Last Sunday TH and I drove to Wichita for the day. Most of which was spent in the obligatory trudging through Home Depot and Lowes. However, we did stop at my favorite little Antique Mall.
It is not little. It is huge. It goes on for acres and acres. You know the kind where there are booths of stuff everywhere. They ought to put a disclaimer on the word “Antique” because most of these “Antiques” were items circa. my childhood, teenage and college years. By that I am deeply offended.
My M.O. when shopping this place is to cruise rather swiftly down the aisles and when an item jumps up and grabs my attention…then stop. The first item that grabbed my eye was this vintage thread spool holder. It is perfect for my studio. I collect antique spools of thread and bobbins. I bought it right away.
I have been looking for a worktable with some character for my studio. I found this vintage ” high school chemistry table”. It must be close to “vintage” year of the 1974. I bought it. I just love all the marks, dents and scratches. It’s a slight homage to the fact that I barely passed Chemistry. That was during the vintage “slide rule” era. I could not figure out how to use one . Calculators were barely invented then…. Seriously.
I was instantly mesmerized by this item. My eyes were involuntarily glued to this “vintage” clock. My subconscious was willing that second hand to sweep faster around to the 12 and for the bell to ring. I did not buy this old school clock of my youth. I spent the best 12 years of my life staring at one. I was starting to get that familiar stomach ache caused by teenage angst. Moving on.
Now for the “piece de resistance” (that’s French).
Ladies and Gentlemen I give you……
“The Famous 3D Antique Bleach Blond Jesus”.
This is some serious vintage 3D. When you walk past the colors change and it moves a little. Somehow, in my Presbyterian upbringing, I missed Jesus’ surfer years. It was probably just a brief phase he went through. That must be why there are so few pictures of the sun-bleached Jesus. This picture could be worth a fortune! I’ll pass for now. Note to self….Will do some research on the Internet. Could have been an advertisement for “Sun In”?

P S My studio. I will have to go pick up the chemistry table next week. It would not fit in my Subaru.
