One of the things I love to do on vacation is thrift shop. It’s just fun to see what other communities support in terms of charities and what people donate. One of the unique opportunities I’ve had is to revisit a thrift shop in Oliver, BC, where my family vacations each summer.
The Hospital Auxiliary thrift shop is a good sized store with really friendly volunteers. Things are very reasonably priced a you’ll see below. The special this week was to fill a bag with books for $5 – but I didn’t find any books I particularly wanted. (Hard to believe, I know.) Still, I came home with a few gems.
My sister bought this pretty glass bowl for me, so that I can put some of the seashells and rocks that I collected on my recent trip to Scotland in it and set it on my desk at work. I love how it catches the light.
Someone who shops at Cleo was cleaning out her closet – hurray for me! I like Cleo clothing, it’s good quality stuff and most of it is fairly classic. I got this banded cardigan for $4.50 – it’s like new and I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of it.
Have you found any great thrift shops on your travels this summer?
