FTW? Tuesday! Big Ass Lampshades

Do you remember David Letterman and his big ASS hams? Well I felt the same way when I saw these!

By the way I'm joining Sir-Thrift-a-lot's party: FTW? Tuesday! If you see something weird/ tacky/inapropriate in a thrift shop snap it and join the tuesday party!

Here they are.....

I gasped when I saw this one high on a shelf and I just had to take it down (dust and all) and try to take a pic. That's why the picture is not that good...I just propped it on a display rack.
It looks like a Phentex medusa!


This one was probably knotted/crocheted or whatever by the same crazed crafter!

They are at least 24 inches across! Over what table would these fit? A banquet table?

I shudder at the thought of seeing these in action!

Be sure to vist Sir-Thrift-a-lot and all the other hawk eyed thrifters who spotted awful stuff!

No, no, I don't think they're lampshades, I think they were props for the nudie girls at that raunchy place you blogged about yesterday. Since they're out of a job, they have no use for these anymore. My first clue was all those tassels... And you touched those things, lol?

Oh, ew!!!

I'm just picturing these having EVERY SINGLE SMELL that they've ever come in contact with still living inside them somewhere.
