18" Talking Jack Sparrow, 2003 [24 Jun 2011|10:04am]


This guy's an 18" Talking Jack Sparrow from around 2003. I got him not long after the first movie, anyway, but he's just been sitting around collecting dust.

I'm selling him HERE

He's up for 65$ Buy-it-Now, or 35$ for a bid.

His phrases include:

I'm Captain Jack Sparrow...

Can you sail under the command of a pirate... or can you not?

I'm going after the Black Pearl, I know where it's going to be. And I'm going to take it.

I swear on pain of death, I shall take you to the black pearl

Do you have the courage and fortitude to follow orders and stay true in the face of danger and almost certain death?

For the black pearl.

thrifting furniture [25 Aug 2010|11:36am]

hello all,

i'm not sure if this topic has come up before and i've been away from livejournal for a while so i can't remember how to do a search within a community....

what i'm trying to find out is which thrift stores in the twin cities and surrounding area have a good selection of furniture.

my regular thrift store doesn't carry furniture and i'd like a place where there are plenty of things to look through like any of the following: chairs, bookshelves, coffee tables, kitchen tables, desks, etc.

have any recommendations?

thanks in advance!

For every new item that comes into my home, I'm trying to find a new home for an existing item... [01 Jan 2008|10:14pm]

I currently have a number of things (jeans, dresses, skirts, etc) posted on eBay, including plus sized and vintage items. Nearly everything (with the exception of two velvet dresses and a steel boned corset) is starting under $10. Please do take a peek. I definitely combine ship and all items are coming from a smoke-free home.

On to the auctions!

-a couple of Stop Staring dresses
-vintage delights
-a number of plus-sized pieces
-a TON of velvet.

Among the standouts are a vintage 1950s opera coat, a black velvet Victorian style blouse, and a cobalt blue crushed velvet tuxedo jacket.

Also, if your tastes run to the retro and you have the itch to stitch, I have a number of vintage patterns in my Etsy shop that will keep you busy all through the winter months!

Yarn For Sale Cheap !! (St. Louis Park) [21 Oct 2006|12:34pm]


I've been going through my stash and I've got all this yarn that I just don't have room for anymore. For only 10$ you get all of it! There are some really fun fibers in here and some of it is wound into balls, so there is more there than appears. I think the cone in the middle alone is a pound. Preference given to who can pick it up the soonest. Must take it all - no picking through it :) Email me for directions, etc..

Free refrigerator [25 Aug 2006|11:26pm]

It's an ordinary, full-sized, stand-up kitchen fridge. It's almond. It has a freezer on top and a fridge just where you'd expect one to be. It has been rinsed out with bleach and it works. It has reversible doors which currently open from the left. There's not much else to say.

It's in Fridley, and free if you can pick it up. If you want me to deliver it, I could probably be persuaded, but it would at least involve $20 for gas money.

xposted to tc_thriftstore and twincitythrift. If nobody replies by Sunday, it's going on Craigslist.
