I’ve driven by the 2nd Time Consignment Shop hundreds of times since I’ve moved back to Peoria. It’s on the way to the office of where I work and I keep meaning to stop in as I drive by. And so it has been decided that today is that fateful day. To the MBIP Mobile, Robin! Robin? Hey, where the fuck is Robin?
Here we are at the 2nd Time Around Consignment Shop. The name of this shop would've been a good name for a band in the '60's.
Okay, let's find the side entrance, I'll play by the rules.
And here is the aforementioned side entrance. Let's enter and let this Shop Hop adventure begin.
Here's Lou Frels, the owner of this fine establishment. He told me that this shop has been here for 22 years.
Lou is really at ease in front of the camera and here he strikes quite a seductive pose. Go for it, Lou! Okay, let's take a look around in here and see what we can find.
Check out the Lindsay Lohan doll. Lindsay looks like she's had a bit of a rough night out on the town and oh my...she doesn't appear to have any nipples or a vagina. No wonder she drinks so much and Hoovers up the cocaine like a vacuum that goes to 11.
Here's a porcelain John Wayne Gacy doll waving to a troop of Boy Scouts. See you in the basement!
And through it all, Lou stands tall and he does it his way...goddammit!
Obligatory consignment shop mirror shot!
Lou has run, Lou has crawled, Lou has scaled these city walls, only to be with you. Only to be with you. But Lou still hasn't found what he's looking for. Goddammit.
Left to right: Future Manson women, Susan Atkins, Leslie Van Houten and Patricia Krenwinkel read a primer on sticking forks in people's stomachs and carving swastikas into their foreheads. Helter Skelter!
Speaking of creepy...yikes!
I always buy something at every shop I go to and I think I'm going to get this book...
Cherry Ames, Night Supervisor...what a whore!
Lou is so excited about this purchase that he busts a move right then and there at the front counter of his store. And I have to tell you something, once Lou gets his groove thang in high gear, it's pretty gosh-darned exciting! See you all tomorrow.
