Out thrifting....

I haven't been thrifting in a long time...I would like to say forever, but that is just not true

Saturday we decided to go on a road trip...first Lake Placid...changed our minds because of weather and politics....

then we opted for Cornwall, Ontario and then i saw the weather update...not good a foot of snow or more...

so that is when we opted for Valleyfield, Qc.....My Dad lived there as a child, we had a VR there for some years and it is still an area we enjoy...

First off here some things I left....


 I was tempted by the fondue plates...
I have been craving cheese fondue and chinese fondue...

 Nice Corelle teapots plus a Pyrex coffee pot

 I had never seen plastic Cinderella bowls...Unknown maker.

 Those kitties were a hoot but too expensive at $10 each....

 The 4 bowls were $20. A good price but I already have them..




 These are the goodies that came home with me....

A large Fireking Jadeite bowl, a stainless steel tissue box cover,
a vintage S&P set (corn) , a vintage tin and a big beer glass.

The shakers were .50 the pair, the tissue box cover was $5 (great because retail they
sell for $30-$35), the tin and the glass were free....
My biggest find was the bowl!
That dealer had no idea what that was and he let me have it for
$5. Yes $5!!!! WOOT!

I'm keeping the bowl for the time being....

Here's a close up from the tin....

It felt really good to go for a car ride, to thrift, to hang out....
NICE!

Till next time!

But once in a while......

I am quite disillusioned  with the human race nowadays...

So much hate, negativity, violence.....aaaaarrrggghhh!

It is everywhere: social media, tv,newspapers, near the water cooler, in the bus, the subway

Sometimes I can't take it anymore! It stresses me out and I am sure I am not the only one!!!

But once in a while...I see something that gives me hope that all is not lost...

That there is still some love and understanding....

 I saw this on a lamp post. It says:
If you're cold take one
the ziplock was full of winter gloves....



 Then the next lamp post was this....

Same thing: If you're cold take one.
In this bag you could find woolen caps (toques)

That made me feel warm allover!
Some people still care.

Thank you!!!

This afternoon on my way home I found this darling Ikea
turquoise cart.

WOW and the beat price EVER! FREE!!!  

It needs a good scrubbing but overall it is in great shape!

WOOHOO!

I had a great day, I laughed and laughed and it felt good!

I hope you laughed today
