Looks like it's an accidental horror haul this week! Exhausted after an almost no-sleep night I took it easy at the flea market, only investigating a smaller one near my mom's house with mom and my niece in tow. I resisted a lot of my usual suspects and came home with:
I REFUSE to drink anything from this creepy-ass clown mug, holy hell! Two ways to look at it- clearly it's supposed to be his eyes closed laughing with mirth revealing the make-up from lid to brown bone or something? Look at it another way and there are two eyes staring back at you. Huge, slitted, soulless. For sale if you're a clown lover! It's by Otagiri, Japan.
I've sold a set of two of this groovy little 1960s shelves so I couldn't resist another one. I won't mind it looking at me as I work in the meantime, I hung it right above my computer.
My mom found this doll for me at the flea market, not my usual style but I like the colors. Not sure where it's from, anyone have info on this piece?
These Made in Japan adorable dog salt and pepper shakers had to come with me. Love the mod starbust pattern and the original cork stoppers and intact...
The eyes though, no soul, they have no soul! They remind me Rosemary's quote at the end of Rosemary's Baby, "THE EYES...my god...what have you done to his EYES you MANIACS!!!" I need to glue new gemstone eyes (their original eyes) in there.
And then we have "sheets of death." My mom (she's been doing a lot of thrifting lately, you see) took a box of donations to the nearest Catholic Church thrift store. The nun was examining these sheets asking if they were "sheets of death." Mom helpfully explains that it's "Jack the Pumpkin King." The nun says nothing. My mom explains it's from a movie. "Oh the things kids will get into these days..." the nun trails off.
They're a bit too literal for me if that makes sense, even though Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my favorite movies of all time. They're for sale if anyone would like them, I have the entire set and it's super lovely.
E-mail me if you'd like to buy anything you see above, it's all for sale!
Did you find anything interesting this weekend? To tell of your thrifting/finding adventures in the comments.
