My favorite find of the day…Annette Funicello hardbacks with gorgeous cover art!

Continuing with my Catskills kitsch photos, my friend was very kind and introduced me to the town of Phoenicia, which is a kitsch find in itself. We stopped at the coolest antiques center, Homer and Langley’s Mystery Spot, where we were greeted by a Duane Eddy record on the porch

I went to Cold Spring with my parents today and expanded my Elvis vinyl collection for $5. yay! I love Cold Spring. So many antique/junk shops on one street, it’ll make your head spin.
