Big Stuff

The ones that got away

Giant Maos, you will be mine!!!
Migrating duck boats in Shanghai

You would think I would have learned my lesson! Why did I discuss with my husband my plan to buy a kiddie ride that was for sale in our classifieds? Blah, blah, where are we going to put it? Blah, blah, why do we need a kiddie ride? Blah, blah, how will we get it back to the U.S.? Sadly, the kiddie ride suffered the same fate as the Big Boy I wanted to buy in New York, and the vintage photo booth I was bidding on in Omaha, and the swan boat sale in Chicago's Lincoln Park.
My next big purchase is going to be large sheets, I will use them to hide the giant Maos and duck boat.

LOL. He does have a point. However, I can understand your desire to have them.

I love this. Could we be twins separated at birth? I once wanted to buy parts of an old carousel I found at a flea market in Lyon. My girlfriends and I had driven there in my tiny Honda, so it was a no go.
I still wish I'd done it.
Great stuff!

Ha! Sheets are a great idea. And I'm so glad you're back in Blogland!

Also ... have you seen American Pickers on The History Channel? You can watch it online. You would love it ... about these two guys who hunt junk. It makes me happy.
