Y’all I stumbled upon some major thrift treasures at a Salvation Army while out whoring the other day…check this shiot:
That’s full-on marble atop that sassy round side table! Then I saw the price and was style-slain:
YES, biotch, you’re not seeing things…it cost $39.99 value damn dollars!!!
And just what do I spy here, but some kinda cheesy-yet-chic Americana cookie jar?:
And not to be outdone on the cheese-o-meter, this statue presented himself for consideration:
Well, shut the FU$& y’all, how to choose? Don’t…and buy them BOTH, they’re so cheap! Scandal! The cookie jar I’d leave ‘as-is’, but statue face I’d repaint…maybe even in matte white? Or a fun & unexpected poppy color? He’d be soooo cute on a salon-style gallery wall amongst the right mix of art…speaking of, somebody shat out all kinds of tremendous 80′s GIANT-ass paintings at this store, that had me choking:
Oh, but WAIT, there’s more!:
These yarn art lovelies gave me shivers:
Absolutely style-slapped! This was fun too:
What a rush, y’all!!! Happy whoring AND happy Valentines Day– hope it’s filled with all kinds of hotness?!?!
Well damn if NYC and vicinity hasn’t had it’s fair share of heinous weather and now Nemo is upon us!!! In fact, as I type this, there’s some sort of air strike sounding siren going off in the distance and I’m not quite sure what it’s alerting me to? Snow? Ice? Nuclear fallout? Since when does NYC use sirens in neighborhoods? Just more drama to add to an already high drama alert situation? YES! See, I wasn’t already amped up enough by all the media coverage on Nemo, so let’s sound some alarms, that probably haven’t been used since the 50′s, to heighten the scene even more! Speaking of, today’s Free Shiot Friday is a real doozie, check it:
Some recent thrift whoring expeditions have me seeing a recent trend: charity-based thrift stores that are way overpriced! WTF? I mean, I get it…these organizations raise funds based on sales, AND their missions are generally amazing, but it’s getting out of control. A lot of the prices are more in line with higher end antique shops, NOT thrift stores. A big culprit in this trend is Angel Street Thrift, located in Chelsea, Hot-n-Tight. I’m not sure which ‘angel’ is running the shop over there, Greedy? Delusional-ia? — but there’s some kind of madness happening regarding pricing, and it ain’t cute…on a recent visit, I was hard-pressed to find ANY items priced under $50! This folk art doll dresser? Yours for only $250! I WISH that was a typo…
It’s a ‘special sauce’ kinda Thrift Whore Thursday up in here y’all…we got us a theme song! YES! Y’all know your whorin’ always goes that much better when you got some kinda beat or rhythm to shake it to! Well, get ready to get your groove on to this sassy situation…it’s AMAZING!:
Y’all, I’m just beyond delighted to share that through a really twisted, yet divine, turn of events I am dusting off my make-up kit and getting back on the stage! YES! (Some of you Dazzlers may not know, but before all my decorating & styling hilarities, I used to be a full-time actor– it’s the reason I moved to NYC in the first place!) The show is a pop musical experience called, Totally Tubular Time Machine
Y’all, some FREE Shiot you don’t want– like this raging flu that had it’s way with me (and the rest of the planet it seems?!) for several days…it’s been next to impossible to get my dazzle on around here! But then this little lady saddled up to the curb, all woody and cute-like and brought me right back on the road to my former sassy self:
Y’all there’s very few things in life that compare to thrift whoring in the mountains of Tennessee!!! Prepare y’all-selves for this very special Tennessee Mountain Magic edition of Thrift Whore Thursday!!!
