    I love this post. It’s so true! The boyfriend and I love to venture even just an hour outside Toronto and, BOOM, cornucopia of amazing finds that nobody cares about!

    Great looking blog, by the way.

    Oh man, I miss that place and the delicious brunches that happened there! I wonder how Betty’s doing these days.

      Brunches, tv bingo, catering our first and last event– god, those were some good times. If I had to guess, Betty’s probably wondering how to use her iron, but she’ll figure it out. She’s a fighter.

    Take a long weekend trip to the northern suburbs of Philadelphia. Venture all the way up to Montgomery and even Bucks Cos. The thrift stores don’t disappoint.

    Wow, that little nook of yours reminds me of the one in my home, dating from 1946. It was the perfect place for my vintage phone, an old school chair and papers and pens… I miss it!!! We lost it in the renos. I never thought of painting it another color to make it stand out. That was a great idea!!!!

    Just came over here from Apartment Therapy. Love love love everything about your blog! I live in Regina and have not been to Value Village for years but now I will be going soon to see what I can find. Looking forward to more great posts!

      Thanks and yay for Regina!!! And yes, you HAVE to go. Just spend days among those rows of white shelves. I can also recommend wheel-a-deal furniture right across the street if you haven’t been there– they have like a thousand strange little white dogs and some fun furniture and assorted vintage stuff (lamps, mostly) if you dig for it.

    I caught the Regina, SK reference on the desk post, thanks for explaining. We’re moving to Saskatchewan (in less than 2 weeks), and if there’s thrift in Saskatoon similar to in Regina, we’ll be happy campers. Thanks!
