I spent last week in Oliver, BC where we holiday each summer with my side of the family. The significance there is that I am holidaying with folks who are as excited about thrift shopping as I am. While most folks visit the Okanagan to go wine touring (which we do too), my family goes thrift shop touring. We visited the Oliver Hospital Auxiliary thrift shop again and the Osoyoos United Church Thrift shop, both of which I blogged about last year.
I wasn’t as successful this year, although I did pick up a pair of shorts and this cool silk bag, for which I am going to find an interesting button to replace the missing clasp.
My son decided to take “blue suede shoes” up a notch and found this blue suede blazer. It actually looks pretty stylin’ when it’s on him ( I may be a little bit biased here, forgive me.) He also got a tie and a pair of soccer shorts.
On the way home, we always stop in Hedley, where they offer a really cool sounding mine tour that I’m going to do some day. Until then, we content ourselves with the yard sale that seems to happen on whatever Sunday we drive through there. (How do they know we’re coming?)
Aaron scored again, picking up the There will be blood DVD…
and the classic Chariots of the Gods – was God an astronaut? This just made me think of Larry Norman’s UFO song, which gives the definitive answer on that.
How have your thrift adventures gone this summer?
