The Pawn Shop

I've been remiss in updating what's new at the pawn shop. Some things have come and gone very quickly, like an awesome mid-century modern bar set in orange and chrome we had for only a few days. On the same pick my boss got this amazing atomic sputnik light


I know. Unbelievable, right?! I think it takes like 40 light bulbs. Then there's this shelf of toys (I do love toys...and tins...)


and we have neon signs, which are always fun


tin paintings ( I like this one, probably because it has my favorite colors together)


the weird and tacky (I mean, hello? There are no pink flamingos in Maine!)


These are fun, too. They had flavored syrup in them and doubled as banks once the syrup was gone


And finally, some art, an abstract I happen to like



In other news revisions are going well and I finished Winter by Marissa Meyer. What a great series. I adored Winter. She might be my favorite.

As for the weather report, I heard this November might go down as the coldest on record here in Maine. The good news is I'm visiting my mum in Florida in two weeks and it's guaranteed to be warmer there than here.

  5. I promise Florida will be warmer.
    Flamingo in Maine? Only if he's a flamingo Popcicle.
    Galaxy Syrup - rather cool.

    1. Why anyone would make a tourist gift from Maine look like one from Florida I just don't know.

  7. It is a cornucopia of old fugliness :) I do love the ducks in the third photo, real birds scare me, but I do like them in figurines. Where is the Christmas decor in the shop?

  8. Working in a pawn shop must be pretty cool. (Especially if you get first dibs on some of the stuff coming in.)

    The coldest November on record? Yipes. That's gotta be some kinda COLD! We had a couple of winter-like days, but mostly it's still pleasant here. Supposed to get near seventy tomorrow. Have fun with your mom!

  9. Safe travels to you! What amazing finds. I can't help thinking of American Pickers, a show we've watched for more years than I can count. :) And congratulations on the revisions. Meanwhile, I appreciate the listing of blogs you follow and need to look up that feature for mine. Be well!

    1. People often ask if Americans pickers has been to our shop but I guess they don't go to retail locations.
