Utensils, spoons, knives, forks, prongs, you name it, you can find them in the thrift shops. But just like your own home, there are WAY more knives and forks than there are spoons. Spoons are like socks, they disappear. Maybe there is a spoon Burning Man festival, they all head there and disintegrate in a flash of utensil rebellion.
Then there's Ugly - yes, downright Fugly, there is a reason some of that stuff ends up thrifted. NO ONE WANTS IT (ok someone eventually wants it). Yep, I said it. Frequent visitor that I am, I get a sense of what has stayed on the shelves and, amazingly enough, all of the merchandise is sold.
Rose afficianados - I'm holding a hybrid tea rose named Antigua.
Outfit details: Shaver Lake Sleeveless collared pink button-up shirt and Hillard and Hanson brown knit skirt (both thrifted), L.L. Bean sweater (a mom hand-me-down), and Giani Bernini sandals (retail). I sooo love these shoes. I think they are very attractive and right on trend.
