Yesterday we were headed out of town to spend the day with a friend and the boys and I decided on a wee stop at a favourite thrift store. Well...I had to get a cart!! It wasn't all for me, mind, I was finding things I knew my friend would love too. I gave her a quick call to be sure she wanted the goodies I was finding and, after a quick twist of her arm ("Want to come meet us at your thrift store? We're here and finding good stuff.") she zipped down to join us. She got her own cart and we were off.
Colourful vintage pillowcases.
Thick woolen blanket.
And enamel goodness. Love the colours.
The reason I first called my friend from the thrift store was to find out if she wanted a pyrex dish. I had found my own last weekend and there was one of the same style on the shelves just waiting for a good home.
Last weekend I also found a super soft merino wool blanket that I bought with a project in mind but I don't think I can bear to cut it up now so I might just add a soft trim and perhaps dye the blanket. I have several packets of Tamarind flavour Kool-aid which I think will make a gorgeous natural colour.
I love seeing these old labels too, and things made in Canada or England.
