|Set of cups, $6|
When I bought these cups I hadn’t yet seen the movie The Incredibles. As much as I loved the cups, I had every intention of getting rid of them if the movie turned out to be a turkey. Fortunately, the movie was good: like Watchmen for littlies. The cups are from Yours Now Mine, an op shop that benefits the San Carlo Home for the Italian Aged. Usually, op shops are simply named after the organisations they raise funds for, and I found it refreshing to come across one with a name somebody had taken the time to think up. I thought the same thing about real estate agency The Right Stuff, until I realised the cursive font on their signs had simply caused me to misread the words Ian Reid & Staff.
