All good things, and all! After two solid days of thrifting across San Antonio, we were wearing down, and it felt a bit like even Texas Thrift was running out of steam, as well. Not too many gems at the Congress location, it was small, a little more like a neighborhood nonprofit second-hand store instead of a five-and-dime mall like the other locations. That being said, there were a few treasures. Take these lovely ladies (they’re cheap.)
Really, both of these I want to hold onto for some holiday or another. This fetching woman is straight out of a valentine’s day card…from Neptune.
Do not be intimidated by my beauty. Give yourself over to the full power of Valentine’s Day. Let it consume you, burn you up, so that the pure white light of romance shines gloriously from your eyes, in the Hallmark Moment to end all Hallmark Moments…forever.. It’s slightly better than chocolate.
And, well, she’s not quite a horror, not really, but definitely fabulous. But she needs to do something about that skin condition.
Goddess? Strangely androgyne divinity of the sun, or possibly the queen of overripe bananas? You be the judge. But she is clearly in charge of this shelf. There’s probably massive piles of precious moments figurines in broken shards on the floor, and no fewer than three “I Love You THIS Much” statues have met their demise on one dainty, gold-shod slipper. She’s just that awesome. Bobble-headed celebs? Bring it. Kissing ceramic angels? They’re going down.
As long as she can find her calamine lotion. That gilding itches.
Next week–back to your regularly scheduled crapola, as we return to Austin. Thank you, Maus, Tenar, and Josef for your patience and/or hospitality, and thank you Texas Thrift :)
