Thrifting has been even WORSE! I went to Le Chainon (a Montreal thrift store benefiting battered women) and it was soooo dismal and depressing, if I had a lighter I would've set fire to it all and be done with it.
I still can't believe that dear old mom gave all the silverwear, porcelain and dishes to that place. She didn't want me to get any of it.
At another thrift shop I saw these...
This was the best view I could get from this vintage pinball machine. It was sqeezed between desks and sofas.
I was glad to see some Pyrex and Fireking. Didn't pickt the casserole up because i already have it! It was a gift from Erin from Toronto Yard Sale Snoop . Thanks again girl I cherish this Turquoise Snowflake casserole. It has a special place in my heart.
Being in Plateau Mt-Royal I was taken back to my childhood.
In all the gentrification madness, it is very refreshing to find little indie stores like this one. They sell second hand records.
Oh I almost forgot! I saw this and nearly pick it up! It's a toilet paper roll holder! How crazy is that?
I pick up this Good Seasons dressing bottle a couple of weeks ago for 50 cents in a church basement. It's perfect to make dressing with my new fave spice mix! It's called Streu Mi and it comes from Switzerland. Since I'd never ever seen this, I just had to get it. It's a mix of spices and herbs and it has curry in it and it's DELICIOUS! Ok,ok I must admit it has some MSG in it, but not too much. Swiss people don't seem to mind too much about the MSG....I add a bit of cider vinegar and EVOO. It's great with a green salad with red onions :)
Be well my friends and good luck with your thrifty endeavours!
