You'll never guess who I ran into!

So, I went to the Antiques and Collectibles Show at Portland Expo this weekend. There were hundreds of vendors selling fabulous stuff like these vintage blow molds...

and pretty vintage bling....

and my favorite: Vintage Christmas!

And...

Wait! How the hell did that get in there? I'd recognize that ass anywhere....


Remember these guys? Well, there they were at Expo, selling the stuff they throw old ladies down the stairs for. Most vendors take hours and a lot of care putting together their booths. Certainly not J$&* and F*#! They just throw their precious inventory out on the bare tables. I took these photos on the sly and ran.

OMG! I can't believe you took those pictures. I saw these guys for the first time in person. They must have been on their best behavior and recently bathed. At least I didn't see them push anyone out of the way. So funny!

I saw "things I want to punch in the face" on your sidebar, and thought it was a category of your blog. These fat b*s#&#ds would definitely fall into that category, wouldn't they?!

Did you have to send them down to Salem? Bad enough to run into them in Portland-now they are here frequently!! LOL!!!

Ha! There is a vendor at my local swap meet that I feel the same about! When I pass her booth I curse her name and shake my fist! A pox on them!

Okay you got me. I may not know those guys, but I know plenty like them. Too too too funny!!

So funny! I saw one of these guys get chased out of an estate sale earlier this year and got the full rundown from the "bouncer". Apparently they didn't see the sign? They make my blood absolutely boil!

Ooooh, I just saw this and I have to say, looking at that butt picture and having heard tell of these guys ... it would have been SO easy and SO tempting to have shoved those horns sitting on the table somewhere the sun don't shine.
