I had a weird mid-day doctor's appointment today about a possible respiratory infection. She kept me waiting over an hour and then I had to have chest x-rays and get a prescription. In short, I spent the better part of the day getting caught up on my reading, while being tormented by the soft sounds of E-Z Rock. To cheer myself up, I got a big bucket of bubble tea and hit Value Village, looking for a Halloween costume. It was there that I saw the exact Pyrex divided dish you'll see above, that I bought at the Value Village in St. Catharines for $9.99, but the VV in Toronto had the cheek to ask $12.99. One woman kept hovering over it. She moved away for a minute and I picked it up and actually considered buying it. I decided against it, since I don't really need two of a kind. The woman moved back in. I hope that article I wrote about Pyrex didn't alert the pricing people at thrift stores to jack up the prices. Eesh!
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).
