But then, she reminded me that we like re-using and re-purposing things anyway. That that is a philosophy we already hold. I remember when we were cleaning out our house in Boulder, taking things to the Goodwill and seeing so much perfectly good stuff being discarded and I thought to myself at that moment - I never need to buy a new thing again.
|The looks on their faces pretty much say it all these days|
So, in a moment, my mindset shifted and I returned to my usual way of looking at thrift stores - as places with hidden treasures. I've always enjoyed second-hand stores and thrift shops and definitely antique shops and I still do.
On this first trip I found two silver pieces of flatware, with initials and a date and all. I can only imagine the journey these two pieces had but I am excited to add them to my daily life and see them for the treasures they are.
I'm excited to share more of my treasures as I find them!
