Today officially ended my straight 3 month/7 day a week work schedule. It wasn't too bad to be honest. What did I do to celebrate you ask? Well, my friend Emily and I went to explore the world of out-of-business store fixtures. She and I are gearing up for our final craft bazaar of the season this Saturday and Emily has decided to get a little experimental with her display. There are several fixture shops around town, but the one we went to was new territory for us. The outside was daunting to say the least, with a naked, female mannequin chained up and straddling a giant horseshoe. Frankly, it looked like the start of an episode of Criminal Minds. However, once we got inside it was like Disney World for folks that like things a little off center, just like we do. It was a wonderland of old mannequins and various bins of body parts. A total paradise of strange. She found exactly what she needed while I snapped some photos with her camera phone. If I had any idea of what wonderment laid behind those walls, I would have brought my proper camera.
Here are some of the photos I took that don't even come close to expressing how fantastic it was!
