Thrifty Finds

In the beginning of June we went to a super duper church basement sale in St-Zotique ,Québec about 30 minutes west of Ile Perrot.

It was rainy, so rainy but we managed to score a couple of cool finds.

I'm pretty sure I'll be keeping this one. So far every one I see, I put in the store and they always sell pretty fast. I have 2 small santas but this is my first small snowman blowmold.
For 1$ what's not to like?


I also snatched this sweet orange juice serving set for a song. This is already in the store...1961 Good Morning Juice Serving Set by Napcoware...barely used...makes you wonder!

And this...well I should say these because we got 4. One orange, one white and 2 turquoise...


Stackable plastic and metal chairs from the 60's.

From Plastique Provincial who were best know to make the classic plastic motel chair in these parts....

This is the Solair chair in designed in Montreal in 1972.

They sold hundreds of thousands and I would die to put my thrifty hands on some.

They are still in production but these days they would set you back about 100$ each!

We gor ours for 12$ for 4. SWEET!

Which reminds me that I have a really cool turquoise spatter melamine serving plater still in the car trunk!

Have a great night :)

I remember sitting on those round chairs outside a motel in Niagara Falls in about 1987. I've always remembered those chairs- couldn't tell you much more about the trip, though!
