So imagine my surprise (and glee!) when I spied ANOTHER giant hand at a thrift shop this weekend. It came as a complete set, with a little girl laying on the palm (although, she's kind of creepy with giant pupils). I haven't decided where to place it yet, I just stuck it on the dvd player for safe keeping for now.
The thing that tickles me the most about the Second Big Hand is that it appears to be the same mold as the first one, but this one is painted in dark colors. The spot where I found it has a heavy hispanic population, so maybe whoever is selling these is targeting their demographic by skin color? In any case, I love to see the representations of the Hand of Gawd in different colors. I hope to someday find a lady's hand to complete the set!
I stumbled across this leather hand chair/barstool last summer while toodling through vintage shops with Kate and although we both were mentally re-arranging our furniture to find a place for it to live in our houses, we just couldn't justify dropping $600 on it. The ceramic ones are much easier to store and to afford. I believe my total outlay for both of them was under $6, so... much more practical, even if they aren't as much fun as a hand barstool!
