Raise a thrifted glass to Toronto Yard Sale Snoop's 100th post!
Well, I've made it to my 100th post. This only means two things: I shop too much and I yap a lot. Thankfully, I'm in good company. To celebrate this modest milestone, I am borrowing Sonya's (Dimestore Thrift) fantastic idea of thrifting for a lucky winner. As some of you know, I won Sonya's contest last month and her Day of the Dead treasures made me so happy. I'd love to do the same for someone else.
Contest "Rules" (I normally hate rules)
1. You must either already be a follower of my blog, or take the opportunity to become a follower.
2. Write me a comment telling me about your thrifting passion(s). In other words, what do you collect? I'll do my best to make the winner happy, but I'm on a teacher's budget, so please don't ask for that Art Deco dining room table you've always wanted.
3. This contest is open to anyone anywhere in the world.
4. If you have a blog, please add me to your blog list and if I haven't already done so, let me know and I'll do the same.
One week from now, I'll put the names into an old bowl that I've thrifted and I'll have my son pick the winner. Oh yeah, one entry per person. All the best, Erin.
It's Thanksgiving in Canada tomorrow. We had to pick up a few last grocery items at the No Frills at Golden Mile. As luck would have it, that store is beside the Value Village near my school - the same one I had bad luck at on Friday. Today was a different story. To make matters luckier, Duncan opted to stay in the car with daddy for the first time. This meant, no toy department diversions.
I loved this little Anchor Hocking mini mixing bowl ($1.99).
The apricot colour changes hue depending on the light.
I bought this rather busy 1972 Jungle Habitat plate. It's got Warner Bros. stamped all over it.
Close up of centre.
Bear with me, I'm not done yet.
Okay, read this description on the back. Was this place an animal theme park? Does it still exist? Does anyone know anything about the Jungle Habitat? The plate cost $2.99. I cleaned it up and it already has chocolate chip Halloween cookies on it.
I grabbed these 19th hole glasses. I wish there had been more in the set, but at least there's one for each of us. They cost .69 each. Wow!
The next two items aren't thrifted or old, but I like them anyway. This glittery Halloween sign came from the dollar department at No Frills. It looks cool already. In 30 years time, it will look even cooler.
Here's our minimalist Ikea teapot. I just made a tea and I thought I'd share this on the blog. Don't you love the design? I'm pretty sure they still have them in stock. I believe it was $9.99. You do need to use the rubber spout piece, or else the tea drips everywhere.
