Thrifting makes me happy...

Went thrift store shopping today looking for props for the photoshoot for the new book. Didn't find anything I needed but I did score a lot of good stuff!! I've been searching and searching for a new 'bag around town' purse and found this bowling bag. I think it will work great!!
I also found some great records. I'm listening to The Headpins right now...

This is for those of you who are unfamiliar with The Headpins.

Then I found this AMAZING diner sign that I'm going to hang over Samantha... love it!!
I also found a purse that reminds me of a vintage Cadillac. :)
I found a giant stack of vintage bingo cards and resisted the urge to buy them all and only bought two. I'm quite proud of my restraint...
And the craziest heaviest chrome mixer!! If only it had the mixer-thingys... I think I may take this item back to VV. I went all over town trying to find beater-thingys that fit and no luck. I don't want a mixer without beaters... hmmmmm.
And lastly a vintage tin of Children's Meggezones.... so funny and not vegan!

Now to find the things I REALLY need...

OMG! The Headpins? I haven't heard them since the '80's. I saw them in concert (believe it or not) when I was in high school. They were opening for Bryan Adams or Max Webster or Loverboy or some such Canadian band. Darby Mills has a killer voice. That video was soooooo lame. Ha! I love it! Thanks for the memories Sarah.

No don't return the mixer! I'm sure you can find beaters for it, if not in Vic than online! Its so pretty...otherwise wanna mail it to Calgary? ;) Cus it matches my vintage hand mixer...

If you decide to take the mixer back but still want a working one, I have seen a few similar ones on eBay with beaters, bowls, and everything that are around $40. Good luck!
