A couple of weeks ago I had a chance to visit an area of White Rock to which I had never been and wouldn’t you know it, there was a really cute little thrift shop right across the street from my lunch place. Naturally, I had to stop.
The World Serve Thrift Store supports churches worldwide with pastoral training and Bible distribution as well as famine relief, community health initiatives, micro-business projects and more. It is a uniquely Canadian ministry and one of the ways they support their work is with 3 thrift shops, one here in BC, one in Alberta and one in Saskatchewan.
The displays were very well done, clothing nicely organized, and the fitting rooms were a good size too.
I scored some nice things: a pair of brand new Dockers for my sweetheart and a brand new bra for me. Dear reader, neither of us are going to model those things for you. Sorry.
But I will show you this score: I found these beautiful Clark sandals for just $6. If only I’d found them a week earlier! These were exactly what I needed for a garden wedding I attended recently. But no matter, I’ve worn them quite a bit already. They are comfortable and pretty and in such great shape!
And here’s a bonus for you: aren’t my nails pretty too? I get the best pedicures at Nail Queens: nails and cuticles trimmed, foot and leg massage (with hands AND with hot rocks), all the dry skin and callouses dealt with and then this artistry, all done free hand. It only costs me $35 for all of this and for me, it’s worth it for the foot care alone; the pretty nails are just a bonus.
Have you just happened upon a thrift shop on your adventures this summer? Tell me where!
