Stumbled On This At A Yard Sale In Pa I Almost Crashed And Couldn’t Turn Around Fast Enough Lol, I Lucked Out It Fits Perfect!

My Sister And I Were Shopping At Our Local Thrift Store, And I Bought A Bag Of Random Gift Tags In Which I Found This Angel Drawn By My Dear Childhood Friend

One of my best friends in elementary school was a precious girl who had cystic fibrosis. After 7th grade she moved out of state, and I heard the next year that she had passed away. I was heart broken. After she moved, we lost touch and I didn’t get to say good bye. Years later, as an adult, my sister and I were shopping at our local thrift store, and I bought a bag of random gift tags in which I found this angel drawn by my dear childhood friend

It had her name and the city she’d moved to printed on the back. I was stunned and overwhelmed that it found it’s way to me. It will always be my best find

Something Unique And Technically Second- Hand I Thought This Group Would Enjoy. My Grandmother Made Me This Button Tree Pillow In 2001 (She Passed In 2003)

The letter reads: dear Jennifer, this is a special button tree. The top button on the left is from the army uniform that your great-grandfather (my father, Oscar Anderson) wore while he was fighting in WWI - 1918. The top button on the right is from the navy uniform that your grandfather wore while he was serving aboard the USS Sproston dd 577 (a destroyer) during WWII - 1944-45. The other buttons on the tree are from my mother’s button box. The tiny ones may have been on some of my baby clothes (which makes them real antiques)! In those days you saved the buttons from the clothing you were throwing away. Love, grandma

This Is My Favorite Yard Sale Find Ever! His Name Is Earl. I Got Him Five Or Six Years Ago At A Hoarders Yard Sale Along With Some Doc Martens And A Lava Lamp

He'd been hanging on my living room wall at my old place for years. That is, until my husband made me take him down because he didn't think potential buyers would appreciate my dark decorating style. Well, we sold the house and I'd been begging my husband to bring earl home for months, but he was one of the first things to be put into storage, so he was buried pretty deep. Well, he finally made it to our new house today and he's proudly hanging above the fireplace, where he'll stay for years to come. To answer some questions, Earl is a thick plastic, he has the artists name engraved on the side, I looked him up once, he's worth about $200, but I'd never dream of selling him. I do decorate him for parties and holidays, he's puked streamers, blown up balloons, worn santa hats and bunny ears among other things. I usually try to match him to whatever my headless mannequin (deidre) is wearing. He doesn't glow in the dark. He does have an Adam's apple, it just doesn't protrude very far. He's always reminded me of Maynard Mames Keanan more than flea though

I'm pretty sure that is a Kirpan, the Sikh religious blade which is one of "the Five K's" the religion commands all Sikhs adorn themselves with. the others being: Kesh (uncut hair), Kangha (a wooden comb for the hair), Kara (an iron bracelet), Kachera (100% cotton tieable undergarment (not an elastic one))
