August Break: Day Twenty-Six

Giant vintage area carpet ... you have no idea how much I wish I brought it home!

Oh so retro flower power Postcards album - filled with vintage postcards! Score!
 Fill a Bag day at the thrift shop!
feeling Lucky? grab a garbage bag, fill it up, and thrift your hearts out! Busy Bees style!
When you run out of cash...
This is what it looks like when you scrape the bottom of your purse to pay for thrifty goodness.
The above change paid for a Polaroid SX70 & a mint vintage Brownie. Colour me happy!

MmmMmm - greasy spoon restaurant coffee!
Lucky & I
post-Busy Bees thrift craze = happy (but hungry) ladies!

Lucky & I spent the day thrift shopping yesterday. And so today's August Break is brought to you by thrifty goodness! Is there anything better than digging through piles of crap to find that diamond-in-the-rough?
(that is a rhetorical question, because obviously the answer is "no ma'am! nothing better!")

Busy Bees is a happy place found in Campbellford, Ontario. It's only open in the summer months.
We happened to arrive on a "fill a bag for a few bucks" day. So we took said bags, filled 'em up, and went to town! I could've filled 3 garbage bags worth of goodies, but I only filled one - the seams were busting!
I have a deep urge to go back and fill a few more bags, but I'm all thrifted out.
(um, that's a lie, I'm going yard saling tomorrow ... a girl can never be "thrifted out")

If you're thrifting over the weekend, may the thrift Force be with you!
