Well, I should probably get back to my backlog of “stuff from 2019” to write about. Come, join me – as you’ll soon learn, time is no issue here.
As I entered this sale, one thing was clear: the person that once lived here, and owned all these things, appreciated Buddha (or may even have been Buddhist).
Near the Buddhas were shelves featuring TONS of Christmas decorations.
The one in the back reminds me of Hershel from The Walking Dead.
I always say you can tell a lot about someone by looking at their movie collection. A huge box filled with DVDs was located in the living room – here’s a list of all I saw:
- The 40-Year-Old Virgin
- The Bad Seed
- Bram Stoker’s Dracula
- Brokeback Mountain (on DVD & Blu-ray)
- Left Behind (I think the audio book?)
- Lost, Seasons 2 & 3
- Magic Mike
- Mean Girls
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower
- Scream 3 & 4
- The Seven Year Itch
- Sex and the City (I guess the first movie?)
- The Sixth Sense
- Spider-Man 2
- Tin Cup
- The Queen
Now the main attraction: there was a room in this house. Filled. With. Clocks.
So many damn clocks. I wish I could have gotten a photo of the entire room just so you could see how many there were.
Remember that old viral video/song “Shoes”? Imagine that with clocks.
It’s like that antique store in Star Trek IV.
Mugs were to the kitchen what clocks were to the clock room. Well, almost.
Mostly Norman Rockwell type stuff, but there were a few interesting ones here.
There was some other stuff too.
Yeah, I didn’t get these…
I’m afraid I don’t know who this is, but I bet his name was Alistair.
“After all that, just these two things?”
What sort of persons or persons could have owned all that stuff? A new syncretist religion could be imagined that worshiped Santa and the Buddha in tandem… Why was there a Buddha in the bathroom (as it seemed to be)? —The coppery-colored bust could be of Bishop Sheen (see images of him on Google). The outfit he is wearing looks vaguely ecclesiastical.
