That was weird.

I'd gotten it into my head that I wanted to do a "Thrift Store Horror" LJ, with a new distressing, disgusting, tasteless and-or hideous thrift store find every week. Now that I've got a new camera, this is more doable.

So, I went to Savers (a thrift store the size of a grocery store, with actual good prices) on Monday, considering this, but I didn’t buy anything, because I've learned that just because I'm obsessing about something doesn't mean I should invest money in it. I've blown a lot of money on obessions that turn out to be temporary. It's hard to tell the difference.

Anyway, I found a really amazing picture. It was a kind of raver-girl velvet painting, done up with psychedellic colors, glue-glitter and metallics. With the bilateral symmetry, strange glowing aura and beatific expression, it looked like Perkestri, the Hindu goddess of Girl Power. I fell in love with it, but...put it back.

I went back yesterday to pick it up, thinking "Nobody would buy that thing."
