I've been a thrifter for a long time. I have my favorite places, and I developed several different circuits to follow when I would go out. Now that I'm a thrift store owner I don't get a chance to get out to the other thrifts as much as I used to. In fact - hardly ever. So now I have to get my fix in other places. Auctions.
Our store is growing (slowly) and requires a couple hundred pounds of new stuff per week. To that end Wonder Woman and I hit at least 3 - 4 auctions a month if not more. Last Friday we hit the "nice stuff" auction place where we usually buy big pieces of decent furniture. I did not expect to find these guys there.
These guys are in fantastic shape. Some paint is missing here and there, but there's nary a chip on 'em. Two feet tall, and clean too. I'm not sure why I'm attracted to them, but without question they are keepers. I don't know much (nothing really) about Universal Statuary Corp. in Chicago but I'd love to know what you know. Have a look at the new members of the family.
Stay tuned for a post on some Rembrandt lamps I picked up at the same auction.
We'll be right back with . . . more stuff.
