

Some great finds. I love anything seventies.
Horses in love, now that is the ultimate thrift find.

Ha, ha, this post really made me laugh, thanks!

There are a select few out there with warped enough minds to notice things like Conway's Twitty or Horses in Love! And then there's a slightly larger few out there with warped enough minds to enjoy it! I always love your blog. Dog Plate!!

He he.. nice finds.. I love Conway Twitty and his MR T (not really, he's not that handsome but his music's great!) I need to go thrifting, it's been over a WEEK and a half!

DOG PLATE!!!

Why are there so many highly interested spectators at that backgammon snoozefest? It's not chess, people! Are they using (insert your 70's drug of choice) as pieces? That's my only guess.

Thanks for that close-up of Conway's itty bitty deformed twitty. Not very dogplate of you. It'll haunt my dreams for a while...or rub a hole in my religion.

Who knew the Black Death was so groovy? I miss the Seventies, everything was groovy then.

I would have been happy to NEVAH know Conway so intimately.

That close up of the Conway Twitty album had me cracking up. You are the funniest man in show business.

I wrote a book report on the "Search For a Living Fossil" when I was in elementary school. Loved the book, btw, and have been fascinated with celocanths ever since. The only other book report I remember writing was on a biography of Louie Braille.
