I was in Vancouver this past weekend hanging out with a good friend of mine. We. Had. A. Blast! This is going down as one of my most memorable adventures with L. She’s on her last leg of schooling, she’s already got a fantastic job on the horizon and we knew a fun weekend was what we needed. It felt great to go out and socialize.
One great thing about L (among many) is she is my go-to thrift buddy. We both have the patience and humour that are optimal characteristics of a thrifter and we are honest in our opinions. I found three dresses and a shirt that I knew would be useful additions to my wardrobe. I didn’t purchase anything on a whim and I felt really good about what I took home.
I mentioned to L earlier that I needed a spice rack. I’m sure she saw me looking at her magnetic spice racks with envy. Well, what did we happen upon in the thrift store? A magnetic spice rack! I was so happy when she found them and for $6! Perfect. Because they’re magnetic they can go on the fridge and I’m not losing any precious counter space. Just what I was looking for.
I’ve added photos of the dresses I purchased. I have to say I’m pretty jazzed at what I took home. Also, they were my only purchases on my weekend trip of ‘take home items’ otherwise it was food and drinks so my home remains uncluttered. I’m also kind of pleased I went with a ‘buy nothing new’ method. I just gave clothes a second life. You can find a lot of treasure at second hand stores. It is hit-or-miss but I think that’s the fun in it.
