Day #13 CED – Is Spending money Creative?


Well, It’s not even officially retreat day yet, just a fun day of Antique/Junk store shopping in Minnesota.

You have no idea how much willpower it took to not buy everything I saw. OMG! The “rusty stuff” stores back here are flippin’ AMAZIN’!

The first store I saw so many cute things (and at incredibly low prices!) but I kept my hands in my pocket and my money in my wallet. I figured I need to pace myself, right? Today was just a warm up for the Junk Bonanza…

Well, as soon as I pulled up to the second one, I knew I was in trouble. I mean, seriously, you might as well hand a baggie of crack to an addict…

Even the floor on the way in was amazing!

If I had a dollar for every time I said, “This is just so wrong…” I’d be rich!

The whole place was just filled with wonderful “stuff!”

I found some stamped metal initials and had to go through them to find just the right letters…

This is just a prelude to the big show – Now THAT’S scary!
