This Just In: Pot Calls Kettle Black

OK. Speaking of obsessed… I just have to say My name is Leah and I’m a kitsch-o-holic.
One of the things I make and sell at my shop Magpie and at craft fairs is fridge magnets made from kitschy old (1950s and 1960s) figurines.
I hunt high and low for all kinds of figurines (not just bowling). I spend hours and hours of my life looking for them in various places. The thrill of the hunt is just as fun as finding them.
Recently I noticed my supply of bowling figures was running low. Because these are old dead stock, I always worry when this happens because I know I may never find them again. So on a whim I decided to try eBay and I ran across an auction for a lot of hundreds of the very same kitschy old plastic bowlers! So I snatched them all up and they just came in the mail today.
I even got some mini bowlers which I’d never seen before!
I’m thrilled and ashamed at the same time! I’m such a packrat! I must shove these into my craft closet before anyone sees!
