My lovely friend Charlotte was in town for a few days and it was basically understood without talking about it that a lunch and thrifting date would be in the books. This girl, she cracks me up endlessly and I couldn't wait to just sit and talk with her for a bit. As much as I keep up with her via the blogworld, nothing is the same as seeing your friend in person. Because then at least you're laughing with someone and not just at a computer screen. Am I right?!?
We met for lunch at Aladdins where we discussed the pros and cons of our mutual friend Ruby Woo and the endless choices and responsibilities of adult life. Babies. Moving. Jobs. Careers. Shopping budgets. Creepy waiters. You name it. :)
Rachel met us after at our favorite spot for thrifty finds and we strolled the aisles obnoxiously laughing and snapping photos, much to the dismay of the other customers I'm sure.
|You can't beat a blazer with used Certs in the pocket! Score!!|
|Ohhhhh housewares. My favorite aisle.|
|We believed this woman to be modeling her stockings via a tacky seventies porn film set, just in case you're wondering.|
We all found keepers, with Charlotte in the lead only buying what she could carry in her arms *since she's moving and all*. I suppose I should try that out sometime, as I always end up with a cart full. As does Rachel. And we share a cart too, so you do the math.
I think my most favorite find of the day is that little owlie up there. He beckoned from the far reaches of a lonely cart shelf, where I spotted his little ears sticking up from above the mass of teacups.
I lover him.
Charlotte got a cuuuuute plate, pretty purple sweater and maybe a few other things, I can't remember. The owl!! Did you see him?!! Totally distracted.
You can see Rachel's finds here. We made out pretty well I think. Again, much to the dismay of the other shoppers.
I think the thrifting gods were in rare form yesterday as I do believe I scored the vintage jackpot. We all know I have a soft spot for vintage treasures. Which makes up for the last few dismal trips of one or two items that I wasn't even all that super excited about.
Checks back laterrrrr and Ill show you what I came home with.
I shall not disappoint, promise.
Thanks for coming to visit Charlotte!!!!!!!!!! Next time it's Rachel and I visiting you in Denver. Done and settled, get the guest room ready. Because I seriously feel like I'm missing out not living within thrifting distance of you. Miss you already!
