It’s a sunny Sunday here in Western Canada, and what a better way to spend it treasure-hunting at our local thrift shop.
I am fond of visiting thrift shops in my spare time. I find it relaxing and fun to browse what’s in store, especially in the books and art sections, which are my all-time favorite. It’s also a great way to support a local community project that feeds many mouths, shelters warm bodies regardless of the time of year, and fosters various social and economic activities.
My Awesome Finds
Have a look at what I found!
First, a Batik dye-resist fabric with a woman figure as the centerpiece.
It was in the arts section, sitting inconspicuously on the edge of a stack of framed art and photographs. It measures 18″X36″ in size.
Guess how much I got it for? A measly Cdn$2.50!
It was priced at Cdn$5 (or US$6.76) but since the yellow tag is half off today, I got it for way less but even the original price is an incredulous steal.
Second, Joanna Basford’s Secret Garden Artist’s Edition coloring book!
It has 20 drawings in it with only 4 pages colored. Not bad, considering that the book is priced at US$22.50 and definitely more expensive in Canada.
The price? Cdn$2!
Not a bad Sunday escapade, after all, don’t you think?
How about you?
Do thrift shops fancy you?

I would love to hear your side of the story.
