Iowans, Was This The Biggest Waste of Money of all Time?
This might be one of the most ridiculously cool things I've ever bought. I had to promise my fiance I wouldn't complain about anything she buys for one month. We are both very different when it comes to money and how we spend it. I'm frugal and she loves spending money. It's possible I've found the biggest thing I've ever wasted money on.
We've never been to this farmer's market before but I have a feeling it will be something we never miss again. The Good Makers Market was held last weekend at the Cedar County Fairgrounds in Tipton, Iowa, and I'm glad we only went for the one day. We could've easily blown every dollar we've ever made.
Look at this thing! I don't know what it is about old-school radios, I just think they're cool. An old-school RCT Victor radio, with the bottom half being a wine rack.
Buying this was probably not one of my better choices. I don't even really drink wine and the radio doesn't even work. If I wanted to I could get it re-wired and replace the tubes on the inside to make it functional again, which would just cost even more money. Essentially, this is going to only be used as a house decoration.
To make this worse, I'm not even sure where I want to put this. As of now, it's going to hang out on the front porch. At some point, I might have to actually try and put some bottles of wine in the bottom because as much as I'm mad at myself for buying this, it is pretty cool to have around the house.
