Because of this threat, I'm calling today a "Code Yellow" (please refer to the above chart). I'm going to go out on a limb and just assume that I'm preaching to the converted here, but doesn't it just make you crazy, passing by a place where you know all sorts of goodies are just waiting for a new home?
In Appleton, there is a wonderful, and enormous, antique mall (and of course by "antique", I mainly mean, "junque" - awesome stuff, just not Sotheby's awesome). I have found incredible stuff there - old paper dolls, Life magazines for super cheap, miniatures, labels - every type of thing that I love. I even found a few book titles that I had as a kid, and that I bought again just because I was in the mood for nostalgia.
I'm going to pose a question here - in the comment box, I would love to hear what you simply CAN'T pass up when you go to these places. Labels? Stamps? Football programs? Product brochures? I'd bet that if 10 people wrote, I'd get 10 different responses. So let us know what you like to collect!
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go put my blinders on so that I don't make any "wrong" turns. Wish me luck! :D
