New Home...New Hobby
So, Will and I purchased a condo on Bear Mountain this Spring. We moved in to our new place in June and are now working on making it our own. Given that we are now paying a mortgage, I am fairly poor. However, I have been finding new and interesting ways to decorate our new home through 'thrifting'. I have spent the last few Saturdays driving around with Penny to numerous garage sales and thrift stores. I must say that the majority of the garage sales are pretty disappointing but I have found a few gems including an large IKEA bookshelf for our office, and a hamburger phone (no clue what I will do with that but I had to buy it...it was a hamburger phone for $4!!!). I am becoming a frequent visitor to Salvation Armys and other thrift stores across Victoria. I love them...it takes some digging (through a lot of crap) but every so often, you find a gem.
Do you have any thrifting stories, suggestions or recommendations?
P.S. I will post pic of my garage sale and thrift store finds later this week! I will also include some photos of the new condo :)
