What in the World (Were they Thinking) Wednesday
Both of these gems come from the Etsy Finds, which means that someone somewhere who works for Etsy thought that these were hip and trendy and whatever.
First, everybody needs a pair of Lady Gaga sunglasses at only $54.99 a pair. But I really think that the only person in the world who could get away with wearing these is the real Lady Gaga.
And then we have a 'vintage bench' and I use that term loosely. What it really is, according to the description, is a workbench made by an Uncle who has been dead for over 20 years, so that means it must be vintage, right? And while it was intended for a workbench it would look really cool next to your thrifted couch, right? And it's only $165.00!! What a bargain!! $165.00 for somebody's piece of crap that they found in the garage!!
It doesn't look like it would even be a very good workbench to me, but hey, it's in the Etsy Finds, so it must be hip, right? And vintage.
Don't be fooled by the nice Adirondack chair in this photo, the piece of crap bench is the thing next to it that most people would have thrown in the trash or chopped up for firewood by now.
I'm going to have Keith go through his many piles of wood scraps that are in the shed, yard, and garage, and see if he can hammer together one of these vintage benches/coffee tables and maybe we can get in the Etsy Finds. And maybe even get $165.00 for it!
