I’ve blogged about travel and thrift a few times, including this time when a friend blogged about how thrift shops provided her baby with clothes when the family went on holidays and forgot the baby’s clothing at home.
I had something a little similar happen to me back in May when I traveled back east for a wedding in Winnipeg and then on to Ottawa for a family vacation. I had not anticipated how very warm it would be in Ottawa and hadn’t packed accordingly. I was facing a week of sweat-laden discomfort (which, when you’re 49 is already a common enough occurence.)
Luckily, Ottawa has several excellent thrift shops and I got these two great items at the Goodwill.
These Northern Reflections shorts are really comfy and in like-new condition.
This funky skirt is made in Nepal, 100% cotton and super comfortable. The only thing I have to be careful with is washing; I hand-wash it because it seems to let nearly all its dye go when it hits water! But I love the feel of it when I wear it.
Has a thrift shop rescued you on your vacation?
