That's a Drifloon hat - inspired by a character in the Pokemon world. We spend a portion of our Saturday afternoons at the local comics and games shop for Pokemon League play (and I indulge my geeky side with comic reads and chats with other like-minded adult folk)
This week there was a fellow thrifter/ebay-er to chat to at the comics shop. We traded shipping tips and local scouting hotspots. Like the Big Garage Sale that happens quarterly at the South Florida Fairgrounds expo center.
My last time at the BGS was a great book find day, yet also found these springy bits:
Being pulled to graphics again with this Ultra-Geeky game circa 1980:
Game play consisted of MANY pages of calculations for ship movements, etc!
1964 Florida atlas - I can't quite let go of this one yet - too enjoyable browsing the statistics of pre-Disney Florida, just at the start of the space race.
And as always - there's a thrifting ooops tale...
Yup - another case of not checking condition well beforehand. These pages of illustrations are very usable though - mixed media work or frameable individually. (The rest of the book is in much better condition.) And the glory of thrift - it was a $1 learning lesson!
(Now why is that Kenny Rogers song ringing in my ears? "you gotta' know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, ...and when to WALK AWAY")
