The Thrift Shop Obsession…

I know I’ve mentioned Goodwill once already, but this piece is where my obsession with buying thrift shop art started. Up until this point, I was very selective. I would not give my hard-earned dollars away without certificates of authenticity or hand-written stories. But that all changed when I saw something that I couldn’t take my eyes off of. It was an odd trio that looked like an Expressionist/Fauvism/Cubism hybrid – if that’s even a real thing (which it probably isn’t). But anyways, there it was on the shelf and I knew I had to have it…

In Seattle, you will find a Goodwill flagship store on S. Lane St. and I am not exaggerating when I say that, on a good day, I could spend hours there. This is one of the first thrift shop pieces of art I bought when I moved here in 2012; and it is safe to say that it has become one of my favorites.

No idea who the artist is/was and probably paid about $3 for it…
