Over shadowed hometown thrift trip (Status: variety in the haul)

The week that the Picasso thing started blowin'-up, I went to my hometown to see my dad and I pulled in a small haul of choice goodies from the thrifts.

My new vintage book bag (Status: I wax poetic)

I'm a thrifting guy, but sometimes you have to go to other sources to find exactly what you are looking for; in this case I wanted a great beat-up,vintage leather book bag, that would hold my MacBook, with one or two generous outside pockets and a strap (pen loops would be a bonus).  I found almost exactly what I wanted in Austria (not Australia), on Etsy!  Meet my new book bag...

Picasso guy on Anderson Cooper Show (Status:Really, time should be up)

Here are a collection of links to the follow-up storys of my Picasso find (Really, this is the end of the “Picasso guy” saga)

Link to the Anderson Cooper Show.
There are two short clips that are excerpts from slightly longer pieces on the show.
Here is the follow up article from the Columbus Dispatch 
Two local television stations also shot interviews with me but they do not appear to have posted them yet.

NYC thrifting (Status: Bubba likes Danish ceramics)

New York was originally named "New Amsterdam" so I suppose it is only appropriate that I hauled in some Danish ceramics (plus a little metal owl sculpture).  Here is Bubba casting his regal, pirate cat gaze over my booty and declaring that it meets his standards.  Last plug: I'm on the Anderson Cooper Show Wednesday the 25th!

NYC next week (Status: Jet setting)

14:59 and holding...
I'll be in New York City next week; that's really all I can say at this time.
I promise to get back to posting cool thrift finds soon.

Home town Hey-Wake find (Status: A pair in the hand is worth on in the wild)

I found this pair of Heywood Wakefield 304 end tables in a furniture resale shop located in a small town near my home town.

Roll that time back a couple of minutes (Status:I thought it was all over)

This morning I had a phone call about doing an interview with a local radio station but then, around when the station was supposed to call back for the interview, Inside Edition called!  They are going to fly a reporter to Columbus tomorrow for an interview.
I have no idea what happened with the local radio station; I assume they called when I was on the phone with Inside Edition and so I missed my window.

00:15:01 (Status: Times up for Picasso guy)

This should be the last post related to my spurt of Picasso print notoriety.
Last Friday I was contacted by a producer for Good Morning America.  She wanted to get me on GMA this week but I found out today that the appearance will not happen.  The Easter week show had been completely booked  and there was no space.
The news cycle has now passed me by.
