On Monday afternoon, Karen & I packed ourselves, and Gretchen, into her little red car, for a rainy afternoon road trip to Beyond The Blue Box aka. the best thrift shop I've ever had the pleasure of perusing.
Row upon row, treasure upon treasure. Even while wrangling a busy two year old, I was able to find an armload of delights to bring home.
So good, right? That owl has a matching rabbit pal, which went home with my pal, Karen. Twins! So lovely, so sweet.
I couldn't resist that cat book (which actually turned out to be free!), while the trivet might be my favourite piece from the day... been looking for something just like this for a while now. That and the mug, they look just like items my gramma would choose, and her tastes are rather impeccable. As for that tiny umbrella girl? I just couldn't leave her behind. It'll find a spot in Gretchen's room soon.
Any guesses as to what I shelled out for the haul? Because I nearly forgot how to speak English when the cashier asked for "$3.50, please". Amazing. I want to go back. Now.
Have you had any thrifty-luck lately? It's getting a little tiring always checking our local shops, so I'm glad we got a chance to check this one out. And we'll certainly be making another venture there in the (near!) future. I hope!
Wish you all the best, in life (and love). Now it's time for tea, and goodnight.
