shopping for the man cave

Not your average dummy.  This, the trademark slogan of Surplus Herbie’s (now where’s that “trademark” symbol?!)

Stepping into Herbie’s for a blast of “mancave” shopping.  A church of many faiths, Herbie’s.  A cheap-o alternative to the overpriced outdoor gear stores (with the notable exception of carbon fibre bullet-proof fishing rods and reels and aisles of fly-tying paraphenlia).   A d.i.y. splurge in home fix-ups.  The only place to get something as eminently utilitarian as a foam mattress, a leather shoelace, or some smoke-damaged coveralls (Tom Waits should write a song about this).  Or just to marvel at the immortal shelf life of green canvas ex-Army surplus.

When it comes down to it, it’s mostly crap I don’t really need.  So a guilty indulgence altogether – but it feels so practical at the same time (!)

 

 

And the tackiest TV ads ever created.  Who can resist?

(Actually, a superb deal on a hard case with those little foamy insert things you can customize to put cameras in… I mean just a criminally insane good deal… thank you, Herbie!)
