gim-crack: n. A cheap or showy object with little or no use; a gewgaw.
Two weeks ago, a friend had told me about something called "Celebrity Bric-a-Brac Theatre" and I thought it was the cutest thing. I don't know a lot about celebrities, so I could take or leave the impersonations but I love watching the little knickknacks dance around.
Yesterday, we went to the boardwalk in Ocean City for my niece's birthday, and I couldn't stop thinking about the junk shop at the end. They have a giant collection of those funny "made in japan" knick knacks from the 1970's. I found a little fawn for about $6, last fall. We never made it to the shop, so this morning I'm "browsing" Etsy for good deals on gimcrack.
What do you collect?
...and so much more!
