Is there such a thing as being all thrifted out??? I don't think so!
I went to Montreal to visit my friend Celine (not Celine Dion). She knows that I don't have all the thrifting ressources possible since I don't live in Montreal anymore. So the girls, they went-a-thrifting!
That is actually a real bad pic! Out of focus, with Bob taking a bath...
We hit Le Chainon,Value Village,Fripeprix renaissance, Salvation army,a little funky Green shop and a garage sale (on a Tuesday?). We wanted to see more but one was closed for vacation and the church bazzar was held Mon,Wed and Fri...
This morning I feel 85 with arthritis! My calves are burning and I can barely bend my feet! But I digress.
I found 3 Corelle saucers for the cats, a relish(?) dish , a brand new soy candle christmasy scent , a paperback , a silk scarf leopard print, a vintage tablecloth (really cute) and a funky retro vase. And all for under 12$. COOL!
A note on the vase: It came from the really strange tuesday garage sale...I was looking at their stuff and spotted the vase (really dirty vase), I was looking for the price, when a woman whispered in my ear 'pas cher'- not expensive. She scared me so much I nearly dropped the vase! And she really,really smelled of booze in the middleo the afternoon. I bought the vase and went one my merry way. I hope her hangover is mild this morning.
My friend Celine (not Celine Dion) gave me a really nice Pyrex for my collection, the snack server. Her mother would use it to serve peas and potatoes. She says it had a rack (long lost) but I was not the usual snack server rack, it was in black iron with handles on the side....interesting
Well I hear thrifting calling! I.E: the church basement...see you later alligator
