My fave thrift store is located right here in Malibu. Some of the funkiest things show up there from time to time - including a Golden Globe award or two, maybe even an Emmy. I have yet to see an Oscar.
I am also a garage sale junky as you can imagine. When I moved to Malibu, I was worried my thrifting would be cut down to a minimum. I was so wrong. There is a plethora of incredible things to be thrifted in this town. I found a vintage Gucci travel bag in perfect condition for $50 ( would have been $250 on Ebay ), lots of designer clothes for pennies on the dollar, but my biggest score to date is my fabulous find from yesterday - one of Pam Anderson's lounge chairs. See the chairs above with the linen chair pads? I got the shabby chic style wood lounge ( painted white and distressed ) with the pad - which will be washed - maybe even a couple of times - not just once - and for a song!
Pam did some major purging when she decided to shack up with Tommy Lee again.
GLIVING.com did a story on her garage sale ( I can't believe I missed out on that one ! ) - and come to find out, the garage sale was just a teaser to her getting rid of everything.
I was blown away when I heard she was selling everything and moving in with Tommy Lee because she had quite the collection of wonderful furniture and china, mostly purchased from a very expensive store in Venice called Bountiful ( pics below ). Why wouldn't they just blend what they had? Or why not keep it in storage - isn't she famous for frequent change - in men and homes? It just seemed a little strange - although that's just par for the course (for her ), I guess.
Never the less, I scored. Paid only $40 ( and I know she paid waaaaaaaaay more for it ) for this special piece of Anderson memorabilia. Schedule pick up is Monday ( I will squeeze another post out of it of course ). I would have had it already if it would have fit in my Prius.
Something to look forward to ( for me ), and the past for some ( Pam ).
