Quite an ordinary week. Started and ended with flea markets and thrift stores. Work, cleaning, cooking and all the boring stuff in between. Some creative planning, but not a lot of creative persuing. This all makes for a very useless blog post, but I've committed. Tomorrow we're going to the zoo though and I'll hopefully... Continue Reading →
Sunday Eric and I went to the Coliseum Roadshow, a toy and comic show. We left empty handed since it was more geared to comic fans. But we then went over to Cool Stuff Vintage and I got some cool minis. Monday and Tuesday were all about work, blogging and watching Hoarders. Wednesday, bright and... Continue Reading →

My mom and I finally went to check out the Bayard Antique Village last week. While we only recently became aware of it, the location itself has existed since 1949.
