Last week I introduced the idea of Thrift Store Thursday. This week, we dive into adventure!!! There are many thrift stores in our area – from the old school Sally Ann (Salvation Army), to Value Village, and all the way to your local Christian Thrift Store (which has turned out to be quite the goldmine of cool stuff!).

Here are this week’s SuperDuper finds of awesomeness! Bronze pirate – HERE I COME!!!

Horse Maiden
I call this the Horse Maiden. Clearly there is some kind of bestiality being alluded to with this statue. Why is her dress so low? Why is she caressing the horse like that? And why is the horse bucking so high??? Made of the finest resin.
Horse statue
Another fine piece of equine-themed statuary! Look at the action captured in this beautiful piece. LOOKS like bronze, but don’t be fooled – it’s resin, too. Geronimo!
creepy poodle
Say hello to the creepiest purple poodle statue I’ve ever seen! Just gaze into those adorable eyes and feel the chills of terror spill up and down your spine. If you take this bad boy home, beware – it may try and kill you in your sleep. This is the “Chuckie” of dog statues.
Not-Bronze Pirate
SO CLOSE!!! This is a Not-Bronze Pirate. Equally ugly, but not nearly as heavy as a bronze pirate. I do appreciate the colours used and the incredibly bored stare of the aforementioned pirate (who may or may not be just a simple sailor). I’ll have to keep looking!
Wildcat
This absolute gem is definitely something you’d find in a thrift store. But wait! This handsome devil (and two of his equally adorable friends) are family heirlooms of mine and will NOT be donated to the local thrift store, much to the chagrin of anyone and everyone who comes to the house. They’d be snapped up INSTANTLY! My precious cheetahs…
