    I spotted this critter in one of my regular stops on my Thrift Shop Route. *GRAB* - $4.95 came out of my wallet.
    I've never seen anything like it. The antennas are a bit worse for wear (one is missing) but that isn't a biggie. This baby is HUGE. I looked on Google Images and didn't find a single one that has distinct, separate wings. I searched fly and and bee metal ashtrays, but am sure this is a fly. I know there is one posted here that is from the early 1900s, but it doesn't look like this one. I looked everywhere and didn't find any marks, either.

    Thanks for coming!
