bARTer Sauce 7 the Empire Carpet Man

Remember him? Empire Carpet?
588-2300 emPIRE!
I remember him from my college days in Peoria, IL (I know -- you feel for me. You should). Those commercials would always interrupt The Simpsons.
Now, bARTer Sauce is the proud temporary owner of TWO Empire man Bobblehead dolls
One is in pristine condition in the original box (not that that will ever matter under any circumstances) and the other has been ripped free of the original box that it was so carefully shipped in because I had to see what it looked like -- and quite frankly -- I wanted to play with it. Mind your own damn business.
Me neither.
Curious how Empire Man made it into my hot, little hands? 
bARTer Sauce is an experiment in trading for art and odd objects. Everything I get -- I trade for something else. And everyone who trades with me has to tell me a story. I document all the trades and stories on my website: bartersauce.com.
Check it out.
Trade with me.

I am also from Illinois and still remember the empire carpet phone number from the commercial. I will not repeat here though as I have made a dork of myself enough already. Nice find! Cool blog too! Thanks!
