Just kidding, this isn’t LA Ninja Warrior episode 1. It’s episode 2! (For the first installment, see this post.) Really though, I was so pumped, and I mean P-U-M-P-E-D, when I found this matching set. It was just sitting there at a thrift store in Salt Lake over the 4th of July, minding it’s own business, when I came along! It is pretty happy to be with me too, I’m pretty sure…
I would really like to meet the person who first purchased this set because they are obviously awesome. Well, maybe they aren’t that awesome because they did end up donating it to a thrift store. I like to think that they just grew out of it though, maybe too wide or too thin for it? Let’s go with that as to not ruin this person that I have put on a pedestal for buying a dragon ninja outfit.
Anyway, finds like this are why I love to shop for vintage in Utah. I feel like it’s hard to find such awesomeness in Los Angeles, either because it’s gone already or because it costs $5,000. This little set cost me a grand total of $6. Seriously. So, if you ever find yourself in Utah make some time to go to Deseret Industries (the resident and all reigning thrift store chain in Utah), and dig up some gems. I promise you won’t be sorry. Until I go back though, I at least have this guy to keep my heart warm at night.
