Thrifting with Gina

One weekend, back in November, one of my best friends and I had an awesome Saturday full of thrifting and memories.
We hit up the farmers market first and got some free bagels from a great French bakery and Gina picked up a lovely piece of pottery as well.

This puppy was at the farmers market and he was quite the adorable little thing, let me tell you. My family bred English Springer Spaniels (like the one in the photos above) and they will always hold a certain place in my heart. Plus, there's just something about puppy kisses, isn't there?

After the farmers market, we headed to the main event of the day - the outdoor sale at the antique mall I thrift at frequently. It was AWESOME. We found quite a few treasures; some went home with us, others had to be left behind. We did score quite a bit of jewelry though. I found a pretty bracelet and pin while Gina found that killer birds nest pin.

That little box just wouldn't open up no matter how hard we tried!

I thought of you, Caela, in your search for a children's book holder like you've seen on Etsy. Wish I could afford to ship it to you!

Usually on the second Saturday of the month when the antique mall holds its sale, I forget about it. But I'm very happy I remembered then and spent a wonderful, warm November day with a great friend.
