I took a VERY long walk today with my sister. We dropped off her car for repairs and walked a good 45 blocks in 80 degree heat. Just a few months ago I didn’t have the energy to walk four blocks, much less forty. And for that I am so thankful.
We found some pretty cool stuff along Bergenline Avenue. I live in a very poor and very Hispanic area full of dollar stores, bodegas (convenience stores), and botanicas. All of this means there’s always something really cool and out there to find, if you know where to look.
This fox was in the front store window of a tacky clothing store. The moss is ugly and the fox was just sort of there. Very bizarre but I love it!
This was in the window of a junk shop. The owner ran out of the store and gave me the evil eye for taking the photo but whatever. I never understood why some store owners dislike people taking photos of their stuff. Weird. Anyway, I’m coveting this sewing machine but he was asking for $300 for it. For that amount of money, I’d rather buy one that hasn’t been sitting in a window for a billion years. I’m surprised he even said it was for sale. My experience with junk shops like this one is that the owner refuses to sell anything because they’re just a hoarder.
