Applause 1994 Kirk and Spock Mugs and Sadness.

Once upon a time I went to Value Village, because a friend told me that they saw some Star Trek mugs in the display case. Value Village is one of my favorite thrift stores, and once in a while they have something absolutely amazing for a very low price. Enthused, I pulled on my rubber boots and ran down the street to take a gander.

When I got there, the mugs' designs were more amazingly designed that I had expected. Unfortunately, there were many chips and scratches.


I called over one of the cashiers to check the price - I would still have gotten the mugs if they were not fifteen dollars each.

In fact, I would still have gotten them, if only I had more funds at the time. The cashier did allow me to photograph them before walked home, dejected. One day I shall find another set, whether it be in a thrift store or online. They will be mine.
