Readers Digest pays for a thrift trip across eastern Indiana (Status: Picasso strikes again)

Readers Digest called me up to see if I would drive to Indianapolis for a photo shoot regarding the Picasso, to appear in their year end "miraculous" theme issue. They would pay my gas for the drive to Indy and back to Columbus so I decided to have an epic "pick" along the historic National Road (Route 40) through the thrifts of eastern Indiana and western Ohio; I will post the highlights over the course of the next week.  Wheeeeee, driving and thrifting fun!

A golden burst of inspiration (Status: always confusing Ben Seibel and Ben Sherman or is it George Segal and Steven Segall)

So, as I have seen other more illustrious bloggers mention "It's been slim pickin's out in them thar thrifts".  It has been so bad that I have been driven into antique malls; indeed, that was where I found this great set of Raymor Universal "Golden Burst"dishes and serving piece  that was designed by Ben Seibel.
