Thrift Store Thursday: Epic Edition

During the past few weeks, my husband and I have been thrift shopping together a couple of times. Once was on our anniversary. We've found some truly epic things. Some of them we brought home ... some were just too awesome - or should that be awful? - to make the cut.

We start out with items for the home. 

First we have this lovely little pièce de résistance:

Who can pass up a limited edition collectible McDonalds "Ronald's Picnic" sericel? We can, that's who!

And then there's this slightly creepy, ever-winking doll complete with faded, yellowed, and slightly "scented" hand-crocheted outfit. A fabulous addition to any decor. Well, maybe not any decor. Definitely not our decor.


Decorative items just didn't work out for us, so we moved on to music. 

Here's the first gem we came across:


Who can resist Jimmy Buffet - especially the greatest hits cd with such legendary songs as Cheeseburger in Paradise, Volcano, Margaritaville, and my all-time non-child-appropriate favorite Why Don't We Get Drunk (and Screw)?

And then, there it was. A true classic! The B-52's Cosmic Thing. 

Sing it with me...
Glitter on the mattress
Glitter on the highway
Glitter on the front porch
Glitter on the hallway 
The Love Shack is a little old place where we can get together...

Now that we've gotten that out of our systems ... let's move on to the most epic of all cds, which can't possibly be properly appreciated without first viewing the commercial. 

Yes, friends, we found Freedom Rock! See...???


You'll never guess which of these fabulous cds has/have found a home in our music library. Well, I suppose you could hazard a guess in the comments section, so I won't ruin it for you here. I do know, whichever we now own, you're all jealous. 

So there you have it. Thrift shopping with my honey - a veritable treasure trove of epicicity.
