Friday Finds, Atlantic City Street Style: Monopoly Game Pieces

Monopoly Board GameOur mini-vacay at Caesars in Atlantic City was royally fun. Tuesday we spent most of the afternoon being pampered at the spa, then moved several property spaces over to the House of Blues for a rocking U.S. Foodservice party. And of course, we couldn't call it a night without playing the slot machines. I didn't collect $200, but I did obliterate enough ugly extraterrestrials in the Alien bonus rounds that my duct tape wallet left with as much cash as it started with.

Despite the trip spinning by much too quickly for my tastes, I had to smile when passing so many of the street names made famous by my childhood favorite board game, Monopoly. Once home, I made a gamble and was pleased with the handmade creations Etsy dealt back.

  3. How original, love the pieces and the idea.
