I finally got out to the Alameda Flea Market over the weekend. I hadn't been out there in months. Nothing like good company, kitschy finds, and kettle corn by the bay! Besides, this blog has been seriously lacking in kitsch lately, and it's high time I did something about that.
THIS was the find of the day- the Official Cheetah Velour Ice Bucket! I'd been resisting buying an ice bucket forever. Sure, you can find one in any thrift store but I was looking for just the right one. This is it! Now every drink will taste just like being in the Jungle Room at Graceland.
I also got these sweet Nugget Sam AKA Last Chance Joe cocktail glasses for a buck each. The real Sam/Joe is 36 feet tall and lives in Sparks, NV. (Side note- if you click on that link, Roadside America also lists the Guns and Jewels of Elvis display as one of the 'Nearby Offbeat Places'. Yup, THAT'S ME!)
Hmm, what else? This cute planter (thrown in free with the ice bucket, I didn't even have to haggle)-
and this paint-by-number, perfect for the spare room.
If loving cheese is wrong, I don't want to be right.
What have you brought home lately?
