Why you may ask? It was not because they didn't offer lovely interesting things, I think my scope has narrowed.
Don't be shocked, I still have a huge and hanging thrifting bucket list!
Here's what I got in Maine for $10 dollars.
Now the saltine tin was definitely on my thifting buckert list.
I've been eyeing them for the past year and I always found them too expensive on Etsy because you have to add the shipping(this coming from an Etsy shop owner,lol )
I also got the Pyrex Flamingo dinnerware bowl for $1, so that means I need to find 3 more to complete my set. I you have some and want to get rid of them drop me a line....
And the classic 501 fridgie. Why the fridgie? Well the price was right at $4.00 and one I have is all chippy and getting dangerous.
So I spent a big $10.00 at the thrift in Maine....
Yesterday we did go to a local flea market, it was their last day of he season... Finnegan's flea market in Hudson, QC.
It is a magical place, and again much better without the heat and the crazy, bossy tourists.
That blue bird tea set is a hoot!
You know me and blowmolds!
I nearly came home with this little guy....
I love a big old barn
This barn is actually open year round on appointment.
It is full of beautifyl restored furniture.
However, being in constant contact with Dan Woodworker extraordinaire, I know
that most of the finishes on the furniture looks bad. The color is too bold, too uni-dimensionnal and the varnish is WAY too shiny!
I found this table near the barn, unattended was very whimsical and I had to snap it
The vintage/antiques factor was lower than the crafter factor and there was a lot of cool things to get for Xmas.
A got a necklace (it's a gift so I'm not telling)
And I got this...
Funny how its name escaped my mind as soon as I purchased it....
I remember it's supposed to taste of hazelnuts....
It comes from Vanleek Hill, Ont. and it is organic.
Who cares about the name? HAHAHA, not me!
Have a great week!
I need to catch the end of Walking Dead
