Today I’m going to share a few items that I’ve found in the last couple of months that, to me, are treasures. They say “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” (and wouldn’t Another Man’s Treasure be a great name for a thrift shop?) and this may be where these 3 pieces prove that best.
This gorgeous long-sleeved t-shirt has already become a go-to staple in my wardrobe. It’s the perfect season-transition piece because it’s long sleeved but not heavy. The Indian-inspired print gives it an exotic touch and I just feel beautiful when I’m wearing it. When I love something this much it always makes me wonder why someone parted with it – but there it is: one woman’s trash became my treasure.
This little ceramic vase is going to my sister. I absolutely adore it but the colours don’t work in my home whereas it suits my sister’s place perfectly with its Cape Cod feel. She’s got nautical touches everywhere and I think this will fit in beautifully.
And lastly, this t-shirt. My son attends North Vancouver’s Capilano University and the Blues are their soccer team. This week, I was going to a Whitecaps game with him and went to several thrift shops looking for anything Whitecaps that I could wear to the game. I found nothing with the Caps logo on it but when I came across this one, I had to have it. The colours work for the Caps and hey, it’s my son’s school, it’s their soccer team, and I found it in Abbotsford. Definitely treasure. Also, the Whitecaps won over Chivas USA 4-0.
What’s your latest trash-treasure piece?
