STUFFOkay, I am a bit of a geek about some things (I guess?) As I mentioned once before, I am not a huge STAR WARS fan, but I did like the original trilogy and I LOVE Darth Vader. I did not, nor will I ever watch the new "disneyfied" version of Star Wars. But, thanks to that Disney machine (as it is) there is a whole new merchandising campaign. I was a teen when the first movies hit and much of the merchandising was geared to kids; but now there is a whole new emphasis on adult products as well. And, I guess that is a good thing, because I was able to find these.
And, what makes these the best, I love Vans. The funny thing is Vans and I are the same age, and I loved them as a kid. So comfortable and I can take my boy with me when I go out.
Then I found these Skechers, and of course I had to have them too. You can never have enough Vader.
And let us not forget the flip flops.
But, I think my favorite are the earrings. I know geek!
Someone else I have loved since childhood, Edward Gorey.
I would watch Mystery on PBS just to the see the Edward Gorey opening sequence. So, I do collect Edward Gorey books. I found this unique shuffled story, THE HELPLESS DOORKNOB.
It is a set of 20 cards with Edward Gorey illustrations and words that can be put together is a multitude of ways.
Then there is Edgar Allen Poe. I was thrilled when I was walking through Barnes & Noble and saw this wonderful collection they printed. It is his complete works of tales and poems. Leather bound and a nice quality paper stock.
Then I had heard about this book, and it took me some time to find it and it was worth the hunt.
AMERICAN WRITERS AT HOME. It is a wonderful coffee table book with a pretty unique look at some of the greatest American writers.
The photos are incredible and some interesting facts about the writers' lives.
