Coffee, Tea, and the Human Body.

It’s been a pretty busy August so far. But I’ve managed to hit up a few thrift stores and found some unique treasures. I scored quite a few books and drawing pads. Gnabbed the late Frank McCourt’s “Angela’s Ashes” ($.99 CENTS!). I’ve seen that book at just about every used book store I’ve ever been to but never bothered until I heard he had recently passed away and heard a sound byte of him reading a chapter from it on MPR. I don’t read a ton of non-fiction but this one is sure to be a tear-jerkin doozy.

ALWAYS BUY anatomy science posters from the 80’s ($3.99 for the set of 16), these are the rules folks, how awesome are those?!  I also found a couple of vintage mugs ($.99 each) and another set of vintage stackable coffee + tea kitchen tins ($1.99), so beautiful. The tins and mugs will be posted to my Etsy page. I also snagged a set of old vinyl letters ($.95). They look like Trade Gothic narrow, an oldie-but-goodie for sure. In the graphic design realm I dug up some more 3M transparencies ($.49) for my buddy Joseph over at Overproof.

To end I’d like to ask my readers if I should keep including the prices after each described item like I’ve done in the past or is it unnecessary? Please comment back or hit us up on Twitter @THINGSIFOUND.

An Outing with Andy the GlasBake Guru.


I warned you about the video stuff. Here’s another video post showcasing Andy “Kiek” Kiekhafer’s growing GlasBake mug collection. I’m pretty jealous of some of those. We also spotted some other funny mugs AND some ex-raver looking chick buying that godawful ceramic pony thing for “a friend of hers” – yea right lady. Pony up to the truth, we all know you were buying it for your massive ceramic pony collection.

And since it was opening fishing weekend here in lovely Minnesota, we thought a shot of this green tackle box which someone at some point scrawled “FISH TACKLE BOX” in permanent marker on would be fitting. More stuff coming right quick so keep checking back all this week.
