On Saturday, I started my new summer hobby. Cruising garage sales. I only went to a few but I had great luck at one in Old Strathcona. I picked up some great vintage items - all for $15. I probably could have taken home a few more things with me if I had any more cash but I was pretty happy with the little haul that I found. I saw the wool blanket first. Not long after the garage sale, I came across a similar blanket at the Farmers' Market that was being sold for $70. Mine was $5. Pretty awesome. The woman who was having the sale had great books too. We have very similar taste in books. I came across the coat last. She had fantastic clothes. A few really beautiful vintage pieces and I love the colour of this velvet coat. Can't wait for next weekend!
