Sir Thrift-A-Lot ♥

Wednesday, September 7, 2016

Peace guys! I hope everyone is groovy!

Both these pieces were found in the same store months apart. The kitty is missing something (probably a ball of yarn if vintage experience has taught me anything), but displayed correctly you can't tell! 

A couple things about me in the past year & a half...

I have become single. I threw out 39 bags of vintage goods in March when I was trying to save my relationship/engagement. Sold majority of my Pyrex collection, but most of it went to good homes! I have collected some nice pieces since. I didn't step into a thrift store for over a month! Whaaaa? 

I lost 100 pounds..
But put on 15 when I moved to Windsor.
I hurt my back & then my foot, so couldn't work out. I know, right?

& yes, I am no longer in Toronto. Thrifting up the Windsor Detroit area. Always a good time! Hope ya'll are good.
