This week, my friend and business partner and all-around BFF Kari and I are planning to head up to Round Top for our twice-a-year buying trip. It's amazingly hard to get away for one whole day when you have kids, and this year it's even more complicated, given that both of my girls are sick. We're still hoping to make it happen, but in the meantime, I thought I would re-post from the spring, when we went on our April buying trip. Each time we go, we try to find the strangest item of the day -- I'm still haunted by the booth we stumbled onto last time. So, here for your viewing pleasure, a re-post from the archives. Hopefully, I'll be back soon with exciting new photos from this week's Round Top adventure! But who knows if it will top last April:
Friday, April 3, 2009Last weekend, Kari and I went on our spring buying trip to the fields of Warrenton. We had a great day, and actually brought home some nice finds. We always keep an eye out for "weirdest item of the day" -- and this year, there was no competition: the booth pictured above won hands down. It also won "creepiest item of the day," and "most inexplicable item of the day." I mean, severed doll heads on sticks? Really? Had Chloe been with me, she would've been scarred for life!
I snapped the pic and then we moved on, and quick. I didn't want the creepiness to rub off on me. Ick.
