I didn't get to any sales yesterday due to a combination of year-end school fatigue, needing to shop for a new dryer, and a lack of sales in the neighbourhood. I did a little junking last night. I'll try to remember to photograph the wooden chair I scored later. By the way; when did garbage picking become junking? Today is a rainy Sunday. I'm not sure what we'll get up to. To clean, or not to clean?
Here's one of my new favourite bands - Ladyhawke, from New Zealand. I used to play the CD in my class this past year when the kids were creating art. I love the Thelma and Louise inspired video. Dig.
I'm a slightly off-beat Toronto-area teacher who enjoys writing and photography. I come from a family of collectors and now I'm dragging my own family around to yard sales. It's just a bit of fun. Enjoy the scenes.
My husband and I stock a booth rammed to the rafters with vintage treasures at Valley Antiques in charming Dundas, Ontario. It's a few kilometers west of Hamilton. Come visit this best kept secret in Southern Ontario and swing by Valley Antiques. There are over 50 vendors selling cool and beautiful things and you won't be paying Toronto prices (speaking as a former Hogtown gal).
