On Thursday, I had to go out of town, about a half-hour to the north. Before returning back home, I figured I'd visit the local antique store, which is really big.
Apparently, it used to be two different antique stores that merged into one. With such a big store, I was able to find a lot of great items.
Ah! My cooking problems are over! I've got a book of magic recipes for the new-fangled electric blender that just got invented!
A Hardy Boys Mysteries lunchbox? I can put my electric blender food in there! I would gladly pay $5 for that, but sadly, it cost $45. Antique stores, why can't you have garage sale prices? Then people would actually buy things from you.
There was a large shelf of Disney figurines, which were nice to look at.
Among the pictures they had for sale was one of random mustache man.
Why did they put a copy of Zelda: Minish Cap inside the 1940's case?
After seeing all their items, I was thinking about buying two or three things. But then I overheard the two employees talking about me. They were old and must have hearing problems, because they were talking louder than necessary. They were discussing whether or not they could trick me into buying a figurine, if they pretended it was supposed to be religious. "We'll just say it's a Virgin Mary. He'll never know the difference," the woman said. The man laughed in response.
So naturally, I left without buying anything from Rip-Off Antiques. After that, I went to a smaller antique/gift store. The small store was much better, even if their selection wasn't as extensive. The lady at the counter was nice, and they had garage sale prices. I went home with two 1910s books for five dollars.
