. . . and we're back

Seems like it's been forever, doesn't it?

If you'll recall, my last post mentioned checking my mid-century butt into the shop for some repair. I did so, and now have even more non original parts than I did before.

Now that I'm up and around Wonder Woman and I (well, mostly Wonder Woman) have been working on getting the thrift store open. Grand opening is scheduled for September 3rd, Labor Day.

We've been hitting the auction houses pretty hard, and have a fairly decent amount and mix of stuff so that we can appeal to a broad segment of the thrifter population.

There will also be a "Dave's Mid Century Stuff" section of the store where I'll be selling my excess.

I won't be posting every day for probably a month or so. Do keep an eye out for my multi-part post of "The Birth of a Thrift Store".

The blog for the thrift store is here Friends of Abandoned Animals Thrift Store

We'll be right back with . . . more stuff.


  1. So glad to have you back and sounding so chipper and busy! I can't wait to read your series about starting the store.

  2. Glad to see that you're back in (mostly) one piece, Dave!
