The first thing I wanna do when the lockdown is over is go to a bunch of the town’s antique stores. My partner and I had just started finding some good antique and thrift stores before this whole mess and I miss looking around at all the old stuff
The Never Ending - Second Hand
Monster High Doll at thrift
back when MH was good
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson (1994 edition)
This is probably close to the perfect “thrift” store though it’s more than a thrift store. First, it’s quite large. The main store contains nicer furniture, clothes, accessories, china, arts and crafts, books (6 soft cover books for $1), toys, jewelry, and a boutique with higher end clothing, shoes, and lots of wedding dresses. The Annex is a separate building with lots of furniture, VHS tapes, CDs, dishes, rugs, lamps, luggage, electronics, art, and sports equipment. And the proceeds support the Senior Care Network. They have genuine antiques, consignment goods, and nicer furniture than you usually see at a thrift store. Think about all the homes this place is near – e.g., in San Marino and the nicer parts of Pasadena. Some of that furniture winds up here.
The clothing outside of the boutique area was okay – actually it wasn’t as nice as I expected. The boutique has cashmere sweaters, cocktail dresses, and some designer purses (Bally, Ferragamo) in the cabinet. Talbots seems popular with their donors.
I think some of the furniture is very nice but it’s for larger homes. If you want a nice china cabinet, I bet you can find one here and the china to fill it. The prices are a little higher but the quality is better. The hours are pretty bad though – it’s only open on weekdays from 10 AM - 4 PM.

Já que estou em casa resolvi organizar meu guarda roupas e dar uma vida útil maior para os itens que não uso mais. Criei um perfil Upcycling @irissloja … Confere lá … Ainda estou me organizando e tem muita coisa legal.
Espero que essas peças que já me acompanharam em muitos momentos agora levem alegria a você.
