While I was in Ohio the thrift queen herself took me to one of the most amazing places on Earth. Kaylah and I went and met her mom at a mega huge, annual sale where you can find just about everything you could ever want to thrift. We all got there really early so we had time to get in line, hang around, chat and people watch which is one of my favourite activities. Kaylah's mom is really awesome by the way and it was so great to meet her! Ok, back to the thrift finds. There was so much amazing stuff!
I really love this daisy blanket but when Ivan saw it he told me that he thought it would look really good in the shed. The way he said it was too funny for me to get mad but sorry Ivan, this guy is staying inside.
On top of the blanket is some really awesome paper that I am going to use to brighten up our built in unit in the kitchen as well as the hutch in the living room. I have actually already papered the hutch and I will share photos soonish.
I am so excited about this find! I have been dying for one of these cute plastic mail holders for the kitchen and this one just happened to be the perfect colour.
Ever since I inherited more cameras than anyone needs I have been following a strict "no more cameras" rule. But...Brownie cameras are my absolute favourite and the prices were just too good!
Kaylah also talked me into getting a Land Camera that takes AA batteries. Ok, it didn't take much convincing. When we got home Kaylah gave me a pack of black & white film to test it out and to make a long story short we figured out that this particular model only takes colour film. So...Kaylah sent me home with one of her extra land cameras that shoots black and white as well as colour.
I am already super duper in love with this camera. I ordered myself some film and I can't wait to shoot tons. The photos remind me of the ones from my grandparents albums.
One of my favourite finds was this bag that only cost me $0.50. Yep, 50 cents. It is in great shape, has the perfect back pocket for holding photobooth photos, is large enough for at least two cameras and even came with a used pair of pantyhose! Ok, so maybe that last part was not a bonus.
There is one last find, definitely the most amazing, but you will have to check out Kaylah's post to see what it is. Finding it and realizing what it was was kind of a joint effort and to save our friendship Kaylah and I decided to share it. You'll see why.
I'm sure I am forgetting to share an amazing find. I really need to make a list of my thrift finds, especially when I am travelling and everything gets packed up into different bags on the way home.
On a side note...something slightly embarrassing/funny happened during this thrift adventure. An extremely sweet girl saw Kaylah and I on the other side of an aisle and said "Hey, I read both of your blogs!". To which Kaylah & I replied (respectively)..."Ohhhhhh!" "Hiiii!" We are so eloquent. We were absolutely not expecting to run into anyone there and it was so intense and crowded that we were completely caught off guard by this awesomely nice gal. We were all laughing during this short interchange so hopefully she is still reading our blogs to see this and know that thanks to her we will always be prepared to see a blog reader and will always be ready to respond like proper human beings.
Have you found anything awesome lately? Do you have an embarrassing story about meeting a blogger/blog reader?
