Farmyard

I saw Dr Handsome today – oh lordy that man is handsome. (I’ll talk about it next time) We left the house early because I wanted to go thrifting first – what a waste of time. The best thrift store I know of was a complete waste of time. The prices are a joke and even the staff think so. Apparently nothing is selling at either branch but the head honchos think the prices are right. They are full to the rafters with furniture and when it costs $210 for a second hand mattress and bed base in good condition (poor condition costs over $100!) you can see why they are doing so badly. The next place I went to had slim pickings and looked really understocked. The last place (the other branch of the first place) offended me actually – $2-$3 for a sewing pattern? Not a chance. I did however find one little gem – the sort of thing that is so awesome it just managed to save a rather bad thrifting trip. A wooden farmyard set:

There’s very minor damage to one stable wall but otherwise it’s in excellent condition.

Those red things are dogs if you’re wondering. I thought they were sharks at first – but then I decided that since sharks might not be in many farmyards they must be dogs. Thy’re rather….abstract.

    thats a wonderful farm set 🙂

  3. What a cute little set! I noticed the last time I went thrifting that prices are the same way around here… It was like they were trying to set their prices as if they were an antique shop instead of a thrift store… Crazy 🙂

    LOL for sharks! though i can see how you thought that, dogs do make more sense unless the sharks have legs and can breathe out of water 😉

    such a tease not telling us about dr. handsome & how your appointment went.
