What a pleasant surprise it was to run into a fellow vegan; we noticed the badge on her coat sleeve while browsing through an antique shop and after a little chat I invited Carolyn to be a guest on my blog! She’s been busy making her own clothes from hoodies to tank tops!
I’d be a minimalist if it wasn’t for the fact that I’m an avid collector.
Whether in Seattle, San Fransisco, New York, Germany or around Southern Ontario (where I live), searching for treasures and unique things is something I’ve always enjoyed.
We have several places not far from home and with the weather being so cold and dreary in March, it’s a good time to look for treasures. I bought this red velvet jacket for $25. and the bracelet for $15. and the telephone for $15. We enjoyed lunch in the retro diner after shopping (see the two photos with the old LP records).
Jean took us to the Pacific Antique Mall in Seattle. There’s always a bear that needs to be rescued, but I left this one for someone else to rescue. Hope he got a good home!
Last time in San Francisco, we went to one of the largest antique road shows in America; vendors brought their antiques from all over the country. This show was for wealthy people who can afford tables for $5,000 and a bowl for $1,200. It was like a museum with items way out of our price range.
As soon as the weather gets warm enough for outdoor flea markets, we’ll take a trip to Aberfoyle–Canada’s largest outdoor antique market.
