The other day I went treasure hunting with a friend. Neither of us were looking for anything in particular which I usually find more enjoyable... no disappointment, only nice surprises. We went off our traditional beaten path and took a gamble on Out of the Past. Wow and OH, MY. It was an overload to the senses and will probably haunt me for some time. There are literally piles of artifacts, "arranged" on a series of shelves, with small carved out walkways to navigate your way through the chaos. If you like a challenge and don't mind searching for a gem among some damaged goods then it's completely worth a visit. There's a really nice lady working there to boot. Astonishingly they have a myspace so you can check them out here.
I walked away with this super cute Golden Book for $3. Love me some words.
