A thrifting we will go!


Yesterday on our jaunt to Leduc, Zach and I hit a couple of thrift stores.
Here are a few photos of some of the things that our eyes beheld ...

Aliens-in-a-Jar??!


World's ugliest clock. It appears to be a cross between a horrid leather shield and a 80s designer sculpty clay apparition thingie. Ghastly!

And up-to-date computer software ... Windows 2000!

Zach also discovered a Master Chief Helmet which was an add on to a popular videogame series, Halo.

He wasn't quite sure why, but he felt the need to purchase this baby.

And here are our other purchases at the end of the day ...
A gigantic koala bear, retro suitcase, Chicken Soup for the Golden Soul (a little something for my mother-in-law who loves the series), 3 volumes on the history of the Province of Alberta (late 1800s - 1914). A 25 cent bunch of fakies (flowers), an adorable hand-stitched bunny, and of course, Zach's helmet.

Good finds, though! Not the aliens, the books, helmet, teddy bear.....Those Alberta history books are great! I love them. Wish I would have paid thrift store prices for them, though. Maybe that's where I should complete the set?

That wonderful bunny alone would make it a successful thrift trip!
