I decided to shake things up a bit this week and went to G-Dub (my local Goodwill store) on Thursday, instead of my usual Friday. I came home with two books: Woody Allen on Woody Allen, and Theodore Rex, by Edmund Morris, a vintage Romanian etched glass lidded biscuit jar, and a lovely wooden box of vintage chess pieces. Everything behind the counter was fifty percent off, so the chess set was $4.99.
Speaking of, the sexiest chess game, hands down, would have to be that between Faye Dunaway and Steve McQueen in The Thomas Crown Affair, 1968. Hot checkmate. Very hot.
|For those of you who get a thrill from seeing the price tag...|
here it is...before the 50% discount...
