Random Buys: Bowling Alley Chic

April 26, 2007

Will someone please buy this thing? It bothers me that it’s still sitting in Blue Bell Bazaar’s etsy store looking for a home. It’s been nearly a month already. I don’t get it.

Random Buys: Bowling Alley Chic
I found one just like it on a recent trip to Vermont and it was $80 and in quite bad shape. This pin is only $20 and would be great in that unexpected place. On a bookcase. Outside in a flower garden. As a doorstop. Please buy it and show me a picture once you’ve added it to your home, I want to see how you use it.

Better yet, if you buy it and send me a picture showing how you mixed it into your space, I’ll paypal you $20 just to see it go to a good home. Deal?

    Holly, that is such a cool offer! It made me smile. I hope someone buys it and sends you the photo. Thanks for all the inspiration.

    Yeah, OK. I’ll bite. But only because I’d been chewing on it for about a week now. :)

    I’ll e-mail you pics when it goes up, but no money necessary.

    (I really want that “Q” as well…)

    Hey, I’ve got three pins like this one. Picked ’em up in Arkansas a couple years ago for $9.00 – total.

    Holly, I love bowling pins, I just posted about one that my husband has in the office. I haven’t found the right spot for it yet.
