Garage sales and flea markets can be fabulous for retail therapy, especially when trying to curb your spending (ouch). Obviously, I didn’t need any of this things but this shopping trip was a nice treat! For a total of about $45 I found, besides happiness, a pair of 60’s chairs, vintage souvenir cushion, Enid Collins wood “purse”, RCMP toffee tin, and a second hand Ikea small storage box.
I’ve always preferred a mix of vintage with new(ish). Rob’s the same way, thankfully. It’s great to be able to reuse and repurpose bits from the past.
With a bit of vintage wallpaper, I changed the drawer fronts on the Ikea storage box. It now houses printer paper, stationary, and postage stamps. I think it looks rather happy now!
Instead of digging around for nail polish and emery boards, I can now find all my nail supplies in my Enid Collins “purse”.
