Sunday Shoppin’: Jennie’s Inc.

Sunday, March 28th, 2010 by

Conveniently located next to Haverhill’s foremost bepper emporium, Jennie’s Inc. unassumingly occupies 133 Merrimack St., its humble exterior barely hinting at its interior largess-  which is, like, absolute junk store heaven.

Jennie's Inc.

As I once Yelped, the selection of amazing finds at mind bogglingly low prices is so vast, you’ll think you were flattened by a be-spoilered*  Civic on your way over from the Salvation Army. I never thought I’d survive another long, cold, flea market-less winter until I stepped foot inside this awesome co-op.

Let’s take a look at just a few of the delightful bargains we encountered this afternoon, shall we?

Scotty needs love, too!
Nerd smut!

Old dude bag- $2.95
Possibly unintentional political satire!

Hipster watermelon piñata!

We also found something labeled “imagination stick” for only $2.00.  I’ll let you draw your own (no-doubt more tawdry) conclusions there.

FIRST HAVERHILL FEVER CONTEST: Find, purchase, and photograph the aforementioned object and you will win a Haverhill Fever t-shirt!**

Today, I scored an antique schoolhouse chair ($6.00), a portrait of the 8th grade class of Pratville, circa 1908 ($5.00), and a vintage Royal Japan sailor decanter (Listed for $40 on eBay) for, um hello, only $3.00!

If you’re a lover of antiques, weird stuff, or simply dig a good rummage, be sure to check out Jennie’s Inc. at 133 Merrimack St.  in Haverhill.

Just please leave some bargains for me, okay?

    Saw your pedestrian turn signals via America Walks’ link to an article on Streetsblog. These seem like a must have for a pedestrian professional! Would you be willing to ship them to me in Wisconsin? I promise to make amazing use of them at several upcoming pedestrian summits. We all need a little fun midst the serious work of creating more walkable communities! Please email me with details. Thanks!!
