It has been a very busy weekend at Ms. Jackies Junque! I did my usual Saturday morning yard sale run. I then had to be across the bay at 1:00 p.m. for a funeral. In typical Jackie fashion, I squeaked in just in time. I had to be all the way in Tanner Williams at 4:00 p.m. for one of Jacob's graduation parties. Freak (that's what I call him...that or Ice Road Trucker depending on if he's wearing plaid) received over $500 in gifts at this party alone. I want to graduate again!
After the party I came home and worked on a couple of eBay auctions, which brings me to the point of this post.

I have been picking up Scrabble games when I would find them for .50 or 1.00. It didn't matter if they had all of the tiles because I knew I was going to make a huge lot and list them for crafting, jewelry purposes. Creative people are making all sorts of cute earrings and pendants out of the little scrabble tiles. Hopefully lot of 780 Scrabble tiles = big money! I'm hoping this lot will go for around $40-$50. You can click here to watch the progress of this auction:

Iwill have to admit that arranging the tiles for the photo was fun. Counting all of the tiles was not.

Barry White

We all know that Barry White is about getting your love did!
I ran across this cover while browsing the album section at America's Thrift.
Yes, that is a man's sparsely hairy chest.
Yes, that is a chain with Barry's picture in the little oval frame.
This album cover sent me into EWWWWW overload.
Why Barry? Why?
Traumitized as I was, I kept flipping through the albums.
Barry has earned redemption.
This album cover is a hot mess in a good way.
Just a couple of observations. You have Barry:
  • In his brown velveteen leisure suit and shirt with super fly collar
  • In front of a space age background that would do Star Wars proud (notice the groovy rocks -hence the album title I guess)
  • with his lady right next to him
  • with his pimp glass right at his fingertips (this is my favorite part)
I encourage to thrift as often as possible. There is no telling what you could be missing.
