Thriftstore Purgatory and Vintage Chinese Erotic Ads

August 21, 2008

I came across a Flickr group called thriftstore Hell and it’s members have posted everything from the ridiculous to the downright creepy. I particularly like the disembodied window displays. Here’s a sample from user Opal in the Rough:

From user Fauns and Ferns:

And from it’s newest member, me:

And this, which has even creepier details enlarged:

Also, the always-dependable-for-daily-weirdness nicolas cage vampire teeth has posted a bunch of Vintage Erotic Chinese Advertisements.  Or at least I can tell that some are ads, but I’m not sure about the rest. Does anybody know anything about this lost art?
