I love Friday's !!! Friday is normally my day off (yes, I get three day weekends) and I must say, I absolutely love that! It allows me more time for "any and all things creative". On most Friday's I like to lounge in bed a little longer, have a coffee, read a little...then venture out into the world of thrift.
This second post of Frugal Frenchie's Friday Finds (now that I've decided to make it a regular thing) will be a bit longer as I'd like to take you on a little "tour" of some of my favourite places, I hope you don't mind...it is just a short 10 minute walk from my front door, follow me...:)
There are a few thrift stores one of which is housed in a cute old church,
(remember: Thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste)
and a great little old fashioned style "General Store" that sells used items.
Steveston Village is made up of a wonderful collection of shops,
cafes, restaurants and boutiques.
|love these XL beach bags!|
|I'm the one in the lighter shade of red. (hee hee)|
The large lanterns are absolutely gorgeous!
|(I got one of these porthole mirrors at a garage sale for $5)|
|I'd love to try my hand at painting this...|
All are very close to the docks where fresh seafood can be bought right off the boat.
Not to mention the beach is right there...
It is a wonderful, historic little village with "oodles" of charm, and a great area to live in. I LOVE where we live.
Now, down to the "Nitty Gritty"....
