This Week In Thrifting
I went to the Lansdowne Value Village last week. I got some very fun finds, starting with this brightly-coloured cotton top from COS.
These vintage cherry red glass clip on earrings also provide a pop of colour.
Because I can’t resist character watches, i also brought home this 1998 Marvin the Martian Looney Tunes timepiece by Armitron. The green dial, dive watch aesthetic, and blacked out case also appealed to me.
The best score was this dress by cult knitwear designer Lauren Mangoonian. Its cotton and has pockets so it met my strict acceptable purchase policies.
Less successful was my trip to the new Value Village Boutique at Queen and Bathurst. I one hundred percent did not like the ambiance (no flow), selection (it purports to be curated but it was mostly Halloween costume quality fast fashion clothing), or the prices.
