The Dork Knight


You could fill ten warehouses with shitty 90s Batman Knock Offs and never get two alike. Just like snowflakes they are....

Frittering my life away


They are like an onion ring, save for being made with apples and BATHED in cinnamon and sugar. The goodness of the apples negates the deep fried nature of these </delusion>

The game of time and wasted space


Every one and a while I run into something that I used to own. In the early 1980s I loved Doctor Who (read here for just how much) and would buy anything with it's logo on it. There really wasn't much to be had so I bought this game, despite the fact that I had no desire or inclination to actually play it. Yep, I bought it for the box, just like I owned 100 or so Who paperbacks, 3 of which I had bothered to read.

I really don't miss any of that stuff but this is a pretty box isn't it?

Silver Bat!


Behold the greatest knockoff I have to encounter, Silverbat! Part Batman, Part Horse, all man. Silverbat was so great that I issue you a challenge to find something an unlicensed toy that can even come close to it's musk.

How about a whole lot of fire Scarecrow?


Found in the back of a flea market stall last week, a creepy as hell dead Scarecrow. Just in case you wanted to buy something that would most likely murder you later.

I still expect to see this thing in my bedroom...

Mint in box Menudo


It's interesting to note that 99% of Menudo merchandise is usually found mint, sealed untouched. Did anyone actually buy and use this stuff? Will anyone ever again?  Will this rare collectible soon be sent to Goodwill?

We're Back!

As  flea marketing season kicks into high gear again, I struggled with the perfect thing to reopen the blog with. 

Nothing compared to this piggy bank with the face of former Canadian prime minister Brian Mulroney.  I can't imagine a home is complete without one.

Seeing as the blog is back, I am calling upon you, all four of my readers to send in photos of:

Unsellable oddities
Awful T Shirts
Knock Offs
Unsold Jar Jar Binks crap
Nightmare fuel
Genuinely cool items
Cat Strollers
Kooks with their cat strollers
VHS finds
Strange Records

You think it's worthy, I wanna see it. Send them me here

Thank you and happy hunting dirt mall fans!
