My family goes to Oliver BC each year and spends a week at Lake Side Resort. This sounds very glamorous but it’s not really; Lake Side is simply that a place on Tuc el Nuit Lake (shallow and quiet, no motor boats allowed) with camping, cabanas and a motel unit. My mom, sister and our kids always try and hit the thrift shop in town when we’re there.
The Hospital Thrift Shop in Oliver supports the local hospital (duh) and is a sweet little shop completely run by volunteers. Nothing is overpriced, there’s no “boutique” section where they put name-brand stuff and my mom discovered that if the lady at the till is appalled by a spot on a sweater, she’ll give it to you for free!
I got this Aldo leather purse for a dollar (instead of its $2 price tag) because it had a Kleenex in it. (Egads!) It’s an unusual blue-grey colour and has lots of compartments, which I like.
My sister found this Reitmans jean skirt on the rack for me – I love shopping with her. She has great-find-radar.
I scooped up this trio of leaf plates on my way to the til – three plates for $1, made by Thelma. They will look so nice on my coffee table this fall.
I’ll share more about our GREAT Osoyoos find later this week. If you want to check out some more fun finds, visit Thrift Core and see what Van found at flea markets in Florida.
