FAVORITE SHOP OTD
The Folk Art Interiors established in the 80’s was a treasure-trove. Located in a TIME WORN building, it has been a main stay in the Point Grey area for over 20 years. I SPIED WITH MY LITTLE EYE vintage hats, raggedy quilts and silver thimbles. HERE
Jan, pronounced Yann, a Polish/Canadian was minding the store for the owner. Handsome and I had a enthralling conversation with him. Honest-to-goodness, some connections
GET US TOGETHER.

FAVORITE THRIFT SHOP FIND OTD
The Salvation Army Thrift Store on 2714 West Broadway was where I found my set of vintage measuring spoons.
After a thorough cleaning with BonAmi, half and a quarter are becoming a pair of wabi-sabi earrings.
This cook measures with the palm of her hand.
