Badger & Beane

Badger & Beane

Dry Goods

Badger and Beane have traveled. They have seen the dark reaches and have explored the borders of the known world. Their collections are widely known and well publicized.  Badger & Beane specialize in "previously owned'  items, particularly burial shrouds, coffin nails, and teeth.


  1. I love the faces on these guys - so childlike and endearing.

  2. We had never been much for cats or Beta fish or for children, and so Beane kept to his work as an accountant, chopping and saran wrapping cold numbers all day, washing his hands before he ate lunch and sneezing into his elbow;And I ruled the firm.

    My hair used to be red,but that's over now
    and I suppose I'm not upset. After all,
    what more can you bleed from the American dream?
    We have our retirement, our 401K, our social security.
    We travel to Barbados, Coasta Rica, Florida. We wake early Saturdays and stroll between endless indistinguishable yard sale displays. We visit our equally bored friends and show them the unloveable junk we find; And we tell them how useful these items are, how an old busted typewriter can turn into a lamp or how a 3 inch tall Dalmatian figurine can put out fires.

    Sometimes, especially on Tuesdays, I wake to the smell of smoke. I roll over to alert Beane, but he's already in the shower singing the morning away.

    ***not sure if this is what you had in mind, but this is what Badger and Beane inspired me to write. Hope all is well. Let me know what you think. Thanks,


    1. Finally time to respond...I like your style of writing, Julianna! I had to read thru three or four times to let it all sink in...very mysterious and matter of fact.
      I like it very much!


    2. Wonderful! I'm so glad you like it. It's invigorating to write about actual creations someone else has made. I feel like the characters you create are beyond Halloween decor. They have a depth of expression that makes them seem as though they are just posing for a photo, and after the camera flashes, they will continue their day. Grocery shopping. Gardening. Watching football. I will keep writing about them since you enjoy it! Thanks!
