On Consignment

Kitty Cast Iron Doorstop
Shhh...don't tell The Hubby! 
I may have a slight problem with acquiring cat statues, pins, scarves, etc.  I really have more stuff than I need, but let's just say that I'm a collector. 

So, when friend BG and I visited Ditto Consignments & Design in New Baltimore, Michigan (right on Lake St. Clair!), I immediately headed for the cat display.  Oh yeah, the folks who run this store hooked me like a largemouth bass!  There were cat paintings, cat toys, cat dolls, and cat doorstops.  I grabbed the kitty above, minutes before a couple showed up to paw through the cat collection too!  There was also cat items displayed about the entire place; one has to search a bit, to uncover wonderful treasures.  What fun!

Collecting stuff is not new to me; I have a Star Trek, Original Series book and game collection; a ton of Sherlock Holmes things; "The X-Files" TV show EVERYTHING, and quite a supply of Haunted Michigan books.   The trick is to carry such treasures past The Hubby, without his noticing that I've got another armload of stuff!  If he's spotted my new doorstop, he hasn't said anything.

    1. However, the one door that needs a stop, needs one that weighs 1/2 a ton...to keep Da Boyz from bothering Angel! We use one of The Hubby's 20 lb. weights...

  17. A cast iron anything is valuable to me. What do Da Boyz think of it? As to collecting, that reminded me that I once had the blueprints to the original 'Star Trek' series Enterprise. They were professionally done and covered the whole ship. I have no idea where they went. Sigh.
