Yo-hoo for 2nd hand shopping!!!
Clear blue skies, bright sun, snow that's white as... well, snow! Perfect day to hit some 2nd hand stores! Actually, are there any days that are NOT perfect for 2nd hand shopping?? When I grew up in Sweden I never ever even thought about the option of digging through some strangers old "junk"! If they were not good enough for them, why would I want them??? Well. After living for 13 years in a Canadian city, bordering to the USA, I got to experience lots of 2nd handing, and well, you know the rest is history! It's so exciting not knowing what you'll find, and now, living in Finland, I have been lucky enough to find a few pretty good places to go on treasure hunts at... SO MUCH FUN!!! As you can see I got some really neat stuff... When we moved from Canada we left a big portion of our furniture behind (the couple that bought our house also purchased a lot of the furnitures in it), so now I'm on lookout for new stuff, preferably used goods in good shape.
I love these orange chairs, and the orange tablecloth with the little crocheted edge on it is SO funky! The big throw is handknit and will look neat anywhere. The cute fabric draped over the chair above was found by My Oldest girl, I bet we'll find good use for it!
