Welcome to the 2011 Purple Hull Pea Festival and World Championship Rototiller Races! No, I'm not kidding.
Oh! and there was an awesome tractor parade! And a barrel push! I bet I can use the most exclamation points ever in one post!
This store may look like a dump, but I have to say there was some pretty cool stuff in there. Theater seats, old cigar boxes, typwriters, even a huge old radio console that looked like it was from 1945. When we walked in, there was a little old man in a cowboy hat trying to tune an old Fender guitar he had found. I offered to tune it for him, and when I did, he took it and started playing Johnny cash. I thought everyone in the store was singing along. I felt like I had gone back in time. They even said "Y'all come back now, y'hear?" I thought people only said that in movies! I wish I would've remembered to bring my camera.
I actually found this section that had about 20 old film and Polaroid cameras. I was literally jumping up and down. Do you know how hard it is to find a Polaroid camera? So, I ended up leaving with these beauties for a grand total of $25. (To be payed to my parents once I have money...)
I looked online and the film for this baby is about four times as expensive as the camera itself. I suppose that's what I get for paying $5. It was working, though!
This guy isn't even terribly old. $5 it was.
This one is my favorite. $15. I love junk shops. I kind of doubt I can fix it, though. It's pretty rusty.
They actually had one of these, (I can't remember what it's called) but it was $30 that I didn't have. I really need a job.
