It is really fun for me to share thrift finds that I am super excited about but I though today I would share some photos of things I found that I didn't buy. Looking back on some of these I really wish I had have taken them home with me! Does anyone else take photos of things they find and really love but decide not to buy for whatever reason?
What: Label maker.
Where: Antique Attic on Ottawa Street
Why I loved it: I love label makers and I think it is super funny when there are labels on label makers. The purple orange combo on this one is so cute!
Why I didn't buy it: I don't need another label maker, even one previously owned by Mr. Bob Kaufmann.
Do I wish I bought it: No, I'm ok with my decision.
What: Cheese plate
Where: Value Village
Why I loved it: The colours are amazing, it would have matched our kitchen and the mushrooms are so cute!
Why I didn't buy it: We don't eat cheese so I refrain from buying cheese plates.
Do I wish I bought it: Yes! I must have been taking crazy pills that day to leave this behind. Who cares that I don't eat cheese?! I could have used it for decoration. Ah well, I hope a cheese loving person took this baby home and is enjoying it.
Where: Value Village
Why I loved it: In case you haven't noticed, I have a serious love for cute knick-knacks.
Why I didn't buy it: This little cutie was in the "Collectables" section and was waaaay too expensive for me. Especially because it was not in mint condition. Sometimes Value Village pricing can be nuts.
Do I wish I bought it: I wish it had have been like, $1.00. I do not wish I had have bought it for $15-$20.
What: Cat statue
Why I loved it: It's a cat sticking it's tongue out! What's not to love?
Why I didn't buy it: Although I thought it was awesome it also freaked me out a little. Also, it was fairly large and I didn't know where I would put it.
Do I wish I bought it: No, I'm good.
That was fun! However, it was a teensy bit painful to see that mushroom cheese plate again. I will definitely be doing this again to show you some other treasures I have passed on and how I feel about it now.
