So for a few hours I was off to do as I pleased. I hit a local thrift shop and actually came out empty handed, I know, crazy! Then it was on to Manitou Springs to walk around and people watch and hit a few little shops.
This one always has great plants.
As soon as I find the right vintage planter I will be going back there for this guy.
Again, I left empty handed. Next I popped into Old Colorado City to check out this store that I can't stand and don't know why I even go in. This guy is basically a serious hoarder who needed an excuse to rent a retail space. Everything is high: the piles, the prices and probably the owner.
This is the Pyrex he had priced like gold (that primary set was in terrible dishwashered like crazy shape and he wanted $100 for it!), but treated like crap:
So I again left empty handed and this time annoyed. I was ready to head home but then realized I had skipped my favorite thrift shop, so I boogied on over. I'm glad I did because I found a few cool things.
This table lamp combo is just what I need in my sun room! It uses the biggest bulb I've ever seen. I will probably have to go to a specialty shop to replace it. And I also found a cool metal file box
Tomorrow I will be going to an antique mall to check out a small space, so wish me luck!
