Random Collections!

First off, welcome to my new readers! Please, make yourself at home and I hope you enjoy my little corner of the web!! Thanks for subbing!! (Subbing? Is that a thing? For blogs?)

As you know, I am a thrifter. Mistah J and I like to check out thrift stores, antiques, flea markets, the sorts and see what cool nostalgic stuff we can find. It's mainly geeky things or things from our childhood. I do have a thing for furniture/items from the 50s-60s.

And Pyrex. I love Pyrex.

But anyways, the point of this post is have you started up a collection of things by mistake? Okay, so not really a mistake but you weren't on a mission to collect these items or made it a point. It just happened.

Mistah J laughs at me when I say "I didn't meant to collect them. It just happened!"

I wasn't set out to start collecting them. I rescued the Transformers one from a Goodwill. The Lion King was next at a Salvation Army. Dick Tracy was found in a box at the flea market. Now I have five of them. I think once I find a Princess of Power one, I will stop "collecting" them.

Do you remember the Ben Cooper/Collegeville halloween costumes? In case you don't or have never heard of them, they were costumes that had a vinyl dress or pant suit and came with a plastic mask. They were huge until the late 80s, very early 90s. The companies went out of business. I wore these costumes when I was a kid. I found one and it spiraled out of control.

Mistah J does not approve. He says he's scared of them. My mission to make a line of these mask up on the wall. I have a She-ra that I need to hang up.

Ahem, if you by chance come across any Thermos or Masks and want them to go to a good home, I will be happy to help out!

THESE GLASSES!! From what I have found out, Pepsi made these in the 70s and I think they were sold in fast food places. My first one was a Henry the Hawk from Looney Tunes. Found it at the Treasure Island flea market. It turned into my picking these up randomly and now I have nine of them. The Looney Tunes are sitting on a shelf and I can't reach them but I will photograph them!

Do you guys collect any of these items? Do you have a random collection that you didn't mean to start but it happened? Am the only crazy one?
