Antiquing in Bangor.

.

* warning – photo of taxidermied deer to follow *

The search for vintage beer or whisky crates continues…

.

.

And it’s not going well. Crates abound, but none of them are alcohol related… so boo to that.

.

.

If these weren’t so expensive I might have grabbed them. Bound to be interesting reading.

And because you never know what you’ll find at antique stores?

.

.

A bag of ducks.

.

.

I’ve seen this type of taxidermy before and it always stupefies me. Did they only kill the front half?

.

.

By all means, feed them. And do it immediately… before they suck out your soul while you sleep.

**shivers**

I tried to talk the husband into buying this antique incubation table but he was having none of it. I know he won’t let me have chickens, but it would have been great for keeping hors d’oeuvres warm in the man cave.

.

.

I examined this booklet and found absolutely nothing new.

.

.

Hutch made of tree bark? Um… no. Lord Dudley would be climbing it on a daily basis.

.

.

I have no explanation for this whatsoever.

.

Braving the heat and the crowds for treasure.

.

Husband wanted to go to the annual giant yard sale at the Cumberland Fairgrounds this past Saturday and you know only the lure of cheap treasure would make him wait on this kind of line.

.

.

The gates opened at 9:00am. We were there at 9:01 and the line was already insane. This is just a fraction of it –

.

.

Naturally the heat and humidity came roaring back with a vengeance that day.

.

.

How hot was it?

.

.

Bald men wearing trash bag hats hot.

Was the treasure worth the long line and $10 per person entrance fee?

.

.

I didn’t think so.

.

.

But you know the husband had to fully examine each and every table.

.

.

We were there for nearly 4 hours. Me getting sweatier and crankier by the minute… him never failing to strike up a conversation with a fellow Marine.

.

.

In his hands? Some kind of haying tool and an antique wallpaper ruler.

.

.

And whatever this was.

Treasure?

.

.

You be the judge.

.

.

Zoolak?

This required some research. It certainly doesn’t sound tasty….

.

.

And though there were vintage crates galore, not one was man cave appropriate… so I just came home with a few more albums.
