Creative Loafing Tampa (http://www.cltampa.com) writers/editors Arielle Stevenson, Julie Garisto and Leilani Polk set upon the Burg for two favorite thrift shopping havens — the Goodwill at Central Avenue and U.S. 19 and the Sunshine Thrift Store at U.S. 19 and 30th Street. Arielle scored a designer handbag, Julie found some Ikea glasses (which probably cost a whole dollar more retail) — goes to show which CL gal is the luckier, more diligent thrift shopper. Holiday items galore could be found, including a real-life fake LED fireplace. Treasure Island antique re-seller Frank Andrade bumped into the women in the housewares aisle at Goodwill. He shared some of his pearls of wisdom and wore one of his trademark hats (which, of course, was acquired while thrifting). Andrade hawks the items he scores at local antique malls. Be sure to read more about thrifting and retro fashion through the decades in CL's Style Issue, out Dec. 13, 2012.
This piece is part of a long series of videos of the experiences on the Aquaquest vessel last year— A sample of the work that is done on the Aquaquest. How our commercial divers, risk their lives to recover the lead ingots. This is an artistic impression of the archaeological recovery imprinted in a digital medium. Also a homage to the great song by Foxygen, In the Darkness. http://foxygen.bandcamp.com/
