Vanessa had great fun decorating her new shop in Splashin' Safari back in the spring.
Actually, it would be more accurate to call it the new-and-improved Trader Nick's.
The original shop--which opened in 1993--expanded this year, as the adjacent Potato Patch was removed. (Don't worry, those spiral-cut chips are still available at Bahari Snacks.)
In keeping with the Splashin' Safari theme, Vanessa decided to use actual surf boards as shelves.
She turned to eBay to make her clever idea a reality.
A few quick bids later, and a couple of nice surf boards were hers.
In email correspondence to arrange for the delivery of Vanessa's soon-to-be-shelves, the Surfer-Dude Seller was curious about his beloved boards' new home.
Vanessa explained they were to be shipped to Santa Claus, Indiana.
He emailed back: "So, what kind of surf do you get out there in Indiana?"
