"Nu~to~U" which was only open 2 days a week.
My BFF and I went early before the 10am scheduled opening and stood behind a few locals in a line that snaked it's way out the door and down the steps. I thought to myself as we waited that this must be one fabulous shop if the locals were queuing well before the doors were open.
She's made with recycled finds
love that aluminum teapot cover
can you spot it?
This female form certainly was a conversation starter!
On my first visit I found a wee watercolour of roses
which I plan to hang on the wall of our guest room.
a brooch with two scottie dogs made out of bakelite
On Labour Day Weekend
lovely daughter and I paid this wee shop another visit.
This time we found ourselves way at the very bottom of the stairs with probably 20 people ahead of us.
Listening in to the local gossip was incredibly entertaining
I suppose living on a small island means that everyone knows what everyone else is doing!
(there was some pretty interesting chatter with some very personal details going public)
When they opened the doors there was quite a surge
as people entered the shop and scouted out the tables and shelves
it was rather difficult negotiating the tiny aisles
and I spied a black handbag
that no one else seemed to be interested in...
I bought it!
a simple style
do you recognize the logo?
Tory Burch design
Dena Glazed Hobo Bag.
a mirror inside
with pockets for keys and a cellphone
(the mirror still had the protective film on it)
I think this bag is brand new.
You can see it here at Saks for much more than I paid.
After we shopped the Thrift Store we went grocery shopping and my Roots cross body bag's strap broke!
It must have been meant for me.
I have taken the Roots bag in for repair and in the meantime I am enjoying this Tory Burch Bag
and I am feeling a little smug about the fact that I did not have to pay the regular retail price of this bag.
It's a guilt free pleasure!
What have you been fortunate enough to find at a thrift shop?
What is your best score ever?
Hope your week is off to a great start!
