Thrift-store Treasure

Knowing how much I LUUUUVS me some fine Judaica, my husband procured for me this awesome teapot/teacup combo at the Jewish thrift store today! OY! It's SO beautiful. My man -- he is *such* a great thrift-shopper! Our house is full of thrift-store/yard-sale treasures, thanks to his keen eye ... and willingness to shove aside the weak, feeble, elderly and/or infirm in order to procure stuff he wants. :-)

Yeah, but until he procures you a completely AWESOME "MULLETS RULE: Business in the Front, Party in the Back" shirt (thank you Deseret Industries), you don't know the TRUE pleasures of "thrifting". And let's not forget my MR. T shirt. NOT Mr. T-Shirt, but "I PITY THE FOOL", complete with Mr. T silk screening, and real, bona fide RUBBER JEWELRY! Not only do I get to ask people if they want to "touch my mullet", I get to ask them if they want to "touch my T"! Or at least his jewelry.

Okay, sorry about stealing the thunder away from the jewish coffee pot. Wait... first off, how can spell check not recognize Jewish. Ahh... it's the lower case letter. Sorry Jewish people, I didn't mean to come across as an anti-Semite. Geez... more troubles from spell check... not anymore. It was a capital letter issue, AGAIN.

Yeah, back to the pot. Just jealous. That's all. I'm just jealous. Just let me know if the hubby finds a Mormon coffee pot. Now, isn't THAT ironic (don't you think?)? I'd pay top dollar for that! Even 6 percent sales tax. That will be a dollar six, young man...

Careful, there, Zekester, trying to compete with my man on the thrift store/flea market scene. You have no idea who you're dealing with. The man has a sizable "Mr. T" collection all his own.

As for Mormon coffee paraphernalia, y'know what I would love to have? One of those t-shirts from the coffee shop in Salt Lake, the logo for which was coffee being poured into Moroni's horn. Now THAT was funny. I can't remember what that place was called... Find it for me, will ya? And go have your photo taken in front of it! Perhaps buy a shirt! (Altho I don't think they make the Moroni shirts anymore.)

I'm a little concerned that some of those Menorahs have only 7 candles unstead of the requisite 9. I don't know about you, but if you cut my Chanukah down to 6 days, I'll feel slighted.
