This Week In "Owling" at Thrift/Antique Stores

Planking is so two weeks ago. Now it's owling. Looky here if you haven't been paying attention to the meme of the moment.

For us, though, owling will always mean making a big-eyed bird of prey out of macramé, string art or cheap ceramic. Decorative owls were perched in lots of American homes in the hootenanny days of the 1970s. Now they've migrated to thrift and antique stores.

After the jump, check out more of this week's finds, priced from $2 to $60 and up.
