Watch out for the demon infested thrifts! (Status: Oh, Pat Robertson, you make me lol!)


Do you shop at thrift stores to save money? Or maybe because you think recycling clothes is good for the environment? Or maybe because you are the “most extreme manifestation of ironic living” and find sincerity unbearable? Either way, you might be getting more than you bargained for with your latest purchase. (Get it? Bargain. Like, discount shopping? OK.)
A concerned viewer wrote to Pat Robertson for advice on demons and thrift stores:
“I buy a lot of clothes and other items at Goodwill and other secondhand shops. Recently my mom told me that I need to pray over the items, bind familiar spirits, and bless the items before I bring them into the house. Is my mother correct? Can demons attach themselves to material items?”
Robertson’s answer?
 ”Can demonic spirits attach themselves to inanimate objects? The answer is yes. But I don’t think every sweater you get from Goodwill has demons in it. In a sense your mother is just being super cautious, so hey — it isn’t gonna hurt you any to rebuke any spirits that might attach themselves to those clothes.”

The collectable lamp whisperer strikes again! (Status: Finnish? I've hardly started!)

A short post until I finish editing my photos from the 2013 Cinci Modern show. 
I found this Lisa Johansson-Pape mushroom table lamp at the Salvation Army store in my lil' ol' hometown.

Selling at Scotts Antique Market this weekend (Status: busy, busy)

Hi all!  I am going to be selling at the Scotts Antique Market taking place this weekend at the state fairgrounds.  Here is a peek at my booth (first aisle to your right, then down 3 or 4 rows.  Look for the pillar numbered "42").

I told you it was pouring Russel Wright (Status: an ice blue rain)

I stumbled upon this lovely collection of 60 Russel Wright Iroquois Casual, ice blue pieces in a lovely consignment store about two hours west of Columbus.  I was in the town to hit an auction where there was a small collection of thirty Franciscan Starburst pieces (no serving pieces) but the auctioneer wasn't going to get to them for a number of hours so, I poked around in the downtown and... voila!

When it rains Russel Wright, it POURS Russel Wright (Status:I've got some more Russel Wright)

With-in the space of a week, I have had two major Russel Wright hauls- it's CRAZY!  This 50 piece lot of Ripe Apricot, Iroquois casual was plucked from an on-line estate sale.
