What happened? Where did your store move to?
Well, I wrote it somewhere else pero yo no sê adonde.

Here I go, my dad passed in 2014 and he got a kick outta Mr Corning. Plus, my entire family LOVES the inventory! There is one ee that wears iceberg on one shoulder and 5” thick concrete on the other. So very annoyed with everyone especially when you are not as white as a brand new t-shirt.

Just waiting for the day when I have no doubt she is practicing prejudice. It is on!

I am the caucasion with one one eye wide open and eyebrow raised to my hairline!
A little bird tells me that a new Random store is coming to lower State St?

I love this store and have spent hours just poking around. I've bought loads of things for gifts or just for the fun of it. We'll be back in Santa Barbara around the 5th of October and plan to visit the store in its new location. Looking forward to it!!
Great store, I have found lots of neat things I would never find anywhere else.

How to fail up (and I found a box of WWII stuff) 11/08/2019

How to fail up (and I found a box of WWII stuff)

Thank you to Pen and Pepper by PEPPURTHEHOTONE
NOVEMBER 6, 2019 for the mention in your blog:

While I was in Santa Barbara, my new friend Sophia (who runs SoFar Sounds SB) told me about this amazing shop on State Street called Random. It is exactly that. A random flea market+vintage shop+bookstore+holy crapoloa I love it store. There are boxes of things like jeans and buttons and kitchen tiles and paintbrushes everywhere. I wandered to the back and found a box of someone’s personal stuff. This happens all the time; people pass away and then their stuff ends up in a world of Random for people like me to find.

Because I’m heavy into researching on Ancestry.com and would love to find anything random on my family, when I found this box full of vintage family photos, I got suuuper excited. As I dug further, I discovered this box most likely belonged to a WWII photographer (or someone who enlisted and was good with a camera). I really hoped that some of his war-time photos would have just even one black person and I could hope that maybe it was someone to whom I belonged. Alas, that wasn’t the case. However, it is the case for someone else. So, for Veteran’s Day on 11/11, I’m going to write a special blog post about the box and show more photos from it in the event that maybe we can find to whom these pictured people belong.

How to fail up (and I found a box of WWII stuff) Aye-yi-aye! The past couple of days have been r-o-u-g-h! Hormone Rita has been raging but on top of that, I had to acknowledge that while I thought I was “past it”, my no-kid grief stil…
